The Big Eddy Russian Imperial Stout was brewed at Leinenkugelís tiny 10th street brewery in Milwaukee. This brew boasts a selection of 11 malts and grains balanced by three different and distinct hops. Dark and complex, with chocolate tones and notes of dark fruits, it is daring yet delicious. Travels well. Ages well.

An alright imperial stout, actually pretty impressive for leinenkugel. Has a little too much sweetness to it.

2oz sample at International Great Beer Expo (Meadowlands). Pours black with almost no head. Aroma of roasted coffee, dark chocolate, caramel malt, and booze. Taste is much the same. Sweet caramel, toffee, dark chocolate, roasted coffee, and some warming alcohol.

Thankfully, I got this in a mixed 6 pack as a "sure get that one too" and didn't look at the label closely until after tasting it. I didn't realize it was a Leinenkugel until I took a second look. What a great surprise, how it was really good. I would have lowered my expectations and talked myself into a lesser experience. I will buy this again! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From 12oz bottle to glass. Pours a viscous, rich licorice color with a creamy tan head. Fine-bubbled lacing. Aroma is sweet roasted malts and earthiness. Notes of coffee and licorice. Initial taste is firewood and burnt and smoked grains and a rich malty licorice sweetness. Complex flavors abound more subtly - coffee again, and some dark chocolate. A sense of oatmeal as well. Quite a bit of bitterness on the backend and it merges with a burnt licorice flavor in the aftertaste before leaving a residue of booze. This is a distinctive and crafty Russian Imp. Very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap. Syrupy-thick goodness. Espresso and brown sugar notes. A bit bitter on the finish which I find superb. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a creamy black with minimal head. To me this tastes like an imperial stout mixed with an IPA, about 70/30.Although light, it has a definite hoppy bitterness to it. Quite good.
