COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This 12-month barrel-aged version of our award-winning Imperial Stout thirsts for travel but is perfectly content to sit in your cellar, maturing until you are ready. The tough part? Deciding if you want to enjoy it now or wait until later. You can’t go wrong either way.

Ktwse (5823) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2018
Pours black with low tan head. Aroma of coffee, molasses, dried fruit, wood chips, this feels way more like regular Expedition Stout... not a bad thing, just would have expected more bourbon on the nose. Taste though is different, still coffee forward, with a ton of chocolate to boot, but we now have a more fiery, bourbon rich finish. Body is rich and creamy and velvety and just plain excellent, so smooth, soft carbonation.

Bottle thanks to RobertDale! Pours opaque black, small brown head, dissipates slowly, creamy with good lacing. Aroma is rich, mocha, bourbon, vanilla, molasses, leather, and a hint of cherry. Flavor is fully sweet, medium bitter, mega rich and smooth. Full body, creamy mouthfeel. Excellent.

erikaraeb (326) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 23, 2017
Damn this was good. Milkshake-like in bod. Balances the sweet and bitter very well. Not a whole lot of coffee going on as you might expect in such a stout. You do get the traditional spectrum of stout flavors, but done in a great way.

Thanks Dan. I'm not sure what I need to say about this one. Everyone know Expo is great and Bells is great so throw Expo in some barrels, it'll be great.
