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.

Although labeled as a porter by the brewer, I think rate beer has it right by classifying this under a sweet stout. This is really a decadent beer without being too cloying. The cocoa, vanilla, and almost milky creaminess combine together harmoniously while touch of bitterness comes around naturally, balancing the beer out. Overall this beer is rich but not too much so to have another.

32 ounce growler pours a very dark black with hints of reddish color. A tan head lasts about a minute. Big chocolate and vanilla aromas extremely full-bodied with residual sweetness chocolate and vanilla flavors with a nice amount of hop bitterness. Leaves a nice oil he feeling on your lips. Another very nicely done beer By Funky Buddha.

Growler shared at Woodshop 8. Pours a clear, deep red. Weaker foam. Nose is peanut shell, mild plastic. BMan described it as a new basketball. Taste is hazelnut tea, weak coffee. Palate is thin. Not sure what happened here.

Aroma is yahoo. Chocolate watery aroma. Sweet forward with a milk chocolate back bone. For 6 percent pretty amazing. Nice balance I would get if local. Thin fading head. Only complaint a big to sweet. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Damico (2948) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 5, 2013
Pours unclear thick dark cocoa with a big creamy lacey beige cocoa head. Aroma is light nutty vanilla wafers. Flavors brings sweet dark cacao nibs on a pure clean and lightly creamy body. It is not too roasted or sweet at all, but a nice balance of malts and dark cacao.
