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.

Bottle into snifter. Huge thanks to buckeyesox for this one - I believe it’s about a year old. Pours opaque black, with a one-finger very fluffy dark brown head, settling down into a denser, but thin, brown cap that doesn’t want to go away. The head is fantastic for this beer. Nose is equally fantastic - a nice mix of espresso, rich chocolate, and vivid dark fruits, with the emphasis on the dark fruits and cocoa. The nose is just so rich but still supremely balanced and integrated. Starts off with just a huge, delicious espresso presence right off the bat, with a secondary note of rich cocoa, and lots of licorice and dark fruit swirling around in there. There’s a smoky tobacco quality as well. Superb in every respect. Mouthfeel is just as fantastic - lighter than expected, with a more active carbonation that’s still soft and light on the tongue. You just don’t want to stop drinking this thing. Almost no alcohol presence, fantastic mouthfeel, delicious flavor - can’t say enough about this beer. Hits on all cylinders. As a note, the alcohol starts to warm you up about halfway through, and comes out a bit more as the beer hits room temperature, but never detracts from the flavors or body of the beer. Still an A+ effort.

Vignale (2106) - Malmö, SWEDEN - OCT 8, 2014
Flaska från Craftbeer/Galatea. Tjock, maffig och fullmatad IS. Mer massor av mörk torkad frukt med viss syrlighet än choklad/kaffe. Söt och inte särskilt besk, istället torv, sötlakrits och fruktig espresso. Riktigt riktigt gott.

Pours dark with brown head. Strong coffee and mild bitterness. Not for the faint of heart, but delicious for the Imperial Stout lover.

Bottle at Moeder Lambic. Almost pitch black with brown head. Aromas of Chocolate, vanila, cheese snack, toffi and much more. Very smooth and thick mouthfeel. Wonderfully balanced taste. Mostly sweet with moderate bitterness. Wow.

DuffLover (92) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 7, 2014
Sweet aroma. Flavors of chocolate and the bitterness of roasted coffee. I like it, but if I’m feeling ghoulish, I would go with Stone’s gargoyle.
