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.

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

(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

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.

Pours with a biege, creamy head. Aroma was of malts and chocolate. Tastes of chocolate, hops and coffee. Total bliss!

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.
