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.
