My experience with summit is still relatively limited and has generally been on the hoppier spectrum. Their Oatmeal Stout makes it obvious they can handle dark beer too. It hits all the right notes. Black body with a rich layer of suds. Roast/toast malt aromas. Semi-sweet flavors with assertive coffee and chocolate characteristics. While not hugely boozy there’s some pleasant warmth to this. Thick, smooth, dry, and creamy textures. Very tasty.

nitro tap - Pours near black with the typical big, long lasting head of a nitro tap. It’s light tan and laces heavily. The aroma is of roast malt and coffee. The taste is similar and is sweet but not too sweet. Medium to full bodied. Very good.

Deep black color, opaque in the relatively dim lighting of the restaurant. Light carbonation. 3/4 inch off-white to tan creamy thick head. Attractive lacing clings as you drink The verbal deScription does not do it justice... this is a gorgeous looking beer. Malty sweet aroma with hints of roastiness. Moderately thick mouth feel, very smooth and creamy. A bit of carbonation apparent to the tongue. Matly, smokey, hints of cocoa flavor. Slight bittering in the middle. Clean, crisp, slightly bitter finish. Absolutely wonderful.
