Expedition Stout brewed by Bell's Brewery - Kalamazoo, Michigan


Expedition Stout brewed by Bell's Brewery - Kalamazoo, Michigan

One of the earliest examples of the Russian Imperial Stout in the United States, 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.
  

    
Beer Review by Beer Advocate
Appearance: Dark, brooding black. A generous pour yields a killer 2.25 finger cascading mocha head. The retention is top notch, as is the lacing which rims the glass.

Aroma: Dried and candied dark fruits with just a touch of smoke.

Taste: Really a massive dose of char up front. Yeah, this is aging beautifully. Though it's rather roasty, there's still a solid hop kick on the mid, even after it's been in the cellar for a year. Black coffee runs from the mid to finish, and it lingers for some time.

Mouthfeel: Just over the top. It's silky, creamy and velvety. It feels like a penthouse suite in mouth.

Overall: Bell's Expedition Stout is easily one of my favorite non-BA RIS's. It's big, bold and brash, yet deceivingly elegant and easy to drink. This has aging potential unlike many others. Though a bit pricey, it's worth every cent you'll pay.

Bell's Brewery
Bell's Brewery, Inc. began in 1985 with a quest for better beer and a 15 gallon soup kettle. Since then, we've grown into a regional craft brewery that employs more than 100 people over an 18 state area. The dedication to brewing flavorful, unfiltered, quality craft beers that started in 1985 is still with us today. We currently brew over 20 beers for distribution as well as many other small batch beers that are served at our pub in Kalamazoo. Our ongoing goal is to brew thoughtfully, creatively and artistically. We strive to bring an authentic and pleasant experience to all of our customers through our unique ales and beers.

The Eccentric Cafe
On June 11, 1993, Bell's Brewery, Inc. became the first Michigan brewery to serve beer by the glass to the public. The Eccentric Cafe offers customers a chance to taste many of our well known beers, as well as small batch brews that are not distributed outside of the pub. Visitors enjoy its warm atmosphere and spacious beer garden. The Eccentric Cafe also features interesting food, an extensive collection of art and ephemera, and live music Thursdays through Saturdays. The Eccentric Cafe's entertainment schedule can be found here or by calling 269-382-2332.

The Eccentric Cafe underwent a significant expansion and officially reopened March 28, 2011. The core of the $3 million project is a new, dedicated music venue in what used to be a warehouse and now hosts musicians from across the country. Eight additional tap handles were added, bringing our current draft selection to 20. The restrooms were expanded and additional seating options were also part of the renovations in addition to a transformed Beer Garden, new patio and a new entry way.
