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

Roasted coffee aroma. Looks incredible with its chocolate-brown color and light tan frothy head. Roasted grain, coffee and bitter chocolate flavors. A little to pungent to me, but not bad. A good beer to sit indoors with and sip away the winter blues.

Beers like this are/is why Porter was my favorite style years and years ago. Greet looking beer with a ton of sweet dark grain flavors backed by a lot of bitterness and an odd twang. Very complex beer--I assuming it's unpasteurized. Sort of in the Sierra Nevada Porter tradition. A great one from the great outdoorsman, Slikwily.

Has a great smell of roasted coffee. The taste a is a little thin. I has definite tastes of sweet and a little smokiness.

12 oz bottle pours deep amber brown with a beautiful rocky head and lots of lace. The aroma is toasty and bread like. The flavor shows some coffee roastiness and chocolate in the front end and goes through to an almost smokiness and finishes with a sweetness that lingers. The palate is quite nice and rich like I expect from the style. Overall, I think this is one of Summit's better products.

Porters are not one of my favorite beer styles, but this one was actually pretty good. It poured a medium sized light brown frothy head and it had fine-medium sized bubbles. The body was uncarbonated and the hue was dark brown. The nose was that of coffee and the flavor was roasted coffee that left an aftertaste. The mouthfeel was smooth on the palate and medium bodied. This beer left a good lacing on the sides of my glass.

Black. Big tan head that laces the glass. Aroma of wood and fruit. This beer has a smokey flavor, with sweet malt. Medium bodied.

This brew pours a small head of brown colored mostly lasting fine to medium sized bubbles that leave behind a opaque dark brown colored body with no visible carbonation and a fair lacing. THe aroma is a very nice strong malt aroma with some chocolate and a lot of strong carmel. The mouthfeel is initially Tingly and finishes with a strong coffee tingle. The flavor comes on smoothly at first and I am thinking "Iam really going to enjoy this one", but then something in the finish bothers me. I take another sip and the stong coffee flavor hits me again. It gets a little better as time goes on. A hop bite begins to come though. This brew is full of coffee character and comes on quite strong. It is a bit rough around the edges, but very good brew to start my evening off with!

While a very good porter in the bottle, this is a much better beer if you can find a bar that serves it from the tap. One of Summit's best beers, they do a good job.

Indra (2594) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - JUL 24, 2003
Very coffeeish, roasty aroma, some grain and cocoa. Deep brown color with an uneven, lasting, creamy light tan head. Roasty and bittersweet flavor profile, more cocoa and coffee bean, with a bit of spicy hop entering towards the end. Malty, roasty and lightly toffeeish finish, with a light addition of dry hop bitterness. Medium bodied, mouthfeel is a bit on the thin side and has a tad too much carbonation. Fairly tasty.
