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.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 26, 2011
Bottle shared by Rustyham. Pours deep brown black with a dissipating brown head. Aroma of dried cocoa and ale esters. Medium to full bodied with semi soft carbonation. Flavor of chocolate, dark roasted malts, and mild bittering hops. What made this one really interesting is that you picked up some nutshell flavors, and that it was not overly sweet. Semi dry finish. Very well done.
