After finishing the Summit Pilsener, I moved on to the Summit Great Northern Porter.

The porter had an immediate and clear chocolate taste. This taste, however, eased off a bit as I drank more.

After returning to shore, I finished the beer and it still tasted like a porter, but had a slight sour/watered taste. Overall, it was good, but the Summit Pilsener was more consistent.

Originally named after London market workers who popularized this brew, we dubbed our Porter with a nod to the majestic railway stretching from St. Paul to Seattle. Roasted malts offer up coffee notes leading to a slightly sweet, chocolatey finish. All aboard!
