COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

magsinva (846) - Virginia, USA - AUG 27, 2011
Tap at Asheville brewing - pours a dark brown with a off white head. Served too cold, so I’m not getting alot on the nose other than chocolate and malt. Taste is smokey bitterness that gently lingers. Palate is astringent and smooth, weird. Overall an average porter.

3 Oz sample at Bonnaroo. Really great porter, very roasty and chocolatey tastes, still was light enough to drink in the heat. I love this beer and wished I could find it up north, great porter
