COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Everyone loves a good ninja, and we’re 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 we’d 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.

On tap @ Asheville Pizza. Very dark brown, light tan head. Flavor is sweet malt. Chalky far roast. Unique. A bit of smoke. Loads of chocolate malt in the finish. Hints of coffee and caramel. Nice wooded hop character. Rich deep roasted malt nose. Nice caramelized sugar aroma.

Truly art in a glass! Chocolately roasty aroma with a hint of hops. Easy drinking and well balanced. Looking forward to a second glass!

Chocolate, roasty aroma, dark in color, thick caramel head, as it warms you get a slight smokey flavor and finishes smoeth and chocolatey, low carbonation. Drinks like a Dry Irish Stout really.

3 Oz sample at Bonnaroo. Really great porter, very roasty and chocolatey tastes, still was light enough to drink in the heat. I love this beer and wished I could find it up north, great porter

Pour was a dark deep brown with a tan head. Good lacing. Aroma of chocolate and roast. Flavor the same, some nuts and smoke. Smooth and silky. Just a very nice porter.

Beer #7 Asheville trip. Another solid beer, and probably my actual favorite at Asheville Pizza and Brewing. There were an unusually high number of really good porters in the city. Black. Aroma and flavors matched. Loads of chocolate, but not bitter in nature, toffee, and then a nice mint note on the finish. I’m guessing now that I read the description that this was from the Northern Brewer. Good stuff.

Draft sampler pours dark brown with a tan head. Aroma of chocolate and a hint of spice. Taste is much of the same. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
