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.

Bottle, 2009 vintage. Thanks ahalloin! Pours an opaque black with thin espresso head. Aroma is licorice and chocolate milk. Flavor is roasted malt and cocoa with a creamy mouthfeel - wow. Alcohol is barely present. A real treat. From notes 2/15/10.

Linnet (1091) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - MAY 10, 2014
Coffee, cocoa, roastiness, licorice, alcohol, black colour, medium Brown head, lacing. Big bite, mid-sweet, heavy saltiness, ABV evident.fullbodied, small lively bubbles, salty, roasty, bitter and warming finish. Awesome quality, but not as mindblowingly great as I’ve come to expect from this brewery.

Clownoisseur (199) - Buchanan, Michigan, USA - MAY 1, 2014
On tap at Lost Abbey/Port Brewing. Pour was pitch black with a thin brown head. Very fine carbonation on the glass. Aromas of dark chocolate, roasted malt, some booze and a dry earthiness. Taste is rich and the feel is like velvet. Loads of chocolates with dark fruits and brown sugar. The hops/booze provide a counter-balance to the initial sweetness to round out the edges. Very smooth stout.

Bottle. Pour is black with a finger-wide tan head. Aroma and flavor of tobacco, cocoa, licorice, dark roasted coffee, and slight vanilla, One of the first beers I’ve had from LA that isn’t oxidized, so that’s good.

BMMillsy (1283) - 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 (2001) - 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.

750. Jet black pour, thick chocolate ice cream head, good lacing. Smell is coffee, dark chocolate, pepper and citrus. Taste is full of bakers chocolate, caramel, hints of coffee, pepper and orange. Great Belgian stout!
