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 from Bev4Less. Mine goes to 11%. Black in color upon pouring with a dark brown foamy head. Roasty malt aromas. A little sweetness. Somewhat bitter with a little black licorice. Somewhat sweet and roasty up front. High carbonation. Some chocolate. Not all that bitter. Alcohol is very well hidden. Enjoyable impy.

Sampled a few times, plus had a 750ml on my own recently. Pours an oily black with a tan head. Lots of carbonation for the style. Nose is coffee, cocoa and alcohol. Palate is very bubbly with roasted coffee, dark chocolate and a nice hop bite in the finish. Another winner from LA.

deeelicious! great, sweet cocoa aroma; creamy with of course chocolate, a bit of bitterness and roasted malts that is a complement and contrast to the aroma, and a bit of raisin or grape because of the yeast or hops i assume... nice, big, and dark; and not quite evil because it’s so damn good! (i would give more, but i think this just hits "imperial" status due to ABV, not due to extreme malts, roasted..., etc.)

biz82 (1328) - austin, Texas, USA - APR 9, 2008
Black with a stable brown head. Vanilla, oak, chocolate aroma with some tartness and floral notes. Strong alcohol presence particularly in the sinus. Moderate body. Relatively low bitterness. Tastes like there is some dark crystal malt mingled with chocolate and roast. Dark fruit with vanilla round it out. Well balanced but not exceptional.

BOLTZ7555 (2780) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - APR 9, 2008
Sampled @ Brew Year’s Eve (then tried a bottle)...THANKS Jonpol!!! Wow, was this one young and hot!!! Felt like sizzlin’ bacon (mmm...bacon) or Pop Rocks on the tongue. Dark leather hue with a two-fingered khaki head. Aroma of Starbucks, brownies, and dark fruit. Roasted kona and bitter chocolate dominate the flavor. There is very little sweetness in this one. Give it time to age and it will be remarkable.

StefanSD (2087) - Lakeside, California, USA - APR 8, 2008
UPDATED: APR 25, 2008 750 ml bottle from Bev4less in Santee. Pours an opaque black color with a huge tan head that lasts a while. The aroma is medium-strong and complex with chocolate, plums, raisins and roasted malts. The flavor is rich with roasted malts, mocha, dark chocolate and a bit of pomegranate. The mouthfeel is smooth, creamy, full and satisfying; it just does not get any better than this. The finish is long with lingering earthy flavors. Overall: Seldom does Lost Abbey disappoint, and they didn’t this time either, they exceeded my already high expectations. A great stout. A must try for all stout lovers.

Rusty (1536) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - APR 7, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 12, 2008 750ML Bottle. Pours a thick viscous black with 3 fingers of creamy head. Lots of carbonation and excellent head retention going on here. Aroma of chocolate, malt, toasted barley, coffee and a little fruit. Flavors of coffee, fruit, malt, vanilla, roasted barley and a little hop bitterness. This stout is wonderful stuff. The flavors are very well balanced and it’s thick as night yet not too sweet nor too bitter. As for the 11% alcohol....... it’s very well hidden. Very drinkable stuff. Probably my new favorite non brewery only release lost abbey beer. Yum!

doubleo (1433) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 7, 2008
750ml bottle, thanks to me. Pours black and pretty thick looking with a crisp brown head that fades quick with a little retention. Smells of dark chocolate, roasty maltiness and sweet dark fruits. This is a dark bitter, badass of a stout. Tastes sweet and dark fruity and malty up front and dark chocolatey bitter on the finish. Very bitter acidic. Thick body, vibrant carbonation. Great beer.
