COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The history of the bible and religion is indeed the struggle of good vs. evil. Our Serpentís 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.

UPDATED: APR 17, 2008 Bottle. Poured a really nice deep black body with nice head. Aroma is roast, chocolate. Flavor is bitter sweet chocolate, coffee roast, and a sweet malty taste. The mouthfeel lasts forever! This is damn good young and look forward to trying it aged.

Black as night on color with a nice looking mocha head. Smells of chocolate, coffee, and dark roasted malts. Taste is sweet with chocolate, malts, and roastiness. Good beer.

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - APR 15, 2008
Bottle thanks to Bu11zeye. Poured black with rich tan head with good retention. Aroma of dark roast, alcohol spice, and slight, slight floral hops. Flavor is strong, sweet with large profile of dark roast, slight alcohol, and slight bitter. Medium carbonation with full body. Great stout!

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - APR 15, 2008
Pour is black with a giant never subsiding head...it took me like 5 minutes to pour it...initially smell is roasty and alcoholic...chocolate, yeast, and coffee...taste is very roasty and smooth with tons of toasted rye and pumperknickel flavors...lots of dark chocolate too...a nice dark chocolate bittersweet flavor slowly dominates and rounds out the finish...good indeed!

aracauna (3084) - Georgia, USA - APR 15, 2008
Pours a perfect black with a dark tan head that is larger than expected. This is one of the more heavily carbonated imperial stouts Iíve ever had. The flavor is very sweet, a bit of vanilla. Plenty of chocolate. Sticky.

Bockyhorsey (2610) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - APR 15, 2008
Sampled at an AJís tasting and at hellbillyís gathering bottle courtesy of Shyam. Black body with tan head. Aroma amd flavor are virtually the same with oak wood and vanilla along with a thick creamy body texture. Good example of an impy stout.

jarspag (601) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 14, 2008
Bottle shared w/ Simon. Bad ass, pitch black pour - looks rugged. Aromas of dark chocolate, roast, coffee, sweet vanilla. Flavor begins rich and sweet and seconds after swallowing transition into a dry, roasty, bitter bomb of a stout. Just fantastic. For whatever reason, my expectations were fairly mild before cracking this...but was surprisingly blown away. This is just really, really good...a new go-to.

mjg74 (2492) - La Mesa, California, USA - APR 14, 2008
Bottle from Bev4Less. Mine goes to 11%. Black in color upon pouring with a dark brown foamy head. Roasty malt aromas. A little sweetness. Somewhat bitter with a little black licorice. Somewhat sweet and roasty up front. High carbonation. Some chocolate. Not all that bitter. Alcohol is very well hidden. Enjoyable impy.

Sparky (2243) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - APR 14, 2008
Sampled a few times, plus had a 750ml on my own recently. Pours an oily black with a tan head. Lots of carbonation for the style. Nose is coffee, cocoa and alcohol. Palate is very bubbly with roasted coffee, dark chocolate and a nice hop bite in the finish. Another winner from LA.

steview (1019) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 12, 2008
deeelicious! great, sweet cocoa aroma; creamy with of course chocolate, a bit of bitterness and roasted malts that is a complement and contrast to the aroma, and a bit of raisin or grape because of the yeast or hops i assume... nice, big, and dark; and not quite evil because itís so damn good! (i would give more, but i think this just hits "imperial" status due to ABV, not due to extreme malts, roasted..., etc.)
