Not a good malty aroma like I was expecting. No head. No carbonation. Flat gross beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - FEB 28, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 10, 2014 [Bottle / 2012 / ~1 year old] Deep, deep brown with a dark-beige, slightly creamy cap. Unexpected clarity, despite the deep hue of the brew. Aroma isnt as robust as Id expect for an 8.5% ABV Baltic porter. Boozy cocoa, mild toffee, heaps of molasses, light nuttiness, some date/raisin sweetness... Not bad, but could be amped up a bit. Taste has lots & lots of dark fruitiness up front, with a mildly vinous, almost wine-like flavor. Boozy grapes, raisins, plums, & dates, even hitting with a faint, port-like tartness leading into a very sweet cocoa & cola flavor... Light astringency with molasses, licorice, & a touch of soy sauce in the finish. Not bad, but somethings missing to make this go from "decent" to "good". Its definitely a "top-tier" brew next to the rest of Leinies line-up, but there are many other similarly priced porters/stouts Id chose over this.

Appearance is clear and reddish brown. Nose is bread, brown sugar, and a bit of fruit. Similar to a doppel nose, good for me. Creamy mouthfeel, sugary sweet start, dips into a bit of sour, and chocolate malt, caramel, and chocolate tastes. Very interesting. Not true to style but very interesting brew.

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 dont know why this has so many mediocre ratings.

Looks and smells promising but an odd flavor note keeps this from being a repeater. Never could place what it was but probably the same thing the previous reviewer called metallic.

Chudwick (3003) - Taylor Mill, Kentucky, USA - NOV 24, 2012
12oz bottle - pours dark amber with little beige head and no lacing. Nose is roasted malts, dark fruit, alcohol and caramel. Flavor adds brown sugar. Very malty but not very roasty. Sweet with light bitterness on the back end. Medium to full body. Sticky mouthfeel. Too sweet. Definitely a sipper.

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.

cbfobes (2881) - Quad Cities, Illinois, 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.

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

Bottle. Pours dark brown/black with tan head. Aroma is somewhat fruity and alcoholic, some dark roast. Flavor is bold, malty, spicy, some frioty esters, dark roasted grain with a sharp dark roasted bitter. Heavy mouthfeel with high carbonation. Overall, a bit confused.
