Swingtop shared by woodchopper on BA! Dark black pour, still some carbonation and a nice slightly boozy aroma. Flavor was more subdued than the original expedition, meld of subtle bourbon, roasted dark chocolate malt and good and creamy. Thanks for sharing this!

On tap at the source. Awesome and unexpected... Pours an almost still-like soy saucey consistency, deep and viscous but without any head whatsoever. Swirling yields leggy streaks almost resembling a mead or wine like quality... Aroma is somewhat soy sauce and bourbon with a touch of booziness. Deep and rich with a heavy profile... Flavors deviate very little but offers much more complexity than black note, albeit less smooth. Bourbon forward with smooth chocolate flavors, less muted than black note, but with a bit more of a boozy intensity. Bigger than medium bodied with adequate carbonation. Despite the heat, the flavor complexity on this is nicely executed and quite similar to bourbon county stout.
