The Lost Abbey Serpents Stout
750mL brown bottle caged and corked
A: poured into a snifter. The beer pours a pitch black color, with a massive fluffy tan head that has outstanding retention, and leads to phenomenal lacing.
S: wonderful aroma of toasted grains. I get a lot of sweet dark malts, leading to figs, molasses, coffee, and a strong chocolate aroma. A hint of sourness, like a belgian stout.
T: this is absolutely wonderful. a lot more rich than I expected. tons of coffee, chocolate, and raisins. not overly sweet though. I get almost a milk chocolate in the finish.
M: great carbonation level. a little heavy, but expected for the style. the palate is amazing, and the flavors coat the entire mouth.
D: if I was stuck on a deserted island....this is one of those beer I can drink forever. the 11% abv was delightful and completely hidden.

The aroma has big chocolate and notes of coffee.
The flavor follows of chewy chocolate, brownie, some vanilla, a big roasted coffee with a medium plus hop bitterness on the finish.
There's a big chewy mouthfeel with lots of carbonation.
Alcohol is extremely well hidden. Such an incredible stout.

Watching the pour, I thought the beer was a little flat, but the bubbles were latent and really exploded when the glass was nearly full. Ended up with a two finger head that settled into a dome. Deep dark brown where no light shall pass. Leaves a web of lace.
I smell Cocoa Puffs and Honey Graham Crackers. Attractive and semisweet.
Starts off like deeply toasted biscuits and ends like dark powdered cocoa. Chewy body. No notable alcohol warmth. Long aftertaste of burnt toast and black coffee.
Serving type: on-tap
