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.

My Bottom Line:
Green, earthy cocoa is laced in vanilla and caramel, as roastiness attempts to tighten up this flavourful but rough Porter-like concoction.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam skirts the floatie-laden dark brown.
-Coke-like angles are found.
-This is not too sweet, which is a plus, but the flavour positioning could be improved upon.
-A bit like Cigar City, I feel like Funky Buddha Is all across the map quality-wise. Too many different brews being attempted and no time to make them all perfect.

Bottle.

Bottle. Pours black with thick creme colored head. Nice vanilla flavor with a slight tartness. Too thin. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a dark brown color with light tan head. Chocolate, wholly chocolate on the nose, with some vanilla sweetness; follows onto the palate. Medium to full bodied, very smooth. Finishes with nice chocolate and vanilla notes.

Pours dark brown color with tan head. Big chocolate aroma with vanilla and lightly roasted malt. Sweet milk chocolate and vanilla flavors with some roasted malt. Very sweet. Medium to full body with moderate carbonation.

Bottle - Pours a dark brown with some highlights. Sweet, coco nib aroma with some off lactose notes. I like some notes, but not others. Interesting, but not well crafted.

Merci à Jonathan pour le partage! Un sweet stout agréable et savoureux. La bière est noire et présente une jolie tête blanche maculée. Beaucoup de chocolat en bouche et au nez dans un liquide très sucré sans toutefois trop l’être. Belle densité sans être sirupeuse, une vanille mêlée à un chocolat sucré dans lequel se cache une cerise à la manière d’un cherry blossom. Bonne bière apprenant à un style que j’affectionne habituellement peu.

Bottle received in trade from MeadMe, thanks for the opportunity! solid black with a huge frothy off white head. Huge chocolate aromas and flavor. Chocolate milk porter is right, and its pretty damn good too.

Shared bottle. Pours black with a small tan head. Aroma of chocolate, malt, and vanilla. Taste is milk chocolate, roasted malt, vanilla, and a bit of coffee. Nice.

suprchunk (2994) - Crestview, Florida, USA - DEC 12, 2015
Almost black pour. Huge chunks floating around everywhere. Small tan head that doesn’t last long. Little bit of lacing. Big chocolate aroma and taste. Not much else besides that except for some sweetness and a full mouthfeel.

Funky Buddha continues their reign of terror on beer loves with another concoction. Overly sweet chocolate, milky texture. Dark garnet color. Some nuttiness, but mostly its really sweet.
