COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The history of the bible and religion is indeed the struggle of good vs. evil. Our Serpents 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.

0.75 bottle. Pours black, with small, brownish head. Aromas of coffee, chocolate, molasses. Taste is moderately sweet, with well marked bitterness. Balanced, with perfectly hidden (but pleasantly warming) alcohol. Oily texture, low carbonation.

tricksta_p (4124) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - SEP 9, 2016
Bottle at home. Aroma is roasted malt, rich cocoa, chocolate cake, mocha, touch of liquorice, and lots of creamy coffee in the aftertaste. Flavour is medium sweet with some good roasty bitterness in the finish. Body is full, smooth and a bit creamy. Pretty easy drinker considering the abv. Fine balance, excellent Imperial Stout!

BroSpud (2141) - , Massachusetts, USA - AUG 31, 2016
750ml bottle. Pours black with a creamy tan head. A bit pricey but well worth it even though there are some other impy stouts out there as good or better at a lower price (hello Yeti). This is friggin delicous though. Complex notes of espresso, licorice and maybe even a hint of bourbon though not really boozy as would be expected for an 11% abv.

Can someone tell me why this California brewery (& its partner Port) have their beers for sale in Washington but not in Oregon--the beers have to come through here? Happy to see this beer at the Oregon brewers festival. Think Im posting this review on the right version--11% abv, but according to the program part aged in bourbon barrels. yum yum. dark beer with dark head.Aromas of molasses, alcohol, dark rye.Flavors of roasted malt, coffee, brown sugar & oak. so smooth, a little slick. Thank you.

Xenon (134) - Cary, North Carolina, USA - JUL 18, 2016
Very boozy. A strong molasses and mild coffee flavors. Not very memorable honestly but not because of anything bad in particular. Nose has almost a eucalyptus note to it. Most memorable part of the beer

Black color. Roasted malt aromas, caramel and chocolate. Very balanced taste, bitter dark chocolate with sweet elements of vanilla and caramel. Roasted finish with lingering chocolate cake. Solid Imperial Stout.

Type: 750-ml. bottle Glass: AleSmith Barrel-Aged Reserve snifter glass From: Barons Market in Alpine, Calif. Price: $12.99 Purchased: June 18, 2016 Consumed: June 25, 2016 Misc.: Received from Rachel for Fathers Day; No BOD on bottle; Cork and cage top Thanks, Rachel! Got this and another good one from Rachel for Fathers Day. Surprised that I had never had this one. I always think that the Los Abbey is a bit pricy across the board, but I thought I would have tried this by now. Have some high hopes. Bummed that there was no bottled on date. Poured a pitch black color with two fingers of frothy tan head. Very serene setting. Lovely. Good-to-very good spotty lacing. Excellent retention. (Sight - 4.50) Smelled dark cocoa nibs, milk chocolate, almost a chocolate cake feel, toffee, caramel, roasted coffee malts, light molasses and hints of licorice. (Smell - 4.50) Taste follows the nose nicely, maybe not quite as good. Chocolate cake, milk chocolate, dark cocoa, roasted nuts, bitter dark roasted coffee (but not overwhelming), roasted toffee, molasses, black licorice, char wood, malt chocolate and dark espresso. Not boozy at all. (Taste - 4.25) Full body. Creamy-to-sticky texture. Average carbonation. Long, smooth finish. (Feel - 4.25) This was very good, much better than I even thought. Would recommend it to anyone. (Overall - 4.25) 4.33 96 A
