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.

unclemattie (4035) - Georgia, USA - OCT 11, 2012
Vintage 2012, 12oz bottle. Very dark brown pour, thin ring tan head. Aroma of molasses, sweet toasted malt syrup, dark fruit puree, and chocolate malt. Tastes like a burnt Belgian Dubbel. Chocolate malt, dark fruit, wood tannin bitterness. A bite of a boozy finish in the roasted flavors left behind. (3486)

The beer pours a dark brown color with a white head. The aroma is full of alcohol and some dark fruit notes. I also get a little bit of brown sugar. The flavor is similar. I get a lot of raisin and prune notes, as well as some molasses and roasted malt. I also get the slightest hint of smoke. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

MaltOne (182) - Wisconsin, USA - DEC 21, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 22, 2012 On tap @ Silver Creek. Of the Big Eddyís Iíve tried (Imp. Russian Stout and Wee Heavy being the others) itís not my favorite. Pours opaque chocoate brown with a pretty cream/tan head. Aroma is a little hard to pin down... toasted hemp? Flavor follows with ... again the toasted hemp and general roastiness and a slight sour finish. Medium body. Overall, not a beer Iíd stock up on, but I commend the effort - I applaud a mass producerís effort into making a quality beer.

arminjewell (5718) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 26, 2012
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, dark black pour with thin tan head, aroma brought notes of dark chocolate, caramel, toffee, hints of roast, touch of earth, hints of dark fruit and red wine, some slight roast. Taste is a mix of sweet dark fruits, some roast, touch of cocoa powder, hints of a wine like note, some sweet caramel, toffee, finishing sweet. It isnít terrible, but it is pretty sweet.

Beerenberger (1271) - Fischer, Texas, USA - JAN 5, 2013
Aroma of roasted malt, caramel, and molasses. A dark bown pour with rubby highlights, no head or lacing. The taste is very malt forward. Roasted malts, a touch of bitter coffee, and a molasses finish. A grainy aftertaste remains. Medium to med-light body with medium carbonation. Overall, a nice robust roasty flavor up frontwhich disappointingly gives way to sweet molasses finish. I also wish it had a little more body.

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.

cbfobes (2153) - 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.
