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.

On tap at Tapwerks. Pours dark brown with a tan head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has sweet dark grains with sweet chocolate and a hint of roasted malts. Flavor starts with sweet dark grains and chocolate and is joined by roasted malts in the finish.

Ericular (596) - Minnesota, USA - JUN 27, 2014
Pours a dark reddish brown with brown head fading to a ring leaving some oily spotty lacing. Aroma is molasses, toffee, nutty. Taste is sweet and almost rich at first, but things fall apart as a fruity tartness comes in the middle, ending with a licorice soy sauce astringency. Has potential, but never achieves greatness.

cbfobes (2287) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 7, 2012
Poured from 12oz bottle, pours brown with a red hue in the light with a thin tan head, looks pretty thin, kind of like a coke or something, I was hoping it would be a little thicker, aroma is of slight chocolate and malt, not a ton really jumps out. The flavor has some roasted malt on the front end but is a little sweeter than I was expecting, some chocolate in the finish but seems a little weak. Not terrible, just not up to the Big Eddy standards I was hoping for.

XmnwildX12 (2078) - Farmington, Minnesota, USA - NOV 9, 2012
Sweet malt scents and taste with a bit of malt. Taste is way too sweet, it masks the other flavors. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz bottle - pours dark amber with little beige head and no lacing. Nose is roasted malts, dark fruit, alcohol and caramel. Flavor adds brown sugar. Very malty but not very roasty. Sweet with light bitterness on the back end. Medium to full body. Sticky mouthfeel. Too sweet. Definitely a sipper.

Dark brown color, close to black. Aroma of dark caramel and animal, light phenol. Dark caramel flavor, some oxidization, cabbage, light malt sourness; correct bitterness; roasted nuts in the end.
Odd, indeed.
