375ml bottle, 2016 vintage. Rich roasted malt aroma with notes of molasses, licorice, coffee and dark chocolate. Pours black with a large mocha brown head that has excellent retention and lacing. Starts with rich roasted malt, molasses and some dark chocolate flavors with nice, full body and slick, viscous mouthfeel. Finishes very smooth, dry and roasty with licorice, dark chocolate and coffee flavors that coat the palate. Really nice imperial stout. BuckeyeBoy (8860) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 6, 2017

black with tan head, dense down to ring. Rich, dense dessert nose, fudgey dark chocolate alongside plum sweetness. Front palate has light booze and dark chocolate, expedition-esque roast and chocolate married bitterly mid-palate, full bodied and creamy accenting the roast, light anise esters adding depth. Very well rounded and balanced, very similar to expedition without the richness or depth.
Bottle at the March DC Tasting. Poured a dark brown color with a tan head. Aroma was roasted malts, chocolate. Flavor was semi-sweet chocolate, roasted malts, light burnt notes, vanilla woody notes. Light Belgian funk notes. Pretty good.
