Possibly one of the most (if not the most) anticipated releases from a Wisconsin Brewery I remember. Served on tap at the Horse & Plow in Kohler. Poured into a snifter black as night that lies still at first then created a perfect deep brown head. Head diminishes leaving a great lace across the top. Aromas of Coffee, Chocolate and dark fruit with hints of Vanilla and a slight wisp of alcohol. Thick slightly sticky mouth feel but both are kept in check. Not over the top like a lot of RIS seem to be. The same can be said for the flavor. I was surprised how suppressed the alcohol presence is. Bitter coffee is prominent with a perfect amount of malt and hops. So easy to drink it's scary!
Fantastic job Leinenkugel Brewing Company- Listen to the beer geeks, not your accountants. Keep rolling out the Big Eddy releases!!!

Leine? This has got to be crap. I like craft brews!
Pour it. Go ahead! Pour it!
Leine. Think twice.
Pours dark like an RIS. nice.
smells.... chocolate, licorace,.... ris, right?
Taste is the glorius RIS. Almost light, but a good light! Rich. Licorace. Coffee. Cocoa. Just what I want in an RIS.
Mouthfeel is awesome creamy, a bit... um... better than the "craft brews"?
Overall? Ignore "Leinenkugel". This ris is a force to be wreakoned with! Totally worth the price of the craft brew next to it.

Appearance is a thick viscous black with a cappuccino-like foam crown.
Aroma is of molasses, coffee, leather, and wood with subtle spicy notes.
Taste is aligned to the aroma. Wonderful and full of complexity.
Mouthfeel and finish are full and lingering in a fantastic way. I love this beer.
