a-like how nestlie's cocoa mix would look if there was a two inch stack of brownies floating on top of it!!!
s- up front cocoa, rich ground coffee rinds, muted anise, and toffee.
t- very lasting, coating and soothing brew. 11% barely rears its head, more or less after a few sips in. massive amounts of chocolate in this one. i love beers like this.
m- lighter than i expected, but has some nice grainy textures to it from the crystal malt.
d- outstanding. i like how easily this goes down.

On tap at the brewery in San Marcos.
Pours black with a short-lived head that leaves little lacing.
Aroma: moderately strong and dominated by dark-roasted malts.
Flavor: more funky and less fruity than the aroma, but not challenging to drink. Lightly bitter finish.
Feel: medium body; medium-light carbonation.
O: good, not great. High ABV is too obvious.

This stout was served on tap into a 10oz tulip glass. The head on this beer looked impressive. The beige lacing was sticky, fluffy, and good looking. The smell of this stout was a balance of roasted malt, bitter/dark chocolate, molasses, and something pungent. This stout tastes roasted, sour, and chocolatey, with a weak boozy ending/aftertaste. Mouthfeel = medium/smooth/dry.
Overall, I was not very impressed. When I read Serpent's Stout, I started thinking of something slithery, poisonous, and big. This brew's name mislead me. If it was named The Lost Abbey Snake Stout, I probably wouldn't be as disappointed. As for being a serpent, :(
