I think this may be Summit’s best effort to date. I am truly sadden to see this go in March. A very smooth and creamy stout and a great alternative to Guinness for the people who are beginning to try new styles. It is only available on nitro-tap.
Had on tap at Durty Nellie’s

On tap at Ike’s in the Minneapolis-St. Paul airport. On nitro, how could this look anything but beautiful? A Deep brown stout capped with a cappuccino colored foam, soft and dense. The aroma of sweet coffee, with a dash of cream, and as I take my first drink I realize that the flavors are mirrored perfectly. The taste is sweet, and as much as I am not a fan of sweet Stout, this one is actually pretty tasty and not overboard with the sweetness. Thick creamy body with a touch of carbonation, just enough to liven the beer, but enough to kill the experience of a nitro on my tongue.
Great stuff, very tasty with an enjoyable body. I would do this again.

Had this on nitro at Foster’s Pint & Plate in Rogers. Pours dark brown with a creamy off white head (thanks to nitro). Aroma is an even blend of roast and dark chocolate. Mouthfeel was very creamy and smooth. Really nice beer, and even better on nitro.

Smooth oatmeal taste with a fair amount of boldness at the end. As far as oatmeal stouts this is the standard of measures.

16oz Draft 12/28/14 (High Life Lounge-DSM)-Pours black with a decent tan head. Aroma of sweetness, coffee, and chocolate. Taste of the same. This medium to full bodied brew is well balanced and I was pleasantly surprised. Great.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasted on nitro tap at Seamus O’Daniels in Dogtown, seated at the bar next to the Irish flags, union stickers, and toughs complaining about today’s bathroom drywall jobs. It poured opaque black, that is, after the cascading tan foam settled back into fluid, with a persistent head and lots of lace. Nondescript grainbill, no real malt complexity. I didn’t get much chocolate, coffee, caramel, bread, toast, toffee, dark fruit, roasted barley, etc. Sufficient bitterness but lacked hop flavours/aromas too. Sweeter than Guinness, with less metallic bite, but not very malty-sweet in its own right. Nice full body with smooth and creamy mouthfeel from so much oatmeal. It’s obviously all about the nitro presentation; not bottled, only served on tap at logical Irish-themed bars, etc. Good, no glaring faults, but not the greatest overall.
