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

A really dark beer for people who really don’t like really dark beers. It’s a tease, really, but a fun tease.

UPDATED: OCT 10, 2005 roasted coffee and chocolate. satisfying from its flavorful front to its sweet, then bitter finish. A good porter.

Dark body, roasted chocolate malt flavor followed with a sweet mocha finish. Finish is bitter but well balanced.

I am not a porter fan by any means. It has a little too much of a ’coffee’ taste than i usually like. But thats a porter for you.

an excellent porter for the porter lovers out there. the flavor jumps from chocolatey to coffee.

Terminus (3283) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - FEB 25, 2002
not a bad porter, but somewhat bland. Somewhat thin feeling for a porter. This would be a good porter to start with for new craft beer drinkers

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.

Northernbrewer (147) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - NOV 27, 2001
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.
