Bottle poured into a tulip glass.
A- It poured a jet black with a 1 finger deep red-brown head that turned into a nice lace that left sticky rings on the glass.
S- It had mostly roasty chocolate tones. More coffee aroma came through as the beer warmed.
T- It had more roasty chocolate character in the flavor. The alcohol was pretty well masked. There were hints of coffee and a sweet bourbon-like flavor (similar to what I think of as a smoke flavor in the sour mash). The hop flavors were fairly light.
M- It was thick and creamy with medium-light carbonation.
D- The alcohol was nicely hidden in the rich flavor. It was an easy sipper that I most recently enjoyed while watching the snow fall down.
Overall- A great example in my opinion. It had robust flavor and was easily sippable.

Poured into my tulip from a 12oz bottle. These have about a year on them (purchased at the Andersons in C-Bus, OH). Bit pricey, but well worth it! Pure black (blacker than my heart) with a finger of tan head... didn't last too long. Immediate notes of coffee, molasses, and DEEP dark roasted malt. Yes. The deep roasty flavor emerged with the first swig, also a crisp bitterness. Hints of bitter chocolate and even a bit a caramel as time passed. Smooth, velvety mouthfeel. Glad I invested in a sixer, and excited to age a couple of these for upcoming birthdays (maybe '15 and '16). What a winner. One of my faves is FIS, and in my opinion (though it has some unique characteristics)... Expedition stands right up with FIS. Get some.
