Landhoney -- do a search on this site for Edmund Fitzgerald -- I think you're caught halfway between understanding and being baked...

I really like this beer- but it's not my favorite Great Lakes beer. My favorite is Burning River but the Edmund Fitzgerald is my second fave.

Notice how I just answer the question without acknowledging any other meaning.

it's a freight vessel that sank on the great lakes... not much sexual about it ;O)

it's a good enough porter. great lakes makes quality beers, they charge a bit too much for them imho, but they are good none the less.

my wife has been dry since 2000, but she would prolly like the porter.

Edmund Fitzgerald and a dry wife doesn't sound like a combination that would work (maybe a Burning River...)

Oh yeah, my SWMBO tried it a few times but finally gave up porter after a bad hangover...

God this thread is great!

SWMBO isn't a fan of porters, but puts up with them on RARE occasion.

Funny, this was one I had her try.

And yes, she hated it.

However, one of my fave styles.

SWMBO always wants an Edmund Fitzgerald after a few Jagerbombs. This happens anywhere from 3-8 times a year.
