4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, shared with Bergen Beer Geek Tasting Crew. Pours a oily black body with a small off-white head. Nose is dark chocolate, candi sugary sweet malt notes, licorice, unripe banana, leather, hints of alcohol and soy sauce. Taste is licorice, leather, dark chocolate, coffee, sweet malts and hints of unripe banana and wood. Smooth silky body, soft carbonation. Very nice and smooth imperial stout with good taste integration. Perhaps not quite worthy of the score, but still a damn fine beer.

Backlog. Bellís Expedition Stout is exactly what people all over the world rate it as...a World Class Imperial Stout.
Iíve enjoyed bottles of it the for the past 5+ years, and it is one of the most consistent Imperial Stouts.
Raisin/licorice aroma taste. Vanilla and caramel on the finish. Fantastic beer.

Bottle pours a deep dark cola with a medium tan head and notable lacing. Aroma is initially big dark chocolate and slight booziness followed by licorice and dark fruits. Taste begins with enjoyable blend of bakers chocolate and dark fruit followed by hints of espresso and licorice leading to a silky finish. Big, slightly sticky mouthfeel with flavors lingering.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle brought by my brother. Aroma: sexy. Sexy as hell. Aroma of chocolate, bourbon, roast. Pours viscous black, motor oil with minimal mocha tan head. Don't even want to drink it I'm too busy looking and smelling. Taste is roast, chocolate, beautifully integrated booze, smoky, just the right amount of coffee bitterness coming through lingering nicely in the long, luxurious finish. Silkily viscous texture, soft carbonation and full body. Overall: love this. Absolutely love this.

I did not like this beer & will not buy it again. I couldnít put my finger on it, but while I was drinking this, all I could think about was - thereís too much... (but I couldnít describe what there was too much of). Then I read it on here... 5 times the hops of their other stout. Enough said.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from a 12oz bottle into a snifter. Pours a jet black with good 2 finger mocha head and good lacing. Smells of roasted malts, cocoa, bit of day old coffee and a little booze. Taste is very rich... Cocoa up front, bit of coffee, and some hop bitterness. A bit of a sticky mouthfeel. Great stout.

If I had to compare this I would say it tastes like wake up dead but lacks the caramel notes. Without the sweet caramel notes this beer tastes a bit too strong and having more than one glass feels like too much.
