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.

Doghair (312) - Illinois, USA - OCT 20, 2013
Dark and thick. Amazing aroma. Roasty dark malt, coffee, caramel and chocolate to name a few. Taste is lightly sweet roasted malt, coffee, molasses and caramel. Absolutely outstanding stout.

This is a top beer? Ok, good luck with that. My local beer-source had this so I thought I’d try it out. Unfortunately it’s a very disappointing beer. It pours like it should, for a stout of high character, but it has utterly no diversity on the tongue that I can tell. Honestly I just wash through these and barely notice I had them. I recall being very disappointed on first sip that it wasn’t actually the flavorful, nuanced beer I had paid 16+ change for but rather a watery, washed out stout that has all the characteristics of goodness but none of the depth. Looking for chocolate, vanilla bean, coffee? Not here. Not even peppers, I honesty can’t taste anything in this beer. That this is a top 50 beer to me is hilarious, or maybe it’s because these people haven’t tasted Yeti stouts. I immediately thought this stout tries to do what Yeti does but fails. Reason Yeti’s been top of the heap for years, still best stout poured out of a regular bottle. The biggest disappointment, is again, the indecipherable taste, which one assumes was guessable when you realize there’s no description of the flavor profile on the bottle wrapping. One of the more boring beers and for the price a complete waste. You all should get out to a pub and try more beers. I’d take Dogfish head Breakfast Stout over this any day because at least you can taste something, even if it’s too sweet. Honestly I think they should take this ’expedition stout’ back to the lab because it didn’t work, the party was lost.

12oz bottle. Dark black color with a brown head. Booze dark chocolate coffee malt aroma. Chocolate bitter coffee toffee flavour. Smooth heavy body. Very nice imperial stout. I expect it would be even better after some ageing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ronaldtheriot (1876) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - MAR 11, 2017
Expedition Stout has a thin, tan head, a very dark brown appearance, and minimal lacing. Aroma is strong and full- very dark brown bread crust, some alcohol, some chocolate powder, and cream. Taste is of those elements, with acrid bitterness from the char, with black cherry. Mouthfeel is full-on heavy & silky, and Expedition Stout finishes medium wet/dry and bold. RJT

jhamp9 (1785) - Corinth, Texas, USA - MAR 9, 2017
Pitch black pour with a dense creamy khaki head. Oily lacing. Aroma is big chocolate, roast, coffee, and some berry in the background. Taste is milk and dark chocolate, bitter coffee, roasty, berry, and some toffee. Nice sweet and bitter balance. Thick body. Very nice stout.

Kapsel (193) - Warsaw, POLAND - MAR 8, 2017
W aromacie kawa, czekolada, kakao, karmel. W smaku czekolada, kawa, popiół, kontrująca słodycz goryczka. Sporo ciała, niskie wysycenie. Dobre piwo, ale bez fajerwerków.

Hopverdju (1000) - BELGIUM - MAR 1, 2017
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.
