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.

Pours oil can black with a several fingers of khaki head. The aroma is sweet dark fruit and a hint of vanilla. The taste is dark chocolate and coffee. You can also get a bit of sweetness on the back end. It is really a tasty stout. The mouth feel is a thick creamy treat. I have three of these I am going to drink and 3 I am going to age. I will try one of the three for the next three years and see how it changes.

Słaby RiS. Wali kawą, czuć trochę karmelu. Bardzo monotonnie. W smaku dość gorzkie, czuć, zaskoczenie, kawę. Goryczka zalega w przełyku, alkohol mocno wali po gardle. Nie podszedł. W zasadzie tylko do wyglądu nie mogę się przyczepić.

Pours black and opaque with a nice foamy tan head and an aroma of malt. Tastes of resinous cocoa, coffee and anise with a finish of bitter coffee and hops. It’s exceptionally full bodied and creamy with minimal carbonation. I’m assuming that the alcohol also adds to the bitter finish. It’s a little sticky as well.

Smells heavily of tamari/soy sauce. Taste has amazingly heavy roast and is syrupy thick/sweet. Really amazingly smooth for so much roast but cannot get past the soy sauce overtones. Would not buy again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Deep brown, might as well call it black, with a quarter inch or more of dense light brown foam. Aroma is malty with a hint of maybe figs and dates. Taste is roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, with just the right amount of hops to counter the sweetness. Bit of an alcohol burn on the finish. Spectacular.

Pretty much black color with a thin brown head that dissipates quickly. Aromas and flavors are like chocolate covered dried fruit with a roasted backing. Full body almost syrupy. Lengthy finish.

strap (966) - Sindelfingen, GERMANY - NOV 15, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 15, 2017 Deep black with no head. Solid flavor of cherries, vanilla, coffee. Malty with a little hoppiness . Well done

A nice, yet pronounced malt forward. Rich mouth feel and low carbonation. No light shall pass! darkness, with light head. Yup, the resinous fruit flavors are there. Could be this seasons favorite.... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. It poured a dark brown almost black color with a tan head. The aroma was of dark chocolate, roasted malts, coffee, dark fruits and some alcohol. The taste was similar to the aroma with more dark chocolate, roasted malts, coffee, dark fruits, alcohol and with medium carbonation and a heavy sweet aftertaste. Very good.
