Bell's Brewery - Eccentric Café & General Store
Michigan, United States

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.

Bottled in July of 2013

A: Pours black with half a finger of light brown head that fades into a thin ring with little lacing.

S: Roasted malts, sweet chocolate, vanilla, creamy coffee, and some dark fruit aromas dominate here. There are some graham-like aromas as well.

T: Roasted malts here as well with semi-sweet chocolate, coffee, and vanilla. There are some slight dark fruit flavors and a bit of char towards a finish that is sweet and slightly boozy.

M: Thick body with low carbonation, this beer is thick and smooth. It's a little sticky-sweet feeling as well.

O: A good imperial stout overall. Viscous and tasty with a good amount of depth.

Having tried some of Bell's other offerings and reading the reviews prompted me to seek this one out for a try. This stout pour very dark with a very dark head on the pour. There was enough of a boutique that made me want to take a nice long sip and enjoy but I was a bit disappointed. I don't equate a stout necessarily with hoppiness but that is what over-rode this tasting.
