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 - http://beeradvocate.com/beer/style/80 - 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."
