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.

mmmbeer (1477) - Austin, Texas, USA - DEC 9, 2019
UPDATED: DEC 9, 2019 12 oz bottle from mix pack served in a shaker- poured a 2 year old/ 50 k mile used motor oil black color, one finger foamy brown head formed and lasted while I typed this out with one hand. Aroma is a heavy roasted malt, alcohol, and winter. Hits the mouth with a wide body, malt is strong and heavily roasted, alcohol rush comes in the middle but that’s fine by me, finish lasts and refuses to quit. Yum.

deyholla (15741) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 8, 2019
UPDATED: DEC 8, 2019 Sampled from the tap at First Draft Minneapolis. Pours near black with an earthy brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has dark grains and roast with a bit of chocolate and a hint of dark fruits underlying. Flavor has sweet dark grains and chocolate with dark fruits and a slightly bitter roast supporting.

the_beergery (675) - - DEC 7, 2019
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2019 12 fl oz bottle. Appearance of the pour is an intense dark opaque brown black, topped with a barely perceptible layer of brown tan froth which disappears almost immediately for good. Aroma is a mix of roasted malts, dark chocolates and a little coffee in harmonious balance. Taste is lightly bitter and smooth, dark chocolates, dried dark fruits like prunes and raisins, coffee and dark malts, again nicely balanced against each other, distinct and yet blending together well. Rich mouthfeel, oily and silky.

kalasanty (456) - POLAND - NOV 30, 2019
UPDATED: NOV 30, 2019 Butelka 0,33 l, rozlew 06.11.2015 r. Piwo smoliście czarne, nieprzejrzyste. piana jasnobrązowa, średnio niska, bardzo gęsta, opada do warstewki, piękna koronka. Aromat genialny, likierowość, szlachetny alkohol kojarzący się z destylatem, kukułki, praliny, czekolada, kawa, suszone orzechy, paloność, ciemne ciasto. W smaku słodkie, gęste i wyklejające z goryczkową kontrą, wyczuwalne są nuty deserowej czekolady, pralin, likierowe, kwaskowe kawowe, palone, kukułek, orzechowe, żywiczne. Finisz jest długi, pozostawia na podniebieniu posmak kawy i żywicy. Oleista wyklejająca faktura, pełnia wysoka do bardzo wysokiej, wysycenie niskie, goryczka średnia do średnio wysokiej, palono-żywiczna. Alkohol fenomenalnie ułożony, moc jest niewyczuwalna, objawia się jedynie jako szlachetna likierowość. Fantastyczne piwo, płynny deser czekoladowy, gęsty słodki i intensywny, nie wygląda by straciło cokolwiek na około czteroletnim leżakowaniu. Umieszczam je w top 3 risów i piw ogólnie przeze mnie pitych, absolutnie zasłużona wysoka pozycja we wszelakich rankingach.

PapaSkeetSkeet (1169) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - NOV 30, 2019
UPDATED: NOV 30, 2019 Dark brown-black with med-light warmbrown head, thin, mod retention. Chocolate, caramel, bit of soy sauce, some bread crust, bit of cold-brew coffee. Bit of grass and pine sap. Yum! Medium-big weight, syrupy, med carbonation and burn, felty. Flavor is huge a bit of seeet malt caramel up front, big pine sap, touch of earth, some grain dust, dark roast coffee and burnt toast, some brown sugar, bit of molasses, big, minerally bitterness. Wow, I get it, really good non bba stout, would love a bba version though.

voyageurmike (809) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 27, 2019
UPDATED: NOV 27, 2019 Bottle from Whole Foods, pours opaque black with thick tan head. Full bodied. Aroma of bittersweet chocolate and plums. Complex taste is rich chocolate, licorice and molasses, burnt malt. Decadent, syrupy mouthfeel. Lingering bitter chocolate finish. Superb!

17Beer (953) - Connecticut, USA - NOV 24, 2019
UPDATED: NOV 24, 2019 12 oz bottle. Pours a dense dark black brown with a massive thick brown head. Scents of toasted malt and coffee. Tastes of coffee, vanilla and alcohol warmth. Sticky start to a chalky dry mouthfeel with the bitter toasted finish lingering with a licorice sticky ending. A big beautiful stout made to define what an imperial stout should be.

riggsfc61 (801) - Franklin, North Carolina, USA - NOV 23, 2019
UPDATED: NOV 23, 2019 Found out of a bottle. Pours oil like, slow and dark black. Minimal dark tan foam. Chocolatety aroma. Great well balanced flavors with a slight booze hint. Great winter option.

beer_rookie (1006) - Arkansas, USA - OCT 26, 2019
UPDATED: OCT 26, 2019 Pretty aggressive pour results in black beer. Half finger mocha head, but a brown rimmed lacing. Whoa! Multi colored! Cool! Okay retention, excellent lacing. No floaties that I can see. Aroma is dark roasted malt. Coffee, light chocolate. Molasses. Tobacco Taste is dark malt. Vanilla. Tobacco, Grapefruit (kidding), chocolate. Bourbon and oak.. Mouthfeel is full bodied. Light alcohol burn. Burns a bit on the swallow. Smooth and rich. A bit oily. Overall it’s good. Shelf life is...unlimited...? It was bottled one year ago. It gets better? with age? Hmmm. Maybe I should have waited ten years? Anyhow...I would buy it again and I would probably recommend it.
