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.

Aroma: chocolatey, malty, with slightly dank classic stout, slightly sweet; really nice; Appearance: pitch black with thin offwhite head that lingers; Taste: huge maltiness and booziness, but smooth and very drinkable; nice to have a pure stout without a lot of extra flavoring; Palate: heavy, creamy body with long, sweet finish that’s balanced with bitterness; Overall: amazing. Might be my favorite imperial stout ever.

EerieDrinks (56) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 23, 2016
Reviewing one now, saving another for a year to see the changes. 1 finger mocha coloured head. Black as night. Aroma is dark chocolate, fudge, dates and some vinous tones. Taste is ... oh my god.. This is exactly what I want from a R.I.S. As soon as it touches the tongue, flavours just begin to bombard the mouth. Huge chocolate tones, sweet dried fruits, a hint of cherry and a warming punch of alcohol. Obvious peanut taste at the very back which just makes this even better. As it warms up, a lot of vanilla becomes apparent at the back. Thick, oily, perfectly balanced between carbonation and bitterness. Overall, this was just insane. Such classic taste notes but notched up to 100. Very close to a 10/10.

butelka. czarne, bez refleksów, ciemnobrązowa piana, utrzymująca się w postaci drobnej obrączki do końca picia. w aromacie gorzka czekolada, kakao, szlachetny alkohol. po ogrzaniu śliwka, słody palone. w smaku na starcie słodkie, przechodzące w kwaśne by na finiszu długo utrzymywać się na podniebieniu w postaci popiołu, spalenizny. alkohol przyjemnie rozgrzewa, nasycenie właściwe dla stylu.
