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.

Bottle. Pours black with a generous dark tan head on top. Aroma is brown sugar, chocolate, caramel, toffee, and coffee. Flavor is bittersweet chocolate, cherries, roasted malt, and roasted coffee. On the palate the beer is medium bodied and creamy with light carbonation.

UPDATED: DEC 2, 2007 Yeah, its good. Its made by Leinenkugel. Easily the best thing they’ve done. A lot of sweet chocolate and caramel. Thick mouth but overall easier to drink than some big impys. Would love to get a bottle of my own since it was shared, and thanks for the share btw Scotty.

Taste of chocolate and perhaps some vanilla the high ABV is hidden very well. The hops are pronounced although this is truly a malty beverage. Very smooth and deserving of these high marks.

pours like 2 day old truck stop coffee, thick and syrupy, with a rootbeer float head. lots of coffee, sweet, mildly hoppy. smooth, with a slightly bitter aftertaste. alcohol flavor is present, but not overpowering.

UPDATED: APR 19, 2014 2012 bottle - coffee and pumpernickle notes added to the earlier descripton... still great. 2011 Bottle - Pours a thick, dark oily brown, absolutely opaque, with a dark khaki head. Head dissiaptes to a thin lacing. It is so thick that when swirled in the glass it it leaves a swirl pattern of foam and a coating on the glass. Aroma is dark treacle. Flavor is deep roasted barley, near burnt toast, a hint of vanilla at first, a touch of bitter on the edges, with a mellow sweet finish. A moment of fizz, full bodied, chewy, sumptuous, with a long finish. Very nice!

12 oz. bottle. Pour is black with a chocolate ice cream head and very good lacing. The head retention in this is about 4 minutes. Smell is dark roast with a big smoke note with bakers chocolate and a bit of coffee. A touch of booze on the nose. Taste is rich, dark, very smokey and chocolatey. Bittering hop note at the end with a touch of coffee. Much like a smoked porter except bigger, more viscous and complex. Almost like a BBQ stout, very different and very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Besides the normal coffee, chocolate, coco smell there is a smell of sweetness to it, almost a sweet caramel smell. Classic dark coffee appearance, taste is raisns, coffee, bittersweet chocolate. Very complex stout, so much so that you can’t taste the 9.5 ABV. Needs more kick, very malty.
