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.

From 750 ml bottle, shared by Stine, pours a near opaque dark brown brew with an average sized beige head that slowly dissipates with some spotty lacing and a beige ring. Aroma of roasted dark malts, some dark chocolate, black licorice and some raisin. Taste is full bodied, light carbonated with flavors of dark pitted fruits, roasted dark malt, chocolate, and a touch of cream. Finish has a nice roasted dark malt, chocolate and a touch of vanilla aftertaste that slowly disappears. Nice treat!

Many thanks to Stine for bringing this one in. Black color with a meidum head. Big chocolate and milk aroma. Lots of sweet malt and pounds of roasted barley flavor. Dried milk. A little metallic towards the end. Finishes with a dry pine hop. I’d sin for it.

Snifter. Got home from work late and didn’t feel like cooking, so I ’ate’ this guy for dinnner. Pours tar black with huge two finger brown head. Aroma is powerful, and noticable upon uncorking. Plum, raisin, licorice, molasses and of course loads of roasty malt give this brew quite the aromatic qualities. Flavor is roasty with lots of dark fruit evident. Hop character pokes in there quite a lot as well, but the bitterness if just the right amount to balance the chocolate and molasses sweetness of the malt. Vanilla and alcohol poke through as well, but are wholly welcome. Palate is rich, but not overly so. Not quite as viscous or syrupy as many other examples of the style- a tad too thin. Aftertaste is sweet malt with a slight hop bitterness. Where this outstanding brew shines is its intense flavors and aroma- a well crafted brew indeed.

750 ml bottle poured into tulip glass at the Drafting Room, Spring House, PA. Quite good, but what else do you expect from Tomme? Had this today, the hottest and most humid day of the year, so it packed a heck of a wallop. Beautiful dark brown pour with thick foamy head. Definitely syrupy in texture but smooth going down. Reminds me a lot of JP’s Madrugada Obscura, but with higher alcohol which is very apparent. Doesn’t have JP’s mustiness but more of a straight-up stout. Definite recommend!

BlackDonald (1126) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 16, 2008
Syrupy black pour, with a tall brown frothy head that fades slowly leaving behind beautiufl tan lacing. Silky milk chocolate nose and malted maltballs. Nutty hazelnuts, chocolate milk, roasted coffee and toasty hints of caramel and butter pecan. Finishes with a toffee honey sweetness and is reminiscent of ice cream. This is one of the best stouts I have ever tried. Thanks Bryan!

Beerman6686 (4370) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 13, 2008
UPDATED: FEB 6, 2009 Poured a dark black color with a huge almost too big brown head. Aroma was very complex with hints of chocolate, coffee, fig, nuts, and some vanilla. Flavor was deep and roasted but also sweetened by the chocolate and molasses flavors. Excellent stout.

Tweety (377) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 10, 2008
750 ml bottle. Pours black with a nice big very dark tan head. Aroma has more alcohol in it than even most big stouts that I’ve had, with a lot of chocolate and some roast. Flavor is like a nice bitter dark chocolate, very nice. There’s a little bit more acidity to it than I’d prefer, but all-told VERY tasty.

1FastSTi (3336) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 9, 2008
Pours to a viscous black body with a tall foamy dark brown head and nice lacing. The aroma is grainy, almost organic aroma of sweet barley and black malts. Chocolate, dark fruits, prunes, roasted malts, yeasty like Darklord. Very Dark Lord-esque aroma. Extremely rich taste. Slight oats up front that’s immediately masked by a strong black patent, rich chocolate, dark malts, dark milk chocolate, and yeasty dark fruits. Sweet roasty mouthfeel. Warming and acetic.

DavidP (1747) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 8, 2008
Viscous black body under a huge tan head. Roasty dark chocolate and raisin aroma. The flavor starts with a kick of creamy oatmeal and is then replaced by acidic roast, chocolate, and dark fruits. A good I.S. but it’s marred by too-high carbonation. Nice oatmeal element however.

Soonah (1120) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - JUL 7, 2008
The pour was very attractive. Dark, semi-viscous and a brown head that was more ample than I expected. Moderate lacing. The aroma was lots of chocolate with sweet grass and light floral hops as well. Light roasted coffee and smoke in the background. The flavor was chocolate, sweet grass, floral hops and not much in the coffee, roasty, cedary department. Too sweet to be truly great. Nice chewy mouthfeel.
