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.

12 oz bottle. Pours jet black. Smells like fruit, chocolate and booze. Tastes basically like it smells, although the alcohol is less present. Pretty bitter on the back end. Really good beer. Excellent candidate for cellaring.

Wow, this is really good. Tastes mostly of dark chocolate, with strong notes of dried fruit as well. Smooth, almost creamy going down. Incredibly good beer.

Draft - Pour very black with a dark brown head. The nose is full of rich dark chocolate and fudge. More dark chocolate in the taste, very smooth with a slight hint of alcohol. This is a very rich, great beer.

Fantastic ! ....One of the best Imperial Stouts ever !...Its in the top category with others like Founders, AleSmith, Thirsty Dog Siberian Night...these are are all so good, but taste different, so it will take time to decide which is the absolute best....$17.99 per 6 pack around N.E. Ohio....Ummmm life is good...

Pours a thick black with a frothy tan head. Certainly packs more taste and smell than other stouts. The chocolatey and roasty notes are extremely pronounced. The body is quite creamy which can even been seen from its flow. Finishes with a mildly bitter aftertaste and a little boozyness makes an appearance. Excellent. Consistent with other great beers from Bell’s.

Jow (1864) - New York, USA - FEB 15, 2014
Tap at Jeffrey. Pours jet black with pretty beige head and great lacing. Nose is chocolate and light hops. Mouthfeel is excellent velvety texture. Tastes of chocolate, plums, light leather, molasses, coffee, and some pine. Despite being rich in no way cloying and abv is pretty well hidden making this dangerously drinkable. Hopslam kicked before I got here bit this is fine consolation.

The darkest beer I’ve had, no head just a little a film for lacing. It smells and taste of chococlate, coffee, malts, toffee and it is just great

Tykflydende sort, tæt brunt skum. Intens aroma af engelsk lakrids. Smagen er tyk og fed, cremet med malt, bitterhed og mørke bær. Altsammen varer ved i lang eftersmag, suppleret af boozy alkohol. Wow.
