COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The history of the bible and religion is indeed the struggle of good vs. evil. Our Serpent’s Stout recognizes the evil of the dark side that we all struggle with. This is a massively thick and opaque beer that begs the saints to join the sinners in their path to a black existence.

pilsnerrogge (2461) - Finspång, SWEDEN - JUL 16, 2014
Bottled:
Pours pitch black with a large, brown head.
Aroma is roasted malt, char coal and licorice.
Smooth and rounded mouth feel.
Taste is anise seed, licorice and roasted malt leading to a warming finish.
Really good! But I think beers this strong should come in smaller bottles.

hackobock (1198) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 13, 2014
Bottle. Pours black with a brown head. Lots of chocolate in the aroma, dried fruits, coffee, caramel, nuts and light vinous notes. Taste is medium bitter roasted chocolate, sweet caramel and licorice, finish is smooth roasted bitterness and salty licorice. Medium to full bodied, oily texture, soft carbonation.

ACHops (653) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 3, 2014
On tap @ Bambino’s. Pours thick inky brownish black with heavily lacy mocha colored head. Aroma is big dark chocolate, with boozy notes of port and bourbon. Taste is super dark charred malts, sharp hops to balance the sweetness, lingering notes of leather, oak, and a bit of raisins. Lingering dry oaky port flavors on the finish. Incredibly heavy mouthfeel, quite boozy - easily taste the 10%. Maybe lacking the barrel-aged character of similar beers, but otherwise this is a massive imperial stout. Another winner from Lost Abbey.

RexTalionis (2337) - FINLAND - JUL 2, 2014
Bottle. Pours black in color with a brown head. Roasted malts, hazelnut and chocolate in aroma. Quite delicious. Roasted coffee, dark fruits and vanilla with hints of sweetness in taste. Smooth and tasty.

djd07 (3326) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUL 2, 2014
Bottle. Pours a dark brown with medium creamy tan head that lasts leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is strong roasted malts, coffee, dark chocolate. Thick mouthfeel with roast, chocolate, and light dry finish. Very good.

Black, no head. Coffee and caramel aroma, roasted too. Flavour is similar, bitter chocolate and licorice. Good bitterness, soft, relatively light mouthfeel.

MiP (13513) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUN 26, 2014
Bottle, 11.0%. Not much aroma to speak of. Black colour. Big unstable frothy dark brown head. The flavour is sweet, roasted, jammy with a creamy and bitter finish.

Bamsen78 (2957) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUN 26, 2014
Bottle. Pours cloudy very dark brown with airy but stable dark tan head. Clear aroma of coffee, roasted malt and caramel. Sweetish onset of caramel malt, with bitter and roasty notes and touches of coffee. Well-pronounced notes of liquorice. Lingering, roasty and sweetish aftertaste. Well-balanced and good.

NeoHippie2 (924) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUN 22, 2014
Black pour with a tan head. Big roasty aromas. Coffee, roasted barley, and burnt chocolate abound. Flavor is dry with big roasted characteristics. Way drier than I would have liked. Decent but nowhere near as complex or good as I was hoping for.
