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 dark with no head. Aroma is chocolate and roasted malts. Flavor matches that. Very nice, thick and full-bodied. Not my favorite Big Eddy, but a solid beer.

Another nice Leinenkugel Beer. They should make more of these....Great bubblegum aromas and flavours. Palate is a bit thin...but it’s a nice boozy and sweet beer.

Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pint glass and a snifter. There weren’t any significant differences in either glass. The appearance was a nice black color with a decent half fingered white to off white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. There was some light trickling lacing sliding right on into the body. The smell had some caramel, toffee, cocoa, toasted bread and a cherry-like fruit to it. The taste took those previously mentioned flavors and added a decent dark roasty quality to it. On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a decent sessionable quality about it. The carbonation was fairly subdued but still good. Overall, I say this was a well worthy Baltic Porter to come back to.

Looks and smells promising but an odd flavor note keeps this from being a repeater. Never could place what it was but probably the same thing the previous reviewer called metallic.

Not a good malty aroma like I was expecting. No head. No carbonation. Flat gross beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Toffee, chocolate, and fruit. Leinenkugel’s, after nearly 150 years, is finally starting to get creative with their brews. It’s good, but the fruity aftertaste is slightly unappealing.

[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.

Dark mohogany pour with a brown head. Aroma is roasted malt, licorice. Taste is sweet, roasted malt., dark fruit, chalky. The flavor sticks with you.
