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.

GIJOE (979) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - JAN 21, 2013
Faint hints of grass and cotton candy in the aroma- like going to the county fair. Deep raven-black appearance; opaque blackness from whence my soul shall be lifted nevermore. Carmel-brown head that dissipates but leaves serpentine lacing that lingers long like the guilt of sins past. Oh, but the taste! Thick, rich, malty wickedness with hints of coffee, licorice, and maybe even the forbidden fruit! Toasted marshmallow lingers long. Medium body; somewhat sweet and alluring, but the eternal struggle between good and evil is present in the devilish dance of bitterness and malty sweetness. At 11%, not really sessionable, but to hell with caution! The serpent delivers! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Marduk (4224) - Reval, ESTONIA - OCT 1, 2015
750ml bottle (thanks FatPhil). Pitch black color. Small size, brown head, stays. Sweet, caramel, minty, cake in aroma. Mild roast, sweet, ashy in taste. Ashy roast in aftertaste. Alcoholic burn when I swallow. So quite alcoholic.

750ml bottle (300e of overpriced beer tasting) (Alus Celle, Riga) (7:4:7:4:14=3.6)
Opaque black beer with a dark head. Smells sweet and sticky, with a bit of chocolate and toasty roasted malts. Anna thinks it’s a bit slimy, but it works for me. Certainly there’s an alcohol rush up the back of the nose, and it’s downright boozy in the finish. Anna’s clearly no fan, it’s heading towards being an oppressive boozy mess for her. At least she liked the burnt finish. I, however, found it a very nicely roasted stout. Certainly better warmer, as the coffee comes out nicely in the finish later - lovely.
