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.

Pailhead (6403) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - JUN 18, 2009
Bottle: The aroma has lots of black licorice, strong chocolate, plum, and a hint of roasted coffee. It pours a dark brown with no transparency and a small brown head that leaves behind some thin webbed lacing behind. The flavors starts with moderate chocolate and some light black licorice. There is some plum fruitiness in the middle. The finish has some roasted coffee and dark chocolate. Medium-full bodied with mild carbonation and a slick mouthfeel.

daleharshman (1042) - Escondido, California, USA - JUN 9, 2009
Growler fill from brewery. Pours an opaque dark brown, basically black with a thin head of delicious-looking chocolate colored head. Sweet yet mellow aroma of roasted malts with hints of chocolate. Roasty and somewhat sweet taste of good bittersweet chocolate, light roasted coffee, and licorice. The alcohol presence is there, but is neither overpowering nor unpleasant. Mouthfeel is a bit "lighter" than some other notable beers in this style.

msante79 (2224) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - JUN 9, 2009
750ml bottle thanks to brewboy1. Pour black with dark tan head. Aroma is heavy with roasted malt, chocolate and some coffee. Flavor is again heavy with roasted malt. Nice balance of chocolate, coffee, licorice and some dark fruits. Bit of booze in the finish. Nice mouthfeel and is a little dry due to all the roasted malt. Nice solid stout. Have another bottle in the cellar that I will let age a little.
