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.

Bottle 8-22-14 Consumed 11-3-14
Look- poured like used motor oil in color.
Agitate- Head has a mocha/caramel appearance.
Smell- Roasted malt with dark chocolate, followed up with a hint of alcohol.
Taste- Bitter on the front. Middle of the mouth you get a roasted coffee and malts taste that's real thick. Finish is dry and bitter. I never get that strong alcohol taste which tells me this beer hides it really well considering it's 10.5% by Vol.
Cheers
