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.

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 (9498) - 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.

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.

Bomber. Pours murky brown with a thick tan head. Aroma of chocolate, brown sugar with a hint of hops. Medium body, texture a bit watery with fine carbonation. The taste has chocolate, a touch of coffee, nuts and brown sugar with a hint of smoke. Dry finish. Pretty solid.

Bottle back at Tumalo campground. Late eveniing..sky mauve..quater moon . Dark brown ale, light brown thick creamy head. Malty roasted aromas, dark chocolate. Rather milky taste, slightly toasted oat. Lite coffee , dark chocolate:only 65% cacoa. Tastes like a true English porter. Good smooth yet thin ( in style) mouthfeel. Very nice drinkable and lowish alkie.

hayduke (4755) - Eureka, California, USA - APR 16, 2009
This poured from the 22 oz bottle a very dark brown tending toward black with a robust foamy tan head and good lacing rings as it very slowly settled. Good head retention. Nose was of roasted malts and floral hops with some coffee notes. Very smooth mouthfeel. Flavor is uncomplicated with chocolate, coffee, and a hint of fruit. Finish is dry. A very easy drinking porter.

On tap at Bailey’s in Portland, which is a pretty cool place. Black to dark brown in color. Aroma was roasted, a bit meaty and oaty. Flavor was very thin and watery. Roasted malt with some chocolate and something akin to tobacco. Just ok.
