Lost Abbey Serpent's Stout (2017)

What the brewers say

“The taste is rich with deep roasted malts, cocoa, coffee, and a touch of vanilla balanced perfectly against the alcohol.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Lots of barrel with whiskey and vanilla. Dark chocolate malt, coffee, and rich malt. Everything is really intense.”

Flavor: “Massively rich and complex, tons of chocolate, caramel, oak, whiskey with a nice boozy finish that isn’t overly hot. The bitterness and alcoholic finish keep the sweetness in check, and the complex character lingers really well.”

Overall: “A really good huge, complex barrel-aged stout. Tons of stout richness that is accentuated by the spicy, boozy barrel character. Everything is nicely balanced and complex.”
