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.

Chudwick (2416) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - NOV 24, 2012
12oz bottle - pours dark amber with little beige head and no lacing. Nose is roasted malts, dark fruit, alcohol and caramel. Flavor adds brown sugar. Very malty but not very roasty. Sweet with light bitterness on the back end. Medium to full body. Sticky mouthfeel. Too sweet. Definitely a sipper.

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.

Blairgus (3178) - California, USA - NOV 14, 2012
14 nov 2012, tap. Black. Nose is cocoa, alcohol, burnt toast. Med body and moderately fizzy. Becomes a huge beer once you taste it! Lots of alcohol, bitter dark chocolate, faint raisins, toasted grain, bitter finish. Pretty good.

habadin (15) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - NOV 10, 2012
Out of bottle. Pours dark, little head. Smell: notes of apricot and fig. Interesting fruit smell. However, very little body. Slippery on tongue, and a lingering fruity aftertaste.

maxwelldeux (4160) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - NOV 10, 2012
Bottle. Pours very thick and dark with almost no head. Huge toffee smell to the nose. Taste is more fruity than anything else, which is interesting. A little heavy, but not bad.

Sweet malt scents and taste with a bit of malt. Taste is way too sweet, it masks the other flavors. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mora2000 (5930) - McKinney, Texas, USA - NOV 8, 2012
The beer pours a dark brown color with a white head. The aroma is full of alcohol and some dark fruit notes. I also get a little bit of brown sugar. The flavor is similar. I get a lot of raisin and prune notes, as well as some molasses and roasted malt. I also get the slightest hint of smoke. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
