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.

beer_queue (85) - California, USA - NOV 12, 2016
Pours thick as hell and smells like a bunch of strong coffee with chocolate, caramel, & roasted malts following behind. Tastes is similar with an arrival full of dark coffee (Italian roasts/espresso); extra dark chocolates in middle; finishes with a lot of caramel and a bit of alcohol once the beer warms up. Thereís of course a healthy amount of roasted malts all throughout. Full-bodied and chewy texture with very low carbonation. Sticky on the lips but dried-out ending. Itís simply one of the best beers in the style and serves as a benchmark for me. (Itís not expensive either, so thatís incredible!)

The aroma is full of chocolate, coffee, caramel, charred oak, smoke, dark and dried fruits. The color is pitch black. The taste is full of chocolate, coffee, caramel, charred oak, smoke and dried fruits. The aftertaste is long and bitter. The alcohol is very present, especially on the tongue. The mouthfeel is thick and smooth. A nice beer!

Gramoit (465) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 10, 2016
Definitely deserves its reputation. So smooth and creamy, with hints of vanilla, burnt caramel and big coffee and chocolate flavours. Quite Bitter throughout, will definitely age the other bottle, as I believe this beast will only get better.

abecuellar (1) - Torreon, MEXICO - NOV 3, 2016 does not count
Robusta y con notas presentes de la malta tostada, chocolate y un poquillo de vainilla. Casi no se sienten los 10.5 grados de alcohol. Muy compleja para no estar aŮejada en barricas de algķn tipo.

heman (778) - Tychy, POLAND - NOV 3, 2016
Barwa nieprzejrzyście czarna, piana kiepska, powstaje z trudnością, redukuje się do obrączki. Aromat bardzo przyjemny i soczyście słodki. Suszone owoce i nuty porto, deserowa czekolada, a w tle delikatny sos sojowy z ulotna nutą alkoholu. W smaku piwo jest gęste i bardzo pełne. Wraz z pierwszym łykiem słodycz przyjemnie rozlewa się po ustach. Dominuje smak kawy i gorzkiej, gęstej czekolady. W tle pojawiają się suszone czerowne owoce w alkoholu. Goryczka średnio-wysoka, kakaowa, z nutami tytoniowymi, fajnie kontruje stronę słodową. Alkohol lekko podszczypuje i rozgrzewa gardło.
