The Lost Abbey Serpent’s Stout

For the most part, The Lost Abbey just kicks ass.  We had a bit of a run in with the 10 commandments, but who really hasn’t… seriously.  Anyhow, I was super excited to see  The Lost Abbey Serpent’s Stout come in at Malt & Vine the other day, so absolutely had to pick it up. 

I decided to enjoy it tonight along with catching up on my spring TV… The Big Bang Theory, How I met your mother, Rules of Engagement, American Idol, and America’s Next Top Model… sad, i know, but gotta love DVR.  Anyhow… this one was primed and ready to go so I jumped in.

It definitely pours a dark, dark elixir with a muddy brown head… looks really good in the glass, you can tell it is going to sit dark and thick.  The nose comes through with roasted malt and is a bit sweet in a good way… The high ABV (10.5%) is definitely there but not obnoxious.   The taste is dark and malty with chocolate undertones… no coffee for me, but definite roasted chocolate.  Silky smooth on the tip of the tongue with a finish that is simple but lasting.

Overall a solid offering from The Abbey and one that I would buy again and recommend to good friends. 🙂

    I agree with your review. Good stuff but not killer. Btw, do you get Mikkeller up there?

    Because if you don’t, I should send you some. They are a pretty interesting Danish brewer doing some cool stuff.
