Bell's Expedition Stout
After my rather disparaging review of Bell's "Oarsman" I felt it time to redress some of the balance by reviewing one of their best beers, the rarely surpassed Expedition Stout. This is a wonderful example of a Russian Imperial stout that pours like a thick tar with a medicinal alcohol kick that you really notice (10.5%ABV). This one would age well but my impatience got the best of me. Well worth the price of admittance (about $15.99 for a six pack), along with "Hopslam" one of their truly great big beers, in my opinion. Spectacular.
