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.

When I first smelled this the immediate scent I got was Chocolate and a hint of oak. It is definitely a sipping beer but for a beer with a higher alcohol content it is very smooth and very easy to drink. As for the taste it is great. I got hints of chocolate and caramel along with some oak and even a little bourbon.
Great beer definitely worth buying and you will not regret it.
