The Lost Abbey Serpent's Stout
What the brewers say
"Roasty and chocolate notes throughout ... a big beer that balances with kiss of sweetness."
What our panel thought
"Sweet, chocolate-cake aroma; fresh pears, vanilla, bread crust. Flavor is more in the classic zone. Lasting impression of liquor-filled chocolate."
What our editors thought
"Hops on dark roast—richly layered, intense nose. The sip is big dark cacao polished with a smooth, creamy sheen—bold, lively. Dark chocolate deep into the finish."
