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.

yespr (30765) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - APR 2, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2009 75 cL bottle. Pours dark brown to black with a small chocolate tan head. Roasted malt, coffee and mild chocolate acidic and dry aroma. Dry and hard roasted malt flavoured with an extreme bitter chocolate note leading to a hard roasted malt acidic note as the dominant impression. Yet smooth and dense chocolate and malt flavoured finish. Powerful and simplistic, I lack some depth here - but flawless.8-4-8-4-15=3.9

omhper (19237) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 19, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 27, 2008 Bottled, thanks Crosling! Very black, majestic brownish head. Lots of chocolate, some coffee and tar. Sweet and concentrated. A bit of yeasty spritzyness gives it more life and a bit of Belgian air. The malt structure is soft and mild completely edgeless, which separates it from the bulk of Imperial stouts. Finishes with cocoa powder bitterness.

Opaque black beer, thick tan head. Rich and remarkably soft in the mouth. Light and frothy - amazing texture. Coffee, chocolate, licorice, aniseed and less obvious red fruits and brandy. Semi dry finish with a little roasty malt. A sumptuos beer that really grows on you.

fiulijn (14350) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 5, 2009
Corked bottle, vintage 2009
Black color, with big creamy head, brownish. It has light aroma of roasted malt, bread and molasses. The flavor is very rich, considering also the strong body and the smooth mouthfeel; there is chocolate, caramel, some roasted malt, a hint of liquorice (that was a bit disturbing in the beginning, but tends to disappear later). It has a correctly strong bitterness that mixes well with the alcohol warmth in the final. Not vibrating, not surprising, but solid chocolatey Imperial Stout, extremely good and well balanced.
