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.

TheEpeeist (3400) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 26, 2008
25.4 oz bottle. Dark brown with a whipped tan head. Nose is chocolate, banana and brown bread; deeper earth and grass. Thick, creamy and warming like an ice cream soda spiked with liqueur. Taste is espresso, dates, licorice, toffee and dark chocolate. Smooth finish, cafe au lait. I’m surprised to see such an intense stout from the Lost Abbey. Exceptional.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 24, 2008
Dry dark fruit aromatics that suggest...ta da..dried fruits. Slightly soapy scrubbed plastic notes as well. Some chocolate and boozy alcohol as well. The body od dark brown to near black with ruby highlights and holds a thin mocha colored head that is somewhat lasting. Tastes of stewed root veggies, cocoa powder, dust and astringent/roasted malts. The finish is fairly bitter.

BrotherGrendel (787) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 23, 2008
On draft at Lost Abbey. Appearance is a pitch black hue, tan creamy head dissipates to a ring, creamy lacing on the glass. Smell is coffee and roast malts, hints of chocolate, nuts, grassy hops, and alcohol. Taste is dominated by coffee and roast malts, some dark chocolate, smoke, grassy hops, and dark fruits, finishes sweet with some dry bitterness. Mouthfeel is full-bodied, smooth and creamy texture, carbonation on the lighter side. Drinkability is high, this is a solid stout with a good balance of malts and subtle hops, alcohol is well-masked.

masonjer (609) - Holt, Michigan, USA - AUG 19, 2008
Poured black into the glass with a nice dark brown head. I will be honest, this is from lost abbey so I was expecting this to be slightly overhyped. Aroma was dark fruit and bitter chocolate. Taste was more dark fruity, raisins, prunes, molasses, chocolate, smoke, roast. This beer really came together. Best imperial I have had in a while, just when I was starting to get pretty worn out on the style. I seem to like this more than most, but this really impressed me. Thanks a ton Kan!

omhper (19971) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 19, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 27, 2008 Bottled, thanks Crosling! Very black, majestic brownish head. Lots of chocolate, some coffee and tar. Sweet and concentrated. A bit of yeasty spritzyness gives it more life and a bit of Belgian air. The malt structure is soft and mild completely edgeless, which separates it from the bulk of Imperial stouts. Finishes with cocoa powder bitterness.

Sammy (8939) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 16, 2008
Thanks for the trade Crushinat0r. Pours a chocolately thick dark brown with lots of attractive dark brown head. Balance is always worth currency, and this RIS has it. Chocolate and roast and not overdone though substantially roasty. Thick mouthfeel. I have had lots of great imperial stouts recently, and this is included in the group. Satisfying and very drinkable.

Black body, fluffy brown head with filmy lacing. Aroma is of chocolate, raisins, dry cocoa powder, and espresso. Flavor has lots of chocolate and a touch of coffee roast and bitterness.
