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

Lovely dark color. Can really smell the roast in the pour. Plenty of chocolate upfront, with good roasted malts in the finish. Is a mite thin on the texture, too watery. Enjoyable, but not phenomenal.

It’s just too bad we only had one bottle.

Nice and roasty with a black malt finish that does not linger too long like some. For the stout and porter lover this is a nice staple.

Got Stout? (173) - Wisconsin, USA - NOV 27, 2001
UPDATED: MAY 15, 2005 A predictable but worthy porter. Rich chocolate followed by a roasty punch in the face really caught my attention, but nothing out-of-the-ordinary. At only 4.9%, this is recommended as an excellent session brew.

Some nice choclatey notes, but roasty bitterness takes over.

alright, bitter taste overwhelms the malt

Big aroma, big flavor, beautiful appearance, weak body: a somewhat worthy beer that just misses real distinction.

Beautiful in color and great tasting. Overall a nice porter.

Not bad, did not have a coffee taste which was good.
