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.

Cybercat (5830) - Georgia, USA - JAN 17, 2016
Pours coffee brown with a thin light tan head. Aroma features strong notes of cocoa and roast malt, and a hint of molasses. Flavor presents roast malt, cocoa, molasses, and a snippet of coffee. Body is firm, though fizz is fair to middlin’. Smuggle one down your pipes.

demmbonz (732) - Erin, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 10, 2016
Definitely blurring the line between stout and porter. Heavy on the lactose sweetness and intense dark chocolate flavor. Tasty chocolate milk for adults.

Yeah....forgot this was a porter while I was drinking it. Very heavy on the chocolate (on the bitter/dark chocolate side), super sweet, with extra lactose in there. I was thinking this was a sweet/milk stout, but a "milk porter" makes sense. Dark black appearance. Not much head and on the flatter-feel side. Has some density and filling like an IPS, but only around 6%. A single of this was enough for me, as it’s quite pricey.

smaynard6000 (1164) - Apopka, Florida, USA - JAN 9, 2016
Bottle. Pours a dark brown with small light brown head. Aroma is roasted coffee and chocolate. Mellow chocolate flavor with a touch of vanilla. Smooth on the palate with a somewhat sweet finish. Medium bodied and easy drinking. Very good.

juiceisloose (1491) - Windermere, Florida, USA - JAN 9, 2016
12 oz bottle. Pours nearly black with mahogany at the edges and topped by a small, smooth layer of tan colored foam that slowly settles to the body below and leaving streaks of lace around the glass. The aroma is really nice showing notes of rich, milk chocolate, toasted vanilla, and lactose followed by light roast and toasted caramel malt base. The flavor follows with the milk chocolate, dark malts, and toasted vanilla that is balanced out nicely by some earthy roast that adds just a touch of bitterness. Medium bodied and smooth with a slick mouthfeel and balanced carbonation that leads to a roasty and sweet cocoa finish. Really tasty milk Porter that is well executed. Funky Buddha never seems to disappoint.

S_Side_Smitty (773) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - JAN 9, 2016
UPDATED: JAN 10, 2016 Pours deep brown-black with a reddish hue and a tan head. Aroma is chocolate with a tinge of coffee. Taste is chocolate milk straight up with a little toasty bitterness.
