COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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.

PorterPounder (7895) - 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,
