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.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

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

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.

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.

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.
