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.

Dry dark fruit aromatics that suggest...ta da..dried fruits. Slightly soapy scrubbed plastic notes as well. Some chocolate and boozy alcohol as well. The body od dark brown to near black with ruby highlights and holds a thin mocha colored head that is somewhat lasting. Tastes of stewed root veggies, cocoa powder, dust and astringent/roasted malts. The finish is fairly bitter.

Butelka. Piwo jest czarne nawet podczas przelewania. Gęste fajnie rozpływa się w szkle, niczym olej silnikowy. Piana to jakaś przesada. Jebitna, brązowa, piękna. Aromat bardzo kakaowy i czekoladowy. Czuć trochę dobrego espresso i paloności, w głębi lekko dają o sobie znać suszone owoce. Alkoholu nie stwierdziłem. Smak dosyć słodki, ale goryczka też nie należy do lekkich, szczegolnie w posmaku. W smaku kakao i gorzka czekolada, choć jest też trochę karmelu co tworzy miejscami nuty kojarzące się z krówką. Paloność i kawa dopiero na drugiej linii i w posmaku, goryczka też głównie palona i kawowa. Ciało jest pełne, tekstura gładka i oleista.

UPDATED: MAY 13, 2016 From XXXII. In Naparbier glass, at Carlo?s house. Great, but the difference with a samuel smith imperial stout doesnt compensate the difference in price (price: 15?) Alcohol very well hidden, be careful

Butelka, hgw ktora warka ale w mojej lodowce stalo prawie rok... Fajnie oleiste przy nalewaniu, ciemna, niebrzydka ale niezbyt trwala piana, prawie czarne piwo. Aromaty mega intensywne. Czekolada gorzka, mleczna, kawa, duzo kawy, pralinki, jakies palone w tle... Ciut jakichs waniliowych nitek, ciut chlebowych, ciut ciemnych owocow suszonych. Moze nie jest to bardzo zlozone, ale zarazem jest baaaaardzo fajne. W ustach fajna, olista kobsystencja, nieco puszyste, czuc goryczke niewysoka w odbiorze, pocieszne wrazenie z wytrawnoscia - zaleznie od momentu wydaje sie bardziej slodkawe albo wrecz odwrotnie - w strone wytrawnosci. Klasa piwo. Mimo, ze bez beczki - pod wrazeniem :) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lots of roasty grain on the nose. Taste is more deep-roasted grain, some dark chocolate and a little bit of dark roasted coffee. Is quite bitter for a serious stout, which makes it very drinkable. Excellent.

Nate (3998) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 29, 2016
On tap at Brunzies. Big nose on this, sweet with alcohol, chocolate, and lots of licorice (Sen-Sen). Dark black opaque with lacing tan head. Medium-heavy body with medium carbonation, alcohol warming. Starts sweet with Sen-Sen - a licorice bomb with chocolate and coffee. Big alcohol flavor and warming. Medium bitter finish with bit sweet licorice bitter after.

man, i love lost abbey stuff, this was no disappointment. serpents is a base stout for all of their variants. aroma is bitter coffee. pours pitch black with a khaki head, big head. oily mouthfeel, not quite bcbs , but along those lines. some soy, rounded coffee, liquorice , just yummy.... reminds me of speedway but better. love this one, recommended for the real stout drinkers. enjoy. no bitter aftertaste, rounded and well balanced.

Courtesy of Lore. Black body, tan head. Aroma of chocolate, vanilla, caramel, cocoa and floral hops. Taste of cocoa, chocolate, vanilla, whiskey and oak. Fantastic imperial stout.

Lore (1931) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 8, 2016
almost black colour, surprisingly large and stable, though not that dense brown head; aroma of coffee, ash, woody and chocolate notes, some soy sauce and herbs; taste of heavy roasted coffee, herbal liqueur, dark chocolate - very darok one! well, not an overcomplicated imperial stout with an orgy of numerous aromas and extremely complex taste, but still a masterpiece!

Pitch black. Aroma of tar and soy sauce. Nice oily mouthfeel. Close to perfection!
