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.

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

Not a fan of this one. Two much roast and carbonation. Very dry. Has a big fruity flavor that I didn't like.

Very flavorful, not as dry as many imperial stouts. Would happily drink again.
