They Say: “Brewed with 11 different malts including Munich, Carmel, Chocolate, classic Pale and Pale Ale, this Russian Imperial Stout provides a rich, dry character, perfectly balancing Big Eddy’s hoppy assertiveness. Warrior, Summit and Glacier hops create a bold tribute to the characteristic intensity of the flavor.”
We Say: Good things come in little packages, and Leinenkugels’ Big Eddy Russian Imperial Stout is the perfect example. Pouring from the bottle like liquid night, this beer releases distinct mouth watering notes of molasses and rich baker’s chocolate. Its thick, heavy body is filled with the pronounced flavors of dark chocolate, coffee and bits of dried fruit. Ending with a very dry roasted coffee flavor that refuses to go away, it was unanimous that this Russian Imperial Stout is worth the trouble to find and left us excited for what Leinenkugels’ Big Eddy series is going to bring us next.
