Beer Of The Month – October

edmundfitzgerld

October is here and weather is getting colder, any day we could wake up and see snow coming down. With that cold weather there is nothing like warming up with a great porter. Now when most people think of October the first thing that comes to mind is usually pumpkin beers, not porters. Those pumpkin beers are great in small amounts but after awhile many of them can just become too sweet. But a great porter is much more…

So for the October beer of the month we are choosing Great Lakes Edmund Fitzgerald Porter. It’s an outstanding porter from a great midwest brewery. The Edmund Fitzgerald Porter pours out an opaque brownish black with about a two finger tan head. Chocolate and sugar begin to fill the air around the glass. As you get your nose closer to the glass, the coffee and roasted malts begin to cut through the sweetness. A very strong and rich aroma that is likely to suck anyone in. If you loved that aroma the taste is going to be right up your alley. You get coffee and chocolate right at the start. The sweetness doesn’t over power the taste at all, the roasted malts keep it balanced very well. Finishing bitter and dry, making you want to reach for another sip. At just 5.8% ABV, this beer packs a ton of flavor into it. It’s a great tasting beer that’s easy to drink and perfect for the season.
