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.

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.

The aroma was rich with ferm. dark fruit, espresso, roast, smoke, cocoa, and plums. The beer poured an opaque color with thick lasting brown head and light lace. The flavor was complex and rich with espresso, cocoa, smoke, roast, and dark fruit. The mouthfeel was full bodied and good carbonation.

750, corked and baled. Thanks, SuzyGreenberg! Pours opaque, nearly black with a lacy tan head. Creamy full body, heavy on the chewiness, light on the carbonation. The aroma and taste are sweet and full of goodness: Coffee, chocolate, licorice, brown sugar, figs, nuts, molasses. This is one tasty beer!

thickfreakness (132) - AUSTIN, Texas, USA - JUL 2, 2008
Thanks to med. This pours a dark brown/black with a dense mocha colored head that lasts for some time but leaves little lacing on the glass. It smells of heavily of burnt/roasted malts, followed by dark fruits, chocolate, and booze. Taste follows from smell with plenty of roastiness and chocolate and a warming, bitter, drying finish. Full bodied and easy going down.

GregClow (2857) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 1, 2008
Bottle (750ml) shared at ’Biegaman’s Second Annual Saison Tasting’ -- courtesy of grub. Deep brown-black with a small tan head. Aroma of hazelnut, roasted malt and dried cocoa. Full bodied, very nice mouthfeel. Flavour is sweet and malty to start, with a bit of fruitiness, followed by some tartness and yeast, and a warm, drying finish. Interesting and quite good.

thedm (4927) - Fort Wayne, USA - JUN 26, 2008
This corked and caged bottled brew from a rating party poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized dark brown colored long lasting bubbles that left behind a fair lacing and an opaque dark brown colored body with no visible carbonation. The aroma was mildly vinous with hop malt dark malt and brown malt notes. The mouth feel was tingly and crisp. The flavor contained notes of crisp hops coffee and dark malts.

bsierra (213) - Vista, California, USA - JUN 25, 2008
Had on tap at the San Diego Fair’s beer festival. Pours black as night with aromas of dark chocolate, roast, coffee, sweet vanilla. Taste starts out super rich and sweet, and then on the end you get a nice roasty, bitter kick ass stout. Insane and very tasty~

polomagnifico (1202) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - JUN 19, 2008
bottle courtesy of BOLTZ7555, thanks Jason! Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, dark dried fruit, molasses, and wood. Just fantastic. Black hue with an above average sized brown foamy head that left good lace. Flavor is sweet and roasty with espresso, chocolate and finishes a little sour and cloying. Palate is very full bodied and lively. Lingering aftertaste and cloying mouth feel. A fantastic brew that smells and looks fantastic. It does loose points on palate and finish but not that much. Too carbonated and a little too sour and cloying to be perfect but this one is close. I thought for sure it was going to be a 5 out of 5 after I had poured it and smelled it.

Pours black into a snifter. Fluffy mocha head with excellent retention. Boozy chocolate and sweet espresso aromas. Creamy and boozy with a smoked chocolate from front-to-back.

CheesedMan (555) - Saint Cloud, Florida, USA - JUN 15, 2008
An almost perfectly black color, only the smallest hints of brown seem to peak through. Aroma is hugely roasted, with some dried fruits coming along. Some chocolate notes on the finish.
