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.

jandd1983 (2533) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - FEB 3, 2013
It poured a dark mohogany/red color with a light tan head. The aroma was of roasted malt and some licorice. The taste was sweet, roasted malt, with some dark fruit and slightly chalky. Average.

dmschefke (566) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - JAN 29, 2013
Pours a cola colored brown with thin tan head, minimal lacing. Aroma is dominated by tawny port notes and less so by underlying chocolate and caramel. Flavor matches well, but just doesn’t sit well with me.

Not a good malty aroma like I was expecting. No head. No carbonation. Flat gross beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

60minuteman (717) - Frazer, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 20, 2013
Dark pour, beige head. Thick. Rich and roasted chocolate, coffee, toffee flavor with notes of caramel and oak. Robust. Nice. A little thin. Tastes much less than 8.5%. I am pleasantly surprised by that.

Ratman197 (9664) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JAN 7, 2013
Bottle poured a clear dark reddish brown with a small lingering tan head. Aromas of roastiness, dried fruit, licorice and light cocoa. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of licorice, cocoa, dried fruit and light roastiness with a smooth lingering dried fruit finish.

Beerenberger (1414) - Fischer, Texas, USA - JAN 5, 2013
Aroma of roasted malt, caramel, and molasses. A dark bown pour with rubby highlights, no head or lacing. The taste is very malt forward. Roasted malts, a touch of bitter coffee, and a molasses finish. A grainy aftertaste remains. Medium to med-light body with medium carbonation. Overall, a nice robust roasty flavor up frontwhich disappointingly gives way to sweet molasses finish. I also wish it had a little more body.
