Agree with dev. Black with a thin head. A bit dry but nothing extraordinary either way. Decent easy drinking quaff

Black with a thin tan head. Dry and malty, nothing extravagant, but a good representation of its style.

Ninja Porter looks the part: a medium, rocky, light-tan head perches atop an effervescent, darkest brown body with sullen orange highlights; head retention is brief, and lacing is fair, consisting of complex rotten bands and arabesques. The nose is a deeply sweet, enticing blend of cola, cocoa, and molasses with hints of toffee and milk chocolate, all topped by significant alcohol overtones. The palate is not as rich and complex as the nose would predict, but it is nonetheless quite pleasing: an undifferentiated dark malt flavor that touches on cola, milk chocolate and molasses, with sweet and bitter in almost perfect balance. The finish is a modest hit of bitter cocoa and a nip from the carbonation; the linger is a very slightly bitter, thin chocolate flavor that lasts for awhile. Mouthfeel is light for the body, as befits the style, and the texture is slightly sticky, medium creamy and medium-peppery from the lively carbonation. This porter drinks very well for how expressive the dark malt is. (12 oz can, no code date)
