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. Poured dark clear brown color with an average frothy brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate toasted malt and toffee aroma. Medium body with a dry smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium dark sweet flavor with medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Solid complex beer.

Dark pour, beige head. Thick. Rich and roasted chocolate, coffee, toffee flavor with notes of caramel and oak. Robust. Nice. A little thin. Tastes much less than 8.5%. I am pleasantly surprised by that.

UPDATED: APR 12, 2013 Appearance is deep brown with a nice tan foam cap. Licorice and raisin are dominant on the aroma, with a bit of molasses and brown sugar. Taste starts with a sweet deep caramel malt, with hints of chocolate, molasses and brown sugar on the back end. Body is medium to light for some porters. Finishes with the slightest hint of chocolate, and some warmth from the alcohol.

jmagnus87 (2376) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - SEP 26, 2012
12oz bottle poured into s shaker. Pours a dark amber with a ruby hue and about a half finger of khaki head. Aroma is malt dominated. Chocolate, toffee and molases with some black liquorish and a hint of soy sauce. Taste is light bitter and light tart. The 8.5%abv is very noticeable at first but diminishes quickly through the finish. It starts with a mix of tart and dark fermented fruits, moves into molasses and toffee and ends with a long bakers chocolate aftertaste. Full bodied with a thick and creamy, yet slightly sticky texture. Lively carbonation and a very long finish. Overall, very good. Not the best in the big eddy series but very drinkable. Aging this for a few years or pairing it with cheese or chocolate may help to mellow it out some and take a bit of the edge off.

Bottle. Very dark brown pour with a tan head. Appearance and palate are fairly full-bodied. Chocolate and cocoa aroma. Taste is sweet and roasty. Quite good.

AWISLguy (1163) - 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.

alobar (2719) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 26, 2013
Pours a dark cola brown color with a tan head that vanishes quickly. Minimal aroma with hint of dark fruit. Dark fruit flavor with toffee, caramel, chocolate, and hint of roasted malt. Big beer!
