Leinie's Introduces Big Eddy Baltic Porter

The Jacob Leinenkugel Brewing Company is rolling out Big Eddy Baltic Porter, a hearty dark beer with a clean lager finish, perfect for any beer enthusiast. Big Eddy Baltic Porter is the third in a series of Big Eddy brews by Leinenkugel's in 2012.

Big Eddy Baltic Porter creates a warming blanket of malt flavor with seven select malts, including Munich, Crystal Rye, Roasted Barley, Special B, Chocolate malt and a blend of Pale malts. The beer is interwoven with notes of toffee, cocoa, caramel, toasted bread and sherry fruit flavors, creating a brew bold in character, yet remarkably balanced with an ABV of 8.5 percent.

Influenced by the melting pot of cultures and techniques from the Baltic region in the late-1700s, this Baltic Porter takes notes from the porters, stouts and Russian Imperial Stouts being shipped through the Baltic region from the United Kingdom and applies lager brewing techniques learned from Bavarian brewers.

"This brew is crafted in small batches to maintain the premium characteristics of a Baltic Porter," said Jake Leinenkugel, fifth-generation brewer and president of the Jacob Leinenkugel Brewing Company. "Baltic Porter is a perfect choice for the cooler weather ahead, and it pairs extremely well with grilled red meats, aromatic North African cuisine, rich stews, toffee and cocoa deserts."

Leinenkugel's Big Eddy Baltic Porter features red and copper hues that shine through the dark shade of this opulent beer.

As this Big Eddy warms it will open up to its full complexity and reveal its dark stone fruit notes of cherries, plums and raisins on top of licorice root, which adds a subtle sweetness to the aroma and adds a touch of spicy complexity within the layer of cocoa, molasses, toffee, plum and pumpernickel from the malts.

Inspired by the Big Eddy Spring, the lifeline of the Leinenkugel's brewery in Chippewa Falls, Wis. since 1867, the Big Eddy series offers big beer fans complex, yet balanced flavors.

Like its predecessors - Russian Imperial Stout, Wee Heavy Scotch Ale and the Imperial IPA - Big Eddy Baltic Porter ages and travels well.

Big Eddy Imperial Baltic Porter will be available in limited release beginning in September 2012 in Wisconsin, Minnesota, Illinois, Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, Kentucky, Iowa, North Dakota, South Dakota, Georgia, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Washington D.C., Virginia, Kansas, Indiana, Kentucky, Texas and Arizona.

The beer will be available in four-pack bottles and on draft.
