Summit Brewing Dark Infusion Blasts Off For A Limited Time

Back by popular demand, Summit Brewing Company has released Summit Dark Infusion Coffee Milk Stout for a limited time.

First brewed in late 2016 as a limited, one-time-only beer, Summit Dark Infusion — the only Summit Unchained Series beer ever brought back — now returns due to universal consumer demand. It comes in peace for all mankind.

A rich, full-bodied imperial milk stout with sweet, roasted notes, Dark Infusion features a gravity-defying grain bill of six different malts plus kettle additions of lactose for additional sweetness and body. Balanced by Pilgrim and Fuggle hops from the U.K., renowned throughout the cosmos for their rounded bitterness and spice, Dark Infusion is made even bolder and more complex with the infusion of smooth, cold-brewed coffee at the time of packaging — with the Milky Way’s best Brazilian beans provided by Saint Paul’s Blackeye Roasting Company.

“Complemented by coffee rather than overpowered,” says Summit’s Head Brewer Damian McConn, “traces of caramel, graham cracker and dark chocolate round out the flavor profile” of this highly anticipated and limited beer.
