COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Bottle, thanks Jared! Luscious and intoxicating aroma of sweet chocolate, lactose sugar, vanilla and some roasted malt. Pours dark brown with half a finger of mocha brown head that has excellent retention and lacing. Starts with sweet milk sugar and chocolate flavors to go along with a silky smooth mouthfeel and rich, full body. Finishes extremely smooth with a hint of roasted malt and nice vanilla flavor blending with the other flavors nicely. Wonderful milk stout!

Difficult to disparage, because this is one of the finest dessert beers to try. A milk porter with chocolate flavoring is simply irresistible. Could not drink enough of this. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a one finger khaki head that fades quickly leaving no lace. Black color, no highlights. Medium carbonation and medium bodied. Cocoa and vanilla nose and flavor follows with sweet cocoa and vanilla, seriously one-dimensional. $3.90 for a 12oz bottle from Colonial Spirits Acton, Ma.

AirForceHops (7895) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - APR 30, 2017
12 oz. bottle thanks to jcwattsrugger. Pours a dark brown color with a medium creamy tan head that fades slowly. Aroma of roast malt, chocolate and coffee.
Light to medium body but right for a porter. Flavor is a solid amount of roasted malt, cocoa nibs and vanilla bean. The finish is sweet with a chocolate milk finish. Pretty good and spot on even for the style.

3.6
Chalumeaux (1758) - Middleton, Massachusetts, USA - APR 30, 2017
Poured from bottle thanks AirforceHops nice cola color with a mocha head and nice lacing. Aromas of chocolate milk vanilla and malt. Taste is creamy cocoa vanilla nice mouthfeel is thin for a stout but fine for the porter it is.

3.8
decaturstevo (6343) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - APR 28, 2017
Brown black pour. Aroma is dominated by chocolate and then a toucho vanilla. Flavor is sweet chocolate and the vanilla. This chocolate tries to take you all the way to dark chocolate bitter but the sweet won’t let it.
