4.44/5  rDev +13%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A-typical stout, dark, light vanilla mocha head, doesn't stick around too long.

S-Nice layered coffee, strong roasted malt, very faint hops.

T- Coffee right up front, acidity from the coffee bites cheeks, leaves a nice roast aftertaste, leaves the mouth watery and wanting something to savior. getting coffee bitterness more so it seems than the hops. pretty tasty.

M-Creamy, very clean mild carbonation, very easy to drink. medium body.

0 A pretty good coffee stout, seeing as most coffee stouts are imperials it is nice to have a session able coffee stout that i could have in the morning as well. Recommended for coffee lovers.

4.3/5  rDev +9.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

The first Bells I've had was the Expedition Stout. I must say, that stout opened my eyes to this brewery, and I haven't been let down since, though I will say, the Expedition is the best thus far.

Look: Very little light can pass through. I just shined a bright flashlight through the opposite side of the glass and it turns only slightly red. A very dark stout.

Smell: Coffee right away. I'm not very sophisticated, so I don't smell much else. Just coffee.

Taste: Coffee. Probably one of the most up front coffee type stouts I've had. There is no mistake this stout is brewed with coffee. You won't think "is this brewed with coffee?" There is no question about it. I'm a big coffee drinker so I am very drawn to coffee stouts.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied at best. Maybe a little thinner feeling.

Overall: This is a very good stout. I would most definitely drink this again. I may buy it again if I see it. But I likely won't be on the hunt for it.
