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.

bhensonb (14890) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 11, 2012
Bomber from Bruisin Ales. Pours pretty dark brown with a creamy frothy beige head that deconstructs in a weird way. Aromas of chocolate and burnt malt, with something suggesting a little sour - or maybe its coffee. Med minus body. Flavor is ashy chocolate with some burnt malt and coffee. Seems halfway between stout and porter. Maybe a little bit of lactose in the finish - or something that suggests that. Nice porter.
