COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

BMMillsy (1153) - Florida, USA - APR 23, 2014
2013 Vintage corked and caged 750 ml bottle grabbed off the shelves on my visit to Hoboken. Pours pitch black with a massive dark brown head that lingers a good while. Big chocolate and roast aromas, some dark fruits, and some smoke and char. Flavor is big smoke and char, more char, roastC some chocolate covered raisins, then a bitter smokey finish. Not what I was expecting but a nice surprise. Medium bodied with low plus carbonation. Sweetens up as I go. Not bad.

ajnepple (1689) - Clear Creek, Colorado, USA - APR 21, 2014
750 ml bottled 4 months ago, purchased at Applejack, and poured into a snifter at home. Black, opaque appearance with a big bubbly brown head, slowly diminishing, leaving light lacing. Aroma of roasted malts, licorice, dark chocolate, molasses, oak, mild earthy hops, dark fruits, light coffee and light vanilla. Similar flavor, big, rich and roasted, malty, dark, earthy, caramel, toffee, light alcohol (bourbon, red wine), mildly bitter, lightly fruity and lightly salty. Full body, creamy, lush, chewy, thick and pretty smooth with a lingering finish. Overall, a pretty damn good sipper. Side by side with Bell’s Expedition.
