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.

alteregoo (995) - POLAND - OCT 28, 2016
Piana beżowa, drobna, całkiem ładna. Barwa czarna, nieprzejrzysta, z brązowym nieśmiałym refleksem. Trunek intensywnie pachnie ciemnym kakao, pralinami, truflami, kawą espresso, lodami czekoladowymi... W smaku przyjemnie gładkie, oleiste, pełne... Poza powtůrką tego, co w aromacie, jest fajna słodycz, likierowość, popiołowość, a wszystko skontrowane wysoką, palono tytoniową goryczką. Wysycenie drobne, niskie, ale delikatnie poszczypujące na języku. Alkohol rozgrzewający, ale kojarzący się raczej z jakimś drogim destylatem, koniakiem...
Przyznaję, że piwo idealnie trafia w můj gust - gęste, słodkie, intensywne i ładnie skontrowane paloną goryczką. Gdyby dodać jeszcze burbonowej wanilii to byłby top topůw!

12 oz bottle. Pours a thick black with full dark tan head. Aromas of condensed dark fruit, sweet dark chocolate, vanilla, and roasted malts. Flavors of rich nutty chocolate, dry roasted malts, dry black coffee and a hint of chicory. Dry and dusty. Great stuff.

Doofgoblin (496) - Chevy Chase, Washington DC, USA - OCT 22, 2016
Dang! Thatís tasty. Itís like opening a bar of dark chocolate mixed with rich toasted (almost burnt) grain. Taste is strong, bold and deliciously chocolate, malt, toffee, raisins. Pours like spent motor oil--nice work. Finish is not too sticky and has a nice bitter punch. Age this for when the zombie come...
