There's been a recent nostalgic fervor over the Leinie's stuff here in the midwest, but I've never been overly-impressed with their offerings since more and more craft brews became available over the last decade.
I picked up the Big Butt for old-time's sake and to see if I'd been missing anything.
First of all, Doppelbock? Hmm. Pretty thin Doppelbock -- and what's all the Black Patent style roasted character in this beer? More toward a Schwarzbier than anything, and pretty average at that with some sourness in the finish.
Got 5 more that I'll have to give to less discerning friends.
