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.

Malty, toffee, dried fruit aroma. Pours dark auburn with slowly fading tan head leaving light lacing. Very smooth caramel flavor with a woody slightly bitter finish.

This needs to age. First one tasted too sweet and under attenuated. Not very good, just too much going on with the dark fruit.

ChainGangGuy (4351) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - OCT 27, 2012
12 ounce bottle - $3.49 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Vintage 2012.

Appearance: Pours a clear, very dark brown body with a smallish, light mocha-toned head.

Smell: Dark malts with notes of cheap cherry cola, nuts, and other stuff. I say "other stuff" because it doesn’t matter as it all yields to displeasing notes of soy and less-than-clean loose change.

Taste: Dark maltiness replete with store-brand cola, roasted nuts. Slight touch of rum raisin. Also, some coffee and licorice. Some metallic hints within, too. Maybe even a modest whisper of soy sauce. Eventually the other flavors fade away leaving the soy and metallic accents until the finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium carbonation.

Overall: Well, let’s just say I preferred the other members of the Big Eddy crew. By margin wide enough to chuck some dirty nickles and a bottle of Kikkoman’s through.

AWISLguy (1163) - Wisconsin, USA - OCT 26, 2012
Bottle from Woodmans in the Falls. Pours reddish brown with a bit of a off-tan head. No real lacing, although when worked hard, there is some. Aroma has licorice, molasses and faint chocolate. A sweeter aroma than that would seem. Taste is of milk chocolate, licorice, some caramel malt and some presence of raisins. Finishes moderately quickly; sweet and slightly sour. Not a ton going on here. More that they could not decide what they wanted to do. Drinkable, and not bad, but just not really good either.

BVery (5944) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - OCT 14, 2012
Bottle. Very dark brown pour with a tan head. Appearance and palate are fairly full-bodied. Chocolate and cocoa aroma. Taste is sweet and roasty. Quite good.

dwyerpg (4486) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - OCT 12, 2012
This is pretty sweet but not a whole lot that’s good in the flavor or body. Mostly it’s sugary and chocolaty but just not all that good.

Trev (1869) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - OCT 12, 2012
bottle: Pour is dark brown with ruby highlights and a medium creamy tan head. aroma is dusty cocoa and caramel. some woody herbal/licorice notes. Dark fruit and toffe in the front for flavour. some nutty chocolate and roasted malt, bit thin towards the end though.

unclemattie (4119) - Georgia, USA - OCT 11, 2012
Vintage 2012, 12oz bottle. Very dark brown pour, thin ring tan head. Aroma of molasses, sweet toasted malt syrup, dark fruit puree, and chocolate malt. Tastes like a burnt Belgian Dubbel. Chocolate malt, dark fruit, wood tannin bitterness. A bite of a boozy finish in the roasted flavors left behind. (3486)
