COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

12 oz. Bottle. I thought I was pouring motor oil when this first came out of the bottle. Dark and viscous, with a pleasant malty chocolate aroma. This has to be one of the top 10 beers in the world.

OK..It was late in the Great Taste and Larry Bell brought out a Rehoboam of some aged Imperial Stout..it may have been Batch 3000, but I’m going to mark it down as an aged Expedition. Thin deep brown head, silky and greasy. Fully opaque. Aroma of the deepest regions of Hell with notes of brimstone and the end of the morning shift at Pete’s Coffee in Berkeley. Flavors of raisins, dates, mocha, and tiramisu. Finish is measured in furlongs. Sweetness steamrolled by alcohol and fresh tobacco. My first and only "5"!

Bottle courtesy of BBB63. I couldn’t believe my eyes when i saw a pitch and evil black pour into my glass. Completely opaque and in this rare case, i will compare its appearance to looking like used motor oil. Not much of a head created but a little brown and pink colored topping sat for a moment before breaking up. The aroma is rich in roasted malt and also shows signs of chocolate milk. Dark flavor of roasted and slightly burnt malts with a heaping hop presence. Very strong in its intensity while showing a sweet raisin taste in the beginning. Both bitter and rich, it could also be said that this might be the closest resemblance to coffee i ever tasted in a stout or in any other beer for that matter.

hammenlind (737) - Sundbyberg, SWEDEN - AUG 16, 2005
Pours black with a beige/yellow head. Roasted/burnt nose with some sweetness and small hints of coffee. Sweet-ish, chocolate, cocoa, coffee liquorice, toast and a thousand more flavours. Alittle bit of soy in finish.

Bottled at RBESG 2005. Black coloured with a brown head. Sweet roasted aroma with notes of coffee. Nice flavour with lots of coffee, hops and roasted notes. Very balanced.

UPDATED: FEB 4, 2009 (on bottle at RBESG 2005)OK, I saw the 100 ovrall and that just can´t happen; nothing is ever 100% is my humble oppinion towards life in general. This is a great stout, but for a Imp. I look for more complex beers and this is not. Has a great aroma of "old bucket for tar", also good smokenotes. taste is of molasses and malt, but too simple to be excelent. Alcoholic finsh and lots of burnt notes too. RERATED aug 08; My palate has clearly changed/learned something here. This time I get a very tarish, smooth and mellow beer, well malted and with a oily, slick finish. 4.2

Bottle @ RBESG2005. Huge roasted aroma, loads of coffee and brandy. Jet black body, small tan head. Very roasty and chewy flavor, coffee and brandy dominates. Its really good.
