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

Opaque mahogany body capped with a full tan head that leaft some lacing. Coffee in the aroma and a bitter coffee in the taste, Smooth and creamy to the mouth. Enjoyable.

this is my favorite of the summit beers. i've had it several times before, but today i tasted it fresh at the brewery. this ain't no anchor porter or anything, but.... sweet coffee and chocolate with significant hops. well balanced. i just wish the flavors were more prominent and it was a bit smoother on my pretty pink tongue.

Black with reddish brown highlights, good head. Aroma was rather faint, hints of roasted malts. Good flavor, emphasis on coffee, with a bit of chocolate and pine oriented hops on the finish. An enjoyable, well made porter, thanks wawood!

UPDATED: MAR 29, 2004 Not as smooth as Boulevard's Bully, but not bad. In fact, pretty good. Nice roasted coffee aroma, great color. Tastes a bit like dark unsweetened chocolate. Notice a smokiness as the glass warms. Has a lingerging sweetness. A good mouthfeel. More complex as you drink it down than a first impression from that first sip. All in all, a porter worthy of its name. Nice for the winter season, and a fair price for the cost conscious beer drinker.

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.
