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.

On tap at Global Brew. Pours pitch black with a thick brown head. Smoke and burnt caramel aroma. Taste is thick rich and complex. There’s dark roast coffee, baker’s chocolate, blackstrap molasses, vanilla and sweet roasted malt. Bitterness is provided by the roasting malt. Love it!

75cl bottle shared with a friend. Pours deep black with a small brown head. Amazing aroma with notes of roasted malts, dark chocolate, molasses, a bit of burnt coffee and a small hint of alcohol. Flavour is off the hook, with notes of dark roasted malts, chocolate, honey. Mouthfeel is superb and has a long long aftertaste.

Inky evil incarnate though it may be, the taste is a dose of righteous divinity. Burrowing up from the onyx bowels of my glass (I know there is a bottom to it somewhere), potent aromatic punches of burnt wood and smoke, raisins, leather, charred toffee, vanilla, licorice, roasted malt and bitter dark chocolate seek to slay pedestrian senses. With a soft carbonation and excellent, oily mouthfeel, this abomination unto the the angels flexes a persevering bittersweetness as glorious tasting as its slick tan crown is looking. While this potion, by all rights, should be wreaking alcohol flavoured pandemonium, any boozy notes played are all palm-muted. Worthy of the disdaining gods, pair it with a blizzard for supreme indoor excellence of being.

Poured into a taster showing deep black with a finger of latte colored foam. Equal notes of soy sauce, toasted malts, caramel and cappuccino on the nose. The palate shows a full body, aggressive carbonation, black coffee with notes of roasted malts, slight coffee tartness and hints of smoke. The finish shows a strong espresso bitter finish and some spiciness from the carbonation. This is a BIG stout!

Draft. I can’t get any aroma b/c it’s allergy season. Lots of coffee. Lots and lots of thick coffee. More one note than I expected. Finish of baking chocolate.

Wow. Near black pour with dark tan head. The aroma is perfect. Vanilla and dark chocolate. Taste is smooth sweet vanilla, a bit of bitter dark chocolate and a bit of alcohol. Great beer.

Bottle. Pours a near black color with a fairly thick light brown head on there. Nose is nice and full with chocolate, roasty, and Belgian yeast notes to it. Taste is a bit sweet up front and has a dark roasty thick finish. Super smooth.

Bottle from 2009. Looks really, really good. Beer in the glass deep black, oily, almost no head. Heavy malty aroma. Starts intense malty, roasty, oily, notes of coffee and some liquorice. Finish with bitter background. Warming-malty. Strong, but not alcoholic. Really good beer!

Bottle at Beer Ditch. Pours black with red hues and dark brown head. Aroma is pretty vinous with some alcohol. Not that much more. Taste focuses on dark chocolate and the roasted malt, slightly vinous, well balanced bitterness and well balanced all in all. Full body, soft carbonation, smooth.
Solid Imperial Stout.
