COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Everyone loves a good ninja, and were 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 wed 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.

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.
