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.

wow, over the top flavour, big malty, and even very nicely hopped. not for the faint of hearted, this is a meal in a bottle. way more powerful than the Kalamazoo stout, it is an experience for sure. thick, rich, molasses, loads of coffee and alcohol, smoke, wood, its got it all. bravo.

UPDATED: JUN 16, 2009 Bottled. Yum! I’m still cellaring my one bottle, but I got a sampler this weekend at Picadilly Beverage Shop in Champaign, IL. Heady, smoky, deep, chewy, thick, oily: all sorts of adjectives just pop into my head. Pours black and viscous. You’d almost think it was brewed exclusively with bitter black malts. Coats my little plastic sampler glass like a film of 10W-30. Exceptional.

Pours dead black with a one finger brown head. Aroma is sweet, with coffee, molasses, and brown sugar, along with alcohol notes. Flavor starts sweet with vanilla and coffee, which quickly gives over to a grassy, hoppy finish. For an 11%+ ABV brew, I think the alcohol is well masked - it’s detectable, but not overly so. Hardly any carbonation in the body - smooth, slippery mouthfeel.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2008 Pours motor oil black with tan head. Aroma is roasted and burnt malts, and coffee. Flavor is enormous. Chocolate, coffee, hops and burnt molases. Very bitter. Flavor opens up and mellows as it warms. Coats the mouth for a finish that lasts for weeks. Texture is very smooth.

Bottled. Pours black, with a tan head. Aroma is roasted malts, coffee and licorice is there in generous amounts too. Taste is dark, roasted, bread, licorice. Wow. This is a very good beer.

Was forced to drink this one out of the bottle, so I may be back to re-rate once I have a glass on hand. Great flavor, like candy in my mouth. Very malty and hoppy.

Opaque. A chocolate and roasty nose. Similar flavor with a really nice hop bitterness on the end to balance it out. The nose for me is the best part of this beer. The alcohol is warming but doesn’t effect the flavor profile. Anyway you slice it this is a top notch imperial stout.

This beer was a mellowed out Imperial. It was very black and opaque, with little head on it. I was suprised not to find the extra kick that one expects in a Imperial Stout and it was pleasantly Palatable. It had a coffee taste to it with hints of chocolate and malt. i would try this again

Papsoe (25073) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 24, 2005
(Bottle 65 cl) Completely black and opaque with a small, dark brown head. Very burned aroma. Notes of strong, black coffee and bitter chocolate. Extremely full-bodied - this almost pours like tar - lots of burned malt and a dry, burned - again - bitterness. 120805

Bottle. Black colour with a big baige head. Roasted chocolate malty, light hoppy aroma and taste. Medium to full body and a roasted finish. Great!!!
