On-tap exclusive at the brewery.

A very interesting historical beer. Supposedly harkens to George Washington. I am not a great taster, but this beer was interesting to me in that it was "different" than other porters that I have had. It was light, not overly sweet, and not overly bitter. To me, it was just a nice beer to have in regards to its historical value. (364 characters)

Another on-tap only "pub exclusive" rotating release from Great Lakes. Drawn from the tap into a pint glass. According to my friend Passow (imaguitargod) this beer is a "burnt color", a very dark brown color with a few amber highlights when held up to light. The tan head is about 1/2-2/3 inch thick when drawn from the tap and settles to a nice thick tan ring lining the inside of the glass. Good lacing. Smells of molasses, brown sugar, roasted malt and hints of chocolate and coffee are present. Flavors of roasted malt and barely with the aforementioned molasses, chocolate and coffee present and is rounded out with a slight hint of hops. Has a crisp, smooth, medium bodied mouthfeel with moderate to high carbonation. Very drinkable. Another excellent offering from Great lakes.

Appearance - brownish/blackish in color.

Smell - Coffee / Chocolate overtones.

Taste - Espresso / Mollasses flavors.

Mouthfeel - very smooth. not much carbonation.

Drinkability - I had a few more than I originally expected. (342 characters)

I had this at the Great Lakes Brew Pub.

Served in a pint glass.

The table menu informed me that this was a Molasses Porter made from the recipe that George Washington used.

Dark brown in color. Sorted a medium head that hung around for quite some time till it laced nicely around the edges of the glass.

Coffee and chocolate notes were present in the nose. A hint of molasses was lingering in the background.

Expresso is the strong note in the tasting with a hint of molasses. The molasses was not as present in this porter as it is in Anchor's version.

It had a medium body to it and was smooth going down.

Notes: Not a bad porter. I would order this again without hesitation. I don't think it comes close to the Edmund Fitzgerald but it still is a solid addition to the Great Lakes line of beers. (820 characters)
