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.

Cybercat (4632) - 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 (6607) - 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 (9173) - 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 (2487) - 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 (13508) - 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.

mattdev (74) - Oregon, USA - DEC 15, 2010
Pours a very dark black with a thick brown head that leaves almost no lace at all. Nearly zero opacity. Smell is rich of espresso and chocolate with a slight hint of roastyness. Almost getting some dough as well. Taste is extremely roasty and chocolatey. Finishes very clean with a low body, but bold flavor.

presario (4901) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 27, 2010
Bottle. Black with no head. Smells like a coffee stout. Hard to distinguish from stout. I like the low ABV which does not take away from the beer. Lots of coffee in the flavour.

22415brewery (379) - Washington, USA - SEP 27, 2010
An easy drinking porter that is very approachable and the lower alcohol content makes this a good choice for as a session ale. Pours a dark dark brown, with few ruby highlights. Aroma is of roast, light coffee. Tastes like a medium roast coffee, some biscuit like malt, nuts, and a faint citrus hop flavor followed by a peculiar essence of smoke (kinda like after you put out the charcoal fire and it leaves a faint smoldering odor). .

BillKismet (3721) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 26, 2010
Black, highly carbonated cola body with airy caramel-brown bubbled foam top. Appealing smoky, black patent infused roast nose. The flavor is deep roastiness with a charcoal dry finish. A nice, smoky, brew suitable for grill outs or cool, wet nights.

TipsyMcStager (1139) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 24, 2010
mild choco aroma. Pours opaque brown, foamy tan head. Smokiness, acidity. Mid range body.
