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.

Bottle at home (bottled 11/06/15). Pours dark with a small tan head. Light sweet aroma of dark chocolate, roasted malts, coffee, salty liquorice, dark fruits, light alcohol. Taste is moderate sweet and bitter, bitter roasted hoppy aftertaste. Soft carbonation, sticky and creamy mouthfeel. Very nice. Would love to drink this more often.

Another fantastic creation from Bells! Chocolate notes all throughout with a great malt backbone. Drinks with the complexity of a fine wine. Ages well and only gets better.

W aromacie figi, rodzynki. W smaku słodkie, rodzynki w czekoladzie. Po przełknięciu zostaje rodzynka oblepiająca usta, dobre ułożone brak alkoholu

Bottle 355ml (BB 11.06.2019). Completely black with beige, short head. Nice lacing. Aroma intense with bitter chocolate and cacao notes. There is also sweet note of noble alcohol behind. Roasty bitterness, quite high and agressive but it should be such in RIS. There is bitter chocolate and intense cacao in taste with nice, sweet liquor finish. Beer is full body, warms a bit inside and in the throat but anyway alcohol is well hidden. Even though beer is roasty, it’s also very smooth. Generally it’s very good RIS, chocalate and roasty.

Butelka z datą: 11/06/15
AROMAT: Bardzo intensywny. Pumpernikiel, rodzynki, marcepan, czekolada, paloność, nuty ziołowe (anyż), karmel.
SMAK: Z początku słodkawe karmelowo-czekoladowe. Potężna podbudowa słodowa. Posmak szlachetnej, mocno palonej kawy. Odczucie w ustach:gęste/oleiste niczym płynna czekolada. Alkohol idealnie wkomponowany w całość.
WYGLĄD: Barwa czarna, nieprzejrzyste. Piana drobna, bardzo niska, nieśmiało oblepia szkło.
OGÓLNIE: Świetnie ułożone piwo. Klasa, klasa, klasa! Jak widać na załączonym obrazku, Imperialnym Stout’om kilkutygodniowe podróże z USA do Europy nie wadzą, przeciwnie do piw mocno chmielonych dla których czas jest największym wrogiem. Choć odnoszę wrażenie, że Expedition Stout po prostu wyjechał już tak dobry już na etapie butelkowania. A gdyby tak była wersja leżakowana w beczce po bourbonie...STOP! Przecież jest Black Note Stout ;)

Achel (485) - Ioannina, GREECE - FEB 2, 2017
Opaque black, small expresso head. Expresso nose: lots of coffee and hint of licorice. Hoppy, foamy, coffeeish, chocolaty. Long licorice aftertaste. Really full-bodied.

Arôme plutôt faible. Pas de mousse. Gout de café prononcé et arrière goût fort amère pour un stout. Stout correct sans plus.

Lychee aroma. First is liquorish. Second is candy sugar and last is a light earthy note.

ogniskowicz (774) - POLAND - JAN 24, 2017
Bardzo klasyczny, nieco agresywny w odbiorze przykład risa. Czekolada, kawa, lekko szorstkie kakao i paloność. Szlachetne alkoholowe grzanie. Dobre, uczciwe piwo, bez udziwnień, choć biorąc pod uwagę skalę ocen - spodziewałem się nieco więcej.
