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. Pitch black with a medium sized head. Notes of chocolate, coffee, flowers, grain and hops. Pretty well balanced. P.S. Mette is crazy about it, but is not allowed to rate it - or so says Papsoe :)

Purchased in Dillon CO at Wines and Liquors. 750ML bottle. Tasted in inappropriate glassware for the style. Pours the deepest black .. amongst the deepest I’ve seen for the imperial imperial stout category. Head is rich, brownish colour, remains throughout the tasting. Aroma is expected - , sweetness, slight liquorice hints. Flavour is smooth, rich, on initial mouthfeel - everything coalesces and then the distinction begins.. alcohol, dark chocolate, malty robustness, very slight sweetness. Overall very nice. I think the current RB percentile is more of an alcohol rating than quality of product tho.

emartell (289) - Zapopan, Jalisco, MEXICO - JUL 17, 2015
Aromas increíbles, notas a café, chocolate, cacao y ligeramente especias. Color completamente negro, densa, muy buena espuma de baja retención, carbonatacion nula. En boca, densa, licorosas, notas a café, frutos secos. Al paladar, muy compleja y no tan sencilla de beber. Se perciben muchos más sabores que solo café y chocolate. Frutos secos, especias principalmente pimienta, maltas tostadas. Definitivamente una excelente cerveza imperdible.

Very dark brown body with a medium brown head. Aroma is roasted malt, chocolate, a bit of hops. Taste is sweet, chocolatey, with medium to heavy bitterness. Oily texture, full body, average carbonation, bitter finish.

750 ml bottle at home. Pours dark brown with a small dark beige/marronish head. Intesne roasty and toasty malts. Medium body with quite some sweetness, roastiness and alcohol. Taste is dark chocolate, burnt toast and coffee grind. Very nice.

skmikeg (1327) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - JUN 28, 2015
Pours pitch black with a one finger tan head with excellent lacing. Aroma is of roasted malts, dark fruits, licorice, coffee, anise, dark chocolate, sweet malts, molasses, and some light booze. Taste is roasted malts, coffee, milk and dark chocolate, licorice, anise, dark fruits, sweet caramel malts, molasses, some light burnt wood notes, some light spicy hops, and just the faintest booze as it warms. Has a full body with a very creamy, slightly oily mouth feel and a semi bitter, slightly warming, long lingering finish. Overall, a excellent imperial stout that hides its high abv very well and has nice mouth feel to it.

Draft. Very strong and sweet coffee flavored beer. ABV 11 is a little too high to drink like a conventional beer. Need to sip it, like wine. Actually easier to drink with food than by itself. Nevertheless, clearly a very well made and flavorful beer.

King_Alex_II (643) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 16, 2015
Pitch black color with nice foam layer, but the foam disappears rather quickly. The smell is coffee and chocolate heavy. The taste is smooth, lightly carbonated and has a lot of chocolate and also some spicy chili like hotness. Smooth aftertaste. Very nice beer.

SinH4 (1089) - Garching, Bavaria, GERMANY - JUN 16, 2015
Black color with big-bubbled beige-brown head. Huge coffee and vanilla aroma, some bitter chocolate. Taste is a bit fruity, more coffee, bitter chocolate and vanilla, a spicy hot kick towards the end. Incredibly rich. Carbonation is surprisingly present. Still a silky mouthfeel. The snake bites, yes. Also because of the carbonation, and that?s why I accept this carbonation as part of the concept ;) An excellent Imperial Stout which manages to still be special! Another Lost Abbey which lives up to its reputation (I haven?t had too many).
