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.

Truly art in a glass! Chocolately roasty aroma with a hint of hops. Easy drinking and well balanced. Looking forward to a second glass!

12 oz. can thanks going out to TAR on this one. Aroma is cocoa powder, weak roast, traces of coffee. Flavor is a a mirror image of the aroma. Low roasted roasted malt backbone. Body is right for a porter and the carbonation gave a smooth/ creamy texture. Pretty well made, standard Porter.

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 (16057) - Dublin, 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.

monk191 (1777) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 26, 2015
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.
