This is from Great Lakes Brewing Co., and takes it's name from the infamous sunken freighter. I'm hoping I sampled a bad batch because this tasted like it was dredged up from the bottom of Lake Erie! Way too bitter and hopped up, foul aftertaste! It was not "skunked", the aroma was what I expect from Porter. I can't even come up with a constructive criticism on this one!
