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.

Rich, smoky, sweet chocolaty aroma absolutely sent me into raptures. Appearance is fantabulous, too - opaque sable one scratch above black, with a thick, fluffy, fine-bubbled tan head. Flavor - oh, what flavor! Praise Bacchus that this beer is finally available in Georgia! However I pay for my sins in my mortal life, let it be in the realm of Bacchus, pouring beer for the blessed! Flavor is like a top-of-the-line mocha, coffee and sweet chocolate with smoky tones and a hint of molasses - seriously lip-smacking and utterly divine! Texture is silky smooth yet fairly tingly, leaving a sweet and fizzy finish. This serpent is sheer perfection! Again, my thanks to Bacchus/Dionysus for bringing this beer to Atlanta!

Full marks. Chocolate, vanilla, hints of anissete and liquorice. Very long flavour.

Vanilla coffee in aroma. Flavor of coffee without the harsh bitterness associated with coffee. Malt sweetness balanced out coffee perfectly. Finished equally as balanced.

Toasty, chocolate and doughy stout. This is the best stout that I have tasted. Beautifully balanced. Lingers lusciously on the tongue.

UPDATED: OCT 23, 2009 Excellent aroma that can be felt from 4-5 feet away. Nice thin head forms about 5 - 10 seconds after the pour. Flavor is very complex. Mixture of smokey sweetness (licorice, earth, and a nutty aspect that make it almost chewable) followed on by a wonderful dark chocolate finish that comes in late. This stout is by far my favorite. If you have the means, I highly recommend it. 2009 Vintage - Bomber. Pours dark black with a late-arriving finger or so of rusty brown head. Aroma is still awesome of mild coffee, cocoa chocolate, anise, and perhaps some dark fruit (a plum?). The flavor is flat outstanding. Matching the nose, it starts with the coffee, follows with the anise and plums, working in a roasted malt character along the way before settling into a "mix me with your Count Chocula instead of the milk" finish that actually just gave me a chill! Mouthfeel is excellent and fizzy (for a Impy Stout) and the booze is all felt in the warm burn going down the gullet, not in the palate. Still, my absolute favorite. For the price, there’s a lot of other crap out there that gets good press but doesn’t come close to the excellent balance and character that this beer has.

patrickfannon (1242) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 13, 2009
Bottle. 25.4 oz. Pours deep, deep brown with a thick, creamy, beige head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, roasted malt, barley, pepper, clove, cinnamon, and vanilla. Extremely unique nose. Firm, tight body with an amazingly smooth, crisp finish. Outrageous stout; one of the best I have ever tasted.

Petronius (55) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 18, 2012
Beautiful in the glass, very thick foam. Creamy on the palate. Dark chocolate, banana, a little alcohol, slightly bitter aftertaste. If this was a man, I’d merry him right away.

SPDickerman (1047) - Texas, USA - MAR 17, 2013
Pours pitch black with a small light brown head. Smells strongly of coffee, espresso, and chocolate, with hints of molasses and licorice. Taste is roasted coffee, espresso, licorice, hints of chocolate. Full-bodied with a slick texture and incredibly soft mouth-carbonation, Lost Abbey Serpent’s Stout finishes with hints of bittersweet chocolate.
