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.

A textbook perfect Imperial. Bells has never been afraid of producing high gravity beers that actually have a high gravity and the sledgehammer finess of this beer shows why. A perfect blend of roasted malts with robust hop bitterness and flavor lead to a beer with unmatched complexity. Very well done.

This stout can knock you on your butt. Very thick and with no carbonation this beer is very good with a very alcoholic finish

Pours like MOTOR OIL! Super thick, chocolatey. Some burnt aromas, flavors. Extremely heavy and thick on the tongue. There's no way this could float on a Bass. Alcohol spice on the tail. This thing is an absolute MONSTER TRUCK - big kick, big dark aromas and flavors, whopping bitter and heavy hardy feel. I wish I loved stouts more... This is the most stouty stout I've ever tasted. Big thanks to PROC!!!

Opens with an incredible vinous nose. Is perhaps a bit shy on carbonation, but it really doesn't matter: this is a huge, complex, wonderful beer. Pleasantly sweet with all sorts of flavors going on: chocolate, coffee, loganberry jam, a bit of tar for good measure...

This is one of my all time favorites. It is a glass of big roasty blackness with hops to match. Tastes quite good after a couple years in the basement too.

UPDATED: MAR 31, 2005 This beer is a pot roast in a bottle. Some stouts fall short on flavor after extended drinking...not this. Aromas and flavors of black licorice, dates, motor oil, and burnt meat. You should almost cut it 50/50 with club soda. This is truly an awesome beer, and I’m going to cellar a bunch of it.

Excellent stout. Almost too thick and intense for me. This would be perfect after a long expedition. Very, very complex and good.

Very well named; this beer is quite a journey through alternating states of lovely roasted sweets and dark, complex bitters.

This is intense. This beer is so black that it's purple. More flavours than I care to count...chocolate, licorice, coffee, its all there. Tastes of alcohol present in the finish. Damn Good!!
