COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Summit Porter is very dark, but lighter-bodied than you’d expect, with a robust, malty character and a delightfully sweet finish.

I am typically not a Summit fan. This beer was a pleasant surprise. It is a decent porter.

Nice beer. Pours dark brown. Roasty and slightly malty. Medium carbonation. Some coffee. Medium bodied. Decent beer.

RedEft (154) - Wichita, Kansas, USA - AUG 20, 2013
Poured a dark coffee-brown with a light cardboard head that persisted for a few minutes. Nice lacing. The aroma is malts and chocolate, but not overt at all. Taste is nice and malty, dark chocolate in the middle, and a very mild, bitter coffee finish - no sweet finish here! Slightly oily feel. Nice porter.

Pours very dark tan with a good long lasting head. Coffee and malt, lots of sweetness throughout. Pleasant and easy to drink, but very thin - almost like water.

12oz bottle, picked up from Party Town a week or so ago. Code on bottle is "11741257". Dark brown color. Thin light brown head. Decent bits of lace. Medium body. Smooth, crisp carbonation of moderate strength. More dry finish. Good bitter dark chocolate, nice amount of roast malt. Some earthy hop. Good moderate bitter taste, lighter but kind of lingering sweetness. Just a hint of metallic in the finish. Solid porter. Better than expected.

For not typically being a porter guy, I really enjoyed this poured out of a 12oz bottle. Had a nice creamy head with plenty of chocolatey aroma. A good balance between roasted malt and subtle hoppiness.

Another great beer from Summit. Malty, roasty, nutty and not too sweet- everything a good porter should be.

12oz bottle poured into glass. Nice subtle hints of chocolate, semi sweet with a little bit of a dry finish. Simple and straight to the point.

Typical Porter. Nothing crazy, nothing bad. The lighter palate is the only problem with this that I dislike.

12 oz bottle, best by 03 25 13,pours black with a small diminishing light brown head . Aroma is moderate burnt coffee with hints of rasin and chocolate. The body is medium -light, a bit thin for a porter.The flavor of coffee and chocolate are short lived. The long lasting burnt astringent finish is the biggest downfall to this beer.
