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.

Tognetta (849) - So Paulo, BRAZIL - MAR 21, 2017
Marrom bem escura, turva, espuma de mdia formao e pouca persistncia. No aroma bastante cacau/chocolate, baunilha, em segundo plano coco queimado. Paladar de mdio dulor caramelado e leve amargor do torrado. Corpo mdio e cremoso, mdia carbonatao. Final mantm a potncia do dulor e leve amargor, continua evidenciando a baunilha e cacau mais que o coco. timo exemplar do estilo.

Pours mahogany tinged black into a shaker. Mocha head with medium retention recedes to skim surface. Sweet milk chocolate aromas. Dry with sweet milk chocolate and soy upfront turning to mild pumpernickel in the sharp, medium-length finish.

Pours a dark brown with a thin mocha head. Aroma of chocolate, chocolate milk and marshmallows. Taste follows, a bit too thin but tasty nonetheless

mathieuc (3791) - Qubec, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 9, 2017
Pours a dark brown with red highlights. On top sits a white rim that leaves some lacing. Nose is of powdered cocoa, Quik. Taste is more dry powdered cocoa, chocolatey. Just too sweet and chocolatey for me, really. Body and carbonation are moderate. Really similar to Samuel Smiths Organic Chocolate Stout, I can confidently say that I would never crave it again. Meh.

Pitch black pour with ruby highlights and a short beige head and decent retention. Minimal lacing. Clean and smooth dark roasted cocoa and malt flavors. 6.3 ABV is well hidden.

Aggie80 (818) - Michigan, USA - FEB 25, 2017
I really like this beer! Dark pour with a tan head and good lacing. Strong aroma of chocolate malt that matches the flavor. Very smooth mouthfeel and the rich flavors are sweet and enjoyable.

czar (8749) - Qubec, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 17, 2017
on tap at the ginger man, boston. unclear medium dark brown pour, orange tint, with a small reviving light beige cap offering some retention and lacing. cocoa powder, milk chocolate essence - artificial flavours; semi-sweet spicy chocolate, coconut, raspberry flavor, sweet coffee - lactose. moderately low carbonation, medium body - very oily; sweet boring yet very smooth finish. never subtle. always artificial and too sweet. whatever.
