Beer pours a deep ruby, near brown with a sizable head, very attractive.
Aroma is mostly of prunes and alcohol, kind of weak.
Taste is dominated by deep roasted malt, dried figs/prunes, a touch of hop bitterness in the finish. very solid flavor profile.
Mouthfeel seems a bit thin to me, carbonation also light.
Overall, a very solid offering and a welcome component of the winter sampler pack, nothing that blows your socks off but definitely a pleasant pour.

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.
