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.

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.

Thick black pour with a deep brown creamy head. Licorice, coffee and malt aroma. Thick coating mouth with a licorice and sweet / tangy finish. Coffee lingers on and on. Further sipping brings the bitterness up front. I like this stout, but then again, I like alot of imperials and this is near the top.

Bottle at the Lost Abbey dinner. Pours opaque black with a small milk chocolate head. Aroma of dark roasted malt, bitter baking chocolate, and some coffee. Very similar flavour plus some anise and a little caramel. Creamy mouthfeel and could not find the 11 ABV.

On tap at the Monk’s Kettle in San Fran. Pitch black pour with a one finger beige head. Big coffee and chocolate aroma, kind of smells like ice cream actually. Does an excellent job of masking its alcohol under a thick milk shake like mouth with huge chocolate flavor and mild backbeats of coffee and licorice. Not the most complex beer I’ve ever tasted, but a key example in why not all beer NEEDS to be complex.

mwelsh13 (499) - Maryland, USA - FEB 19, 2009
750 pours deep inky black with a bubbly tan head that quickly fades ti a ring. Espresso, chocolate, licorice, and sweet cream. Spiced beginning with a great bold yet mellow body for an 11% abv. Extremely smooth with a chocolate milk shake taste and aftertaste. A bit of bitter chcolate at the end. Very will done and not overdone for the style. Nice job Port Brewing.

Had last night bottle shared by MiguelMandingo. Thanks Mike! Poured a 1 finger gorgeous brown head. Fine bubbles from the laser etching on my New Belgium snifter glass caused the foam to hang around. Some lacing on the glass. Thick and black. Aroma is like chocolate ice cream. Chocolatey and sweet. A slight amount of hops. Maybe some cinnamon. Taste is roasty, chocolatey dried fruit, some bitterness. Big chocolate aftertaste that lingers for awhile. This one is a real slow sipper. The alcohol is nowhere to be found in this beauty. Mouthfeel: a little bit thick but ok for the style. Drinkability: Good but very rich. I could drink a whole bottle but it would take all day. A wonderful RIS. Not a style that you would think Lost Abbey would be good at but they’ve nailed it. Serving type: bottle
