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.

Ungstrup (32182) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 10, 2009
Bottled. A black beer with a brown head. The aroma is sweet with notes of malt, both sweet and roasted, and bread, as well as a slight hint of something burnt. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, alcohol, roasted bread, and coffee as well as light notes of chocolate, leading to a dry roasted finish. It also has a light acidity from the roasted malt.

Plovmand (7290) - Helsinge, DENMARK - MAY 10, 2009
Bottle. Pitch black body with a creamy brown head. Vinous aroma with heavy notes of roasted malt and chocolate. Flavour is loads of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, dried fruit and some bourbon. Thick creamy body. Lovely Impy!

GT2 (9411) - Oceanside, California, USA - MAY 9, 2009
UPDATED: JUL 10, 2010 750 mL. Pours an opaque black with a decent dark brown head. Okay lacing and retention. Aroma of roasted malt, dark chocolate, vanilla, oak, molasses, brown sugar, black licorice, heavy whipping cream. Taste is amazingly smooth with dark chocolate, raw cocoa, molasses, vanilla ice cream, espresso, black currant, and loads of whipped cream. Bitter, dry, raw cocoa finish with some sort of warming but no spicy alcohol bite. Easiest 11% I can imagine. Completely perfect in every way. 8/4/9/5/17=4.3

ReRate: 7/10/2010. Still kicking ass, massive lacing everywhere just makes this look unreal. Aroma has lots of lavender, herbals, licorice. Taste is full of cedar, resinous wood, spicy wood. Full-bodied. Makes other imperial stouts look stupid. 8/5/9/5/16=4.3

boFNjackson (4195) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 6, 2009
Bottle... Poured black with a light brown head. Oaky aroma with alcohol and sort of a medicinal character. Dry, silky palate that was also foamy and thick. Really strong taste of alcohol and strong hops and spiced whiskey flavors that were very warming. Coffee beans in the finish.

tokyogoat (1503) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 5, 2009
Pour was a very dark espresso color with a medium brown light fluffy head. Good lacing and head retention. Smells of very light coffee and dark chocolate powder. Taste is great, in my top 3 RISs (or so i am guessing). Lots of lightly roasted coffee and dark chocolate in the front, next comes the roasted barley, then washes away with a hot with alcohol syrupy end. Its hot, but not to where it damages the beer. Its a sipper, I would have liked a little more creaminess, but it does have the body that the complexity requires. Hands down my Favorite Lost Abbey beer to date.

MitchWayne (263) - Kokkola, FINLAND - MAY 5, 2009
The first thing I get from the aroma is finnish fruity alphabet candy, liquorice, fruits and coffee. The taste is coffee, liquorice and it finishes with cocoa powder and hop bitterness. Something in this reminds me of the left hand’s imperial stout but there is something very belgian working here wtih the american elements, the yeast seems to be the thing that shuffles the deck with this one. Not very roasty imperial stout, really interesting and unique, not to mention beautiful to look at.

thefrutigers (104) - , Arizona, USA - MAY 2, 2009
bottle: Poured pitch black with a thin head in a tulip glass. Smelled of rasian and molasses. Taste was thick with coffee, roasted malts and brown sugar flavors. Alcohol content balance out the bitterness nicely. Overall: Smooth drinking enjoyment!
