Edmund Fitzgerald – Great Lakes Brewing Company

Porters are a flavorful style of beer.  IPA's showcase the hop, while porters can showcase the malt side of brew.  Edmund Fitzgerald crafted by Great Lakes Brewing Company is a flavorful porter that delivers. Poured in the glass, this beer has an average head size, about an inch or so.  It has a light brown color, foamy in texture and dissipates slowly ending in a thin layer on the top of the beer.   Edmund Fitzgerald has coffee and chocolate aromas right upfront that are pleasant and inviting.  It asks you to take a sip.  So I did.  I am rewarded with coffee and bitter chocolate flavors.  There are also roasted malt and wisps of espresso.  The beer also has a nice amount of carbonation. Edmund Fitzgerald is a flavorful beer that I will definitely purchase again. ABV = 5.8%
