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.

Scipio (837) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - DEC 14, 2012
Pours all black with a dark khaki, almost brown head that slowly expands into full as the beer settles. Pretty cool. Aroma is potent, and I must say unique. Raisin and alcohol stand out the most, but there is plenty of chocolate, coffee, and licorice in here as well. Moving on to the taste, it is dominated by the darker impressions. This being chocolate and coffee, while the liquor notes are still strong. This one is is full bodied with a thick, oily texture. The aftertaste is heavy and long lasting with chocolate and raisin. The alcohol content hits you quite quickly. It doesnít hide. For what Iím looking for in this style, this might be close to perfection. I am stingy and I throw 4.5 ratings like theyíre manhole covers. But this is worth it. This might be the best stout Iíve ever had.

simont1 (575) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 16, 2016
Aroma of licorice, leather, chocolate, burned sugar, raisins plum. Taste is very complex, plum, licorice, chocolate, with a solid roasted coffee chocolate and herbaceous bitterness. To me one of the very best "clean" Imperial Stouts with Ten Fidy.

ninecats (490) - Uddevalla, SWEDEN - OCT 15, 2016
Bottle. Pours jet black, beige head with slight lacings. Aroma is big, molasses, roasted malt, leather, coffee, vanilla, tree. Well, the whole package really. Taste is creamy with big roastes malty notes, strong coffee, vanilla, finishes roasted, bitter and hides the alcohol well, red berries in the very end. Big body, medium carbo. Well, a real mouthful.

UPDATED: OCT 9, 2016 Donkerzwart met dikke cremekleurige schuimkraag die langzaamaan wegebt. Koffie, gebrande mout, chocolade met een lekkere bittere afdronk. Blijft goed plakken. Prima volle stout.

Mjp12 (1420) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 1, 2016
A great impy stout, the aroma is full of coffee and chocolate spice. Amazingly well balanced flavour, with some chocolate cream, some coffee bitterness, and a fruit spice finish. Wish I bought some more bottles , I imagine this will be amazing in 5 years!

Bottle from SB. Black with a brown head. Aromas of coffee, liquorice, fudge, soy, chocolate and some dried fruit. Tasting notes are pretty much the same with a little smokey touch.
