Top 10 beers in the world press

Great Lakes Edmund Fitzgerald Porter

edmungfitz_bottleglassPouring a dark black, Chris Morris, of the Star-Ledger, said this porter from Ohio’s Great Lakes Brewing Co. was “world-class” having picked up more than twenty medals in the world’s top beer competitions.

He said: “Edmund Fitzgerald pours a dark, dark black. Trace amounts of light peak through when held up, but not much. The thick off-white head holds well throughout the drink. Sweet sugar from the malts is noticeable on the nose alongside big notes of cocoa, roasted malts, and coffee. No alcohol (5.80% abv) is noticeable.

“Roasted malt flavors dominate the flavor up front, followed by a light nutty flavor, coffee, dark chocolate, and some sweeter malts. The full body and moderate yet healthy carbonation makes for a chewy mouthfeel and a creamy finish. Overall, Great Lakes’ Edmund Fitzgerald Porter is world-class, a perfect example of a modern American porter. I know I’ve said this about a lot of beers recently, but it really is the perfect beer to sip on next to the fire.”

Porter, 5.8%
