Everyone loves a good ninja, and we’re no exception. This beer has chopped, flipped and posed its way to its pedestal as one of our most popular and asked-about offerings. "How?" you may ask. Part of it is pure stealth power and part of it is pure secret, and we’d have to kill you. But the other part is the rich, satisfying body and hard-hitting chocolate finish with notes of coffee and caramel. Carefully measured quantities of Mt. Hood, Northern Brewer and Cascade hops added with masterful precision balance it all out.

DukeBrewDevil (732) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - MAR 12, 2009
Bomber. Pitch black with visible light sneaking through. Smallish tan head. Very coffee forward aroma and flavor, lots of roastiness and a little bit of chocolate. Not the most complex beer, but a solid, standard porter.

travita (4754) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAR 11, 2009
Bottle thanks to bullzeye. The smell is roasty, malts, coffee, chocolate like you would expect from a porter but then adds grapefruit and hops. The look is dark brown, clearish, with a good beige head. The taste is malts, sweet, grapefruit, some hops, and roasted malts.

BMan1113VR (7914) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 7, 2009
Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Pours a very dark brown hued body with a light brown head. Aroma is strongly hoppy for a porter, with a ton of citrus, dominated by grapefruit. Some chocolate and sugars backing the porter hop assault. Taste is on the watery side of things. Hoppy still, but not as much so. Chocolate, and if I read my notes right turbinado. Light bubbles.

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - FEB 20, 2009
Bottle shared by Ding at the Brick Store. Pours a dark chocolate brown with a small, fleeting off-white head that leaves no lacing. The aroma is subdued and mostly dominated by dark roasted malts with only hints of chocolate and coffee in the background. The taste has a slightly more pronounced chocolate sweetness that balances the smoked malts more than the aroma would suggest. The finish is dry and slightly smoky, possibly with some coffee bitterness though very faint. The mouthfeel is very light for the style with less carbonation than I expected. This is an average porter that doesn’t stand out in any way and is very light for the style. Not bad but nothing memorable.
