Clear and light brown out of the bottle but as it pools its black with a thick brown head. Nose is roasted coffee, almonds, chocolate, grass, cherries. Taste is sweet and slightly tart With the bitterness on the finish. Mouthfeel is crisp yet soft, fizzy, light to medium body with a long finish.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Leinenkugelís 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 Leinenkugelís Big Eddy Baltic Porter finishes wet, rich, flavorful, and delicious. I did not detect alcohol with this. Overall, this is most excellent. RJT

Medium large, but short-lived brown head. The flavors, also, are good, but short-lived. They include a bread flavor, chocolate, and sugar cane.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
2012 bottle to snifter. First observation is that this is a lot lighter than I was expecting. Itís brown with a garnet hue. Short lived head fades to a thin collar around the glass. Lightly carbonated with slow moving bubbles ascending to the top of the brew. Sugar cane and light molasses aroma. Quite sweet and nice. Taste starts off sweet like the aroma but then balances out with a touch if bitter roast and finishes with a sugared black coffee flavor. Somewhat slippery in the mouth. Not as dark or as much licorice flavor as I was expecting but I like the coffee roast sweetness. Tasty.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

Kinda like this label. Rated this much higher than most??? Nice aroma of cocoa and malt +? Nice dark pour. Med palate nice flavor similar to aroma with added complexity. Some alcohol dark fruit in there. Glad I got a 4 pack

Stop the presses because this thing sucks mass! No way to get around it or other forms of harsh objurgation for this titanic fíup of a baltic porter. What daí shit is this thing? Soy sauce and cola? Itís nothing; it evaporates on the tongue. Leinenkugel, you donít know how to make finer stuff, so just keep making the mediocre stuff for the masses.
