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.

Bottle shared by sloth on Aug 1st at SL. Thanks bert! Dark in color, aroma of coffee. Followed by a small head. Taste was a smooth coffee flavor..... caramel, roasted malt and chocolate. All blended together for an easy drink 11 percent stout. Low carbonation. Overall a solid beer, and now I have my own to try thanks to Sparky27. thanks E. Thanks again bert for sharing the brew!

A standard imperial stout. Chocolate and coffee. Some metal in there, and bloody roast beer. Medium palate. I can’t understand the hype around this brewery.

sloth (2454) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - AUG 5, 2008
A viscous pour delivers a small tan head, retention is good, lace is minimal. Basically black but with some brown edging. Lots of caramel aroma with well blended notes of wood, coffee and hints of whiskey. Body is full, slick on the palate, creamy and oily with a soft carbonation. Lotsa Impy. Stout goodness in the form of caramel, coffee, dark chocolate, roast, dark fruits and berrys. Lots happening. Not overly complex but it definately keeps yer attention. Lightly sweet, roasty, fruity finish. Nice. Cheers to SDbruboy for the bottle, thanks Cliff!

fredandboboflo (1570) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 1, 2008
Bottle. Aroma big sweet coffee, sweet fruits, sweet chocolate, and of course the sweet alcohol making me type sweet a lot. Flavor heavily but not harshly roasted malt, bitter coffee finish. At first felt oddly thin in the mouth for me, probably the alcohol playing a big role, but a few sips in it became quite creamy and smooth. No one particular trait that puts it over the top, but a great combination of its parts.

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 31, 2008
Blackish pour with a nice beige head. Aroma is creamy and chocolatey with some Belgian malt/yeast detectable. Flavor is creamy, chocolatey, and a bit roasty - totally delicious. Silky, smooth, and wonderful all around with a mouthfeel that is superb. Just the right amount of carbonation for the flavor. No hint of the 11%ABV either. Another Lost Abbey winner.
