Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: BeerAdvocate on 01-10-2002

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.

- Bottled 22-Oct-12
- 12 oz. bottle poured into stemless wine glass on 21-Mar-13 (aged 5 months)

Overall a solid RIS, but it's got some heat at the tail end that unbalances things so I'm expecting the aging to raise the bar on this one.

- Bottled 10105 (15-Apr-10) / Cellared 7-Apr-12
- 12 oz. bottle poured into Lost Abbey teku on 4-Nov-13 (aged 3 years 7 months)

One of the top 5 non-BA stouts I've ever had. Nice roast with toasted nuts and velvety dark chocolate. Love to get a 6-er sometime and start cellaring a bunch of these.
