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.

Superb. 32 oz growler and absolutely (along with WnB and Heady Topper) one of the best non barreled beers in the world. Haven't done a review in quite some time, this beer deserves one. Let me say it again, really perfect.

Appearance? Poured into a 5oz sniffer is like all Port beers, perfect. Huge aroma coffee and chocolate. Taste massive coffee, chocolate, vanilla notes. Simple yet so flavorful, the mouthfeel is perfect. Smooth, thick, creamy stout deliciousness. Have to try a bottle to compare but this is absolutely one of the best beers I've had. Really, you have Bourbon County, Alewerks Bourbon Barrel Porter, HT, WnB and Port Hop 15 when I speak of best beers the world.

And not a hint of alcohol in this monster beer. Master brewing.

On tap at Mad Mex

Appearance: Black with a one finger brown head. One of the better looking beers iv seen

Smell: i get a lot of coffee, some chocolate, caramel, vanilla, perhaps a touch of dark fruit

Taste: Upfront is a dark, luscious coffee and chocolate, smoke and light dark fruit in the middle, with all flavors finishing together on the palate. I get hop presence and bitterness throughout

Mouthfeel: Heavy medium body; I think the bitterness throughout hides the alcohol.

Overall: This is one big, badass brew. It almost tastes like a barrel aged beer but isnt. Ton of vanilla and smoke. The hop bitterness hides the alcohol well, and i imagine that subsiding tremendously with age, letting the malt aromas come out more. This is one of the better examples iv had, and if not for the hop presence, would be out of this world
