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.

750 mL bottle of the 2009 vintage pours a murky black with a brawn head. Moderate retention and lace.

Nose is black licorice, cocoa powder, carob and oddly enough, overripe bananas. There is still a bit of clingy grass hop aroma as well.

Taste is dusty cocoa powder with a surprising amount of hoppy bitterness still. Black licorice pervades and it is not really a stout to my liking. It reminds me of Nightstalker. The mouthfeel is silky yet I wish there was more sweetness. This one just isnt really for me...I had a fresher sample a few times and liked it about the same as this aged version.
