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.

Pours black with a brown head. Aroma is of sweet aged fruit chocolate. Flavors are more of a burnt chocolate in multiple levels of fruit and roasted malt. A nice oily mouth feel.

3/4/14. Draft at Surf Club. Exemplar Russian imperial. Stronger roasted notes and bitterness than some. Still wonderfully complex and deep. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

chinchill (1371) - South Carolina, USA - MAR 4, 2014
12 oz bottle date stamped with a fill date of 2 Oct. 2012. Served in a Belgian snifter. Pours opaque and nearly black, but with red-brown highlights at the edges. Small dark tan head soon recedes. Aroma: semi-sweet and appealing but relatively subtle. Flavor: Rich and strong, with dark fruits, dark chocolate, dark roasted grains, and hints of molasses and coffee. Great balance, yet both sweet and bitter notes are easily detected.

Mudwhomper (52) - Madison, USA - MAR 3, 2014
12 oz bottled 10/02/2012, Aroma is dark fruit, booze and roast. Taste is very reflective of the aromas. Much smoother than when fresh, if I recall. Feels a little thinner than I prefer, but I still think this is a fantastic Imperial Stout

Clownoisseur (137) - Buchanan, Michigan, USA - MAR 3, 2014
2011 vintage poured into a Bell’s snifter glass. Thin brown head, diminishes quickly but leaves spotty lacing across the oily top. Sticky webs of lace cling to the glass after each sip. Aroma is balanced with sweet dark fruits, molasses, chocolate and anise. Taste is bold anise paired with chocolate and dark fruits. Nice bitter hops across the end. Finishes nice and dry. A classic.

Bottle at home, purchased Florida, rate # 700. 1st March 14. Cracked the bottle the aroma punched me in the face, full on, thick liquorice, chocolate and leather. Pours, viscous and rich, taste is rich, liquorice, salty smooth and decadent. Top drawer!

9/19/11 355ml bottle. Pours black with a thin mocha head. Aroma is a large. Slightly creamy and roasted with mild bitter chocolate. Taste is bitter but balanced well. Big roasted flavour with a creamy bitter dark chocolate and a bitter, roasted finish. Full body with a low-medium carbonation. Huge mouth feel with a perfect carbonation. Overall a superb beer. Great aroma, taste and mouth feel. Well worth tasting. Cheers!

Black hue, zero visibility with mostly diminishing fizzy light brown head. Spotty lacing. Aroma of sweet dark fruit, strong alcohol, when it warmed it smelled like soy sauce. Heavy malt and dark fruit up front with a light short coffee finish. Hints of chocolate as it warmed. Full body, oily texture, flat carbonation.
