A most excellent porter from Summit. Pours a deep dark brown with thin traces of light coming through. Rich tight bubbled head that turns into a thin tan foam layer with great clinging lacing. Chocolate and dark roasted coffee comes through on the nose, VERY NICE. Taste is up front deep roasted grains with coffee, bittersweet chocolate, and a excellent earth background with very subtle bittering hops. Beer has a great mouthfeel that is lightly carbonated and smooth from what I would guess to be an addition of oatmeal. An aplus in the porter category and an old favorite.
