Dark beer with ruby hints around the edge of my chalice. Cocoa powder nose with a thin, whispy tan head. The flavor is sweet malts with a faint roasted coffee taste and a little cocoa in the finish. Very subtle hop bitterness. It seemed a little thin to me, but then the description admits that. Very easy to drink. Thanks to slikwily for the bottle.

hopscotch (10944) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 26, 2004
Very dark, crystal clear, ruby ale with a fizzy, tan head. The aroma is malty, chocolatey and roasted. Notes of coffee, hazelnut, milk chocolate and vanilla. The well-balanced flavor mirrors the nose. Medium-bodied with a silky mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Lengthy, bitter, roasted finish. Nice porter!

Not much taste and the thick syrupy consistency of a slushy. Nice color. A bit of hops and a mid-sip chocolate roast. Thanks to Pigfoot for a full Summit line of samples.

Thanks to slikwily for this one! Coffee, Cocoa, Espresso in the nose. Thick tan head that is well lasting. Taste is bitter coffee and bitter chocolate, slighly thinner then I would have liked. Its like a walk through the forest, and you can smell that piney smell, overall a above average porter that I was glad to have tried.

Not a traditional porter. This beer is more like a lighter-bodied Guinness. I find it thoroughly drinkable as well as refreshing. I prefer this over the sweet-finishing porters, but that is just my personal taste.

Dark brown with a quick diminishing head. Very good roasted and smokey flavor with hints of chocolate. Slightly acidic.

I loved this beer. It's a nice introduction to the style. Roasted malt, chocolate, smokey flavors. Even and predictable. A very Tasty porter. This is my favorite summit followed by the pale ale.

3fourths (9296) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 22, 2004
Deep black with a medium brown fizzy head that dies quickly. Smoky blck licorice sharp aroma, like oil, some hoppy pine and some mint. Pinecones come to mind. Thick and syrupy and a good smooth body. Black and smoky, with small hints of sweet fruit, the finish is an abrasive smoky oil flavor. Impressive. Some cherry evident in the long-lasting finish.
