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.

BBB63 (6567) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - MAY 8, 2013
12 oz bottle and served in snifter: Pours a deep brown with reddish highlights topped by a fading tan head and spartan lace. The aroma has notes of caramel, roast, nuts, prune, figs, tobacco and other earthy yeast esters. The taste is dark fruits and earthy malts, not sweet but still very malty and earthy. The mouthfeel is smooth and oily, would have like a tad more sticky notes here. Solid brew but not quite up to the standards of the best Baltic’s on the market.

5000 (6900) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 18, 2013
Bottle:   Deepest of browns, moderate foamy beige head, spotty lacing.   Sweet roasted malt nose, slight soy, a bit of dark pitted fruit, prunes and raisins.   Slight lactose and chocolate notes as well.   Right up front its a bit of a slight sour/tart dark pitted fruit.   Moderate sweetness, fig, dates, and prunes.   Towards the end it has a fairly moderate roastiness and apple skin, almost like many imperial stouts.   I am surprised to see this one rated so low.   While not world class, its pretty solid.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   Lingering soy infused dark pitted fruits.   Perhaps not as big or rich as others, but thats okay.   Its fairly warm in Seattle now, so this is an easy Baltic Porter on a hot day.   This one is fairly good.

Clear mahogany with a tin brown head. Aroma of dark fruits, molasses, licorice, plum, toasted malts and alcohol. Taste of dark fruits, plum, dates, figs and alcohol. Sweet and sticky and I kept expecting it to get better as it warmed but no such luck. These Big Eddy beers all seem so similar to one another. Thankfully I got them as singles…

Draft to taster. Looks solid; a fairly transparent amberish brown with foamy beige head. Smells of dark malt and mild stone fruit. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. A solid example of the style.

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.
