Ska – Nefarious Ten Pin Porter

Ska is based in Durango, CO and they make a number of different styles.  One that has been sitting in my beer-fridge for some time is Nefarious Ten Pin Porter (8% IBU and 60 IBU) that is an Imperial version of Ten Pin Porter.  I am very glad I selected it and now I have to replace it.  A nice touch, is the waxed bottle too.

Baltic Porter Description - - BeerAdvocate

Appearance – Black with no head poured into a globe glass.
Aroma – Dark fruits, chocolate, coffee and rich malts.
Taste – Very well balanced and this beer is a great example of this style – one of my favorites – as nothing is over the top.  One can detect sweetness that is nicely balanced by bitterness – the key is balance.  Then there are coffee, chocolate and dark fruit overtones of date and cheery.
Overall – A – Ska does a great job with Nefarious.  I am not sure if you will be a better bowler, but you’ll enjoy bowling if you have one of these.
Website description – "Nobody bowls better sober.  No one is suggesting you get drunk; merely stating the facts.  Our extra strong Imperial Porter will make you better at bowling.  King of the alley – this Imperial Porter reigns supreme.  Creamy, chocolaty sweet, with hints of coffee and bing cherries, the Nefarious is wickedly outrageous."
