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.

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 (1622) - 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 (2999) - 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!

djd07 (5177) - Houston, Texas, USA - FEB 14, 2013
Bottle. Pours a dark amber with a medium beige head leaving spotty lacing along the glass. The aroma is a bready malt and raisin. Thin mouthfeel with a sweet malt and chocolate with light dry finish. Easy to drink a good Baltic porter from Lienenkugels.

OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - JUN 20, 2013
12oz served in a Southern Tier tulip. A - Yellowish tan head on top of a dark garnet brown body. S - Prunes, toasted cereal, molasses, caramel, leather, very faint charred malts, very sweet aroma, cherry fruit, some sweet rose aroma. When it warms molasses dominates everything. T - Tangy molasses, sticky raisins and caramel, roasted malts, hints of bakerís chocolate, has some bitterness as well as a slight sour note. Some leather around the edges. Finishes with a a roasty bitterness. M - Medium body, low to medium carbonation, thin but sticky at times. This is actually pretty good. If this was in a blind taste test I think this would get better reviews. Very robust flavors with a balanced bitter roast. Itís a tad sweet but itís a big beer with tons of sticky flavor. Serving type: bottle 10-19-2012

beerbaaron (1552) - 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.

jrodooo5 (1154) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - SEP 27, 2013
Good pour w/ a very nice aroma but the flavor doesnít quite match up. It had a cool dark pour w/ reddish hues & a big tan head that slowly fades. The aroma is an enticing blend of toffee & caramel. The flavor is smooth but just not as complex as I hoped. Still a very solid beer overall tho!

This is an okay baltic porter. Its very rich, but a bit unbalanced in its roastiness. Tastes almost burnt.
