Good brew. Pours black with a tan head. Lightly smoked, notes of tobacco. Smooth finish. TizzleJizzle (792) - Garland, Texas, USA - JUN 28, 2014
12 oz. bottle. Poured a dark deep brown color with a khaki head that dissipated faster than I would have hoped. Taste of sweet malts, cocoa and roasted malts with a bitter finish. Medium carbonation, medium body. UkrainPubCrawler (122) - Minnesota, USA - MAY 18, 2014
This is a tasty porter with great malt flavor. Not as strong with only 4.8% but still flavorful. b3shine (9200) - Indiana, USA - MAY 14, 2014
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.

Tap at Summit brewery. Pours dark brown with tan head and very little lacing. Nose is smoky dark chocolate. Taste is some coffee but the smoke still comes through. troyc (2869) - Illinois, USA - APR 9, 2014
[Tap] Pours a deep shade of brown. Wispy brown head. Hazelnut and burnt caramel aroma. Brown sugar, chocolate and general porter roastiness thoughout. Creamy mouthfeel almost suggests hints of lactose. This was a pretty good beer, in my opinion. Tasting notes from 2/2014. felsenpils (183) - Sacramento, California, USA - APR 1, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 1, 2014 12 ounce bottle. Pours black with off-white foam and good retention. The aroma is clean, but I miss the esters found in an English porter like Fuller´s. Pretty good taste with a cacao aftertaste. NIce clean bitterness, but perhaps a bit too much. I like this beer and think that it is one of Summit´s best, just not quite as elegant as an authentic English porter. The lines between robust Porter and dry Stout seems to converge here. That being said, I have this beer side by side with Deschutes Black Butte Porter and I must say that both the aroma and taste of the Summit Porter are more distinctive and complex than the beer from Oregon.

Really nice roasted malt and coffee taste in this one. Really nice bitter chocolate note in the finish.
