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.

Uzupełnienie z notatek Daktyle, troche figi i rodzynki, gorzka czekolada z duża zawartocią kakao, goryczki brak, taka cierpkosc od suszonych owocow na finiszu

Zwart bier met beige schuimkraag. Geur: melkchocolade, wat hout en zoethout. Smaak: Kalisse! Drop, wat rood fruit, licht zoet, alcoholisch. Wat stroperig, plakkerig mondgevoel. Goede koolzuurprikkel. Afdronk: zoete, fruitige drop met alcohol. Leuk, maar misschien wel wat kalisse overkill.

Aromat stricte likierowy. W smaku jest trochę likierowego alkoholu, trochę pralin. Przy tym bardzo gładkie i wytrawne z gorzką czekoladą. Bardzo smaczne.

W aromacie czekolada, praliny, kawa, wanilia, śliwki, bardzo przyjemnie. W wyglądzie czarne z obrączką beżowej piany. W smaku czekolada, praliny, kakao, mocna kawa, tort czekoladowy, wędzone śliwki, bardzo intensywne. Ciało gęste, aksamitne, piankowe, degustacyjne, bardzo konkretna palona goryczka. Ogólnie świetny ris o bardzo ładnym zapachu, złożonym i intensywnym smaku i mocnej goryczce nadającej charakteru.

Bottle at home (bottled 11/06/15). Pours dark with a small tan head. Light sweet aroma of dark chocolate, roasted malts, coffee, salty liquorice, dark fruits, light alcohol. Taste is moderate sweet and bitter, bitter roasted hoppy aftertaste. Soft carbonation, sticky and creamy mouthfeel. Very nice. Would love to drink this more often.

Another fantastic creation from Bells! Chocolate notes all throughout with a great malt backbone. Drinks with the complexity of a fine wine. Ages well and only gets better.

W aromacie figi, rodzynki. W smaku słodkie, rodzynki w czekoladzie. Po przełknięciu zostaje rodzynka oblepiająca usta, dobre ułożone brak alkoholu

PabloZab (1543) - Wroclaw, POLAND - FEB 20, 2017
Bottle 355ml (BB 11.06.2019). Completely black with beige, short head. Nice lacing. Aroma intense with bitter chocolate and cacao notes. There is also sweet note of noble alcohol behind. Roasty bitterness, quite high and agressive but it should be such in RIS. There is bitter chocolate and intense cacao in taste with nice, sweet liquor finish. Beer is full body, warms a bit inside and in the throat but anyway alcohol is well hidden. Even though beer is roasty, it’s also very smooth. Generally it’s very good RIS, chocalate and roasty.
