Tap at Romans’ Pub Bells Bash. Great beer! I thoroughly enjoyed this beer. The only thing I wish it had more of was sweetness with Vanilla or Chocolate, but that is not a complaint, just a preference.

Tap at Romans. I could stick my nose in the glass all day. Great brew. Sweetness from the double cream balances the expedition well.

On tap at the Brass Tap, poured a dark black color, aromas of bourbon, chocolate, vanilla, and some oak. Flavors are the same as the aroma, was an 8 ounce pour and had a velvety texture. As the beer warmed more bourbon came through.

Had twice in Feb and March on tap. Pours a dark black with little to no head. An aroma of bourbon, vanilla and chocolate. Flavorful taste with bourbon, toffee, chocolate and vanilla with a little roast on the finish. Plenty good, I could never have enough of this beer over time.

750 ml corked bottle. An opaque black beer, with a small. frothy, lightly lacing, mostly diminishing brown head. The aroma is heavily malty (roasted grain, chocolate, coffee), very ligfhtly hoppy (grapefruit), with notes of vanilla, dark fruits, blackberry, and generally berries, alcohol, wood, bourbon, hints of licorice. The flavor is heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Full body, velvety/creamy texture, soft carbonation, very long finish with moderate bitterness, moderately alcoholic. Simply stunning, outstanding, jaw dropping aroma, complex and powewrful in two words, rather nice flavor balance and it gets better as it warms. Not overwhelming bourbon and alcohol presence. Extraordinary, but I slightly prefer the regular Expedition due to a slightly "better" mouth experience. But so glad to have tried this one.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Maduro pre-GTMW. Opaque black brown. Rusty beige head. Smooth bourbon chocolate aroma. Sour licorice tones. Some tobacco burn...or maybe I’m just in Maduro. Syrupy bourbon notes, distant vanilla. A burner, but rich and sweet. A touch too much bourbon-liquor tones for me,

On tap at Busters. Pours black with a tight tan soapy head that fades to a film and some lacing. Aroma shows bourbon and vanilla with roasted burnt chocolate malt. Taste is bitter dark bakers chocolate some anise and bourbon wood and dark pitted fruit. Palate is full and sticky with a drying finish. Really nice!

Split a large bottle with a bunch of people. Poured a pitch black, oil color with a very small light tan head, when put up to the light there were slight notes of dark brown that came around the edges. Aroma was dark fruits, highly roasted malts, with notes of vanilla bourbon. This was very smooth, a lot more smooth than I expected. There was a tinge of alcohol burn, but a lot more subdued than I expected. Very nice!
