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 thanks to bret27. An unexpected and pleasant surprise at our last tasting. Bret walked two miles through La Selva/Seascape hills to bring this bad boy, and the effort was worth it. The beer poured out of the bottle with a pitch-black hue and had a nice tan head that left lasting foam. The aroma had some sweet coffee and fruity yeast notes. The flavor was on the fruity side with lower bitterness and lots of dark chocolate. It was more sweet up front but faded into a darker chocolate finish. Full bodied and smooth with carbonation at a medium-low level. A nicely balanced and mellow stout with a good flavor combination of fruitiness and dark chocolate.

UPDATED: NOV 3, 2012 Bottle at home. Pours black with a milk chocolate head, Milky, sweet and chocolaty lots of flavour but still rather drinkable.

illidurit (2279) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 28, 2009
Bottle courtesy bret27. Pours pitch black with a very dark tan head. Aroma is perfumey dark chocolate, a little booziness, some roastiness, brownies, light coffee. Flavor is cocoa powdery with bitter chocolate and a ton of roast in the finish. Booze makes a spicy but not overbearing appearance. Rather dry with some astringency. Another good Lost Abbey beer.

2009 bottle. Deep black pour with a mocha brown head. Nice aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, sweet cocoa. Roasted malt, a slight burnt taste, cocoa, chocolate and sweetness and a dry finish. You can taste the alcohol as the stout warms up a bit. Nice balanced flavors. Small lacing.

Bottle from Malt & Vine. Tasted blind with 14 other stouts. Pours a solid black crude with dark mocha head. Nice chocolate and bread aroma. Tastes very very sweet, but still good. Interesting oily syrupy feel with low carbonation. Little bitter finish that goes long.

Bottle. Looks really good, tastes really bad. One of my biggest dissapointements in beer tasting. Too sweet and unbalanced. I don’t like peanut butter, in fact I’m allergic to it

Pours a dark brown, almost black, with thin dark tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, slight coffee and chocolate, vanilla, and a bit of caramel. Flavor matches well with the addition of slight sweetness and dried dark fruit. Quite a nice brew.

Pailhead (6358) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - JUN 18, 2009
Bottle: The aroma has lots of black licorice, strong chocolate, plum, and a hint of roasted coffee. It pours a dark brown with no transparency and a small brown head that leaves behind some thin webbed lacing behind. The flavors starts with moderate chocolate and some light black licorice. There is some plum fruitiness in the middle. The finish has some roasted coffee and dark chocolate. Medium-full bodied with mild carbonation and a slick mouthfeel.
