COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
When we set out to make Nib Smuggler, we wanted to create a chocolate beer that was intensely chocolatey. So, we sourced the most potent, whole cocoa nibs we could find from South America, along with real vanilla beans for some added contrast. Flavors of chocolate, vanilla, and cream combine to create this rich, compelling chocolate porter.

Defreni (2649) - Husum, DENMARK - MAY 5, 2014
Fad på CBC: Lige ovenpå en af de dårligste øl på festivalen får man så fra samme bryggeri en rigtig lækker øl. Enorm vanilie og chokolade dog uden at det bliver kvalmt eller for meget. I det hele taget en anderledes men rigtig lækker øl.
