COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Blacksnake Porter is loaded with premium ingredients. The sweet aroma holds hints of roasted malts, and chocolate is noticeable. This fine craft brew is absolutely silky. It has chocolate and toffee flavors that are accented by hints of coffee. A clean, smooth finish leaves you wanting more.

Bottle. Hersey chocolate syrup and Irish cream aroma. Black brown with a small tan head. Chocolate, coffee, and molasses flavor. Medium to full body, light carbonation. Old bottle from a retired brewery, which aged remarkably well.

garthicus (2734) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAR 28, 2009
Many thanks to HogTownHarry for this. Pours dark brown/ruby with a cream head. Aroma: Coffee, chocolate, cream some malt, hazelnut, fudge. Flavour: Initially quite a thin body with a carbonation bite, however as it warms up it becomes more smooth and creamy, malt and peat comes to the front, coffee, chocolate and a mild creamy turf finish. Nice.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 25, 2009
Very dark brown with a two finger tan head. Aroma of chocolate with roasted and sweet malts. Taste of roasted malts, chocolate and coffee. Finishes up with a dry roasty semi-bitter finish. The signs of age were a bit noticeable but overall it wasn’t too bad.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 16, 2008
Another beer from these guys with a cool label. I hope whoever the artist is who did these is making labels for other brewers. Pours dark brown with a light brown head. Smells of sweet malt and some chocolate. Tastes of roasted malt with some nice chocolatey hints on the finish.

ross (2100) - weddington, North Carolina, USA - JAN 30, 2008
Significantly better than the double IPA. Pours out a black color with a nice big head on it. Smells sweet and has some chocolate and a little bit of coffee in it. There isnt much going on taste wise, it seems like there may have been more flavor at some point, but now this beer just tastes weak and old. It was drinkable, but thats about all I would say for it.

mabel (6789) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 13, 2008
[992-20071223] 355mL (c/o GregClow, w/ him, jerc). Fruity dark malt aroma has a lightly smoked background. Clear, dark brown body with a medium-lasting creamy light tan head. Dry roasted coffee malt flavour. Full body has a dry bitter finish. Nice though a little odd.

Bottle shared with jerc & mabel - my bottle obtained from HogTownHarry. Deep brown with a small tan head. Aroma of roast malt and sweet cocoa powder. Medium body. Flavour is a bit dryer than expected from the flavour, with a bitter roastiness and moderate hops in the finish. Not bad.

jercraigs (8070) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 24, 2007
Bottle. Black body with a small khaki head. (3+) Modest roasty aroma, very light acidity. Similar flavour of moderate roast that lingers long into the finish and aftertaste. Moderate bitterness from the roast. Average palate. Not unpleasant but not particularly inspiring either. 6/3+/6/3/12

Ughsmash (7184) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 28, 2007
Bottled. I think Harry sent this my way! Poured a rather thin deep brown with a nice, but short-lived cap of deep tan head. The aroma picked up deeply-roated, yet sweet dark chocolate, coffee, and lighter dark fruitage with mild, yet still present herbal notes behind.. just the faintest bit buttery.. smelled great to me! The flavor held serve.. smooth milkier chocolates wash over the tongue at ease with lower carbonation on the fore.. the middle found more carbonation, and the milky chocolates fade into slightly-burnt darker chocolates, coffee, and caramel.. what little bitterness there was came primarily from the coffee and worked well. Medium-bodied with great balance.. carbonation arose when necessary, the bitterness was light, but complimenatry, and the sweet, yet burnt finish gave a long, dry impression on the finish. This was a mighty fine porter, and it’s a damn shame that it’s no longer being made.

Dough77 (821) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - NOV 10, 2007
Big time malt chocolate and slight caramel notes. Pours a deep brown color with almost missing head. Very bitter, even for a beer that sat in my cellar for a year or so.
