Poured from a 25 oz bomber into a tulip on 05.31.14.

A: 3 finger bubbly tan head which recedes quickly. Midnight black body with no red.

S: Cocoa powder, dark fruit, and licorice.

T: Fig, chocolate, raisin, cherry, and cinnamon toast dominate. Woodiness and a cabernet sauvignon quality are more subtle.

M: Creamy. Very chewy.

O: This was very complex and rich. There was some alcohol burn on the back end. The woodiness was not overwhelming. This was an excellent stout.

Rating: A

One of my top 5 imperial stouts. Goose Island, Founders, Deschutes, the Serpent's and then the placeholder which fits in all the rarer stouts that can't really quantify for lists because they're impossible to get. This Lost Abbey is doing a great job at my only of the beer categories (I'm allergic to most beers but stouts get by passably). My wife's a completely different catagory of beer drinker than me and she swears by Lost Abbey's other offerings as much as I like this stout. Serpent's Tail warms well, I want it warm enough so the flavors expand horizontally and beneath the tongue... at these warmer temperatures, the viscera of the beer really gets turned inside out: the smokiness moves your intestines, you feel fumigations of sweet fruits and the strong alcohol burn. Very rich stout with mellow carbonation. Drink it slowly enough to last a three hour computer session and the flavors keep on unfolding as the imperial burn intensifies. One time I was having one of their bottles and my wife kissed me and she thought I'd been smoking and drinking odd brews with shamans in Peru because of my breath. That's how deep the fermentation goes. Keep it up Lost Abbey.
