One of the earliest examples of the Russian Imperial Stout in the United States, Expedition Stout offers immensely complex flavors crafted specifically with vintage aging in mind, as its profile will continue to mature and develop over the years. A huge malt body is matched to a heady blend of chocolate, dark fruits, and other aromas. Intensely bitter in its early months, the flavors will slowly meld and grow in depth as the beer ages.
Available October-March.

Just like the deScription. I drink a lot of Imperial Stouts. Yeti aged in Bourbon barrels, Big Bad Baptist, the Czar, etc. This one deserves the rating of 100. Simply delicious. Chocolatey, flavorful and screams for a scoop of ice cream!

Very big stout. Warms the tongue. Rich mouthfeel, thick, the booze it there but tucked away. Classic.

After the embarrassment of showing up to a party a day early, I got over it when I shared one of these with a good friend. This, storm king, and old Rasputin are the 3 best ever ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is a premium beer. Picked up two six packs at Harrys in Grand Forks ND. Boy, was I ever glad I did. They must not sell much of this in ND, because it was aged two years. Awesome!

12oz bottle. 2014 vintage. Had/have MANY vintages of this consummate example of the style (’97 is still the best). Great w/10 months on it but better with age. Rich, hoppy, chocolatey goodness! Full+ body and full-carbonation.
