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

piscator34 (2408) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - AUG 16, 2009
Bottled sample shared with oakbluff. Jet black in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are of malty sweet cereal grains, and a bit of chocolate. The chocolate (syrup) element is far stronger in the mouth along with secondary notes of coffee, vanilla, herbal hops, and mild berries. Medium to heavy bodied. Strange that the nose was so simplistic, while the flavors were far more dynamic. Good overall.

oakbluff (447) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - AUG 15, 2009
Pours midnight black, with solid immovable three finger mocha head. Nose- sweet malt mostly. Taste- vanilla, dark chocoate, dark fruits with a roasty finish. Hops and roast combine for a nice bite. No overwhelming flavours. Nice balanced.

italarican (1543) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - AUG 14, 2009
Pours a deep dark chocolate brown with a small mocha head. Intense aroma of molasses, brown sugar, dark chocolate, vanilla, and soy. The flavors are surprisingly sweet and light given the dark, rich aroma. Lots of milk chocolate, vanilla, roasted malt, and over-toasted almonds. Nutty finish with a slight bourbon and dark chocolate kick at the end. I dig.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 10, 2009
[email protected] ljunta Olympen gathering. Opaque black, with a tanned ring of foam clinging to the glass. Initial aroma of licorice and beef-stock. Coffee, hard roasted malts and bitter chocolate to come. Complex and surprisingly rounded malt body. A great deal of roasted dark malts of course, also a broad range of other flavors; coffe-beans, dark chocolate, alcolhol, vanilla, acidic fruits, and an appropriate amount of fruity/peppery hops. Medium to full body. Slick mouthfeel. Malty-sweet and bitterish ending. Nice all over.

timfoolery (1126) - California, USA - AUG 6, 2009
Bottle from Monument in Concord, CA. This Imp Stout was a wonderful malt/coffee/chocolate dream of a beer. The only drawback was drinking it on a 100 degree night. Great palate and mix of flavors.

caesar (6974) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - AUG 5, 2009
Bottled. Cloudy dark, short off-white head. Aroma of roasted malt, some coffee. Not as bitter and as much chocolate as some other stout, but nicely balanced.

fiulijn (20222) - 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.

BeerandBlues2 (12848) - Escondido, California, USA - AUG 3, 2009
Bottle. Pours opaque with an average, dark brown head, somewhat lasting with fair lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (chocolate, coffee, burnt grain, caramel), heavy hop (perfume), average yeast (leather) with notes of alcohol, oak, tar, prune, and plum. Full bodied, alcoholic texture, lively carbonation, and a bitter finish. Long duration, heavy sweetness and bitterness, moderate acidity.

Kestral (506) - rnes, NORWAY - AUG 3, 2009
Bottle. Black with a light brown creamy head, nice lacing. Quite a bit of alcohol on the nose. Loads of different stuff going on here, tar, fudge, coffee, anise, dark fruits, chocolate. Fat and chewy. A bit too hot, but undeniably enjoyable none the less.

presario (4916) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 1, 2009
Bottle. Black. Thin dark head around the edges and a ghostly wisp across the surface. Dark black aroma. Black tar smokey flavour. Big imperial stout nose. Cant taste the alcohol but can feel the fumes rising in the finish.
