12. Bell’s Expedition Stout

Brewed by Bells Brewery
Style: Imperial Stout
Origin: Kalamazoo, Mich.

The on-going goal of Bell’s Brewery is to brew “thoughtfully, creatively and artistically,” and its highly rated Expedition Stout is said to tick all three. One of the earliest examples of the Russian Imperial Stout in the United States, Expedition Stout offers 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. It is described as a world-class beer that lives up to the hype.
