Silver Moon "Snake Bite Porter"
Silver Moon Brewing - Bend, Oregon USA
Porter (ABV 5.5%) (IBU 40)

[Suggested Glassware: Nonic Pint]

Rating: 3.6/5.0

Aroma: 7/10
Appearance: 4/5
Taste: 8/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 14/20

The pour was pitch black with a huge (3-4 finger) cocoa brown fluffy head that slowly receded, down to a thick foamy medium cap which produced some good runny lacing.

The aroma was of burnt dark bread malts, a mild resin hop and a bold leathery yeast with notes of baker's chocolate, coffee, vanilla and a light smoky presence.

The taste was extremely malty and very roasty with a huge bitter chocolate note which was present throughout, and then became slightly bitterer with a mild coffee taste and a hint of smoke towards the finish. The flavor lasted an average time following the swallow, with a roasty bitter mocha coffee taste hitting you right in the back of the throat, and then lingered there for a just little while longer.

Mouthfeel was medium in body with a thin oily texture and a carbonation that was ever so soft.

Overall I found this to be an extremely chocolaty brew with a nice bold bitter roastiness, which just so happened to create a superbly delicious drinking experience...
