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.

2016 bottle. Perfectly black colour, small beige head with decent duration and lacing. Aroma of raisins, dark chocolate, milk chocolate, dark and roasted malts, with notes of espresso, mocca, cocoa. Taste is medium+ sweet and medium to heavy bitter, nicely sweet and roasted, of milk and dark chocolate, raisins, coffee, cocoa, light licorice and plum, with notes of molasses, roasty. Chocolate and roasted, burnt notes in the finish. Full body, oily, creamy texture, soft carbonation. A bit too roasted finish, but great, complex flavour. Excellent RIS, one of the best classic imperial stouts I’ve ever tried.

12oz bottle (bottled 2015, consumed 2017). Looks thick and black. Fragrant roasted malt and nougat aroma with ripe dark fruits and some aged wine notes. The mouthfeel is fairly thick and carbonation is low.

Nice reddish daaaaark brown colour. Love sweet imperial stouts like this, lots of milk chocolate and chocolate beans, strong aroma and taste of vanilla. Little bit vinous, not very complex but whatever. I like it.

Nice and proper imperial stout. Ashy, bitter stew of coffee and dark chocolate. Good balance of alcohol/bitter ratio. For its price it is an outstanding brew

Czarne z gesta drobna piana, zarowno aromat jak i smak to poezja dla odbiorcy tego dziela. Trudno jest mi opisac slowami to co sie dzieje w tej butelce. Mysle ze wystarczy jak napisze ze to jest naprawde SZTOS!!!

Bottle from de Fles Winkel. Very dark with Brown head. Smells like boozy chocolate raspberry and play doh. Chocolate, moderate bitterness, with some smooth sweetness.

[2015 Vintage] Pours deep deep brown. Looks totally black in the glass. Nicely lacing tan head. Aroma of caramelized malts, bitter coffee, dark chocolate. Warming alcoholic presence. Taste is sweet, roasty smooth cappuccino coffee, cocoa nibs, malts and medium to intense charred bitterness in the finish. Lovely balance between sweet and bitter. Warming. Oily mouthfeel, medium to full body, soft carbonation.
