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 (4182) - Snohomish, 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.

Cybercat (4169) - Georgia, USA - SEP 7, 2015
Pours opaque sable that lets a bit of ruby light peek through at the very bottom. Tan head is fairly thick but makes an early exit. Strong aroma has rich molasses and roast malt notes plus hints of chocolate and dark fruit. Flavor bursts with molasses, charred malt and roast quality coffee; cocoa, dark fruit and a little caramel provide the background tones. Texture has firm, smooth body, though fizz is lacking. Recommended if you can find it.

TURDFERGUSON (4024) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - SEP 13, 2012
Bottle. Dark amber going in that looks like a much darker brown when poured into the glass in my poorly lit living room. No head, carbonation is low. Nose of black malt, lightly roasted, water, light moonpie, coffee but u have to search a bunch. Flavor is a messy collab of molasses, black patent malt, metal, finishing roasty, bloody, and slightly rubbery. Very dry and strange.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - DEC 25, 2012
12oz bottle from Samís, Durham. Distressing clear and thin pour, looks for all the world like a brown ale from BMC. Very little carbonation, mostly translucent rusty water. Nose is malt and toffee, with just a smidge of fruit undertones and not much promise of a robust porter, Baltic or otherwise. Sure enough, itís thin-bodied as fuck and one-dimensional in its flavors: caramel candy, no base beer to speak of, and none of that gloriously healthy lactic body and finish I enjoy in the style. Good thing the Duck Rabbit just hit shelves this week.

JStax (3975) - 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.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 1, 2013
Clear mahogany with a tin brown head. Aroma of dark fruits, molasses, licorice, plum, toasted malts and alcohol. Taste of dark fruits, plum, dates, figs and alcohol. Sweet and sticky and I kept expecting it to get better as it warmed but no such luck. These Big Eddy beers all seem so similar to one another. Thankfully I got them as singlesÖ

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

superspak (3609) - Michigan, USA - JUL 29, 2013
12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, best before 9/5/2013. Pours crystal clear very dark reddish brown color with a 1-2 finger dense khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of caramel, toast, toffee, chocolate, brown bread, molasses, raisin, prune, nuttiness, light roast, and toasted earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance of dark malt notes with moderate fruitiness; and good strength. Taste of caramel, molasses, toast, toffee, chocolate, brown bread, raisin, prune, light roast, nuttiness, and toasted earthiness. No bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, molasses, toast, toffee, chocolate, brown bread, dark fruit, nuttiness, light roast, and toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and complexity of dark/toasted malt flavors with moderate fruitiness; and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Light-medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a creamy and slick mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with only a small warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very nice Baltic porter. All around nice balance and complexity of dark/toasted malt flavors with moderate fruitiness; and very smooth to sip on. A very enjoyable offering.

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.
