From tap at Thirsty Monk to a sifter. Incredibly fierce, big stout. Nose is chocolate, alcohol and coffee. Pours jet black with a thin tan head that sticks around. Looks creamy. Notes of chocolate, coffee, cocoa and, milk are followed by intense bourbon tones. Syrupy mouth feel. One of my favorites of the barrel-aged imperial stouts. This is definitely a "on and done". it will hurt you. (389 characters)

Poured into a brandy snifter with a large tan head. Black as night with just hints of red,showing through.
Aroma of bourbon mash on a highly potent backbone of chocolate, nuts and burnt toffee. Really quite amazing on how much the bourbon dominates a fairly aromatic beer anyway.
Flavor is an amazing mix of the peat and charcoal hit of the bourbon with the heavy malts and bitterings of the Expedition. For some reason the burnt characteristics of the regualr Expedition co-mingle so well with charcoally hints in the bourbon notes. Really compliment one another.
Mouthfeel is a highyl alcoholic punch of cocoa and charcoal with some resiny bitterness on the finish. Imagine regular Expedition with well blended addition of some peat and charcoal.
Drinkability was great, could not have just one. Poured too cold but after it warmed appropriately this was truly a world class beer. (887 characters)
