Wolverine State Teenage Mutant Ninja Porter


Brewed by Wolverine State Brewing Company
Ann Arbor, Michigan USA
Style: Porter | Ratings: 2 | Special Seasonal | Alcohol: -
Using a full line-up of traditional English barleys, Maris Otter, British 2-row and chocolate malts in this brew give it autenticity but because we canít NOT put our Wolverine claw mark on it we loaded up on some American crystal malts to add depth then radically combined our gnarly concoction with over 20 pounds of hops--including U.K. fuggles, Centennial, Cascade and Willamette. The aroma of this brew is where the choreographed fight begins by combining chocolate, roast, and citrusy hops. While we COULD have called this a "Cascadian Dark Ale" or "American-Style Black IPA" but because we a traditional English Ale yeast to ferment it we like to think of it as a sublimely mutated ninja porter! So we gave it the most bodacious name we could think of! Cowabunga Dudes!
