12 oz bottle, a few months past BB date, served in a snifter.
Pours clear but nearly opaque ruby-brown. The light tan head settles down to a thick ring and partial top coat but leaves full coating on a robust looking the side of the glass.
Aroma: rather floral and unlike the flavor, a little boozy. Also more spicy than the taste.,
T: Nicely rich with chocolate, dark bread, dark fruit and a touch of coffee. More coffee in the lingering dark roasted malt aftertaste. Very good use of light spicing but a touch too sweet before the finish.
Mouthfeel: medium-full bodied; very smooth with soft, medium carbonation. Semi-dry finish sometimes felt just a little too thin.
O: very enjoyable and flavorful that resembles a Belgian porter. Recommended.

Reviewed from notes.
Dark brown with a tan head, with nice retention and lacing. The aroma is very nice with caramel, cocoa, and roasted malt. Very nice for a cold winter night.
Has a nice mildly sweet flavor with caramel, cocoa, roasted malt, a little bit of coffee, and a subtle nutty flavor. Pairs very nicely with a French Dip sandwich.
Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Somewhat creamy as an on tap offering. Smooth and easy to drink. Very nice on tap. Will have to pick up some bottles of this.
Serving type: on-tap

Summit winter ale pours with a ruby brown color thats quite dark.
On the pour i wasn't able to get much of a head going at all. Basically surface smudes and such.
The aroma was quite malty with subtle hints of spices.
The malts in the taste have a vienna feel. Very grainy and toasted. I think I almoat taste some smoke in there also.
The feel is course and gritty on the palate.
It was a good beer...
but I really didn't dig it too much.
