COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An English style dry porter, the Snake Bite is dark, crisp, smokey and delicious. Die hard porter fans come back for this one. Self proclaimed "non-beer-drinkers" have been wooed to the craft side of beer by it too. By popular demand we serve this beer year round.

kathouse (998) - Nevada, USA - MAY 27, 2012
From the brewery tap, pours a nice black with brown edges. Head is thick and is darker than most porters. Roasted nose, coffee, and chocolate make a good combination with some hop aroma noticeable. Big dry roasted flavor, black malts, and chocolate. Good beer.

Zymurgeist2 (988) - Redwood City, California, USA - NOV 10, 2011
On tap at the brewery. My favorite brew of the sampler. Great aroma with smoke and some chocolate. Beautiful opaque with full head. Nice medium bodied mouthfeel.

reebtogi (4151) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 23, 2011
650ml bottle poured almost black in color with a big beige head and some thin lacing. Aroma of roasted malts and chocolate with a hint of coffee. Taste is roasted malty sweetness and chocolate and coffee with a mild hop bitterness. A nice porter that is worth a try.

Cybercat (3277) - Georgia, USA - AUG 2, 2011
Comes out of the bottle a barely translucent warm sable brown with a substantial, if not too persistent, fine-bubbled tan head. Aroma is smoky and has components of brown sugar and quality coffee. Lip-smacking flavor has tones of quality coffee, molasses, caramel and semi-sweet chocolate plus a hint of licorice. Texture is smooth, a little thick, and just a little fizzy. Definitely worthy, especially if you favor porters.

AmEricanbrew (5800) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - JUN 9, 2011
Bottle. Brown color/ tan head. Cocoa, pale malt, dark roast aromas. Medium body with a smooth mouthfeel. Nice malted chocolate, pale malt, medium roast malt flavors--good.

DJMonarch (9159) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2011
From the Jug at the GABF, Colorado Convention Center Denver 18/09/2010 (ABV 5.5%) Roast aroma. Dark red coloured fruity and hoppy with a hint of bitterness in a roast malt finish.

jcr (2198) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - MAR 12, 2011
Bomber. Black body. Frothy, tan head, slowly diminishing. Aroma of roasted malts, dark chocolate, espresso. The flavor is lightly to moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly sweet, lightly to moderately bitter and lightly acidic. Medium body, watery texture and average carbonation. The beer is all about the roasted malts. Tastes of coffee, bitter chocolate and tobacco. Long, dry, bitter aftertaste. Body is a bit watery, but considering the low alcohol and low sweetness, not surprising. Enjoyable.

bhensonb (10950) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 16, 2010
Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours black with a large foamy tan head. Aromas of chocolate and coffee. Med body. Flavor is slightly sweet, definitely has some coffee type bitter. I’d say the IBU understates. Not getting a lot of chocolate. In a way it’s a low impact taste. But there’s a lot of coffee and burnt malt. Goes down really easily. Try it. You won’t regret it.
