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.

Ernest (7600) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 24, 2017
Can (Feb 24, 2017 canning). Head is initially small, frothy/fizzy, brown, mostly/fully diminishing. Body is dark brown to black. Aroma is moderately malty (chocolate syrup, roasted grain), with a note of vanilla. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, fizzy/lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Very simple aroma, and kinda sweet and flabby in the mouth. Pretty dull and forgettable, but not theres not too much wrong with it otherwise.

Not an unusual or surprising porter, but a solid one. Pours dark, chocolate brown with little head. The aroma is coffee, chocolate, porter malts. The flavor is the same, but it closes with a slight but nice hoppy twang. Id drink this again.

AirForceHops (6957) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 17, 2016
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.
