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.

kathouse (1739) - LAS VEGAS, Nevada, USA - FEB 3, 2016
Pours from the bottle near pitch black with a light tan foam. Chocolate, vanilla, and a rich roast aroma. Some coffee like bitterness hits first followed by the rich chocolate. Good body but not a great deal of sweetness.

madelfonatree (317) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 2, 2016
Bottled 11/24/2015 enjoyed in a Mad Elf tulip. Look - A lot of sediment, it turns the dark brown body almost reddish brown. No lacing. No head left after a while. Head is tan when there. 4 Smell - Coke. Chocolate. Sweet. Raspberry. Taste - Chocolate. Coke. Dr. Pepper. Sweet. Feel - Not carbonated. Milky. Overall - Crazy murkiness. One of the most pop forward beers Ive had. Not something to write home about. Milk stouts have really stopped appealing to me.

SanfordBrewer (1518) - Sanford, Florida, USA - JAN 26, 2016
Opaque black with a creamy tan head. Medium-full body with a malto-dextrine-like film, high carbonation.

aroma: coffee, cacao, roast grain acidity, woody vanilla, faint floral hops.

taste: coffee, faint cacao, roast grain acidic/astringent bite, woody vanilla.

much more stout-like than porter. cacao is mostly buried by dark roasted grain elements. Vanilla is more prominent, but rather sharp and woody (I am not a fan of madagascan vanilla).
