Not one to let me down, I had a feeling Summit would have a nice winter seasonal. This is a fantastic strong ale. Abundant roasted aroma very rich and appealing. Awesome pour amber/brown color with a long lasting one inch light tan head and layers upon layers of lacing. Mouthfeel isn't as full as expected but it's smooth and gratifying. Flavor is a half step under the great aroma. Very malty almost drinks like a porter, if it were darker I would be fooled. Some smokiness with mild flavors of chocolate, licorice, and coffee. Small hop presence. Overall a great beer any time of the year.

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
