5/5 rDev +18.2%
Vintage 2006 bottle. Batch #7205 (Jan 12, 2006)
A: Very beautiful dark black with some slight mocha around the edge.
S: Buttery Milk Chocolate. Bit of raisin and a soft touch of vanilla.
T: Like a roasted Hershey bar. A bit smokey tasting that remains on your tongue.
M: Thick and full bodied. slightly creamy with little signs of carbonation.
D: The ABV will catch up with you after a while but until it does I'm going to drink the shit out of this stout!
This being a vintage review I will say I have had fresh Expedition Stout. Definitely worth holding on to and cellaring for a few years. Like a nice Port wine or a sherry. I split this bottle with a friend and I just want to slowly sip on this alll night long.

This beer poured as black as oil and almost the same texture. The head was huge, bubbly and a very dark brown color, leaving some nice lace. The aroma was amazing and had many things going on. I detected chocolate, coffee, anise and other smells. The flavor was of chocolate and burnt coffee. The finish included some of the burnt aspect. This is an amazing stout and another fine addition to the Bell's line. I am just sorry that living in Ohio(next door)it took me and the state this long to get it. This one is not for the weak and definately a sipping style of beer best done in a snifter. The amazing impact it does on all sensory levels still amazes me, even the off year with no carbonation.
