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.

Vighals (4338) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - OCT 17, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 18, 2017 Svart med lavt lys brunt skum. Lukter mørk sjokolade, lett kaffe, kakao og tørket frukt. Fyldig. Smaker kaffemocca, salt lakris litt mot salmiakklakris, tung karamell og noe vanilje og alkohol. (Beavex17)

UPDATED: OCT 13, 2017 2017 version is much more mature than 2016. Chocolate, coffee, licorice, fruit, toffee. Can't imagine what aging will do to this beer. Best RIS out there in opinion.

BeardedAvenger (1027) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2017
Bottle from Beautiful Beers, Bury-St-Edmunds. Smoky leather aroma. Glossy black. Thick foam dark capuccino head. Muvh lacing. Light-medium bitter, with a warmth to it. A tang. Rich coffee, Oulu tar liqour. Some burnt caramel. Thick bodied. Creamy. Sticky. Average carb. An astringent element to the finish. Retains a warmth. Warming. Never overdoes it. Great on a Sunday night. Should turn the fire on.

I try to be conservative when giving a perfect score, but I genuinely cannot find a flaw in this beer. Rich opaque dark body with light brown head. Incredibly well balanced flavor. Has the bold espresso/Arabic bean flavor you get from a Founders Breakfast, with the sweet mellow vanilla oak from a Bourbon County. Very worthy for review 100

What a phenomenal beer. The dark fruits notes are really really well blended with the dark chocolate notes in the beer. It's super smooth and delightful while also being very complex both on the nose and in the taste.

Pyrmir (6196) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - SEP 12, 2017
12 oz bottle at home, a few years old. Midnight black with tan head. Aroma has roasted malt, thick creamy chocolate, coffee, light alcohol and light liquorice. Taste is super smooth and extremely well balanced, similar notes as aroma with a salty, mineraly character in the background. Intensely enjoyable

Krjukoff (23) - SWEDEN - SEP 2, 2017
330 ml bottle. Pours black, with small head. Nice chocolate, coffee, vanilla aroma. Taste is a bit boozy, chocolate, roasty malt and coffee with a nice thick mouthfeel.

3.6
Juks (941) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 1, 2017
330ml bottle. Pours black, beige head doesn't last very long. Aroma of prunes, chocolate liquour, port wine, coffee, vanilla. Taste is ashy, prunes, chocolatey, roasty. Burnt and boozy finish. Sticky mouthfeel, full bodied, low carbo. Good stout, but little bit overrated in my opinion. Boozy.
