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 The Blind Lady in San Diego. Brown head. Seriously, brown. Nose is serious malt. Some coffee, toffee, and soy sauce. Dark fruit too. Thick and sharp in the mouth. Again, dark fruit, roasted malt and coffee. Thick and gooey. Good stuff.

Bottle. Pours a dark opaque black color with a huge brown head. head receeds to leave a small layer. nose is chocolate and almost a hint of mint it seems. chalky and dry. palate is oily with a bitter finish. chocolate dominates the flavors, some light pruney dark fruit notes appear. but the chocolate dominates, not in a bad way, it is good, just searching for some other flavors and am failing. it is real good though.

HonkeyBra (3730) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - FEB 27, 2009
750 ml bottle from Mreusch. Thanks man! Black pour with a tan, bubbly head. Chocolate and licorice aroma. Flavor is sweet and bitter, lots of dark fruit and dark chocolate. Really nice, medium bitterness. Thick mouthfeel with a nice carbonation. Lots of dark, bitter chocolate in the finish. Very nice beer, with no detectable alcohol.

Sample @ EBF ’09. Pours a thick black with a creamy brown head. Aroma is roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, and licorice. Taste is licorice, dark fruit, and roasted malt, with a nice bitter finish that hides the alcohol very well. I like it; I like it a lot.

brokephibroke (301) - Mead, Colorado, USA - FEB 22, 2009
Thick black pour with a deep brown creamy head. Licorice, coffee and malt aroma. Thick coating mouth with a licorice and sweet / tangy finish. Coffee lingers on and on. Further sipping brings the bitterness up front. I like this stout, but then again, I like alot of imperials and this is near the top.

Bottle at the Lost Abbey dinner. Pours opaque black with a small milk chocolate head. Aroma of dark roasted malt, bitter baking chocolate, and some coffee. Very similar flavour plus some anise and a little caramel. Creamy mouthfeel and could not find the 11 ABV.

Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - FEB 20, 2009
On tap at the Monk’s Kettle in San Fran. Pitch black pour with a one finger beige head. Big coffee and chocolate aroma, kind of smells like ice cream actually. Does an excellent job of masking its alcohol under a thick milk shake like mouth with huge chocolate flavor and mild backbeats of coffee and licorice. Not the most complex beer I’ve ever tasted, but a key example in why not all beer NEEDS to be complex.

Draught at City Beers, SF Black with a beige head. Very dark roasted; Chocolate and some mussels. Slightly sourish. Loads of chocolate and warming alcohol in the flavour. Soft and smooth and very pleasant.
