COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The history of the bible and religion is indeed the struggle of good vs. evil. Our Serpentís 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.

Pours a nice dark chocolate colored foamy head. Dark as sin brown body with fair amount of carbonation clinging to the glass. Aroma has hints of chocolate and other malts. Ainít no hops in that bouquet!! The flavor? Now I know how Eve felt when tempted by that damn snake. Flavors explode in the mouth. Lots of sugary goodness with an alcohol chaser following quickly behind. Body is full enough to support the 11% alc, but not too thick to make it a chore to drink. Smal amount of bitterness lingering on the tongue in the aftertaste. Not enough to be a distraction. Yet another winner Iíve tasted from Lost Abbey.

First of all, this is one of the thickest bodied beers Iíve ever tasted. Its like used motor oil. I thought I was going to have to tap the bottle ketchup style to get it all out. Very black and dense to say the least. Nice dark brown head that setlles down to a small but creamy layer. The aroma is complex, alcohol, chocolate, coffee, fruitcake, rum. It has moderate carbonation. Very sweet flavor like chocolate, coffee, and rumcake. The sweetness is the first thing you taste on the tip of your tongue with a salty bitterness in the finish. There is a nice roasted smokey aftertaste. This is a very classic and powerful imperial stout.

Pours dark as night with a small light brown head. Good lacing in my snifter . Aroma is coffee, chocolate, caramel, dark fruits and some tannins. Medium to full bodied. Malt to a nice coffee bitterness. Nice beer

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.

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. Weíre 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 Iíve sampled. The giant flavor has a massive, dry roastiness and hints of black chocolate with molasses every now and again. Iíd 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.

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.
