Bell’s Expedition Stout. Alcohol content ca 10.5%

I was surprised by the beer. I’d not had a high gravity beer before, and in many respects, drinking this thing felt like drinking wine. The aromaticity of wines, particularly of chardonnays, was present in this beer, which otherwise had the character of a thick heavy brew with a lot of flavor and a smooth and bitter finish. I was happy drinking about half of this beer. I had one more beer before this one and I know my “feel good” point when drinking. Midway through, this beer left me right there and I didn’t have to have any more.

There is a fine review of this beer by Dr. Beer Love.
