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.

Bottle shared at Ratebeer Tokyo W & CB Tasting. Thanks Gregg P! Huge hot chocolate nose with clear cacao nib and vanilla notes. Slightly thin body, but the flavors come though so strong on the palate. Lots of cacao in here. Rich and palate-coating. Not overly sweet at all. Dry and lightly bitter cacao nib finish. Liked this one a lot.

Medium brown color. Big chocolate nib and vanilla nose. Sweetish but not too sweet. Tons of brownies and lingering vanilla finish. Very nice

KyotoLefty (8907) - Kyoto, JAPAN - FEB 9, 2016
Bottle at the Rate Beer Awards Festival Hotel Bottle Share. Nose of chocolate, coffee, vanilla. Very sweet vanilla, chocolate, and lactose creamy flavor. Too sweet and additive-infested for me.

App: pitch black with medium frothy moka, on retention, good lacing. Taste and palate: medium body, smooth, just a tiny tad watery, moderate carbonation, men sweetness, finish is sweet. Overall: good stuff. Wish it was maybe a bit more strong, but overall quite good. Well done

kathouse (1525) - Nevada, USA - FEB 3, 2016
Pours from the bottle near pitch black with a light tan foam. Chocolate, vanilla, and a rich roast aroma. Some coffee like bitterness hits first followed by the rich chocolate. Good body but not a great deal of sweetness.

madelfonatree (317) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 2, 2016
Bottled 11/24/2015 enjoyed in a Mad Elf tulip. Look - A lot of sediment, it turns the dark brown body almost reddish brown. No lacing. No head left after a while. Head is tan when there. 4 Smell - Coke. Chocolate. Sweet. Raspberry. Taste - Chocolate. Coke. Dr. Pepper. Sweet. Feel - Not carbonated. Milky. Overall - Crazy murkiness. One of the most pop forward beers I’ve had. Not something to write home about. Milk stouts have really stopped appealing to me.
