Even though I pass through Asheville a couple of times a year, I've never visited Asheville Pizza & Brewing Company. I was surprised to see three of their brews for sale in 22oz bottles at Bruisin' Ales this past week; I picked up the Ninja Porter and Shiva IPA for $4 each.

It's a little lighter than the thick, black liquid I'm used to seeing when pouring a porter, but once it gets in the glass the sheer density renders it opaque. No real head formed on this pour, but a smattering of soda-like bubbles appeared briefly. A deep inhalation reveals a faint whiff of dark fruit, but mostly one notices the normal burnt malt aroma so characteristic of porter beer. The flavor is delightfully dark with a medium richness of burnt malt essence. A bit of hop bitterness arrives toward the finish, but the aftertaste is mainly of dark-roasted coffee. Hmm, hmm. Perhaps I've had too many "imperial" porters to be impressed with this lighter style-the mouthfeel seems lean and bubbly-but I admit it is fun to drink and nice to ponder.

Poured from can. Appearance is dark brown with a thin tan head. Minimal lacing. Aroma is chocolate, caramel, and a bit of toast. Taste follows suit but a bit metallic and has notes of coffee and a slight hop bitterness. Medium body with moderate low carbonation. Overall a mediocre porter.

Serving type: can
