COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our search for the finest cocoa nibs brought us to the far corners of the earth. We tried them all: raw nibs from Guatemala; roasted jewels from the West Indies. But the most potent, intensely chocolatey ones we found hailed from the far-away reaches of Brazil. But there was one problem. We had to get them back. So with sacks in tow, we stole away with those precious nibs and smuggled them, along with fragrant Madagascar vanilla beans, deep into the reaches of a pitch black milk porter. And so, Nib Smuggler Chocolate Milk Porter was born.

brokensail (12362) - Orange County, California, USA - NOV 1, 2014
Bottle @ Pat’s. Just about black in color with a thin layer of off-white foam. This could easily be the most chocolatey beer I’ve ever had. Smells of chocolate, cocoa powder, and cocoa liqueuer. Some roast, a hint of coffee, and some dark fruit. There’s a nice sweetness of vanilla and milk chocolate on the tongue. Bitter cocoa powder/nibs. Some chocolate syrup, dark fruit. and toasted nuts.
