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.

Bottle. Pours black. Nose/taste of molasses, sweet chocolate, sherry, toasted bread, cherry and black malt. Very little roast, mostly sweet with a lighter than medium body. Short sherry finish.

DocLock (8054) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 3, 2012
Bottle from Capone’s. Pours deep brown, and a lovely shade of deep ruby through direct light, with half a finger of fast-disspiating khaki head. Nose is charred black patent malt, cacao, blackstrap molasses. Tastes rich, dry, very charred, with the dark malt, soy saucy cloying flavor, dry hops late, and a medium palate heft. This one is a miss.

Caramally, ligh smoke. An interesting take on the style, non-traditional. But it is decent.

Ughsmash (7180) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 7, 2012
Bottled. Poured light-medium brown with a short-lived beige head. The aroma picked up near-burnt black malt and vanilla, with not a whole lot else going on. The flavor was very much on the sweet side, with near-burnt black malts and lesser chocolate.. sour roast and dry, earthy hops around.. finished with warm roast and a bit more malty sourness. Medium-bodied and too sweet for my liking on the palate.. just an OK feel.. thin for the style.. I didn’t like it very much, but will drink another.

deyholla (6951) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 21, 2013
On tap at Tapwerks. Pours dark brown with a tan head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has sweet dark grains with sweet chocolate and a hint of roasted malts. Flavor starts with sweet dark grains and chocolate and is joined by roasted malts in the finish.

BVery (6938) - 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.

DrSilverworm (6932) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 28, 2012
12oz bottle, 2012 edition. This was nice at first, but got really hard to drink as I carried on. Clear dark reddish color. Minimal off-white head. Plum, raisin nose. Dark fruit, light spice, light chocolate aroma. Medium / bigger body. Light carbonation. Kind of creamy. Pretty sweet-tasting. An alcohol taste reveals itself as this warms up, that does’t work well with the brew. I liked the others in the Big Eddy series. This was a disappointment for me

phaleslu (6790) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 28, 2012
12 oz. bottle. 2012 vintage. Pours a deep fig brown with a small tan head. Aroma of metal, dark fruits, chocolate, and toasted nuts. Flavor of dates, chocolate, dry toast, and earth. Medium-bodied, with medium carbonation and a dry, earthy mouthfeel. Decent but I normally like this style better.

arminjewell (6414) - Lansing, Michigan, USA - DEC 26, 2012
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, dark black pour with thin tan head, aroma brought notes of dark chocolate, caramel, toffee, hints of roast, touch of earth, hints of dark fruit and red wine, some slight roast. Taste is a mix of sweet dark fruits, some roast, touch of cocoa powder, hints of a wine like note, some sweet caramel, toffee, finishing sweet. It isn’t terrible, but it is pretty sweet.

Bottle. Pours deep brown with a beige head. Light roasted malts, some toffee and chocolate sweetness, toasted grains, and lighter earthy notes. Decent.
