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.

Bottle at Torst, New York. Colour is deep black with almost no head. Aromas and flavours: Chocolate, dark chocolate, some coffee and roasted malts. Lingering taste. Quite amazing in fact.

12 oz bottle poured. Pours jet black with a swirling tan head. Wonderful chocolate roast aroma. Absolutely wonderful. In my opinion, this is exactly what a stout should be. Talk about a beer that is hyped, and lives up to all the hype, plus much more. Flavor is a really nice milk chocolate, with a medium roasted flavor to it as well. Doesn’t come off as boozy in any way at all. Almost a bit of vanilla that sneaks in to an otherwise chocolate filled finish. I can’t wait to give this one some age. Perhaps the best stout I have ever had, and ranks up there with the best of beers as well. Incredible stout. Absolutely love this.

This is about as intense as a stout can be, but I think it’s about one step too far for me to consider perfect. The body is pitch black with a dark coffee head that sticks to the glass, much like the thick, almost syrupy liquid will stick in your mouth. It’s like a chocolatey whiskey wine with all the tastes hitting hard and simultaneously.

It formed a think brownish head on it that formed in sort of a delayed reaction after the pour into a mug. It has a strong whiskey-like aroma and flavor. Very flavorful. You can tell it has a high ABV when you take a sip. It might be too much for some people (my wife doesn’t like it), but it is a treat if you like the flavor of barrel aged stouts. I suppose the whiskey flavor could be too much for some (not everyone likes whiskey).

Pours black with brown head. Heavy body. Flavors of dark chocolate, dark fruits, coffee and lots of roasted malts. Leaves a roasted coffee flavor in your mouth.
