COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Big Eddy Baltic Porter is a blanket of malt flavor. Notes of toffee, cocoa, caramel, toasted bread and sherry fruit flavors are interwoven to produce a symphony of splendor. Our Baltic Porter is an homage to the brewers of the Baltics and a tribute to our own historic brewing waters, the Big Eddy Spring.

Roast, coffee, fruit. A bit on the sweet side, but decent. Very dark brown. Medium-full bodied and a touch oily. Decent, but Iím not all that impressed.

UPDATED: FEB 10, 2015 rerate 2/15....whoa guess this sat in the back for 2 years. not change to rating but this beer morphed into a dopplebock porter???? donít remember the dark fruit from fresh bottle but it is here in taste along with caramel. still a good sticky mouhfeel.......................................... like this label. Rated this much higher than most??? Nice aroma of cocoa and malt +? Nice dark pour. Med palate nice flavor similar to aroma with added complexity. Some alcohol dark fruit in there. Glad I got a 4 pack

zizzybalubba (1565) - Elizabeth City, North Carolina, USA - DEC 12, 2012
On tap at Tylerís Taproom in Raleigh, NC. Dark brown pour with an off-white head. Aroma of roasted malts and light coffee. Tastes of chocolate with a nutty finish. Thin with low heat for the style. Not terrible but disappointing and not worthy of the Big Eddy name.

travita (4307) - Frisco, Texas, USA - DEC 12, 2012
Bottle. The look is lot like Pepsi, light beige colored head, and clear. The smell is malty, toffee, fruits, raisans, fig, and ok. The taste is fruity, roast, malt, sweet, too sweet, and sugary.

DocLock (8331) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 3, 2012
Bottle from Caponeís. Pours deep brown, and a lovely shade of deep ruby through direct light, with half a finger of fast-disspiating khaki head. Nose is charred black patent malt, cacao, blackstrap molasses. Tastes rich, dry, very charred, with the dark malt, soy saucy cloying flavor, dry hops late, and a medium palate heft. This one is a miss.

PorterPounder (5959) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 29, 2012
Savannah, Ga - Habersham Beverage Warehouse - 12 oz bottle. Dark brown pour, thin, off white head that clings to the edge of the glass. Molasses and dates in the aroma, trace of bubble gum. Flavor is decidedly sweet with raisins and molasses dominating. Some milk chocolate makes an appearance with a finish of brown sugar. Mouthfeel is nice and thick. Good winter warmer.

DrSilverworm (7960) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 28, 2012
12oz bottle, 2012 edition. This was nice at first, but got really hard to drink as I carried on. Clear dark reddish color. Minimal off-white head. Plum, raisin nose. Dark fruit, light spice, light chocolate aroma. Medium / bigger body. Light carbonation. Kind of creamy. Pretty sweet-tasting. An alcohol taste reveals itself as this warms up, that doesít work well with the brew. I liked the others in the Big Eddy series. This was a disappointment for me

Bottle. Pours deep brown with a beige head. Light roasted malts, some toffee and chocolate sweetness, toasted grains, and lighter earthy notes. Decent.

dreadnord (1013) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 26, 2012
Clear and light brown out of the bottle but as it pools its black with a thick brown head. Nose is roasted coffee, almonds, chocolate, grass, cherries. Taste is sweet and slightly tart With the bitterness on the finish. Mouthfeel is crisp yet soft, fizzy, light to medium body with a long finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
