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.

Jet black fluid rolls out of the bottle. A very finely beaded mocha head forms on top and stays till the end. Stale dark chocolate, anise, espresso. Sweey/ sour/ tangy? Finishs with alcohol soaked toasted raisons. A more jammy, less roasty go at the style. Freakin’ yummy.

10/16/204. On tap at the brewery. Awesomeness in a bottle. Black with a tan head. Spicy chocolate, Belgian yeast, roasted malt, all in perfect harmony.

My first time being the first to rate a beer. Thanks to the wonderfully generous folks at the Lost Abbey for sharing this wonderful beer. Poured from a 750 ml. bottle, dark black with a minimal head. Aroma of coffee, but not bitter coffee, chocolate, and malt. Flavors of sweet malt, coffee,and some roasted nuts. They said it was 10.5% ABV and that was a little surprising, the alcohol was pretty well hidden. Nice creamy mouth feel. Very nice.

Vignale (2103) - Malmö, SWEDEN - OCT 8, 2014
Flaska från Craftbeer/Galatea. Tjock, maffig och fullmatad IS. Mer massor av mörk torkad frukt med viss syrlighet än choklad/kaffe. Söt och inte särskilt besk, istället torv, sötlakrits och fruktig espresso. Riktigt riktigt gott.

Excellent beer. Wonderful balance. Chocolate and some mocha. Creamy thick texture. Black pour with mocha head and lacing. Bittersweet finish. Big roast aroma. Tap at Khyber.

Pours dark with brown head. Strong coffee and mild bitterness. Not for the faint of heart, but delicious for the Imperial Stout lover.

Swaroga (1385) - Brussels, BELGIUM - SEP 21, 2014
Bottle at Moeder Lambic. Almost pitch black with brown head. Aromas of Chocolate, vanila, cheese snack, toffi and much more. Very smooth and thick mouthfeel. Wonderfully balanced taste. Mostly sweet with moderate bitterness. Wow.

DuffLover (92) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 7, 2014
Sweet aroma. Flavors of chocolate and the bitterness of roasted coffee. I like it, but if I’m feeling ghoulish, I would go with Stone’s gargoyle.

Black with a thick and lively brown head. Aroma is chocolate, some cocoa and roast. Very velvety and creamy, huge chocolate factor. Nice.
