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.

Bottle from South Bay. The most impressive things are the thick texture and the very silky smoothness. Nose is like a semisweet dark chocolate brownie. Flavors of chocolate malt and deep Tootsie Roll. Sharpish finish. Would like to have seen a more Belgian influence, but I wont claim this aint a tasty beer.

UPDATED: MAR 6, 2009 On tap at Naked City. Pours black with a thin brown head. Coffee and dark chocolate in the nose. Alcohol is well-hidden by the chocolate maltiness. Nice thick mouthfeel.

Very nice stout. On tap at OBriens. Black pour, thick tan head. Coffee, dark bitter chocolate, plums, molasses, dark fruit, roasted malt, and smoke. The mouth feel is thick and creamy. Tasty brew.

Bottle: Near black pour with a huge, frothy brown head. Well carbonated for sure. Aroma of roast and chocolate. Light coffee. Sweet and chocolatey with a deep roastiness and more coffee. Nice and smooth. Creamier than expected with the high carbonation. Finished quite well. Thanks sparky27!

C&C 750. Pours jet black with a big brown head. Big chocolate nose, some yeastiness and a touch of fruit. Rather sweet, chocolate and mild coffee, some fruitiness - like a foreign stout. Excellent.

750ml bottle. Pitch black pour with a light brown head. Slightly sweet, dark fruit aroma. Hint of alcohol in there as well. Slightly smokey, a little bit of coffee in the as well. Very smooth and drinkable despite the 11%, good stuff.

Sampled on tap at the brewery. Pours a deep black with a tan ring. Aroma of malt, chocolate, wood, and a nice hint of smoke. Rich taste, of toasted malt, chocolate, wood, and an alcohol bite. Lingering sharp malt and alcohol. Very tasty imperial stout.

This is a unique stout. I pick up an almost cocoa something like suntan oil sweetness from this stout.I like the fact that it steps outside the norm of all others with the flavors not being to overwhelming to any one area. Nice balance with roasted malts and seems like there is some added sugar here as well. All in all a great offering...

25 oz bottle. Pours a pitch black body with a dark chocolate brown head. Rather fizzy looking head, lots of visible carbonation. Huge roasty nose with some chalk, burnt malt, dark fruits, yeast, light alcohol, even a little licorice. The more I smelled it the more a big milk chocolate aspect arose. Very burnt roasty flavor, some roasted peanuts, heavy dark candied fruits, kinda chalky on the finish with a little alcohol heat. A lot of bitterness going on here. Heavy thick texture with too much fizzy effervescent carbonation that actually kind of ruined the overall experience for me. Sticky alcoholic finish. Big for sure, but certainly not better. Not impressed with this effort.
