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.

---from bottle to stemmed porter glass---
Dark copper, more red around the edges, three fingers of creamy/light tan head that will seemingly last forever, good lacing.
Pretty weak on the nose. Nutty.
Caramel-y malts with hints of light coffee. Bright citrusy hops shine at the end of each sip.
Much lighter than expected. Dare I say watery? Malt flavor lingers, god amount of bitter for this beer.
Better and worse than I thought. Tastes great, but mouth feel is a bit off. Looks gorgeous.
