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.

Thanks to savvy1982 for the share! Pours a semi-transparent black. The aroma is sweet, fruity, and roasty. Tastes quite complex. Quite good.

Bottle. Pours a black beer with a lightbrown head. The aroma is roasted with sweetness and bread. The flavor is sweet with malt and notes of alcohol and coffee. The palate is roasted and dry. Overall a really good beer.

ricke (476) - Malme, SWEDEN - NOV 4, 2009
Black with a small black beige head that quickly settles into a fine ring of lacings. Not an overly powerful smell, but still with a pleasant character of roasted malts and delightful fruity notes. Quite a lot of coffee. Hints of chocolate and vanilla. The taste is somewhat sweet with gently roasted malts and coffee to the fore. Fruits are more muted than in the smell. Some tannins. Notes of chocolate. The finish is somewhat bitter with a faint salty note of licorice, and a hint of wood. The alcohol provides a nice warming sensation, but not much to the flavors. All in all, quite tasty and balanced nut not overly powerful or complex. Full bodied with a velvety texture. Mild carbonation seems to fit the laid back character of the beer well. I think I was expecting more from this. Still a good beer, though. Its well composed, but it could use a bigger spectrum or aromas and flavors. Serving type: bottle (Copy of old Beer Advocate review)

Bottle courtesy of ogivlado who shared it with me and heavy (huge thanks!)
Poured an opaque black (very dark red possibly) body with a small brown head that went away slowly. A pungent, chewy almost sweet malty aroma wafted from the glass. Some roastiness and maybe some dry dust. A lighter roasty, sweetish malty taste, very nice, giving out nice light notes of chocolate and coffee. Not much alcohol, a balanced imperial stout, very nice.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - OCT 31, 2009
750ml bottle from Grant. Pours black with a small light brown head. Aroma of molasses chocolate, coffee and cinnamon. The flavor is bittersweet chocolate with lots of roasted bitterness and a light alcohol taste. Full body average carbonation and a thick smooth mouth feel. Overall a nice Imp Stout, just not sure its worth the Lost Abbey premium.

GandGKevin (934) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - OCT 31, 2009
2009 version. Pours pitch black with a small brown head. Aromas of roasted chocolate. Flavors of chocolate and molassas. Nice lingering finish with some palate cleansing carbonation. Alcohol is not noticable and very well integrated. Medium to full bodied mouthfeel. Overall a very excellent stout.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - OCT 31, 2009
Bottle courtesy of rallison, probably close to a year ago. Finally cracked open for Halloween. Pours thick and inky black with nearly two-finger mocha head. Nose is sweet, roasty, creamy, and nutty. Some licorice and soy as well as the more common chocolate and espresso notes. Perhaps a bit of oxidation on the nose. A bit harsh and astringent, but overall a lovely beer.

glennmastrange (2806) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - OCT 30, 2009
Bottle. Heavy malt aromas of toasted and strong coffee, moderate resin for the hops, and earth for the yeast, with prune and tar in the background. Head is small, creamy, brown with no lacing and is almost fully diminishing. Flavor starts moderately to heavily sweet and moderately acidic, then the extra long finish is moderately acidic and harshly bitter. Palate is medium to full, creamy, with a soft carbonation and a lightly astringent and dry finish. A powerful mouthfilling Imperial Stout. A little harsh in some spots, but wow is this good.

jamespgentry (22) - Washington, USA - OCT 27, 2009
Dark brown pour. Ho head. Nice smooth mouthfeel. Alcohol content is hidden very well, not too boozy or hot. Licorice, wood, and vanilla up front. Back end hits you with roasted coffee, chocolate, and a hint of brown sugar. All in all a very good stout, but not my favorite. I like my stouts a little more roasty, thats all.

WisconsinBeer (716) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - OCT 24, 2009
Pours a deep black color with a dark brown head. Flavor is roasted malty coffee deep chocolate and roasted malts. Hop profile on the back end is minimal. Full bodied and lingering. A solid well made stout.
