Brewer Eric Harper has gone old school for Summit Unchained #11. As in, Old 152. Inspired by the Kentucky Common beer style that was popular before Prohibition, it actually uses a sour mash of maize and rye in addition to traditional malts and Cluster hops (just about the only hop available in the U.S. back then).
The results are anything but sour, yielding a chestnut-colored brew with a slightly spicy floral aroma, biscuit, caramel notes and crisp, clean bitterness.

12oz. bottle. Interesting aroma, with notes of caramel, grain, toasted bread, hop spice, faint apple and touches of doughy yeast. Hazy red-orange in color, some slight sediment which was swirled and poured, with a frothy, lasting, off-white head and thick lacing to match. Flavor profile is somewhat bitter, fruity and malty, with aspects of bready wheat, citric rye, toasted and lightly sweet caramel malts, somewhat herbal, spicy hops, finishing with hints of red apple skin and even a bit of lemon. Some sharp effervescence on the palate but with a smooth and creamy mouthfeel, lightly astringent and mostly dry with a medium body. I had no idea what this was when I picked it up, and after drinking it, I still don’t. It’s certainly not bad, just a little rough around the edges (which may be authentic for the style, for all I know).

Pours light amber with white head. Fruity/ herbal aroma. Hoppy taste without the extreme bitterness. Very smooth taste and great flavor. Shout out to tizzlejizzle for the share of this bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

PorterPounder (7420) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 21, 2013
Tampa. Fl - Total Wine - 12 oz bottle. Pours a murky medium copper pour, bubbly off white head, thin lacing. Aroma is decidedly sweet with some date accents, a hint of white grapes. Flavor has the same general sweetness with some dates, toffee, some maple syrup, some citrus bitterness in the back end. Mouthfeel has a nice stickiness to it. A bomber of this would have started edging toward cloying,

Bottle. Pours a clear apricot with a tan head that lasts throughout the beer. Aroma has a pretty strong note of bread with a bit of a musty forest note and just a touch of sweetness. Flavor is similar with a good amount of bread notes with the same musty forest note.

12 oz. bottle, consumed on 2-28-13. Dry aroma features biscuit and dark chocolate scents. Pours a slightly hazy but mostly clear copper-brown with a moderate amount of long-lasting, taupe head. Produces good, long-lasting lacing. Dry taste features mineral water, light lemon, peach, cracker, and whole wheat bread elements. Long, dry aftertaste. Moderate body. Lively, frothy, and smooth in the palate. Enjoyable brew in a beer type in which it is hard to rate highly.
