Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

2008 vintage. I wish I had other vintages to compare it to. Well-rounded stout with chocolate and coffee flavors. Prevalent alcohol adds nice spice without becoming too hot.

I could see this being a whole different beast without age on it.
