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.

Opaque black with a creamy tan head. Medium-full body with a malto-dextrine-like film, high carbonation.

aroma: coffee, cacao, roast grain acidity, woody vanilla, faint floral hops.

taste: coffee, faint cacao, roast grain acidic/astringent bite, woody vanilla.

much more stout-like than porter. cacao is mostly buried by dark roasted grain elements. Vanilla is more prominent, but rather sharp and woody (I am not a fan of madagascan vanilla).

Bottle at home, into snifter. Aroma is pure milk chocolate, lactose, nestle chocolate chips. Flavor is sweet chocolate, a touch of roast, sweetness from the lactose. Very nice.

Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate chocolate, light vanilla, and a hint of licorice. It pours a dark brown with some orange highlights and a small beige head that quickly fades to a minimal film outlined by a thin ring. The flavor starts with moderate-heavy dark chocolate and cocoa. The finish has light-moderate vanilla with a hint of coffee and licorice. It’s medium bodied with light-moderate carbonation.

Pours coffee brown with a thin light tan head. Aroma features strong notes of cocoa and roast malt, and a hint of molasses. Flavor presents roast malt, cocoa, molasses, and a snippet of coffee. Body is firm, though fizz is fair to middlin’. Smuggle one down your pipes.

The aroma is chocolatey and roasted. The appearance is almost black. The taste is like the aroma with a bitter finish. The palate is average. Overall good but not great. Has flaws.

Definitely blurring the line between stout and porter. Heavy on the lactose sweetness and intense dark chocolate flavor. Tasty chocolate milk for adults.

Yeah....forgot this was a porter while I was drinking it. Very heavy on the chocolate (on the bitter/dark chocolate side), super sweet, with extra lactose in there. I was thinking this was a sweet/milk stout, but a "milk porter" makes sense. Dark black appearance. Not much head and on the flatter-feel side. Has some density and filling like an IPS, but only around 6%. A single of this was enough for me, as it’s quite pricey.
