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.

OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - JUN 20, 2013
12oz served in a Southern Tier tulip. A - Yellowish tan head on top of a dark garnet brown body. S - Prunes, toasted cereal, molasses, caramel, leather, very faint charred malts, very sweet aroma, cherry fruit, some sweet rose aroma. When it warms molasses dominates everything. T - Tangy molasses, sticky raisins and caramel, roasted malts, hints of bakerís chocolate, has some bitterness as well as a slight sour note. Some leather around the edges. Finishes with a a roasty bitterness. M - Medium body, low to medium carbonation, thin but sticky at times. This is actually pretty good. If this was in a blind taste test I think this would get better reviews. Very robust flavors with a balanced bitter roast. Itís a tad sweet but itís a big beer with tons of sticky flavor.

JStax (4538) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - JUN 14, 2013
12 ounce bottle into a brandy snifter thanks to weihenweizen. Pours a darker brown. No sign of head or carbonation. Aroma is roasty with notes of milk chocolate. Taste is super sweet, nearing acrid sugary sweetness. A little roastyness comes back into play in the finish, but its not enough to save this beer. Itís bad.

On tap at a bowling alley - first or second time trying this style. Burnt aspect to it.

Found this one on clearance for about a dollar a bottle, unfortunately that seems to be itís market value - more like a coffee doppelbock than a porter, loads of prune juice and raisin, clean and sugary, simple with a coffee overlay, thin yet almost sticky, weird, and not in a good way, other Big Eddyís have been much better

Bamaboy1975 (242) - Suffolk, Virginia, USA - MAY 22, 2013
This pours a dark brown color with a slight light brown head. The aroma gives it that scent like it’s been aged in a sherry barrel with a mild fruitiness of plums. The texture is smooth and creamy. There are lots of complex roasted and smoky flavors. Finishes ever so crisp. Not too bad but there’s also room for improvement. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BBB63 (6507) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - MAY 8, 2013
12 oz bottle and served in snifter: Pours a deep brown with reddish highlights topped by a fading tan head and spartan lace. The aroma has notes of caramel, roast, nuts, prune, figs, tobacco and other earthy yeast esters. The taste is dark fruits and earthy malts, not sweet but still very malty and earthy. The mouthfeel is smooth and oily, would have like a tad more sticky notes here. Solid brew but not quite up to the standards of the best Balticís on the market.

douglas88 (7963) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 6, 2013
12 ounce bottle. Pours a muddy brown color with a small white head. A sweet nose of caramel and figs. A rich flavor of tobacco, figs, burnt caramel, strawberries. Pretty nice. A bit of smoke. Interesting.

jb (2756) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAY 5, 2013
Appearance is clear and reddish brown. Nose is bread, brown sugar, and a bit of fruit. Similar to a doppel nose, good for me. Creamy mouthfeel, sugary sweet start, dips into a bit of sour, and chocolate malt, caramel, and chocolate tastes. Very interesting. Not true to style but very interesting brew.

From AC Beer Fest 2013. The aroma is fruit, bread, brown sugar. The appearance is deep brown, light tan head. The flavor is sweet, fruit, caramel, bread. The finish is light pine hops. Medium/thick in body. Very nice. I donít know why this has so many mediocre ratings.
