Pours a deep dark brown, settles into the glass while blackening as speaker foam - fabulous head about an inch high and is a interesting light brown hue close to the color of bread crust. Speaking of crust, the head itself is crusty and lumpy with divets at first then settled slowly to a thin foam, leaves super curtains of lace. Smell is roasty of chocolate and coffeeish sweet. Taste is openly roasty and slightly burnt malts, has a sweet chocolatey tone and a bit coffee-like in its dryness. Smooth throughout and speaks a bit of bitter chocolate and hops. Super dark and rich - packed with nice robust flavors. Full medium body, texture attaching unique, nicely sweet & bitter drying hints. Summit's number one brew for sure. One smooth drinkin' robustin' porter. Nice, deep, and bitter, yum!

A - Pours dark brown, almost black. Only a little light gets through the glass. One finger, tan (coffee like) head that is fluffy and pillowy.

S - Roasted black malts, stale coffee, slight chocolate smell.

T - Starts with bittersweet baker's chocolate, then moves into slightly bitter roasted malt. Finishes with a light coffee taste. Very little aftertaste.

M - Medium bodied, slightly sticky. Good carbonation.

D - Easy drinker. I could easily spend a night drinking this.
