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.

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.

Aromat: slodki, ciezki, zawiesisty, miks czekolady gorzkiej i deserowej, pralinki, troche kawy, karmelu i slodów palonych. Wyglad: czarne, nieprzejrzyste, piana tworzy wysoka kilkucentymetrowa warstwe utrzymujaca sie. Piana jasno brunatna, drobnopecherzykowa, ladny lacing na szkle. Smak: czekolada gorzka, czekolada mleczna, pelne w smaku, troche umami, kawa, suszone sliwki, duzo slodów palonych, palony jeczmien. W tym piwie jest naprawde duza palonosc, piwo raczej wytrawne, goryczka duza, ostre i agresywne. Wysycenie niskie, cialo pelne, troche likierowosci, na finiszu gorzka palonosc. Dla milosników wytrawnych, nieprzeslodzonych imperialnych stoutów. Duza kompleksowosc w posmaku, ogólnie piwo bogate i zróznicowane, dobrze ulozone, alkohol zupelnie ukryty.. Moze moglo by byc ciut slodsze, ale z kolei teraz nie jest meczace i mulace. Bardzo dobre. 8/5/7/4/15

From bottle. The aroma was chocolate and coffee. The head was a dramatic coco bubble festival. Flavor was again much bitter chocolate with notes of carame. The finish was a bit astringent. The mouthfeel was rich and satisfying. Loved it.

Czarne piwo z brązową pianą. W aromacie czekolada, praliny belgijskie, kawa. W smaku z początku umiarkowana słodycz, która po chwili przechodzi w gorzką, deserową czekoladę i kawę. Czuć paloność.Jest gęste, oleiste. Alkohol schowany bardzo dobrze, delikatnie wyczuwalny na finiszu. Świetnie zbalansowane i eleganckie. Świetne!

Bezowa piana i czarne piwo, duzo palonych slodow z czekolada i lekko slodkim karmelowym finiszem. Ciemne slodkie owoce, lekki tyton z orzechy z ziolami. Alkohol delikatnie wychodzi ale za to jak przyjemnie rozgrzewa.

SonOfAnarchy (456) - ST HELENA - JUL 4, 2017
Bottle. Pitch black in the glass with no visible head whatsoever. Aroma of notes of chocolate and cocoa intermingling with burned dark malt, plus some molasses in the background. Taste is semi-sweet, with an average bitterness; flavors of dark bitter chocolate, slight cocoa, roasted malts, and warm alcohol. Medium body, thick oily texture, low to very low carbonation.

Barwa czarna, piana beżowa. Aromat intensywny, zwiastujący potężne piwo - gorzka czekolada, nuty porto, wyraźna paloność. W smaku b. pełne,gęste, gorzka czekolada, kawa, popiołowość, kakao. Całość raczej wytrawna, z popiołowym finiszem.

Barwa czarna, piana mała beżowa. Aromat praliny, czekolada, kakao, wanilia i rum. Mega fajny. W smaku bardzo kakaowe, truflowe, kawowe, tytoniowe, karmelowe. Półsłodkie z fajną kawową goryczką. Bardzo mięsiste. Alko niewyczuwalne, grzeje mocno w przełyk. Bardzo dobre pifko.

Aroma of molasses with notes of chocolate and some cocoa chips. Deep brown in the glass, almost none head. Taste is semi sweet with notes of roasted malts, chocolate, cocoa. Alcohol is noticeable but not really aggressive. Classic stuff.
