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.

12 ounce bottle. Pours pitch black with a dark tan head. Aromas of dark chocolate, molasses, coffee and slight bourbon. Flavors of cocoa, espresso, caramel, rum soaked raisins, vanilla and wood. Perfect amount of carbonation and the alcohol is hidden fairly well...incredible.

Pours out jet black with a huge cocoa head that dies slow and laces big. Smells of chocolate covered fruit, dried plums, coffee and cocoa. Taste is big chocolate, some dark fruit and coffee but all out of sorts. These flavors usually are perfect together but they all seem off. Turned off by the chalky finish. Full in the mouth and the ABV is well hidden. A victim of hype.

Poured from a 12. Aroma is boozy and fruity - raspberry and cherry. Flavor is biscuit with chocolate and caramel at first. The boozy, fruity flavor is at the end of the taste. Finishes somewhat sharp and astringent.

Getting a lot of big hard roast in this on the aroma and flavor. Canít really get passed the overall burnt character. Getting some black licorice also but thatís the only other distinguishing characteristic. The body is light for style and residual sugars are all but missing in this one. It would be good to try another batch of this to see if this one was overcooked. Thank You Leinenkugels. 2010 12oz.

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 canít taste the 9.5 ABV. Needs more kick, very malty.

trayns (246) - Beverly Hills, Michigan, USA - FEB 17, 2009
Bottle. Pours pitch black, brownish, beige head. Smells big of coffee and bitter chocolate. Taste is big, complex and robust. Typical burnt malt notes and chocolate for an impy stout. A nice spicy molasses closing note.

Tasty and robust, with roasted coffee and caramel. This stout is plenty to write home about with a mild carbonation and plenty of hops playing a fine background. This brew only wants a bit better grain balance and slightly smoother mouthfeel, but it doesn't stop Eddy from brig a wonderful addition to the party. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Black pour with little head. Aroma is alcohol, coffee, chocolate raisins, and toffee. Taste is coffee with a tangy copper present. Alcohol is apparent. Bitter after taste.
