Today we are drinking two seasonals out of Asheville; the Holly King out of the Green Man Brewery and the Ninja Bread Man Porter out of the Asheville Brewing Company (ABC). Green Man describes the Holly King this way, “Nine full months of barrel aging deliver unrestrained oak and bourbon flavors. Tasty hints of chocolate, vanilla and tobacco round out the complex notes. The ABC folks say that Asheville’s favorite dark beer has a new twist – “working together with our very talented chef, Josh Dillard, the brew crew cooked up caramelized ginger, vanilla beans, toasted cinnamon, pureed raisins, and molasses into a delicious concoction. We took this tasty mix and blended it with a batch of our gold medal winning Ninja Porter. It’s like dunking a cookie in a pint. Ninja Bread Man is a sweet beer with incredible aromas and holds the amazing qualities that make Ninja the best Porter around!
