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.

Uit de fles geschonken. Een prachtige imp. stout. Aromas van geroosterde mout, gedroogd fruit, chocola. Smaken van groosterde mout, lichte rook, gedroogd fruit, chocola, hout, koffie. Bijzonder complex, verschillende lagen en mooi in balans. Olie-achtige structuur en een heerlijke volle nasmaak die lang in de mond blijft hangen. 1 van de beste stouts die ik tot nu toe heb gedronken.

Pours deep black with thick brown head. Nose is chocolate and soy sauce. Aromas are roasted malts, chocolate, licorice, woody and nutty notes. Low carbonation, full body, thick texture. Long roasty, sweet and alcoholic finish. Well balanced and astonishing imperial stout!

Samuel214 (401) - SWEDEN - JUN 3, 2016
Flaska på Rådhuskällaren/Rex, Umeå. Spanade in Rådhuskällarens utbud i förhand och var ett solklart val att testa denna. Svart vätska med två fingrar högt moccabrunt skum. Stor doft av fudge, kola, choklad och lena kaffetoner. När den kommit upp i temperatur även en tendens till grönt äppelskal och lite mer bäriga toner. Stor, len kropp. Kaffe, choklad, kola, lite körsbärssylt i bakgrunden. Lätt chark och rökighet i avslutningen. En välkomponerad, icke-extrem imperial stout. Vissa likheter med Great Divides Yeti. Rakt igenom bra.

Amady (10) - Stuttgart, Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - JUN 1, 2016
. Huge frothy head that wouldn’t leave. Lots of malt in nose, as well as coffee and chocolate. The taste packs the same with give and take in sweetness and bitterness; maybe a touch of prune.
