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.

Nothing more to say. Well worth the $5 I paid for it. Strong finish. Sweet with a mixture of alcohol and molasses.

mfhennig (221) - McHenry County, Illinois, USA - NOV 25, 2015
Pours almost black, nice brown head fades quickly, excellent lacing. Aroma is heavily roasted barley, burnt coffee and cocoa. Taste follows. This is a nice bid thick chewy beer, one of the really good ones.

tightslice (707) - Redwood City, California, USA - NOV 22, 2015
Bottle from K&L in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is vanilla, buttery dark butters. Taste is smooth and hard to explain. Not super stylized...no overwhelming coffee or dark chocolate. Just smooth, delicious. This is a stout among stouts. That perfectly weird pop song you love on the radio but can’t explain why. A class of it’s own.

Go Lehigh. Lafayette Sucks. 2014 Bottle (13 months old) to goblet. Aroma is a lot of roasted barley. Hints of coffee also. Appearance: Dark black color, very thick, with thick light tan head. Taste: bitter dark chocolate, roasted barley, maybe a touch burnt. Excellent beer though. Feel is thick and meaty. Not quite as tasty as some other stouts, but all the peripherals are on the mark. Excited to age a few of these further.

Hoprider (264) - DENMARK - NOV 15, 2015
Pitch black pour with a lasting beige head and good lacing. Nose: espresso, licorice, dark chocolate cake. Sweet molasses. Cigar box nose. Taste: full sweet molasses and roasted malts. Straight forward, old school impy. Rich texture. Roasty, malty molasses and very mouthcoting. Coffee, licorice and medium bitterness in the finish.
