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.

maekchu (3670) - Hirakata, - OCT 30, 2012
Bottle. 2010 vintage. Tar, thick dark chocolate, smokey and phenolic nose. Black as can be, thin dark brown head. Wow! Very sharp dark fruit (berries, cherries) in a chewy initial; mid palate offers up richer chocolate and a hit of warming alcohol; final has a small and intensifying carbonation and then a heavy smokey coating. Thick palate, almost oily. A superb imperial stout. The two years have matured this beer nicely and moderated the blast of flavors and phenolic burnt rubber notes it had when fresh. Looking forward to another bottle of this vintage in a year or so.

KW92 (1376) - Warszawa, POLAND - FEB 9, 2017

Butelka z datą: 11/06/15
AROMAT: Bardzo intensywny. Pumpernikiel, rodzynki, marcepan, czekolada, paloność, nuty ziołowe (anyż), karmel.
SMAK: Z początku słodkawe karmelowo-czekoladowe. Potężna podbudowa słodowa. Posmak szlachetnej, mocno palonej kawy. Odczucie w ustach:gęste/oleiste niczym płynna czekolada. Alkohol idealnie wkomponowany w całość.
WYGLĄD: Barwa czarna, nieprzejrzyste. Piana drobna, bardzo niska, nieśmiało oblepia szkło.
OGÓLNIE: Świetnie ułożone piwo. Klasa, klasa, klasa! Jak widać na załączonym obrazku, Imperialnym Stout’om kilkutygodniowe podróże z USA do Europy nie wadzą, przeciwnie do piw mocno chmielonych dla których czas jest największym wrogiem. Choć odnoszę wrażenie, że Expedition Stout po prostu wyjechał już tak dobry już na etapie butelkowania. A gdyby tak była wersja leżakowana w beczce po bourbonie...STOP! Przecież jest Black Note Stout ;)

Achel (485) - Ioannina, GREECE - FEB 2, 2017
Opaque black, small expresso head. Expresso nose: lots of coffee and hint of licorice. Hoppy, foamy, coffeeish, chocolaty. Long licorice aftertaste. Really full-bodied.

Arôme plutôt faible. Pas de mousse. Gout de café prononcé et arričre goűt fort amčre pour un stout. Stout correct sans plus.

Lychee aroma. First is liquorish. Second is candy sugar and last is a light earthy note.

ogniskowicz (767) - POLAND - JAN 24, 2017
Bardzo klasyczny, nieco agresywny w odbiorze przykład risa. Czekolada, kawa, lekko szorstkie kakao i paloność. Szlachetne alkoholowe grzanie. Dobre, uczciwe piwo, bez udziwnień, choć biorąc pod uwagę skalę ocen - spodziewałem się nieco więcej.

Pallleon (208) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 23, 2017
Mélyfekete szín. Habja szinte nincs is. Nagyon testes, szinte krémes állagú. Étcsokoládés íz. Az alkohol alig van jelen, mintha egy kicsi kávélikőr lenne benne. Nagyon is ajánlott sör. Kategóriájának egyik legjobbja.

Riktigt svart öl. Mörk beige / brunt skum. Rostad malt, sötma, mörkt socker, torkad frukt, lite alkohol. Fantastiskt god! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
