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.

From AC Beer Fest 2013. The aroma is fruit, bread, brown sugar. The appearance is deep brown, light tan head. The flavor is sweet, fruit, caramel, bread. The finish is light pine hops. Medium/thick in body. Very nice. I donít know why this has so many mediocre ratings.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a muddy brown color with a small white head. A sweet nose of caramel and figs. A rich flavor of tobacco, figs, burnt caramel, strawberries. Pretty nice. A bit of smoke. Interesting.

Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pint glass and a snifter. There werenít 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.

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.

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.

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.

12oz bottle. Rating #95. Pretty damn good beer, nice meld of flavors. It wasnít quite as thick as I would of personally liked, but a quality effort. (2617)
