Availability: Winter

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.

4.31/5  rDev +1.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

A- Pours black with a one finger light brown head. Fades quickly leaving lots of foamy lacing. Looks great.

S- Strong black coffee, chocolate, roasted malts. A bit of dark fruits (raisins, prunes). A slight alcohol scent is present.

T- Sweet dark chocolate and strong coffee. A bit boozy, but not bad for the 10.5% ABV

M- Full and thick. Coats the mouth. Love it.

O- A great stout that hides the ABV well. I'll have again, no doubt.

Serving type: growler
