"We've teamed up with another porter brewmaster — Great Lakes Brewing Co. of the famed Edmund Fitzgerald Porter — to create a very special porter for the Class of '88.
This Imperial Smoked Porter is brewed with both roasted and smoked malt that delivers not only a subtle smoky flavor but a rich, chocolaty aroma. Enjoy every layer of porter craftsmanship from this limited-run collaboration.
Malt: Pale, Extra Special, Chocolate Wheat, Smoked Malt, Oak Smoked Wheat, Flaked Oats
Hops: Nugget, Tettnang, East Kent Goldings"
"The two breweries that arguably feature the two premier porters on our shelves (Edmund Fitzgeralg & Black Butte, respectively) decided to brew an imperial smoked porter to commemorate both of their 25th brewing anniversaries. That being said, how could this beer be anything short of spectacular? Don't expect it to taste like either of their porters though, this will probably be the smokiest thing you have ever tried outside of Schlenkerla Rauchbier." Reviewed by: Kyle Fornek
