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.

Aroma is dry, roasty, faint wood, vanillin, and alcohol. Heavy bodied and viscous with muted carbonation. Pours like used motor oil with a small coffee-colored head. Sweet coffee, roasted malt, good baking chocolate, raisin, smoke, tart plum. Strong sweet and bitter finish. Needs some age.

Coal charred wood aromas. Dark dark brown tan ring of head. Dry roasted chocolate charcoal slurps down like a velvet milkshake in the best way possible.

tsadich (26) - Missouri, USA - JAN 28, 2016
Super dark. Raisin smell, with a good thick foam head from a strong pour. Good when temped up, but not a go too. Thick lingering taste that is a solid stout but not to my taste.

The best brew of the night. I couldn’t even tell this was an imperial - so smooth and little bite with great chocolate and espresso.
