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.

75cl bottle from MrHanky. Pours a murky dark brown to black color with a one finger tan-yellow head that settles gracefully and laces the glass. Aroma is rich and malty with slight metallic notes and anise, chocolate, coffee, caramel, toffee, ripe dark fruit, roasted malt and slight color aromas. Flavor is sweet and malty with notes of dark chocolate, toffee, caramel, ripe dark fruit, molasses and hints of vanilla and brandy-like flavors. Generally medium to full body a pleasing sweet malty finish.

750, cork and cage. Dark pour, with a tan head. Nice and smooth. Quite rich and chocolately, toffee, nuts, coffee, smoke, tannins. Thick, oily palate. Well rounded, and very tasty.

grandet (501) - Scranton, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 3, 2009
Bottle. From Jessup Plaza. Poured a thick black color with a small light brown head. Aroma is of chocolate, coffee, roasted malt. Taste is think and creamy with lots of chocolate and roastyness. Another good one from the lost abbey.

Crushed with Jakebra at BSAF. Absolutely no complaints. Up to and beyond expectations. One full, thick, excellent imperial stout.

bottle of the 2009. Well, this certainly is a black beer. The head is a little small, but pretty dark. I go in for a sniff, expecting some Belgian qualities and am instead greated with a straight up intense American styled imperial stout. We’re talking raisins, molasses, chocolate, and some sharp roast. The thick palate is another pleasant surprise. I was just going on my prior experiences with Lost Abbey. . .this is also a great beer but much more intense and straightforward than their other offerings I’ve sampled. The giant flavor has a massive, dry roastiness and hints of black chocolate with molasses every now and again. I’d say sharp is a good descriptor for this one. Big stout. Nice.

On tap at The Blind Lady in San Diego. Brown head. Seriously, brown. Nose is serious malt. Some coffee, toffee, and soy sauce. Dark fruit too. Thick and sharp in the mouth. Again, dark fruit, roasted malt and coffee. Thick and gooey. Good stuff.

SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - FEB 28, 2009
Bottle. Pours a dark opaque black color with a huge brown head. head receeds to leave a small layer. nose is chocolate and almost a hint of mint it seems. chalky and dry. palate is oily with a bitter finish. chocolate dominates the flavors, some light pruney dark fruit notes appear. but the chocolate dominates, not in a bad way, it is good, just searching for some other flavors and am failing. it is real good though.

HonkeyBra (3680) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - FEB 27, 2009
750 ml bottle from Mreusch. Thanks man! Black pour with a tan, bubbly head. Chocolate and licorice aroma. Flavor is sweet and bitter, lots of dark fruit and dark chocolate. Really nice, medium bitterness. Thick mouthfeel with a nice carbonation. Lots of dark, bitter chocolate in the finish. Very nice beer, with no detectable alcohol.

Sample @ EBF ’09. Pours a thick black with a creamy brown head. Aroma is roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, and licorice. Taste is licorice, dark fruit, and roasted malt, with a nice bitter finish that hides the alcohol very well. I like it; I like it a lot.
