Bottle. Pours dark with no head. Aroma is chocolate and roasted malts. Flavor matches that. Very nice, thick and full-bodied. Not my favorite Big Eddy, but a solid beer.

Another nice Leinenkugel Beer. They should make more of these....Great bubblegum aromas and flavours. Palate is a bit thin...but itís a nice boozy and sweet beer.

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.

Toffee, chocolate, and fruit. Leinenkugelís, after nearly 150 years, is finally starting to get creative with their brews. Itís good, but the fruity aftertaste is slightly unappealing.

On tap at Tylerís Taproom in Raleigh, NC. Dark brown pour with an off-white head. Aroma of roasted malts and light coffee. Tastes of chocolate with a nutty finish. Thin with low heat for the style. Not terrible but disappointing and not worthy of the Big Eddy name.

2013 Artisans craft Beer Festival. Poured a deep brown color with a decent head that fades fairly quickly. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, dark fruit and nutty. Taste is similar with roasted malt, some caramel sweetness, chocolate, dark fruit and nutty. Nice bitterness and a dry finish. Fairly full body smooth with a creamy texture. the 8.5% ABV is well hidden. Enjoyable beer, nice take on the style.

3.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

Not a good malty aroma like I was expecting. No head. No carbonation. Flat gross beer.
