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.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
