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.

Two years old. Nose is dark fruit and sweet syrup. Flavours are espresso, sweet syrup, dark fruit, bitter chocolate, maybe some leather. Bursting with Flavours very drinkable. Taste big sweet med/big bitter. Full oily body with medium carbonation and lasting bitterness. Awesome beer, no doubt about it.

Packaging date of 08/22/14. This was poured into a mini snifter. The appearance was a dark brown close to black color with a less than a finger’s worth of foamy tan head that dissipated within less than about 30 seconds. The smell had a big roasty to semi-smooth bitter coffee bean leading into a delicate cocoa and light vanilla to round it all out. The taste was pretty smoothed due to the date, I’m guessing, still a nice roasty smooth coffee and cocoa delicately weaves together to lead to a decent sly roasty aftertaste and finish. On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a good sessionability about it. Carbonation definitely smoothed a bit with a nice drying edge leading into a rounded out stickiness over my tongue. Overall, I can only imagine what this is like when its fresh. It aged beautifully and I hope to have again some day hopefully fresh.

2015/05/05 - Pours a dark brown cola colour with a thick, creamy, khaki head that lingers and laces nicely. Aroma is burnt sugar, carame,l dark berries chocolate, coffee and a little vanilla. Taste is sweet burnt sugar, chocolate, dark berry notes and coffee. Moderately sweet and some solid bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium and oily with smooth carbonation. A long drying, bitter finish with some nice alcohol warmth. A little more boozy than I typically like, but still a pretty amazing stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

What can I say about Expedition Stout besides mmmmmmmm.....? This beer is absolutely delicious. The flavors are so complex and intense and they continue to build as you sip through the glass and let the beer warm and breathe. More than half of the bottles in my beer fridge are Expedition Stout that I cleaned off the Total Wine shelves as soon as I found it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Massive thick coffee and caramelization, both in aroma and flavor. Perfect carbonation and mouthfeel. Alcohol warmth was a nice addition to flavors as well. Finishes with dark fruity dry flavor.

Cantabrian (942) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - APR 19, 2015
Glorious aroma of berries, juicy, red, forst berries, in wonderful bitter chocolate. Oily looking, slick and resinous in the mouth, not much of a respectable brown head, flavours of dark chocolates, vanilla, berries, very bitter, even herbal, not as much as many other US imperial stouts, but enough to slightly spoil it - I don’t like herbal bitterness in stouts. Great beer, I must admit.
