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.

bhensonb (11252) - 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.

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 (4652) - 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 (377) - redmond, 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 (3341) - 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.

Nena (963) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 12, 2010
Black with a small beige head. Aroma of strong coffee, chocolate, roast, a touch of anise. Flavor is quite similar with more char and a little smoke to it, body approaching watery but still quite acceptable as porters go.

DuffMan (6886) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 15, 2010
Bottle. Pours a deep brown with copper highlights and a thin tan head. Aroma has light smoke, dark chocolate, and roast. Flavours are pretty much the same as the aroma, with bitter chocolate leading the way, light ash, and bitter roast. Mouthfeel is fairly light, finish is dry.

From a bottle. I thought this was an excellent well balanced Porter, highly recommended.

Tried a bomber of this last night with "AKFaust" and "hannont". Colour... very dark brown with a thin head. Nose... lightly roasty with hints of light bodied coffee and charred meat. Palate... slightly sweet and mildly bitter, roasted malt, chicory, burnt cream and a medium finish.
