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.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - DEC 22, 2008
pours opaque black with a fairly dark brown one inch head which has some purple hues in it. crazy retention and slug-like lacing. lots of rich roasty malt aroma without a lot of astringency or char... molasses, chocolate, tar, mellow nutty coffee and some black raisins. the flavor on this thing is a monster... very robust mix of roast, dark bitter chocolate, belgian-esque yeast, black raisins, spice, florals and phenols. it is sweet but not overly and is well suited to match the bitterness. nearly full bodied but the airy soft carbonation gives it a creamy light mouth feel on the tongue. it*s very feminine yet very powerful.

this is significantly less chocolate-y than it was a year ago but the roasty bitterness is developing nicely. when it was fresh it could be poured over shaved ice to make a chocolate flavored snow cone! 8/4/8/4/17/4.1

GodOfThunder (1247) - Orlando, Florida, USA - DEC 15, 2008
Pours a black color, almost purple, with very little head. The bouquet is full of chocolate, plums, dates and other dried fruits. Full of flavor, this has just the right amount of toast and a smooth and creamy mouthfeel. Another great offering from Lost Abbey.

golubj (1377) - San Mateo, California, USA - DEC 14, 2008
Bottle. Black pour with cocoa colored brown head. Aroma is light cocoa, light roast and some milk. Flavor is some sweet chocolate, minerally roast and coffee. Alcohol is slightly noticable as well. Some raisens and pit fruit are also noticable. I liked this one.

SQNfan (591) - Wheaton, Illinois, USA - DEC 10, 2008
This poured black in color with a thick, fluffy head of fine brown bubbles. The nose had a stone/mineral component followed by rich chocolate, coffee and a touch of dark fruit. In the mouth it was full and rich but balanced by the wealth of carbonation.

ChazMania (653) - Pasadena, California, USA - DEC 2, 2008
Big corked bottle. Holy schnikes this is huge. Thick and dominating, this beer grabs your attention and does not let go. I should have split this bottle with someone as it thoroughly kicked my ass.

Jet Black, 2 fingers of head. cascaded for 2+ minutes. Looks awesome! Very dirty cream colored head that stick to everything! Overwhelming Plum, chocolate and coffee. Sorry I have to drink this now. WOW, Coffee, Bittersweet chocolate and Roasted something I can’t place. Wow I need to taste more. It’s a smooth bitterness of chocolate and coffee. Really an amazing taste! The taste alone will remind me each and every time I see this beer to grab one! Creamy like buttermilk with a light carbonation but nothing too overwhelming. The creaminess lingers a little bit after the liquid is gone. I could drink this till I had to call it a night. Drinking these it would be a quick night. I want to keep the glass attached to my lips so I can enjoy the flavors overwhelm my palate.

bierkoning (10159) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - NOV 27, 2008
Corked bottle. Almost black and opague, huge head. Cream, dark chocolate and coffee in the aroma. Roast, dark chocolate, alcohol and coffee in the flavor. A very big stout in all aspects. Full bodied, creamy mouthfeel. Delicious!

BeerGestapo (754) - Mt.Joy, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 20, 2008
Brewed in the USA !!! Pours a black color with a lasting brown head. The aroma is of brown sugar, chocolate, molasses, and malts. Taste of chocolate, roasted malts, smoky wood and mild hops. The mouthfeel starts out zesty, foamy and oily. The finish however is dry and well balanced. This is a wonderful imperial stout from Lost Abbey.. :) Get some !!!!

trokini (1025) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 20, 2008
Pours jet black with a dense brown head of tiny bubbles. Roast malt, leather, cigar, bacon, coffee, chocolate and charcoal in the aroma. Huge is not a big enough descriptor for the roasted malt. It hits like a sledgehammer. Smoked bacon, dark chocoalte, cocoa powder, and coffee are also there en masse. Nice alcoholic warmer at the back. I could drink this all night.
