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.

This pours a pitch black color with a slight light brown head. The aroma is rich and very malty. The taste is rich, robust, and very flavorful. Delicious!

Bottle. Pours a black color with tan head. Roasty, burnt, licorice aromas. Roasty, licorice, malty, syrupy flavors. Very nice full bodied stout. Not my favorite, because it has some black licorice flavors that Iím not a fan of, but itís still a top notch stout.

UPDATED: DEC 3, 2014 330ml bottle served in a snifter glass. A: Pours a deep brown to black color forming a medium and nice thin bubbled beige head. Medium to low retention and only few spotty lacings left on the glass. A thin layer persists for quite a long time S: Strong roasted malts and coffee aroma. Licorice and very earthy yeasts. Strong notes of wood too. Very earthy and boozy in the end T: Strong roasted malts, mainly. Strong notes of coffee, brown bread, licorice, oak, earthy yeasts. Upfront taste is slightly sweet and molasses but, in overall, itís very bitter and roasted. Intense. And really bitter as an American Imperial Stout should be M: Heavy, thick, creamy and molasses body. Medium to low carbonation. Intense roasted and bitter aftertaste O: Great drinkability. An American RIS classic [ BA Review @ 7/3/2013 ]

Pours a thick inky black with a tan head leaving a little lacing. Roasted malt nose with a little chocolate. Spiciness in the front with malt coming in and a bit of molasses, chocolate, and almost burnt coffee in the end. Not bad, but not one of my fav beers for a stout.

Poured in snifter. Pours black with a mocha brown head. Rich roasted malt, coffee , cocoa, and dark dried fruits aromas. Flavor is dark roasted malt, espresso and unsweetened cocoa. Followed by a light sweet dried prune flavor. Finishing with a dark cocoa bitterness. Creamy mouthfeel. This brew is jacked up full of flavor.
