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.

maxwelldeux (3500) - Everett, Washington, USA - NOV 10, 2012
Bottle. Pours very thick and dark with almost no head. Huge toffee smell to the nose. Taste is more fruity than anything else, which is interesting. A little heavy, but not bad.

Patrickctenchi (3468) - Coxís Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - FEB 14, 2013
Pours deep, dark, reddish-brown with a short and shiny, dark tan head. Syrupy, prune aroma. Taste is heavy, woody malt...dull chocolate...slightly roasty. Smooth, dark bittering. Not amazing, but pretty decent.

djd07 (3372) - Houston, Texas, USA - FEB 14, 2013
Bottle. Pours a dark amber with a medium beige head leaving spotty lacing along the glass. The aroma is a bready malt and raisin. Thin mouthfeel with a sweet malt and chocolate with light dry finish. Easy to drink a good Baltic porter from Lienenkugels.

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 doesnít have a strong Baltic quality to it. Sweet barley brownie. The palate is sweet and lingering. Not bad, but not interesting.

Hophead22 (2880) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - MAR 30, 2013
12oz bottle. Rating #95. Pretty damn good beer, nice meld of flavors. It wasnít quite as thick as I would of personally liked, but a quality effort. (2617)

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - NOV 14, 2012
Bottle. Pours dark brown/black with tan head. Aroma is somewhat fruity and alcoholic, some dark roast. Flavor is bold, malty, spicy, some frioty esters, dark roasted grain with a sharp dark roasted bitter. Heavy mouthfeel with high carbonation. Overall, a bit confused.

queenholly (2861) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - FEB 13, 2013
Bottle. Molasses, prune, chocolate, and slight anise aroma. Deep chestnut with a large tan head. Anise and molasses flavor. Reminds me a bit of the Risa Opal candies I ate as a kid in Iceland.... except without the menthol. I liked the candy, but I donít think I like the flavor as a beer all that much. Medium body, soft carbonation.

JStax (2857) - 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.

This is an okay baltic porter. Its very rich, but a bit unbalanced in its roastiness. Tastes almost burnt.
