COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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 can’t 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!

Dark brown, almost black, huge frothy head. Aroma is loaded with citrus hops, hints of chocolate and roast. Flavor much the same, with some butter through the backend. Creamy smooth mouthfeel. Butter detracts a bit, but otherwise well done.

Bottle: The aroma consists of chocolate, butterscotch, light grapefruit, and faint roasted coffee. It pours a dark brown with a small beige head that quickly fades to a film. The flavor starts with chocolate and light citrus. It finishes with grapefruit, roast, and a touch of butterscotch that hangs around in the aftertaste. Medium bodied with mild carbonation.
