Could I get some waffles with this syrup?

I have been drinking this stuff every winter since ’96. Yet unfortunately I think this tradition will have to soon be coming to an end. I am not sure if Summit has simply gotten too macro with their microbrews, but the delicate black delight of yesteryear has simply gotten too god damned thick. I used to easily consume quite a few of these in one sitting but I nearly exploded after just two (yeah I know I am kind of a weenie).  Is it that my tastes have simply changed? Maybe but all I know is that next winter I will look at forward to the next man’s beer as opposed to this one.

  1. “This is one of the few beers I have consumed every winter since it was first brewed.”

    How old were you in 1989? That’s hardcore. 🙂 Summit first brewed this in 1987 as a bigger beer and moved to the current version in 1989.

    I don’t think it’s changed a lot in the past 5 years, though I know that my tastes have changed quite a bit over the course of time. Sometimes it’s tough to keep that in perspective. I’m occasionally apt to say “Was that always so ______?” Only to have others tell me that really hadn’t changed.

  2. I’m an idiot. I have certainly not consumed this since 1987 or for that matter 1989. I would have been 7 and 9 respectively. I guess I should do some research before I write this stuff. I first consumed a Summit Winter in 1996. I had not seen it before then. But hell I was sixteen then so what do I know? I am definitely going to have to change that review. Thanks for the heads up and keeping this site honest!
