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.

Salmoniform (1272) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - AUG 24, 2014
Poured from bottle to glass. Dark brown hue with brown head. Aroma is huge chocolate, vanilla, milk caramel, toffee. Mouthfeel is ok with a medium body and smooth carbonation. Taste is sweet throughout but not overly cloying with a good astringentness in the following. Overall this brew was pretty good...aroma was amazing.

CBC Session 4. Opaque dark brown beer, tidy pale tan head. Palate is light and dry with fine minerally carbonation. Chocolate powder accentuated dark malts, mildly sweet. Not much else going on here. Light dry finish. Pleasant enough.

(on tap @ Mikkeller & Friends) Pours a deep brown with toffee head. Decent retention and lace. Aroma is chocolate and vanilla. Creamy texture, medium carbonation, full body and a roasted, chocolate bitter finish. Flavour is pretty loyal to the aroma with added bitterness in the finish. Quite good but overshadowed by my previous experience with the Maple Bacon Coffee Porter and perhaps chocolate porters become a bit too perfumey for me. I feel the same way about the Samuel Smith Organic Chocolate Stout for example.
