We Heard You Screaming…
First introduced in 2016, our smoothest, boldest brew is back by universal demand. A rich, full-bodied imperial milk stout with sweet, roasted notes from six specialty malts, Dark Infusion features kettle additions of lactose for additional sweetness and body. Balanced by Pilgrim and Fuggle hops from the U.K., Dark Infusion is made even more complex and bold with the infusion of smooth, cold-brewed coffee. Complemented by coffee rather than overpowered, traces of caramel, graham cracker and dark chocolate round out this highly anticipated and limited beer.
Originally intended as a one-time-only, limited-release beer, Summit Dark Infusion is the first Unchained Series beer we’ve ever brewed more than once. In 2020, we’ve updated our recipe to featuring cold-brew provided by Minneapolis’ Big Watt Beverage. Summit Dark Infusion’s return wouldn’t have been possible without the feedback, enthusiasm and patience of Summit fans. Now, go reward yourselves with some beer.
