Ninja Porter

Name – Ninja Porter
Country – United States
Type – American Porter

Appearance – Poured a dark black color with a nice sized slightly off white head.

Smell – Smoke is the first thing I pick up with a little bit of black licorice.  Some roasted malts can be picked up too.

Taste – Very smoked tasted with some roasted malts in the back but has an overall sweetness to it as well.

A couple friends of mine picked this one up for me on their trip to Asheville, NC.  I found this a lot more enjoyable that the Stone Smoked Porter I had recently.  The licorice notes are a lot more subdued here.  The smokey flavor really stands out and would make this a great beer for BBQ.

Overall Grade – B

    So I was whipping through Google reader articles when I saw “Ninja Porter”. I read your review thinking that the combination of ninjas and beer was pretty awesome (ninjas rule).

    While the beer looks decent, and I like the review, you should have definitely thrown in some ninja references. 🙂

      In retrospect I definitely should have added more ninja references.
