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.

punkrkr27 (903) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - JUL 1, 2009
Bottle shared at the Kuhnhenn’s Summer Solstice. Dark black pour with a tan head. Heavy alcohol and coffee aroma with some dark fruit. The flavor was just too alcoholic and boozy for me. I had a hard time finding flavors under all the alcohol. What I did get was a little chocolate, coffee, and vinousness with a sort of oaky finish. Thick, oily body with lots of carbonation.

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.

illidurit (2284) - 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.
