Summit Winter Ale
Summit Brewing Company, Minnesota
---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.

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%
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!!
Carry On Citizens!!!
