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.

kingaugusta (344) - Georgia, USA - DEC 3, 2022
UPDATED: DEC 3, 2022 Pours black with slight chocolate brown head. Nose is fairly weak with plums, cocoa, and a touch of coffee and alcohol. Mouthfeel is a little thin but the flavor is rich; lots of dark fruit and brandy for a Stout but it makes for a great sipper and winter warmer. Good stuff.

sjohnny (916) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUN 23, 2022
UPDATED: JUN 23, 2022 Soy sauce. Burnt toast. Some kind of prune or date. Black with a dark tan thin but frothy head. Maintains a thin layer of froth on the surface and some foam on the sides of the glass. Medium bodied. Molasses. Earth. Burnt toast. Soy sauce. Clean finish with a few sparkles on the tongue. Very nice. Big flavor but not heavy.

Arbitrage411 (186) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 23, 2022
UPDATED: MAY 23, 2022 Like pouring black thin oil into a glass. Total opacity. Ash brown head becomes paper thin leaving a band of lace. Prunes, walnut and chocolatey fragrant. Dark icing of the cake with a wet mouthfeel, the sweet of candy meets the effervescence of beer. Seems the enormous ABV is carefully titrated into this experience. Dark cocoa flavor is even alongside a carbonation that will subtly reveal. Super warmth. Strong finish.

UriahHeep (339) - Georgia, USA - MAY 11, 2022
UPDATED: MAY 11, 2022 Jet black viscous pour with dark brown head. Rich aroma of coffee and chocolate. Mine has been aging nearly a year. Unlimited shelf life is an added bonus. First sip is immense malt sweetness counterbalanced with a pleasant bitter hop bite. Lush, velvety mouthfeel. Layered with chocolate sweetness. Laced my glass with brown rings. Extremely well balanced with the hoppy finish. An unbelievably well crafted imperial stout. Among the best in this style. Nearly flawless.

MaltOne (649) - Wisconsin, USA - OCT 24, 2021
UPDATED: OCT 24, 2021 Excellent cellar worthy stout - drink some now, save some for another season. Serve closer to room temp... complexity gets muted if over chilled (also, a bit ashy when too cold). Thick, dark coffee brown with a brown frothy head. Almost a liqueur of beer. Deep roasted malts - licorice, coffee, alcohol. Don't know why this hasn't gotten on my list earlier - been buying it for years

solar (162) - - AUG 5, 2021
UPDATED: AUG 5, 2021 Amazing RIS, on tap, 12 oz. pours inky dark brown with large brown head that dissipates gently to settle on the rim. Nondescript nose, but smokiness does prevail. Taste is a delicious powerhouse of leathery tobacco chew, smoke, molasses, leather, raisins, chocolate and vanilla (at cooler temps), smooth viscous mouthfeel. Outstanding, world class, would not hesitate to have again. The only thing this beer doesn’t have is a powerful nose, but subtlety is good!

4.7
duganc (42) - , New Jersey, USA - JAN 28, 2021
UPDATED: JAN 28, 2021 OMG! Chocolate, coffee, toffee and bitter vanilla. Roasted toasty flavors. What a delicious RIS. Served in a pint glass but was still able to elicit great aromas. Alcohol is there but takes a back seat to the immense flavors.

4.8
Bebum (1638) - Massachusetts, USA - JAN 4, 2021
UPDATED: APR 12, 2021 Opaque, medium size head slow to die. Sweet chocolate aromas on nose. Full body, the most I have ever tasted, dense flavor, clearcut heat and carbonation on mouthfeel, eternal aftertaste, perfect taste on finish. Intense but powerful bittersweet style, discrete acidity to allow freshness. Divine flavor, chocolate, coffee, toffee. Beats most stouts. Jan, April 2021

4.2
WingmanWillis (1398) - Croydon, Surrey, ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2021
UPDATED: JAN 3, 2021 Bottle at home thanks to Dirty Danny. Pours black with a light tan head. Aroma is chocolate, coffee, some jammy red fruit. Taste is chocolate, coffee, jammy red fruit, loads of liquorice. Really well balanced. Good stuff

4.3
frozencemetery (38) - Massachusetts, USA - DEC 18, 2020
UPDATED: DEC 18, 2020 Pours thick, brown-black. Low head which is medium brown and fades to a thin ring. Overall appearance is viscous and intriguing. Aroma of cocoa and chocolate with a slight hint of alcohol. Rich taste of coffee/cocoa and bitter chocolate with bitter hops on the finish. Hints of sweet malt quickly balanced with robust hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is thick and slippery; thickness lingers. No noticable alcohol burn from this. Quite good. (Bottled 2020-12-10)
