Great Lakes Brewing Company Edmund Fitzgerald Porter
What the brewers say
"Robust and complex, our Porter is a bittersweet tribute to the legendary freighter’s fallen crew—taken too soon when the gales of November came early."
What our panel thought
“Light brown pour with a frothy tan head. Well-balanced aroma of piney hops, roasted malt, and caramel with a touch of chocolate. Medium body with layers of dark fruit, chocolate, light vanilla, and a pleasant hop bitterness that cuts through the residual sweetness on the finish.”
What our editors thought
“Simple nose of toasted bread with a light tannic note. The sip nods to pleasure with a touch of residual sweetness that bends the toasty note in a chocolate direction, but it’s disciplined and direct.”
