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.

Bottle (750 ml). Bottled on 12/2011, so 3+ years old now. Split 5-ways with the Québec crew.

Appearance: Pitch black with a huge mostly lasting thick brown head and good lacing.

Aroma: Coffee, roasted malt, molasses, ashes, smoke, chocolate, light vegetal notes, light fruitiness and hints of black liquorice.

Taste: Coffee and roasted malt at first followed by a big molasses presence, ashes, smoke, light fruitiness and light bitterness. There’s also an acidity impression from the roasted malts. Sweetness level is moderate for the style.

Palate: Medium to full body. Medium carbonation. Creamy and fluffy mouthfeel. Really smooth. Ashy and roasty finish.

Overall: Good balance despite the ashes being a little too present for my liking. I suspect that the aging toned down everything except the smokey/ashy presence. Other than that, it was a really smooth RIS, but still quite complex and tasty. Alcohol is well hidden/integrated. It’s "drinkable" for the style. It held up really well for a 3+ years RIS.

On the cold weather Pgh tour of winter 2015 spring at bocktown robinson, part 2. This is fricken hilarious. On the cold weather Pgh tour of winter 2015 spring at bocktown robinson, part 2. this is a rther smooth stout that you’d never think is an impy stout till the end. A really black beer. Has a head that provides for nice lacing. No real discernible aroma. Comes across rather sterile on the nose. At first it is rather mild and creamy then they git more and more alky like. Yes, 11%b you’d never know. One of the smoothest impy stouts above 10% I ever tasted. Yes rather reserved for a big alky impy stout.

Pours dark black with a nice bit of lacing. Smells of chocolate and coffee with a strong alcohol finish. Tastes rich and chocolatey with quite a smooth finish. Almost leaves a chalky residue in the mouth.....that without, would be a higher palate score.

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.
