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.

GnarlyGnome (852) - Fairfield, Ohio, USA - MAR 8, 2012
Draft, sampler: a tad boring, pours dark brown with a tasty looking tan head. It smells chocolaty, and roasty, but leaves you wishing for it in the flavor.

magsinva (1207) - Virginia, USA - AUG 27, 2011
Tap at Asheville brewing - pours a dark brown with a off white head. Served too cold, so Im not getting alot on the nose other than chocolate and malt. Taste is smokey bitterness that gently lingers. Palate is astringent and smooth, weird. Overall an average porter.
