12 oz bottle. Pours a dark opaque black with a thin layer of tan head. Aroma of coffee and roasted malts. Taste is great, with a well balanced coffee and roasted malt combo with hints of chocolate.

Look: A nice crisp porter with almost no head and lacing. Poured into a pint glass.

Smell: Delicate scent with notes of coffee and chocolate but not overpowering in any way.

Taste: A tad bitter at first but the after taste is fantastic. Carbonation is great for a porter and enhanced the flavor for me.

Feel: Put me on a ship sailing through the seas. However, this ship wasn't sinking.

Has a moderate not too dark look to It. Lovely toast smell.
Malty/toasted flavor but an odd lingering sweetness n bready aftertaste.

Pours a dark brown, nice frothy head. Very smooth and I had it with a burger in Duluth. When in Duluth you gotta order the Edmund Fitzgerald, as it was sunk in Lake Superior, and Duluth is a port city. Nice maltiness and goes down smooth. Great beer with a steak or burger.
