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.

rondphoto (3170) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - MAR 4, 2011
Typical porter color with large head and full lacing. Taste is one-trick, mostly bitter chocolate, needing no hops to increase bitter in the finish. Drinkable, but not memorable.

beernovice39 (3270) - Montana, USA - FEB 9, 2011
Draft. Pours a dark brown with a thin tan head. Scent is light (oh no) roasted malts. Taste is the same, decent but not anything exciting.

dnstone (2398) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JAN 9, 2011
Light crystal malt aroma. Deep brown in color. Basically a run-of-the-mill porter.

LilBeerDoctor (3567) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 1, 2011
On tap at the brewpub. Pours black with a small tan head. Aroma of chocolate and smooth roasted malt. Flavor of chocolate, diacetyl, and roasted malt. Kind of bland and the diacetyl was off-putting (although not too dominant). A drinkable beer but it took me forever to finish the pint. 6/4/6/3/13 [3.2/5]

Dickinsonbeer (5075) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 30, 2010
Bottle. Pours a deep woody brown nearing black with a thin lasting beige head. Aroma is nutty, old earthy espresso and coffee hints, big chocolate, toast, and osme herbs. Flavor is nice nutty toasted malts, dark chocolate, tootsie roll sweetness, earth, light roast and coffee with light herbal and some citrus hops. Mild bitterness in the end.

bubbleflubber (2072) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - AUG 16, 2010
Pours cola-esque, with ruby fringes and a thin, retentive soapy head that leaves light soap lacing. The nose is of marshmallow, roasted coffee and dark fruity esters. The flavors are dry, smoky, of roasted coffee, slight citrus rinds, bitter chocolate on top of a deep malt base. The finish is of roasted smoked bitters and a hint of citric acid. A creamy mouthfeel contrasts a zesty carbonation. The body is light and the palate is very smooth. Decent porter indeed.
