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

this was the first porter that i ever tried many moons ago in college...sure there are better porters out there but this one is a great start...pours black with creamy head....smell and taste is chocolate, malt and smoke....slightly bitter finish...way enjoyable porter.

I keep trying this porter and it keeps staying at one of my least liked. Aroma of slight chocolate, smoke, and coffee. Appearance is a perfect dark reddish brown with tan head. Taste is smokey with some bitterness. The chocolate aroma is missing in the taste making it one dimensional for me. Not a go to porter for me.

One of my lowest rated porters. Aroma was fine. Roasted malt coffee and slight chocolate dark pour. Taste was over carbonated burnt hop coffe etc. Scorched. I don’t mind a slight char but this was over the top

Tap - big creamy head, very dark bet color, sweet roasty malt aroma and flavor, mild hop balance, very mild chocolate and coffee notes - pretty good porter overall ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Dark brown, black, with tan head. Frothy and good lacing. Coffee smell. Subtle porter taste throughout, which is good for someone who doesn’t love porters. Better than I remember from before.

Bottle. Pours a black color with off white head. Roasty, creamy, malty, slight metallic aromas. Malty, burnt, roasty flavors. A solid, but not spectacular porter.

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

RedEft (155) - 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.
