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.

Tide (1688) - Espoo, FINLAND - JUL 23, 2014
Bottle from Hazel’s beverage world. Black color, brown head. Bitter taste with coffee, chocolate, nuts, vanilla, roasted malts and licorice. Very smooth body, the high ABV is very well hidden. Bitter finish with chocolate, roasted malts, vanilla, oak and licorice. Exquisite imperial stout.

chinchill (1713) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 23, 2014
On tap at the brewery in San Marcos. Pours black with a short-lived head that leaves little lacing. Aroma: moderately strong and dominated by dark-roasted malts. Flavor: more funky and less fruity than the aroma, but not challenging to drink. Lightly bitter finish. Feel: medium body; medium-light carbonation. O: good, not great. High ABV is too obvious.

pilsnerrogge (2467) - 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 (1202) - 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 (654) - 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.
