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.

Brewed in the USA !!! Pours a black color with a lasting brown head. The aroma is of brown sugar, chocolate, molasses, and malts. Taste of chocolate, roasted malts, smoky wood and mild hops. The mouthfeel starts out zesty, foamy and oily. The finish however is dry and well balanced. This is a wonderful imperial stout from Lost Abbey.. :) Get some !!!!

trokini (1025) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 20, 2008
Pours jet black with a dense brown head of tiny bubbles. Roast malt, leather, cigar, bacon, coffee, chocolate and charcoal in the aroma. Huge is not a big enough deScriptor for the roasted malt. It hits like a sledgehammer. Smoked bacon, dark chocoalte, cocoa powder, and coffee are also there en masse. Nice alcoholic warmer at the back. I could drink this all night.

750ml bottle shared by BeerGestapo. Thanks Mike! Pours dark black, impermiable by light, topped by a semi-lasting brown head. Smells of licorice, dark chocolate, treacle, and a touch of alcohol. Tastes of bitter chocolate, anise, burnt sugar, with touch of smoky earthiness. A huge beer with presence to spare in the mouth, thick, oily, coating, but with a sting of carbonation. Has a long dry, roasted finish with a touch of alcoholic warmth. Very good stuff.

750ml first bottling. Pour is matte black with a head of swirling dark tan cream and lace. Aroma is rich dark chocolate and a touch of alcohol. Delicious chewy chocolate flavor without much alcohol presence. Great chewy body that coats the mouth and throat on the way down. Nice.

AllAboutStout (605) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 31, 2008
Pours a very dark brown in color with a nice inch of mocha colored head. Plenty of chocolate or cocoa flavors in the smell. Very creamy and velvety smooth in the mouthfeel. Plenty of cocoa and slight coffee in the flavor. This is lacking just a bit for me. Port/Lost Abbey is my favorite brewery, but I didn’t enjoy this as much as I thought I would.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - OCT 31, 2008
Courtesy JMFG. Pours a really dark chocolate mahogany color, virtually black in dim light. A foamy, dark, mocha colored head shows decent retention, leaving small, jagged flares and random spots of lacing on the glass. The aroma is really fudgy and chocolaty, notes of burnt caramel malts, roasty espresso, and smoothing vanilla providing perfectly complementary depth. Stewed dark fruits lurk somewhere within as well. The flavor follows suit, massively chocolaty and decadent, with plenty of dark roast, vanilla, and earthy hop character. Fruitiness continues to develop and emerge over time. A silky smooth, substantial palate finishes just a hair on the syrupy side. Great beer, overall.

PhillyBeer2112 (2679) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - OCT 30, 2008
Courtesy JMFG. Very dark, with a brown head. Tannic, somewhat acrid nose, very roasty. Big tannic sweet malts and a roasty bitter finish. There seems to be a lingering caramel sweetness. Almost a syrupy mouthfeel.

mkobes (2142) - paramus, New Jersey, USA - OCT 26, 2008
Bottle. Thanks EDA. Shared with Chuck at party. Deep dark black in color with a nice fluffy off white head. Chocolatety roasty fruity aroma. Dark fruity notes. Caramel chocolatey malty flavor. Fig, raisin and plum notes. Sweet tasting. Full bodied. Well balanced. Very drinkable. Nice.

DrHomolka (761) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 20, 2008
750ml bottle. Cork pops off loudly. Pours a very dark black with a rusty brownish red colored huge foamy head that never leaves and coats the entire top of the beer. Aroma is chocolate cake, cocoa, brownies, baker’s chocolate, chocolate frosting and vanilla frosting. Pretty much anything having to do with a chocolate cake. Taste shows dark chocolate, coffee, bitterness with a creamy mouthfeel. The beer is overcarbonated, hurting its mouthfeel and drinkability. This has a nice flavor I just wish it were less carbonated.

Bottle from Sun Devil in Mesa, AZ. I only bought one. Damn. Double damn. Truly opaque brown/black color with a large dark tan head. Aromas of coffee, treacle and really dark malt. Full bodied with foamy carbonation. There’s heat. There’s coffee. There’s a hint of treacle. As time goes on there is burnt malt bitter. Not getting chocolate. Extremely tasty. Hints of lighter fruits come and go. There’s a bitter component that could be dark chocolate. Drink this and die. Note: Marcus and I put our numbers down independently, so there was no collusion!
