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.

zizzybalubba (1395) - Elizabeth City, North Carolina, USA - DEC 12, 2012
On tap at Tyler’s Taproom in Raleigh, NC. Dark brown pour with an off-white head. Aroma of roasted malts and light coffee. Tastes of chocolate with a nutty finish. Thin with low heat for the style. Not terrible but disappointing and not worthy of the Big Eddy name.

Bif (1392) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 15, 2013
2013 Artisans craft Beer Festival. Poured a deep brown color with a decent head that fades fairly quickly. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, dark fruit and nutty. Taste is similar with roasted malt, some caramel sweetness, chocolate, dark fruit and nutty. Nice bitterness and a dry finish. Fairly full body smooth with a creamy texture. the 8.5% ABV is well hidden. Enjoyable beer, nice take on the style.

Beerenberger (1384) - Fischer, Texas, USA - JAN 5, 2013
Aroma of roasted malt, caramel, and molasses. A dark bown pour with rubby highlights, no head or lacing. The taste is very malt forward. Roasted malts, a touch of bitter coffee, and a molasses finish. A grainy aftertaste remains. Medium to med-light body with medium carbonation. Overall, a nice robust roasty flavor up frontwhich disappointingly gives way to sweet molasses finish. I also wish it had a little more body.

csaso (1316) - Missouri, USA - APR 25, 2014
Bottle - big thick tan colored head, dark brown color, super malty aroma and flavor, roasty, creamy, mild fruity notes - pretty good for the style I guess

Mittenator (1252) - Michigan, USA - FEB 27, 2013
Bottle. Dark copper with tan head. Strawberry, raspberry and caramel aromas. Berry fruits with a slightly sour finish.

polomagnifico (1202) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - NOV 4, 2012
Bottle. Aroma has big notes of caramel, toffee, cocoa, dark bread malts and porto. Great nose!!! Very dark brown that sits black in the glass. Large frothy off-white head that mostly diminished and left good lace. Flavor is very sweet and medium bitter. Palate is full bodied and watery soft. Overall an amazing beer I can’t get enough of. I have know idea why the rating for this are so low. It drank good to me.

ronaldtheriot (1201) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - OCT 11, 2013
Leinenkugel’s Big Eddy Baltic Porter has a fairly thin, cream-colored head, a murky, red-brown appearance, some visible bubble streams, and thin lacing left behind. The aroma is of licorice candy, dark bread crust, sweetness, and candy sugar. Taste is of black licorice, black bread, sweet, melted hard candy, and a balancing hop bitterness at the end of the sip. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Leinenkugel’s Big Eddy Baltic Porter finishes wet, rich, flavorful, and delicious. I did not detect alcohol with this. Overall, this is most excellent. RJT

AWISLguy (1196) - Wisconsin, USA - OCT 26, 2012
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.

beerbaaron (1160) - Arizona, USA - AUG 7, 2013
Dark brown with small wispy tan head and solid ring around glass. Aroma is fairly sweet, caramel, toffee, chocolate, brown sugar, dark fruit/raisiny. Flavor much the same but without as much substance. Medium body, soft, turns a little thin. Mild roastyness, some alcohol, fairly sweet with medium duration. Some sips I like better than others.

12oz bottle from Discount Liquor. Pours a dark brown color with an off white head. Aroma is chocolate, roasty, coffee. Medium on the palate with soft carbonation. Flavor is sweet, Malty, cereal, coffee, roasty, some dark fruit, with a light, malty finish. Not bad, but nothing special.
