Leinenkugel's Big Eddy Russian Imperial Stout

Leinenkugel's Brewing Company is from Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin.  They were independent but the brand is now owned by Miller (Molson Coors).

This is the 2011 vintage.  It is 9.5% ABV and made with 11 malts and grains and three hop varieties.  The beer pours jet black with a massive, thick head of dark brown foam.  The aroma is very dark roasted malt, dark cocoa, sweet and creamy.  The taste is very dark roasted malt, strong dark coffee, sweet, but with a tartness on the end.  The finish is very dry and fairly bitter.  It has a smooth and creamy mouthfeel.  This is a very intense stout.
