BEER INFO

Brewed by:

Style: Russian Imperial Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 10.50%

Availability: Winter

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.

Lives up to the hype. Dark, rich, deep flavor. I can see the appeal of aging this beer, but wow - this is really, really good fresh as well.

I like this beer more with age on it, but it's solid nonetheless.
