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.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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 does’t work well with the brew. I liked the others in the Big Eddy series. This was a disappointment for me

2.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 13/20
Stop the presses because this thing sucks mass! No way to get around it or other forms of harsh objurgation for this titanic f’up of a baltic porter. What da’ shit is this thing? Soy sauce and cola? It’s nothing; it evaporates on the tongue. Leinenkugel, you don’t know how to make finer stuff, so just keep making the mediocre stuff for the masses.
