I guess I don't get this one...gonna have to try it again, I LOVE summit! Even their last union series "session Meridian Belgian pale" I thought was really good, but this is the perfect example of why I don't usually buy a whole 6er of a new beer I haven't tried, even when by one of my fav breweries. From the reviews I DEFINATELY need to try this one again but I am not agreeing one bit with any of the awesome sounding reviews on this beer thus far.
A: best thing about this beer, very oily black in appearance with a nice 1 inch khaki head.
S: im not getting much of the hops that I was expecting for a 70 i.b.u. stout... I don't get any of the normal roasted malt aromas or chocolate or coffee aromas that are typical of normal stouts, especially one with this high a.b.v.
T: same as the aroma....very, very disappointing no hops, no roast malt, no coffe or chocolate, really nothing to speak of as far as flavors go, all I taste is carbonation which seems pretty high for a stout, on the good side the 8.5% is completely masked, but at least some booziness would give this beer some flavor.
M: some oily slickness which is a tad redeeming but too carbonated I'd say medium high to high low.
O.A.: hands down the worst and most disappointing summit beer I have ever had. its funny that everyone else who reviewed this beer wished they had more, I on the other hand don't have any idea what I'm going to do with my other 5...

Pours a jet black with a frothy chocolate head that slowly dissipates.
Coffee, tar, and nutty malt form the initial aroma, with chocolate and licorice adding complexity.
Flavor is sweeter than anticipated. Rich roast malt forms the backbone, with a hint of char adding bitterness at the finish. Dark cherries underlie a chocolatey, nutty profile.
Body is a touch light, with carbonation on the low side. Alcohol warmth does not overwhelm.
Great malt complexity. The dark fruit really sets off this beer. Wish there were more export stouts available. Love the contrast of roast and chocolate. Could use a touch more body.
