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.

Great porter! I see why it won gold. Really clean a flavorful. Big roasty and extra dark. Smooth and ultra drinkable. One of the best I have ever had. Smoky peat.

Great Beer! Tried it for the first time last night at Venti’s in Salem, OR. Looks like a dark porter, but comes across as a light one.

Cybercat (3226) - 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.

Really awesome. Such a nice blend of creamy, smooth, rich, balanced malt/hop and mouthfeel, with a kiss of smoke. Overall really well made and I like the lil smoke and it doesnt ruin the palate pleasure. Good job

From the brewery tap, pours a nice black with brown edges. Head is thick and is darker than most porters. Roasted nose, coffee, and chocolate make a good combination with some hop aroma noticeable. Big dry roasted flavor, black malts, and chocolate. Good beer.

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

Smells like chocolate. Lots of chocolate. Im surprised at how low alcohol. Nice porter.

bhensonb (10803) - 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.

Alphadelic (1751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 10, 2013
when cold it has a lightly sweet and milky nose. the balance of roast, bitterness and chocolate is quite sublime. with its slik texture and relaxed carbonation it does very well. very surprised by this.

(22oz bottle) Pours an opaque black body with a small brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, and graham cracker. Flavor of dry cocoa, roasted malt, and coffee.
