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.

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

12oz bottle from Discount Liquor. Pours a dark brown color with an off white head. Aroma is chocolate, roasty, coffee. Medium on the palate with soft carbonation. Flavor is sweet, Malty, cereal, coffee, roasty, some dark fruit, with a light, malty finish. Not bad, but nothing special.

polomagnifico (1202) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - NOV 4, 2012
Bottle. Aroma has big notes of caramel, toffee, cocoa, dark bread malts and porto. Great nose!!! Very dark brown that sits black in the glass. Large frothy off-white head that mostly diminished and left good lace. Flavor is very sweet and medium bitter. Palate is full bodied and watery soft. Overall an amazing beer I can’t get enough of. I have know idea why the rating for this are so low. It drank good to me.

jrodooo5 (1154) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - SEP 27, 2013
Good pour w/ a very nice aroma but the flavor doesn’t quite match up. It had a cool dark pour w/ reddish hues & a big tan head that slowly fades. The aroma is an enticing blend of toffee & caramel. The flavor is smooth but just not as complex as I hoped. Still a very solid beer overall tho!

DasBierChef (1083) - Hudson, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 18, 2012
Lots of chocolate in the nose and over all not too bad, but nothing special. A nice choice if you’re looking for a darker beer on a hotter day.

DrinkEmUpJones (1069) - Georgia, USA - NOV 2, 2012
Dark brown almost black color with very minimal lacing. There is a robust chocolate coffee nose. Palate is full bodied with a licorice overtone with a coffee bean backing. Smooth overall with a roasted coffee finish that last for a while. Good beer to warm you up on those cold nights...licorice is present.
