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.

phaleslu (6607) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 28, 2012
12 oz. bottle. 2012 vintage. Pours a deep fig brown with a small tan head. Aroma of metal, dark fruits, chocolate, and toasted nuts. Flavor of dates, chocolate, dry toast, and earth. Medium-bodied, with medium carbonation and a dry, earthy mouthfeel. Decent but I normally like this style better.

solidfunk (4168) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - DEC 31, 2012
A little too sweet for me. Pours dark brown with fizzy head. Smells of stewed malt. Taste is sweet corn malt with slight nutty nitterness. Low carbonation. Bottle in paper bag waiting around in Penn Station.

Sammy (8725) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 6, 2013
A decent Baltic porter. Balanced, I would like a bit more bitterness edge but still a good drinkable porter. Dark coloured, fizzy disappearing head. Middling mouthfeel. Lots of chocolate. An extra in a trade, I think Beerenberger.

MarinEvelyn (560) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 7, 2013
very malty, sweet rich fruit aroma. A little cocoa as well. lighter taste than I expected, almost seems to have a wine aspect to it, though finishes more bitter and roasty. A little alcohol. Sweet and malty.

AR (1000) - Georgia, USA - AUG 14, 2013
Medium large, but short-lived brown head. The flavors, also, are good, but short-lived. They include a bread flavor, chocolate, and sugar cane.

1FastSTi (3338) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 8, 2014
Pours extremely deep brown with a thin tan head. Aroma of raisin and malt. Sweet smell. Medium body. Flavor doesn’t have a strong Baltic quality to it. Sweet barley brownie. The palate is sweet and lingering. Not bad, but not interesting.
