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.

Getting my notebook online. Bottle. Not being a big Belgium fan I was a little reluctant going into this one. As always with Lost Abbey once again eased my worries through my tongue. Pours a little thin in color. Good malt, and molasses flavors. Well balanced.

Finally I get to try this. I have sparky27 and iowaherkeye to thank! Well this was the most unique imp stout I have had in awhile. Black pour with a brown head. Aroma was chocolate and coffe with a bit of funk as well. Flavor was great, but again very unique. I tasted some chocolate, coffee, molasses and something a tad funky. LA hit a round tripper with this beer. Cheers.

Boutip (5795) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 25, 2008
Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color stout with a medium brown foamy head with great retention and great lacing. Aroma of tar with some light alcohol, some coffee and a huge Belgian style malt base. Taste is also quite different then most IS out there right now and is comprised of a mix between some tar, some light coffee, load of Belgian style malt but no black chocolate note as I had expected. Full body with great carbonation and some light alcohol was discernable. I thought this was an interesting beer closer to Allagash Black then most American style IS out there.

Pours like motor oil with somewhat frothy black head. Aroma of chocolate, caramel, roasted malt, coffee, some plum. Flavor is right on- tons of cocoa, burnt malts and coffee. Some plum, molasses, and vinous notes in at the end. I’ve been aging this one for six months, and I think that time has added some nice complexity.

Thanks Stine for sharing this gem. Dark chocolate and roasted malts on the aroma of this dark brown pour. Little head on it by the time I got around to my sample. Dry roasted malts and chocolate in the body with some pitted fruits hanging around.

Bottle; ended my streak of IPAs. Poured a really nice dark color with a big brown head. Nice looking. Lacing. Aroma of coffee, cocoa, oats, chalk and the faintest hints of caramel and vanilla. Easy drinking, in a good way. Very smooth flavor; cocoa, roasted malt, molasses and vanilla. Nice finish; full bodied. Really good stuff here.

Pours a four finger light tan head that fades very slowly to a thin layer leaving some lace. Totally black color. Good carbonation and heavy bodied. Malty/alcohol nose. Flavor is molasses and some alcohol. Some dryness at finish. Decent imperial stout. Pricey at $13.99 for a 750ml bottle from Yankee Spirits South Attleboro, Ma.

chronictonic (472) - Oreland, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 14, 2008
Bottle (also tasted tonight were Great Lakes Stout, Hoppin Frog black & tan and Green Flash Stout) - Pours black with medium tan head with good retention. Aroma is rosted malts and espresso, with some hints of sweetness. Mild alcohol notes. Flavor wasn’t as big as I was thinking it would be. Definitely roasted and coffee like - maybe some subtle dried dark fruits. Good balance of flavors for a big stout, but I liked the Great Lakes one a bit better.

Aromas of chocolate, roast, and dark fruits. Pours dark brown with a great big head into my snifter. Is a nice mix of roasted malts and pleasant sweetness in the form of chocolate and dark fruit. Dry roasty finish. Creamy body and incredibly smooth carbonation. This one is delicious.
