OG 14.6° Plato
On tap into a pint-ish glass.
Dark brown and clear with garnet highlights, and an off white to light brown colored, short lived head that left decent lacing.
Mainly spices with little to none malt aroma. The aroma was never strong.
Slight malty sweetness with spices riding on it, and some bitterness towards the end. The finish is smooth and medium with a long aftertaste of dark malts.
A little high on the carbonation, but good otherwise.
Factoring in the flavor, aroma, body and ABV, good, but not exceptional drinkability.
Serving type: on-tap

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.

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.
