COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Expedition Stout aged in Traverse City Whiskey barrels. Vanilla, bourbon, nutty, chocolate, warming.

Note: This edition has only been available at Bell’s Eccentric Cafe and special events. All Barrel-Aged Expedition batches prior to the 2016 bottled version, which used Four Roses bourbon barrels, have used Traverse City Whiskey barrels, and the most recent batch is 13.2%. The exceptions to this rule are the Two James and Heaven Hill barrel-aged variants, which were one-offs and have their own unique entries.

Bottle. The pour is very dark with a nice foam over. The aroma is nice blend of booze, malt, and chocolate. The taste is pretty smooth. A little bitter upfront, but finishes very smooth. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The_Osprey (9723) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 25, 2017
September 2017 - Keg at Beavertown Extravaganza. As 'Bell's Traverse City 355 Expedition Stout'. Black, opaque, foamy brown head leaves dotted lacing. Aroma is twiggy, whisky, cocoa powder. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is rich molasses malts, earthy cocoa powder, twiggy woody notes with integrated whisky. Very good. (7-4-8-4-16=3.9)

jredmond (8839) - New York, New York, USA - NOV 24, 2017
Sampled at GABF 2017 with Paul and Larry. Pours a rich black body with thin tan lace. Mouthfeel is rich and full bodied with notes of melted brownie, brown sugar, cinnamon, vanilla, oak and bourbon. Alcohol character is tamed well and balanced through a full-bodied flavor profile.

Lilja (3541) - Malmö, SWEDEN - OCT 2, 2017
Fat på MBCC 2017. Tack Samuel214. Kolsvart med liten brun skumkrona. Smak och doft av bourbon, whisky, massor av marsipan, likörpralin, mycket choklad, romrussin, lite kokos och toffee. Någonstans långt bak kanske lakrits. Helt klart en av de bästa stoutsen för dagen. En ruskigt bra grundstout har blivit än bättre. Mycket gott!

Backlog z Mikkeller Beer Celebration Copenhagen 2017. Znakomite piwo podobnie jak podstawa, choć beczka zabrała nieco ciała.
