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 at a BOSS meeting thanks to Goetz! Pours brown with a creamy tan head. Aroma is toffee and malt. Flavor follows and is much more toffee and caramel than roast. Really nice beer. Not quite a Baltic Porter, but really nice nonetheless.

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.

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

MIBRomeo (2570) - Wisconsin, USA - SEP 1, 2012
Mahogony colored pour small tan head w/ very little lacing. Aroma is a bit metalic some black malt and a lot of lactose like sugar. Almost over carbonated palate after that itís pretty thin. Flavor is very light touches of iron and black malt and not much else. Very disappointing.

Roast, coffee, fruit. A bit on the sweet side, but decent. Very dark brown. Medium-full bodied and a touch oily. Decent, but Iím not all that impressed.

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

Bottle from Woodmans in the Falls. Pours reddish brown with a bit of a off-tan head. No real lacing, although when worked hard, there is some. Aroma has licorice, molasses and faint chocolate. A sweeter aroma than that would seem. Taste is of milk chocolate, licorice, some caramel malt and some presence of raisins. Finishes moderately quickly; sweet and slightly sour. Not a ton going on here. More that they could not decide what they wanted to do. Drinkable, and not bad, but just not really good either.

December 26, 2012 - bottle from Coffee Grounds. Dark brown pour with nice amount of head. Caramel, roasted malt, toffee and dark fruit in the aroma. Taste seemed to be mostly the caramel and dark fruit with a mild alcohol and nutty finish.

12 0z. bottle. Pours dark brown black with a tight thin creamy looking khaki head that settles to a wispy film and collar. Aroma has some dark pitted fruit and wet cork scents with some fig, raisin and mocha. Taste is more raisin licorice and figs with a strong bitterness and faint bakers chocolate and a little yuk. Palate is medium sticky and meh.

Black pour with a small, orange-tan head. Aroma is full of dark fruit, reduced fruit juices, dark sugar and pine tar, plenty of dark chocolate and dark caramel in there as well. Flavor is big on roast, molasses, dark fruit, port wine simmered tree fruit, chocolate and toffee nuts, thereís some caramel, earthy grain, licorice, cherry, fig jam and raisin in there as well. Finishes a little tart and lightly metallic, but with lots of dark fruit carrying on. Heavy to medium body, chewy to goopy feel on entry, dry, slightly acidic and metallic-dry, but goopy finish, medium, sharp carbonation. Good stuff overall, but the metallic notes and weird mouthfeel definitely hold it back. I really want to give it a higher score, but the mouthfeel kinda sucks.
