Leinenkugel's Big Eddy Russian Imperial Stout

Leinenkugel Brewing Co

USA

This was a pretty flavorful beer with a lot of character. Big Eddy is brewed with 11 different malts and 3 different varieties of hops. The hops are noticeable in the finish, but also compete with a toasted flavor, with a chocolate background as well. This was definitely a bold choice for Leinenkugels, which tends to go for less challenging, lighter beers. Leinie's made a weak attempt to put out an Oktoberfest, so I wasn't expecting much with this beer but I found myself very pleasently surprised.
