COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a full-bodied stout with plenty of roast flavor as well as hints of molasses and chocolate. Ridiculous amounts of black and caramel malts make this stout smooth, creamy, and utterly opaque.

Bottle. Poured a good, thick brown with a hue of black. Good, dense, solid head that left a little lacing. Aromas of tar, pine, raisin, almond, molasses. Taste is very smooth with a hint of allspice that comes out on top. Very nice stout.

Ofortuna (322) - Grafton, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 1, 2006
A session Stout if there ever was any. Creamy head that produces a nice lacing. Complex malt aroma focusing on a nice roasted flavour. Nicely balanced hop character that dances on your tongue after the first sip has passed. Very representative of the style for those new to the stout arena and are not quite ready for the immenseness that is the Expedition.

UPDATED: MAR 9, 2007 Bottle. Good aroma of roasted malt and chocolate with a nice head to it sitting on a midnight black body. Very nice flavor. Slightly bitter with a touch of sweetness to it. Really smooth and well balanced. Very enjoyable. My go to stout.

Bellís Kalamazoo Stout 12 oz bottle Packaged 03/06, partaken 10/06 Medium pour in an English pint. Poured black with a rocky mostly lasting light brown head with excellent lacing. Smelt of moderate mild chocolate, dry nuttiness, mild coffee. Flavor was upfront strong coffee bitterness with light sweet creamy chocolate tones, followed by a strong nutty coffee bitterness with light chocolate accents, on a long bittersweet molasses finish. Mouthfeel was medium to full bodied, creamy and silky, with soft carbonation and slight astringency. Overall, a very comfortable easy drinking, flowing, tasty stout, that could use some work on the aroma.

bitbucket (2165) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - OCT 29, 2006
Bottle split with after4ever. Pours an opaque blackish brown with a light brown head. Aromas of coffee and chocolate. Creamy medium body with light carbonation. Taste brings the coffee and chocolate forward and adds a bit of malty molasses.Dry coffee and burnt toast finish with just a shade of pine.

KAME (160) - California, USA - OCT 25, 2006
UPDATED: NOV 8, 2006 I would consider this more of a porter than a stout. It has a smoky aroma and a thik smoky nutty taste. It is a good beer, but is definitely on the lighter side of stouts, similar to an Obsidian. A good beer, but Iíll take the Expedition over this anytime.

jonnabrix (137) - Newberrytown, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 23, 2006
Pours deep and dark, with minimal tan head. Aroma is faint but sweet, with chocolate and roasty malt notes. The flavor has plenty of malty chocolate and coffee. Well-balanced with slight bitterness at the end. Nice smooth, creamy palate. Overall, a great example of a stout.

Pours black with slight tan head. Very thick and dry. Very malty and smooth. Not as good as I thought it was going to be, but still okay.
