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.

1FastSTi (3334) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 8, 2014
Pours extremely deep brown with a thin tan head. Aroma of raisin and malt. Sweet smell. Medium body. Flavor doesn’t have a strong Baltic quality to it. Sweet barley brownie. The palate is sweet and lingering. Not bad, but not interesting.

Heavy licorice and raisin flavor. Unbalanced sweetness with a burnt aftertaste. Not the most enjoyable beers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Reddish brown pour with a thin white head. Boozy dark fruit aroma and taste with a nice touch of sourness.

UncleKorm (738) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - DEC 19, 2013
Bottle poured a deep dark brown hue w/ small frothy tan head and some lacing. Big sweet and licorice aromas. Initial flavor is bold sweet w/ a light bitter finish. Tastes are licorice, dark roast malt, red wine, port, toffee, and coffee. Full bodied, soft carbonation, and a dry tannin finish.

b3shine (5187) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 7, 2013
Draft to taster. Looks solid; a fairly transparent amberish brown with foamy beige head. Smells of dark malt and mild stone fruit. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. A solid example of the style.

Clear mahogany with a tin brown head. Aroma of dark fruits, molasses, licorice, plum, toasted malts and alcohol. Taste of dark fruits, plum, dates, figs and alcohol. Sweet and sticky and I kept expecting it to get better as it warmed but no such luck. These Big Eddy beers all seem so similar to one another. Thankfully I got them as singles…

S_Side_Smitty (431) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - OCT 23, 2013
Pours dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma is molasses, chocolate, malts, and alcohol. Taste is initially chocolate and heavy malts. Then comes mild alcohol followed by more malts and something raisin-like. The transitions are quick and end pretty quickly. There’s also some viscocity that makes itself known.

ronaldtheriot (1192) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - OCT 11, 2013
Leinenkugel’s Big Eddy Baltic Porter has a fairly thin, cream-colored head, a murky, red-brown appearance, some visible bubble streams, and thin lacing left behind. The aroma is of licorice candy, dark bread crust, sweetness, and candy sugar. Taste is of black licorice, black bread, sweet, melted hard candy, and a balancing hop bitterness at the end of the sip. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Leinenkugel’s Big Eddy Baltic Porter finishes wet, rich, flavorful, and delicious. I did not detect alcohol with this. Overall, this is most excellent. RJT

portableparty (1909) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - OCT 8, 2013
12 0z. bottle. Pours dark brown black with a tight thin creamy looking khaki head that settles to a wispy film and collar. Aroma has some dark pitted fruit and wet cork scents with some fig, raisin and mocha. Taste is more raisin licorice and figs with a strong bitterness and faint bakers chocolate and a little yuk. Palate is medium sticky and meh.
