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.

Draft sampler pours dark brown with a tan head. Aroma of chocolate and a hint of spice. Taste is much of the same. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nate (3998) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 8, 2016
From can (5/16/15). Mild hoppy metallic nose, sweet and roasty malt, light caramel. Dark black-brown clear with light tan lacing head. Medium body with medium-high carbonation. Starts sweet with chocolate and roast malt, light molasses and some vanilla. Nice rounded sweet finish with mild hoppy bitterness. Roasty bitter after. A nice porter.

brokensail (15271) - San Leandro, California, USA - DEC 9, 2015
On tap @ Barley’s - Asheville. Dark brown in color with a khaki head. There’s a good bit of roasted malts, coffee, and chocolate/cocoa powder. Slight sweetness to it. Maybe a touch of burnt toast, too. There’s some nutty sweetness along with toasted malts and a hint of molasses. Decent enough bitterness of roasted malts and the associated coffee/chocolate characteristics. It’s decent enough.

A decent porter overall, nothing too special though. Pours a deep black with a tan head. Smells of nuttiness and cream, coffee. Taste is similar, quite creamy, full-bodied with coffee throughout. Had on tap at the brewery.

Pour was a dark deep brown with a tan head. Good lacing. Aroma of chocolate and roast. Flavor the same, some nuts and smoke. Smooth and silky. Just a very nice porter.

Draft at the Coxe Ave location. Poured a dark brown color with a small tan head. Aroma was lots of roasted malts, some light coffee. Toasted, roasted and lightly smoked. Flavor had a nice roast character with a light milk chocolate, creamy finish.

radio_nowhere (1348) - Maryland, USA - AUG 21, 2015
Draft sample at their brewpub, opaque dark brown color with tan head. Aroma notes of roasted malt, chocolate, coffee and light smoke. Taste adds milk chocolate, char, brown sugar and slight nuttiness. Medium body, low-moderate carbonation, creamy with roast finish. Pretty chocolaty sweet porter, good.

It pours black even when held up to the light. I leaves lacing with a healthy head. There are aromas of chocolate, coffee, and roasted malts. The main flavoring is coffee and roasted malts with hints of chocolate.

nasmith003 (207) - Virginia, USA - JUL 11, 2015
Light nut aroma and opaque dark brown color. Stout head lasts a while. Sweet malty base that is slightly tempered by the hops. Finishes lingers a bit too long.
