COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Big Eddy Russian Imperial Stout was brewed at Leinenkugel’s 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.

Pours a thick dark brown/blackish color with a thick, dark tan head. Aromas of roasted malts,dark fruits,alcohol and a hint of chocolate coming through. Wowo, upon first sip I got this tounge coating of wonderful complexity. Tastes of roasted malts,coffee and alcohol are the mainstay of the flavors,but blended inside are also dark fruits and nice hops. Smooth long lasting slow bitter finish. Nice and warming. Wionderful stuff!

Bottle (thanks brewblackhole). Pours a thick & syruppy jet black with a small light brown head. Hearty aroma of dark roasted malts, dark chocolate, some molasses and coffee. This stuff is thick. Roasted malts, dark chocolate, some fruity sweetness and coffee dominate the flavor. Big flavors. this is a hearty brew.

Bottle pours black brien head. Thick sticky good carb. Tastes smell soy sauce chocolate booze bitter. Very solid beer for price. I think it was 8.99-10 for a four pack. Good stuff price makes it even better.

From bottle. Pours black with a beige head. Big aroma of roasted malts. Taste is nicely sweet, not too much, with a good hoppiness in there for balance. Delicious and worth drinking again.

Pour is a thick black color. Nose is more coffee heavy than anything else. Taste is a bit more complex has some coffee, and bourbon ish notes. Rather thick, just nothing special.

I received this bottle courtesy of Skyview. This was a great beer. Pours very dark with a small tan head. Aroma of dark fruit and sugar/sweetness with chocolate. Taste similar to aroma with a bit of molasses in there as well. For 9.5% you really cannot taste the alcohol. Very nice beer.
