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.

Jblauvs (1358) - Chester, Vermont, USA - OCT 5, 2009
Dark obsidian pour with almost no head, just a tan ring around the glass that laces well and leaves nice boozey little legs as i sip it down. Aroma is powdered cocoa, some slight roast, some creamy notes. Flavor is bold, Mouthfeel is really creamy. Dark chocolate, licorice up front, some earthy, dark fruit notes in the center and a fantastic roasty, dry finish. Deep, dark beer by Lost Abbey, very decadent.

RSRIZZO (1984) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - SEP 27, 2009
Bottle courtesy of BeerandBlues2 at a blind Imperial Stout tasting at his house on 9/22/09. Color is black with fair carbonation and just a brown ring of a head. Aroma is a lightly sweet roasted scent with alcohol. It has a bold medium body with a rich mouth feel. Finish is a light fruit flavor that comes out mildly sweet backed by a nice roasted bitterness and slightly dry after taste. Overall its a very good brew and seemed to have much better carbonation then some of the previous Lost Abbey brews I have had.

corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 27, 2009
Pours pitch black and completely opaque with not even the slightest of mahogany edges when held to a light source and HUGE frothy, pillowy coffee colored head that has excellent retention, only slowly fading into a thick cap that lasts throughout, leaving large chunks of lacing. Roasted malt aroma with hints of coffee, dark chocolate, licorice, anise, spicy pepper, dark fruits and a decent amount of earthy hops. Very roasted full body with a lot of dark chocolate maltiness, spicy pepper and anise, coffee, toffee, oatmeal, caramel malt and a nice bitter hop finish. Heavily carbonated up front with a very roasty dark maltiness, followed by a sweet caramel and chocolate body with a very bitter dry hoppy finish. Recommended.

DaMenace123 (253) - Houston, Texas, USA - SEP 16, 2009
This is possibly the thickest beer I have ever had. Thick black pour. Strong flavor of roasted malts but balanced with a little bitterness and dark fruit flavor. Very good.

I believe I scored this bottle via Secret Santa. Thank you Saint Nick! 750ml corked and caged bottle pours a fairly viscous but completely opaque with a lacing, tan head that had plenty of tight bubbles. Aroma heavy on the chocolate, coffee, nuts, raisns, cherries, toasted grains, bread. Flavor is very nice, lots of toast and coffee, nuts, dark chocolate. The flavor also shows off some dark pitted fruits and an earthiness that compliments everything well. Overall mouthfeel is nice, slightly thick, mellow with some lingering sweetness, a little lingering bitterness from the toasted grains with only a faint heat in the throat at the very very end. Overall, very well balanced, and very drinkable for a beer thats 11% ABV. Dare I say, it lacks the one unique aspect that separates the great Imperial Stouts from the good ones. This is a very good one.

TheAlum (7164) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - SEP 13, 2009
750 ml bottle from Binnys (Orland Park, IL) shared with some friends. Pours a nice pitchblack opaque pour, a decent dark brown head that dies to a film and laces somewhat. Aromas are a nice chocolate, sweet and dark meet, a creamy sweetness meet a good dark roasty malts, coffee, light bitterness mixes with a good roasty feel, faint soy sauce. Initial is a thick syrupy body, a good roasty and chocolate appeal, some bitter and sweet chocolate mix with a deeper toasted roasted maltiness. Light bitterness, solid dose of burnt and bitter coffee. A thick beer on the palate, sticks well. Faint soy, good overall Imperial Stout

skortila (5735) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - SEP 9, 2009
Bottled. The aroma has chocolate, some coffee, dark fruits. Pitch black coloured beer with a brown head. The taste is sweet, bitter and has chocolate, coffee and some fruity tones. It is quite creamy, full bodied and overwhelming enjoyable. :-)
