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.

Does anyone else taste the forbidden fruit on this beer’s finish? From it’s rich appearance to it’s complex flavors, this is certainly a beer to admire.

750 ml bottle - big thanks to WeeHeavySD for the trade; pours motor oil thick and jet black with chocolate head; huge aromas and flavors of chocolate and coffee; just in your face thick; very sharp and hot at first sip, but the richness of the flavors begin to settle and vibrate in your mouth; wowzer; the hotness (give a few months for that) would be my only mild complaint on an otherwise delicious beer

Courtesy of Quake1028. Pours deep dark with thin brown head. In the aroma I get some roasted malts moving toward some burnt malts then fruity esters. The alcohol notes then join the fun near the end of the whiff. The taste is mildly roasty to burnt initially and backed by sweet maltiness to molasses sweetness. The burnt malt notes then build to midway. The moderate malt sweetness runs into the finish. I also get hints of a creamy mouth feel.

FoolishMortal (990) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 11, 2008
750mL bottle. Opaque black with a large rocky dark brown head. Heavy chocolate and dark alefruit aromas, tinges of smoky/roasty malt. Smokey, astringent roastiness up front. Caramel and semisweet chocolate flavors dominate. Slight toastiness in the finish, with bright alefruit and ashen character. Mouthfeel is heavy, somewhat chewy.

Draught, Lost Abbey & bottle, Coronado Brewing
Very dark brown. Big chocolate nose (more expressive from the bottle). Thick, sweet, with assertive but in step hop balance. Hints of wood and an alcoholic finish. Not all that roasty - I envision a foreign stout brewed to Imperial size.

unclemattie (4350) - Georgia, USA - MAY 10, 2008
750mL bottle caged and corked. Pours an oily jet black, beautiful brown head. Aroma of super roast. Dark roasted malt, some coffee, lots of chocolate, cocoa, and roast. The flavor is nutty, roasted grain, very chewy. Delicious and so smooth. Perfectively balanced. I don’t know how Lost Abbey does it. But they sure do it right. Be prepared... this is the real deal.

UPDATED: JUN 16, 2008 750ml bottle. Pours dark as night with a beautiful brown head which lingered to produce great lacing. Smell was quite roasty malts. Taste is what makes this stout so impressive. This is such an exquisite mix of roast malt, coffee and chocolate that I was in heaven. Mouthfeel was medium-to-thick and chewy with a slight bitter finish. Loved this stout!

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 7, 2008
750mL bottle, courtesy of kmweaver. Thanks, Ken! Black, dark tan creamy head. Sweet coffee and dark chocolate aromas warm to fruity vinous-like notes. Stale roasted coffee and sweet charred chocolate flavors continue to balance over a dark fruit component. A touch of hops pulls it together nicely in the end. Medium to full bodied, soft carbonation, bittersweet finish. Nice stuff.

Pours an opaque black with lots of floaties. Alcoholic, sweet aroma. Flavor of rich bittersweet chocolate and a somewhat tart finish.
