3.45/5 rDev -7.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Pours out quite black with a half finger beige head with not too much retention. Smell is of dark fruit, prunes, with a slight bit of sweetness. Really no hops I sense from the nose. This is all the malt bill. Taste is a bit mellowed down from the smell except there is a tiny hop presence that isn't noticeable at the first part of the taste but definitely in the end -- nothing too bitter to be sure as this is really balanced well. Mouthfeel is fairly light. Overall I really liked this beer more than the last time I had it. Summit typically puts out good beers at least with their normal releases.

4/5 rDev +7.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Appearance is chestnut brown. Nice head - frothy, foamy and dense on the lips and mouth.
Mouth feel is creamy, rich, cool with sweetness and a slight (very slight) cocoa taste and aroma. This is beer #2 that I've tried from the Summit Winter Pack offering. It's head and shoulders above the 1st tasting of the Summit Red Ale.. Excellent Entry and a 6 pack will be on my stocking stuffer list to St. Nicholas. Top Rate!!

3.98/5 rDev +6.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4
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.
