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.

TimE (4955) - Tokyo, JAPAN - SEP 6, 2009
Dark chocolate, coffee nose. Big, thick mouth, coffee, dark chocolate, dark fruit, dark cherries. Big flavors all around, but not overly complex. Lingering dark chocolate finish. Well made, but just can’t get to the upper crust of Impys.

From a bottle poured black with no head. Malt flavor of coffe and choclate, and a lasting finish.

drpimento (3076) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 4, 2009
Shazam! One fine beer. Rich. Got this bottle at Sam’s in Chicago a few months ago. Poured with a nice tan head and some lace. Color is an opaque brown almost black.... hell, maybe it is black. Splitting pubic hairs. Aroma is divine: chocolate, yeast, burnt malt, toffee, and a hint of fruit. Flavor is all a that and more. Add a touch of black walnut and french roast coffee. Finsih is surprisingly mild and easy. Body is great with fine carbonation. Killer beer.

DonMagi (5594) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 4, 2009
Bottle thanks to duff had in the rake on grants leaving night. Alround rating: Huge roastyness, big burnt tar character, cloying and one dimentional, very unclean.

t4h2c0 (96) - seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 1, 2009
pours dark black with creamy brown head. smells of dark malts and coffee/chocolate. strong flavor and palate, very creamy, smooth and velvety. Strong chocolate taste with a slight alcohol burn, you can taste to alcohol in this one, a great well balanced imperial stout.

While the game we were watching while consuming this bottle was extremely boring, this bottle was not any way. A huge beer in every way possible, and it delivered. The beer pours out an immensly dark body, black as black can get, with a tight, thick 1" creamy light brown head which lasted the entire length of my pint. Aroma consists of dark chocolate, black licorice, scorched sugar, chocolate covered raisins and alcohol. Flavor really pulls it all together with the chocolate notes, bitter coffee, alcohol, dark fruits, vanilla and black walnuts. Body is smooth, creamy and coating. It felt like my teeth were fitted with a tuxedo by the worlds greatest tailor. Just a really great, great beer. Really one of the better stouts I’ve had lately.

Travlr (21169) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 23, 2009
Very very dark. Scant tanned brown head. Aroma of milk chocolate. Flavor of burnt Starbuck’s latte mocha frappacino. Just kidding. But it does have more coffee in the flavor than in the aroma. Slight bitter finish. Very nicely complex, great example of the style.

xmarcnolanx (929) - Kirkwood, Missouri, USA - AUG 22, 2009
Aroma is creamy, dense chocolate-alcohol sourness, and a bit of a hop bite. Taset is sweet chocolate, smooth chocolate-port, some ethanol and hops. Mouthfeel is a bit alcoholic, thin for the aroma. Stings a touch. Lots of alcohol in this. Totally doesn’t hide it. Molasses-puff colored head that rings the glass but does not develop legs, nor sticks around. Overall, decent, but not amazing.

JMerritt (1940) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - AUG 18, 2009
Bottled, shared with Narnad. Black with a small brown head. Sweet nose, light roast with alcohol - aroma is rather faint overall. Chewy malt flavor, very sugary with a dry, roasty and mildly bitter finish. Alcohol noticeable in finish. I got hints of something green and herbally in there as well (spearmint?). Solid.

Embrouille (2835) - SWITZERLAND - AUG 18, 2009
Bottled. Pitch black with a small deep brown head. A lot of burnt caramel, candied fruits, plum, cocoa powder, vanilla, blue cheese, brown sugar and strong coffee in both nose and taste. Subtle carbonation. Alcoholic and syrupy. Strong bitterness. Warming on the swallow. Sweet. Not much lacework. Black chocolate, cocoa powder, strong coffee, vanilla and alcohol in the finish. Powerful. Reminiscent of Stone Imperial Stout.
