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.

Kifogástalan küllemű, éjfekete testű, fahéj árnyalatú és igen gazdag, gyorsan fejlődő és méretes habot gerjesztő ital, kinézet tekintetében tökéletes főzet. A kitöltés során némi információhoz juthatunk a testességet illetően, igen élénknek tűnik ugyanis a szerkezet, halk járása azonban nemigen hagy kétséget a tartalmasság felől. Pörkölt kávés, pirított malátás illatok telepszenek a pohár szája köré, komoly és tartalmas aromák. Ezek után már sok meglepetés nem is érhet minket, amikor az első, bársonyosan sima, krémes és tejszínesen lágy, mégis karcosan pirított, hamusan száraz, ámde meglehetősen tartalmas és a végletekig kiegyensúlyozott kortyok legurulnak a torkunkon. Sok szót vesztegetni felesleges is, kiugrásoktól mentes, klasszikus vonalvezetésű, markáns és férfias imperial stout annak súlyával, gazdagságával és tekintélyt parancsoló jellegével.

RickTheRick (780) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 8, 2016
Une bičre d’une opacité sans équivoque, la Serpents Stout offre une mousse nuageuse qui laisse une dentelle suave derričre elle. Tous les éléments olfactifs typiques d’un stout impérial sont détectés : chocolat, café, grains rôtis, un peu de tabac et de réglisse męme. Le succčs de cette bičre réside dans sa texture aérienne qui véhicule ŕ merveille toutes les flaveurs. Pas trop lourde et sucrée, mais le taux d’alcool élevé est bien présent. Dans le style, c’est difficile de faire mieux, quelle bičre!

Bottle to snifter. Dark black thick pour. Creamy head...color of cafe au lait. Aroma is coffee, malt, dark fruits. Taste is blackberry, raspberry, chocolate, whiskey, wine, plum. Good strong stout. This will probably be my last new beer for a few weeks.

Batavi (265) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - JAN 2, 2016
Fles gekocht via firmabier.nl, uitgeschonken in Struise bierglas. Gitzwart olieachtig ondoorzichtig bier, met een opvallend hoge mokka kleurige luchtige schuimkraag. Complex en perfect aroma voor een Imperial Stout, geroosterde mout, koffie, donkere chocolade, vanille, rozijnen, vijgen en subtiele tonen van tabak en rook. Het smaakpallet is vol van pure chocolade en koffie, met zachte smaken van vanille en lichte tonen van zachte drop en tabak. Mondgevoel is zacht romig, met een behoorlijke bitterheid en perfect gebalanceerd CO2 gehalte, de afdronk is zeer lang met een mooie gebrande bitter. Mijn eerste bier van The Lost Abbey voor de 250ste rating, ook eerste Imperial Stout uit Amerika. Aan de hoge verwachting wordt ruimschoots voldaan, een heerlijke, perfect gebalanceerde stout. Ik ben ook benieuwd naar de andere bieren van The Lost Abbey zoals de Angels Share en de Track#8 die ik nog heb staan. Deze was het geld zeker waard. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Aw yiss, what a beer! Lots of roast and coffee, but little in sweetness. This beer doesn’t need it though, it is smooth and dark and damn tasty. Bitter liquorice.
