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.

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.

hayduke (3580) - 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.

22oz bottle. Pours a dark, almost black, brown color with solid head. Very nice roasty nose with chocolate and coffee hints. Taste is very weak and body is thin. The nose on this one promised so much more.
