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.

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.

tomekboniek (606) - Warsaw, POLAND - DEC 12, 2016
Data butelkowania: 11.06.2015 r. Czarne, nieprzejrzysty. Piana skromna, beżowa, pozostaje jedynie obrączka na szkle. Aromat intensywny ciemnych słodów, gorzkiej czekolady, ciemnych owoców, orzechów. Smak po ogrzaniu zmienia się z pół słodkiego w kierunku pół wytrawnego. Dużo gorzkiej czekolady, winogron, orzechów. Konsystencja kremowa, lepka. Alkohol bardzo dobrze ułożony, extremalnie pijalne. Goryczka średnia, lekko zalegająca, lecz przyjemna. Wysycenie niskie. Spodziewałem się większej petardy jak na TOP50.

Bozo_skeleton (1096) - Grenoble, FRANCE - DEC 10, 2016
Noire dense, gros collet de tres fines bulles. Aromes puissants de chocolat, café, caramel, vanille et liqueur. Ronde et puissante, du cafe plein la bouche, une finale sur du marc de cafe et chocolat amere. Humm comme c’est bon

JoTheO (157) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 9, 2016
Bottle 355ml. Jet black with a deep brown head. Medium lacing. This pack onehelluva punch in the aroma. Coffee, chocolate, licorice, soy sauce. Taste adds raisin, and dark fruits while being somewhat not unpleasantly metallic. Palate is wonderfully smooth with perfect carbonation. Finish lasts forever. Great!

Draught at Barley’s in Shawnee. Aroma is roasted malt, coffee, dark fruit. Appearance is jet black with a minimal head. Taste is roasted malt, chocolate, with a slight hint of vanilla. Mouthfeel was exceptionally creamy and luscious - more so than when I pour it from a bottle. Overall a killer imperial stout that continues to lead the pack of big imperial stouts.
