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.

Defreni (2845) - Husum, DENMARK - APR 30, 2009
UPDATED: JUL 4, 2012 Fad: Kulsort øl med en lille skumkrone. Duft af kaffe, chokolade og en lille smule lakrids. Humlen giver en fin fin bitterhed i en meget afbalanceret øl. Fantastisk. Re/ rate. Fantastisk p[ fad. Potentiel 5 hvis den er lige god en gang til.

Dedollewaitor (14648) - Odense, DENMARK - APR 29, 2009
75cl bottle at VV tasting, Odense. Pours pitch black with a creamy brown head. Nose is cocoa powder, roast, chocolate and vague hints of smoke. Very complex. Each element stand out on its own. Smooth, oily, vinous, sticky and full bodied. Liquorice and dark fruits. A very fine brew!

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 29, 2009
Bottled at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Black with a small pale brown head. Dense, roasty and fruity aroma of dark chocolate, prunes, figs, anise and and licorice. Full-bodied and chewy with notes of melting chocolate, figs, prunes, dark cherries, anise and black sweet coffee. Long chewy and anise-seeds. Dense a bit cloyingly sweet finish of dark chocolate, prunes, brown sugar. Definitely not worth the ridiculously high price tag....

Ljunkan (530) - NORWAY - APR 26, 2009
Bottle, thanks to Weine. Pours a black color with a nice beige head. Aroma is nice with lots of dark chocolate, liquorice, burnt malt, some tar and light fruitiness. Very nice flavour also with some roasted coffee notes, dark chocolate, liquorice and fruits. A bit dry with pretty light bitterness, more balanced, roasted and fruitier than some other american imperial stouts. Impressive full body, thick, creamy and smooth mouthfeel. Just another good one.

UPDATED: JAN 22, 2010 Bottle. Thanks Melissa. Incredible. Poured jet black with creamy chocolate brown head. Aroma is sweet roasted malts and coffee. Taste is really spectacular, roasted malt, mild coffee, dark chocolate. Soft creamy body, flavors are extremely balanced. Finishes with mild bitterness. Flawless!

Brigadier (3250) - Clevelandish, Ohio, USA - APR 21, 2009
750 ml bottle
Thanks to ckschubert for sending this a couple of months ago. With winter fading away and my cellar overstocked I have been looking for quality beers to clear. This one was an easy target. Finally pulling the trigger I was not disappointed in the least. This ranks right up there with Stone RIS and North Coast Old Rasputin as a West Coast imperial stout that is almost flawless.

Aroma / Appearance - The deep oak head was a great contrast for the black oily body which left sheets of clear lacing along the sides. Black coffee, anise, dark chocolate, oatmeal, and smoke complement a well rounded and robust experience.

Flavor / Palate - The taste is even better than the aroma. Near flawless in both thickness and complexity it holds a blend of coffee, bittersweet chocolate, smoke, anise, and rich malts. Deceptively drinkable even at 11% ABV I had no problems finishing this off in short order. I may have to get another one some day if I run across it while visiting the West Coast.

Very nice, soft and smooth. Well balanced.... Again: #20 - Amerikaner Blind-Smagning 01-Maj-2009 hos Papsoe. Bottle. (8/4/7/4/17).
