4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
2008 Tap. This is an excellent Oatmeal Stout, perhaps the best I’ve ever had. Deep, dark chocolate color with a resiliant, beautiful cream-colored head. This head lasted ’til the end of the glass, which I nursed. Smells of chocolate, maybe a little fruit, and coffee. Tastes of dark, roasted malts and brown sugar with a light alcohol aftertaste. All the flavors work beautifully together, making this ultra-quaffable and fun to drink. Enjoy!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap. This beer really impressed me, definitely my favorite Summit. Nice dark brown pour, with a solid tan head. Aroma is standard roasty/oatmeal. The flavor is full of chocolate, oatmeal and molasses, along with a nice, bitter burnt malt character. The mouthfeel is probably about a 3.5, but not quite a 4...quite good though. Very tasty beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Served on tap at Whistle Binky’s in Rochester, MN. Black with a khaki head. Thin lace. Roasted, latte taste with a semi sweet dry finish. I expected a hoppier note from summit. This beer is not to complex but is fair drinking with an Irish stew.
