As a shining light in the darkness of a night on the great lakes, so to does this beer reflect a light house serving as a beacon for the lost and weary. Sliding off the cap, I'm met the with jovial and familiar scent of hops and malted goodness in a way unique to the kind folks at the Great Lakes Brewing Co. The beer pours like silk but reminds one of primordial ooze, and as such nourishes as a delight strewn from the depths of mother earth's replenishing fluids and karma. You've had beers and black lagers and other assorted alchemy from micro-brewers across our great nation, but a porter like this ultimately becomes sacred and holy. Bless Edmund Fitzgerald, and all of his noble servants.

Dark but light enough for Amber to shine around the edges of the glass.. A/T feels more a mix between an Amber and porter.. caramel, slightly roasted malt, earthy herbal tea bitttnerness.. Good beer glad I have five more.
