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.

Thanks to Juelze for this big-ass brew. Crushed with Jakebra. Don’t know what Honkeybra is talking about with this brew. He’s just a Wisconsin hater. Sweet nose mostly of molasses, with some soy sauce and some chocolate roast. Flavor is a little roastier with a big, thick mouthfeel. Finish is bitter and prety nice. A pretty nice Imp Stout.

Bottle 35,5 cl. Courtesy of Skyview. Pours black and opaque with a light brown head. Salty aroma of hard roasted malts. Solid body, burned dark malts, some vanilla also. Strange salinity. Hard roasted malty bitterness in the finish with some dried fruits. 130909

Bottled. A black beer with a thin brown head. The aroma is sweet with notes of soy sauce, wood, and alcohol. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of malt, roasted malt, soy sauce, and alcohol, as well as medium notes of wood, leading to a dry roasted and woody finish. Thanks Papsoe for sharing.

This one surprised me. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, and dark chocolate and some bitterness. Flavor has some hops, dark roasted malts and bitter coffee. Pretty big, just not that smooth for me.

2009-09-20. Black body with a modest chocolate brown head. Aroma is interesting, dark fruit, malt, light alcohol. Flavour is similar, dark fruit, light bitterness, very light raisin and touches of what may be oxidation. Smooth medium to full bodied palate is very lightly carbonated. Pleasant, just a touch syrupy at times, which could be helped by increased carbonation. Bottle c/o HogTownHarry

Bottled from Sonoma in Delavan. Poured black as coal; thin tan head - faded quickly. Bitter coffee taste; a little boozy for my taste but that’s just me...heavy, thick, soft palate....maybe need to age this a little to take the edge off...will try next one in a year or so...

12 oz. bottle, pours black with a tan head. Aroma of coconut, licorice, bourbon and molasses. Flavour of coconut, light roastiness, a little iodine and molasses. Sort of a mess, but it somehow works decently well.

flatmatt (1604) - Northville, Michigan, USA - JUL 30, 2011
12 oz bottle. Pours black with a tan head. Very nice aroma, with smoky coffee notes, molasses, dark fruit, dark chocolate. Flavor leads with a lot of molasses, raisin, smoky coffee, but could use some more balance instead of tilting so strongly to molasses.

(12oz bottle thanks to Exiled) espresso brown pour with a ring of tan bubbles. Nose of currant, smoke, raisin, herbal and other plants. Taste of big chocolate, prune, toasty, rich, medium thick body and a long palate duration.

Westmeister (2129) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - OCT 30, 2011
UPDATED: NOV 8, 2012 Nose of dark chocolate, roasted malts and a touch of sweetness. Taste is chocolate and malt balls with deep rich dark fruits from beginning to end and expresso as well. There is a good hop punch of bitterness. Nice RIS. Quite bold and the flavor lasts.
