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.

This black ale poured with a nice brown head. This is a wonderful chocolate stout that actually has a noticeable hop finish, and a subsequent warming sensation from the alcohol. Very well-crafted and quite tasty.

Deep black color with brown head when you can rouse one up. Rich, complex malty aroma with toffee, and chocolate predominate. Flavor is rich chocolate with just a hint of roastiness, complex malt flavors abound. If I had to quibble I would say that it could use a little more roastiness for a stout, but what what the heck. A really great beer! What a monster!

12 oz bottle shared w/ TChrome. Midnight black pour with a dark tan head. Head quickly dissipates to a thin covering and leaves slight lacing on the snifter. Nose is pungent spiciness, soy sauce, musty fruit, a small amount of hoppiness, and some alcohol. Slick, silky, smooth, and thick mouthfeel. Little or no carbonation. Flavor has so much going on Ė roasted coffee, chocolate, sweet caramel, just enough hop bitterness in the finish. This is about as good as gets!

(#1600 ratings) Bottle. Yeast at the bottom. Pitch black colour wih a little but nice head. Lovely smooth aroma with notes of sweetness, little hops, roastedness, chocolate and little caramel too. Amazing flavour of smooth chocolate, roastedness combined with sweet and alcoholic, also hints of hops. Very nice eneed.

UPDATED: JAN 30, 2007 Wow! If you like stouts, you will love Bells Expedition Stout. This is one of the best stouts I have ever had. Pours black. If not for the thick, carmely head, it could easily be mistaken for motor oil. The aroma is somewhat lacking. I would have liked a stronger, richer smell. The taste and texture make up for this, however. Rich, bittersweet chocolate, cherries, and malt. In the mouth you find creamy roasted grains. There is a mild alcohol and spice taste on the way down the hatch, which left me salivating like Pavlovís dog for the next sip. I purchased Bells Expedition Stout at Blue Max Liquors in Burnsville, MN. It is rather expensive, close to $18 after taxes for six bottles. Bells Expedition Stout is, without doubt, worth the price.

Hangover (1126) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - DEC 6, 2006
Got this one for my 400th rating. Pours black, black, black with an initially large bubbling reddish head that quickly fades to nothing. Roasted malt and chocolate aroma with a good bit of alcohol. Flavor is off the hook. Rich, oily mouthfeel. Instantly warming. Hops tingle the palette and there is a huge rush of cherries, chocolate, molasses, vanilla leading to a warm and boozy finish. This is a true beer to enjoy and not at all overrated.

Pours a dark brown color, with a small head. Smell is heavy malty, sweet, and roasty. Sweet taste of molasses and heavy sugars. The flavor is dark, sweet, and warm chocolate. Coffee aftertaste follows quickly. Very full palate and strong tasting beer.

frizzzzle (76) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - DEC 4, 2006
Pours a dark brown color, with very few orangeish bubbles on top. Smell is heavily malty, sweet, and roasty. Sweetness is molasses and heavy sugars. The flavor is dark, sweet, chocolatey, and warm. The roasted sweetness up front changes to a chocolatey bitterness further in, leaving a roasted coffee finish and quickly fading aftertaste. This brew changes throughout the drink, lending to quite an experience. Iím gonna have to pick some more before itís all gone. Delicious.
