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.

Dogbrick (8507) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 24, 2013
Sample at the brewpub. Brownish-black pour with a medium tan head that dissipates slowly. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate and hops. Light-bodied with a roasty character and flavors of chocolate malt, coffee and hops. The finish is sweet with a malty aftertaste. Decent overall.

Draft pour at the silver leaf. Pours a cola black with a huge foamy tan head. Mild coffee roast and malt aroma. With a name like snake bite, I expected it to have a bite too it but this beer is so smooth. A bit of a dessert beer. Sweet vanilla and chocolate flavors with a sweeter finish. Overall, a really tasty porter. Really enjoyed this.

"easily the best of the 3 we had from there. not quite a standout, but something i would drink again. pours nearly black with a nice roasted malt and coffee/smoke aroma. similar flavor. a touch thin, but has a robust flavor."

Legitimate Porter flavor. I have a feeling this brewery will be producing many great beers in the future.

Ernest (6318) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 4, 2014
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is dark brown to black. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (chocolate, caramel, roasted grain), with a note of vanilla. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. A simple, plain rendition, but no flaws. Not enough balance for the sweetness.

kidmartinek (3742) - austin, Texas, USA - NOV 14, 2013
Dark brown ale. Off white head lasts an hour plus. Sharp roasty nose. Sharper roasty flavor with a mellow middle amd milky finish. Not my rav. Want porters to be smoother, less roast and more cocoa.

GT2 (8684) - San Diego County, California, USA - OCT 19, 2013
Tap at Silver Moon. Someone needs a graphic designer. Pours a deep brown with healthy foam. Nose is coffee, savory, hazelnut. Taste has a harsh coffee bite, soap, chemical, hydrogen peroxide. Papery palate. Huh.

Hanuta06 (347) - Washington, USA - OCT 10, 2013
Serving: from bottle--purchased at Made in Oregon. Aroma: light apple and raisin. Appearance: large, rocky, light-brown, initial head with fair lacing and fully diminishing longevity. Dark-brown body. Taste: lightly acidic, raisin, apple initial flavor and lightly bitter, roasty finish with average duration. Palate: medium body with dry texture and lively carbonation. Overall: nice roasty finish, but I didn’t care for the apple raisin taste.

Mora2000 (5834) - McKinney, Texas, USA - AUG 19, 2013
Black pour with a brown head. The aroma is very full of milk chocolate with some lactose notes. The flavor is a mix of bitter chocolate and roasted malt. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
