Beer Style: Imperial Stout
ABV: 10,5% (33 cl.)
Where did I get it: Served at Mikkeller Bar Aarhus, 80 kr.
Rating: 4 out of 5 bottle caps.
Expedition Stout has a nice, sweet and complex scent to it; a great smell of coffee and chocolate.
An incredible mouthfeel, really great. The sweetness is the foundation of this beer. But I also find a taste of liquorice, coffee and roasted malt.
Easy to drink despite the abv at 10,5%, almost like Expedition Stout is brewed with lactose. It sticks to my teeth and lips.
The aftertaste is long and roasted.
Lukas, the bar manager of Mikkeller Bar Aarhus, thought that I had to taste Expedition Stout, the day I was at the bar. It was, in fact, the day I also was on the opening day at FLASK, Aarhus’ new bottle shop.
Expedition Stout is one of the earliest Imperial Stouts in the United States, and because of its old origins I had to try it out.
