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

Poured into Sam Adams Sensory Glass. No freshness date on bottle. Color is a deep copper brown. Pours a half inch of light tan foam. Head doesn’t last very long, but leaves some thin lacing. Smell is of over roasted malts and dark coffee. Very slight hops are present. The first thing I noticed about the taste was how hoppy it was. I immediately tasted earthy hops, as well as roasted chocolately malts. Mouthfeel is slightly bitter, but them gets very smooth and goes down easy. There is no alcohol even present in this beer. Overall, this is an easy to drink porter. I was not expecting the high taste of hops in this beer as it had, but I really enjoyed it. I highly recommend.

HIGHB4LL (636) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 23, 2014
12 oz. bottle from Cash Wise in Williston. Appearance: finger brown head, dark brown color, clear, good lacing. Aroma: chocolate, roast grain, light molasses, light grassy hops. Palate: full body, average carbonation, bitter finish, oily and sticky texture. Taste: sweet roasted malt, light chocolate, into moderate grassy bitterness (in contrast to sweet malt front at least). Overall, aroma is good, but bitterness is out of hand for the style, not a good balance in my opinion. Not too pleasant.

12 oz bottle poured into a pilsener glass. Pours a very dark color, almost black. Creamy tan head with moderate lacing. Sweet, malty odor. Initial taste is nicely balanced hop bitterness with malts, then the smoky, roasted flavor comes to the fore. This smoky taste remains the dominate character of this beer. Nice body, but not really thick. Smooth and creamy. The aftertaste is bitter, but not overbearing. I like this beer.

This is a tasty porter with great malt flavor. Not as strong with only 4.8% but still flavorful.

Bottle to pint. Looks good; a translucent dark cola with foamy beige head. Smells of dark malt, chocolate, and a bit of roast. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. Enjoyable.
