The history of the bible and religion is indeed the struggle of good vs. evil. Our Serpent’s 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.

Recent snow day offered the perfect chance to drink something new and toasty. Found this Serpent's Stout and decided to break my Lost Abbey virginity. Poured into a standard beer glass, enjoyed at leisure.

A: Poured thick with a pillowy head, a shroud of lacing while being drinked. Black as sin, no light coming through, just like my heart.

S: Dark chocolatey aroma, with hints of smoke from the depths of hell. Knew I would love this beer before even tasting it, living up to the temptation it claims.

T: Thick milky and smooth, with a strong presence of coffee and chocolate. The wonderfully bitter aftertaste left me wanting more, like a tempting woman defiling me and leaving for her next conquest.

O: Love it! I laughed, I cried, my sin nature lashed out and ensared me in a cosmic fall from grace. Totally worth it. Highly recommended for the lover of darkness.

750 ml bottle poured into The Lost Abbey teku glass this beer purchased February 14, 2015

A: Pitch black, no light coming through, nice creamy mocha fluffy head, lovely lacing, lots of tiny bubbles streaming up the glass's side, poured like oil out of the bottle, looks really good.

A: Right up front, big coffee dark chocolate aromas, picking up some slight dark fruit aromas, smells great.

T: Like the nose, big coffee dark chocolate flavors, getting some dark fruit flavors in the middle, finishes with a lingering coffee chocolate bitterness, tastes great.

M: Nice creamy medium mouthfeel, very fluffy, almost Belgian quad like, finishes with a really dry coffee like mouthfeel.

O: Very impressed. I've tasted about 4-5 Lost Abbey beers within the last month and all but one has impressed me. Serpent's Stout falls in this category. This is a big coffee, dark chocolate, dark fruit, dry finishing stout. Very drinkable for 11%. Definitely going to pick up a few bottles to cellar. My only complaint is that I wish Lost Abbey would package their beers in 4 or 6 packs.
