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.

j12601 (9549) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAY 12, 2009
Bottle at the “Drink for Charity” event at Rattle & Hum. I brought one and there were 2 others, so I’m not sure whose bottle it was. Pours a dark black with a thin tan head. Chocolate, and plums on the nose. Thin to medium bodied with a touch of alcohol before a pile of roast comes through. Finishes with more roast, plums, chocolate, and a little licorice and wintergreen.

dunkpigen (379) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAY 12, 2009
Pours deep brown almost black with a creamy brown head. Aroma of chocolate and toffee and roasted malts. Flavour is chocolate, toffee, roasted malts with some hoppy dryness. Very creamy, full bodied with a nice long dry aftertaste to balance the sweetness from the toffee.

Bottle, bought @ Ølbutikken, Cph.
[my 4,700th rating]
Pours very deep brown, almost black. Impressive, creamy, brown head. Great duration and it leaves some fine lacings. Powerful and dry aroma, lots of coffee, roasted malts, bready and some grassy hops. Great creamy mouthfeel, lowish carbonation. Flavour has chocolate, some cold coffee (minus the bitterness), mild viniousness, quite sweet; especially in the finish. Aftertaste has more bitterness with some dark chocolate and warming viniousness. Good.

baggio (333) - norrtälje, SWEDEN - MAY 12, 2009
Bottled@Oliver Twist. Apperance: Very dark-brownish with a generous head. Aroma: Lots of malt, Caramel, Ripe fruit, Cocoa and hints of yeast. Flavor: Chocolate, Coffee, Sugar, Belgian yeast and dark bread. Palate: Much like a belgian stout in character with excessive sweetness at the end. Good brew but too sweet for my palate.

750 ml bottle thanks to Sparky27. Pours a pure black color with a small brown color. The aroma is rich; sweet dark fruits, roasted malts and light caramel and molasses. The flavor is rich; lots of earthy roasted malts, caramel, dark fruits, cocoa, yeast, liquorish, light chocolates and hops in the finish. Very drinkable, a 750 goes do oh so well. Very nice.

Ungstrup (34023) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 10, 2009
Bottled. A black beer with a brown head. The aroma is sweet with notes of malt, both sweet and roasted, and bread, as well as a slight hint of something burnt. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, alcohol, roasted bread, and coffee as well as light notes of chocolate, leading to a dry roasted finish. It also has a light acidity from the roasted malt.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - MAY 9, 2009
UPDATED: JUL 10, 2010 750 mL. Pours an opaque black with a decent dark brown head. Okay lacing and retention. Aroma of roasted malt, dark chocolate, vanilla, oak, molasses, brown sugar, black licorice, heavy whipping cream. Taste is amazingly smooth with dark chocolate, raw cocoa, molasses, vanilla ice cream, espresso, black currant, and loads of whipped cream. Bitter, dry, raw cocoa finish with some sort of warming but no spicy alcohol bite. Easiest 11% I can imagine. Completely perfect in every way. 8/4/9/5/17=4.3

ReRate: 7/10/2010. Still kicking ass, massive lacing everywhere just makes this look unreal. Aroma has lots of lavender, herbals, licorice. Taste is full of cedar, resinous wood, spicy wood. Full-bodied. Makes other imperial stouts look stupid. 8/5/9/5/16=4.3
