This is a really good Impy. Pours thick, viscous black from the bottle, with a medium brown head. Lots of lacing on each of the two I had, with strong coffee, cocoa, and something almost fruity in the nose. Flavor is impressive, especially when you consider Leinies doesnt make anything even remotely like this beer. Strong smoky coffee and cocoa, with some tiny hints of fruit and alcohol, but not too much. Like was said below, this is the closest Ive tasted to a sessionable Imperial Stout.

Big Eddy is a well above average imperial stout, Somewhat Surprising coming from Leinies, And I like Leinies. Pours like motor oil, thick and black, and almost no carbonation, Dark tan Head. Aroma has roast and sweet Malt and Chocolate aroma. Lots of smoke and wood in the flavor. Several Layers of taste, Chocolate, Esspresso, Vanilla, Dark Fruit, and a Hop bite in the middle of all that, a med/Heavy body, Very impressive. It does have a light alcohol Fade. I would like to let this for a year.

Appearance is black with some slight deep mahogany tint. Pours a nice tan/brown creamy head even after aging for a year. Aroma is raisin, plum, licorice, and cocoa. Also pick up slight smokiness in the nose. Taste starts with raisin and deep roasted chocolate with a slight hint of coffee mon the back end. Despite the deep, rich malt the hop bitterness balances out the flavor nicely. Mouthfeel is slightly creamy, medium bodied for an imperial stout. Finishes with a nice hop bitterness balance and warming from the alcohol. Overall, a great imperial stout.

From bottle : Pours completely black, with a half finger of brown head, that lasts a few minutes then slowly starts fading, leaving decent lacing. Nose of lots of malt, molasses, some coffee, and a little tiny hint of chocolate. Very thick syrup like feel as it enters the mouth, also very chewy. Taste has a lot of molasses in it, with malt, and a milk chocolate finish and aftertaste. Very full bodied with a smooth mellow feel and taste. Very little bitterness present, as well as very little alcohol. Quite good.

Pours dark black with off white head, aroma is roast and plum fruitiness. Very smooth palate with nicely balanced roasty flavor, little bit of chocolate and above average amount of smokey malt taste.. Very full of flavor but not to bitter, easy to drink...Very surprisingly good stout from a company I thought I heard sold out.

pours black with a slowly developing medium brown head. Aroma is earthy, toasted malt, slight black coffee. Very creamy mouth feel. Excellent rich taste. Toasted malt, some bitterness on the finish with a pleasant linger. 9.5 ABV is well disguised. Great stout!

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 deep, flat black with a tan, chalky head. The nose was a bit lacking in my opinion, some chocolate and roast, but mostly bitter/smokey, maybe anise as well. The excellent, chalky, burnt malt, chocolate, syrup, and a lot of dark, rich fruit. Interesting combination of flavors. Alcohol is barely noticeable. Mouthfeel is big, thick and a soft. Really good beer, and a pretty unique imperial stout.
