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. 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 don’t think I like the flavor as a beer all that much. Medium body, soft carbonation.

madvike (3045) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 21, 2012
On tap at GTMW - Pours mahogany with a tan had. Nose is great--metallic and sweet, with milky malt. Taste is sweet dark malt, like a Black IPA without the hops. Milky and sweet finish. Thick and well-carbonated. I love the Big Eddy series, but this one missed the mark.

From AC Beer Fest 2013. The aroma is fruit, bread, brown sugar. The appearance is deep brown, light tan head. The flavor is sweet, fruit, caramel, bread. The finish is light pine hops. Medium/thick in body. Very nice. I don’t know why this has so many mediocre ratings.

alobar (2992) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 26, 2013
Pours a dark cola brown color with a tan head that vanishes quickly. Minimal aroma with hint of dark fruit. Dark fruit flavor with toffee, caramel, chocolate, and hint of roasted malt. Big beer!

Blairgus (2990) - California, USA - NOV 14, 2012
14 nov 2012, tap. Black. Nose is cocoa, alcohol, burnt toast. Med body and moderately fizzy. Becomes a huge beer once you taste it! Lots of alcohol, bitter dark chocolate, faint raisins, toasted grain, bitter finish. Pretty good.

jandd1983 (2986) - 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.

tectactoe (2952) - Michigan, USA - FEB 28, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 10, 2014 [Bottle / 2012 / ~1 year old] Deep, deep brown with a dark-beige, slightly creamy cap. Unexpected clarity, despite the deep hue of the brew. Aroma isn’t as robust as I’d expect for an 8.5% ABV Baltic porter. Boozy cocoa, mild toffee, heaps of molasses, light nuttiness, some date/raisin sweetness... Not bad, but could be amped up a bit. Taste has lots & lots of dark fruitiness up front, with a mildly vinous, almost wine-like flavor. Boozy grapes, raisins, plums, & dates, even hitting with a faint, port-like tartness leading into a very sweet cocoa & cola flavor... Light astringency with molasses, licorice, & a touch of soy sauce in the finish. Not bad, but something’s missing to make this go from "decent" to "good". It’s definitely a "top-tier" brew next to the rest of Leinie’s line-up, but there are many other similarly priced porters/stouts I’d chose over this.

Ron (2880) - Rochester, New York, USA - AUG 17, 2013
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. Thanks for the trade JB.

Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - MAR 30, 2013
12oz bottle. Rating #95. Pretty damn good beer, nice meld of flavors. It wasn’t 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.
