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.

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.

Bottle. A- Milk chocolate, subtle vanilla. A- Black color, black liquid, light brown head. T- Milk Chocolate, melted Hershey bar. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, smooth finish. O- Almost like drinking chocolate milk or a liquid Hershey bar. Nice chocolate taste with a minor hint of vanilla. Shockingly not all that sweet. Really nice stuff.

AirForceHops (7233) - 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.

Chalumeaux (1553) - 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 (6244) - 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.

nimbleprop (8376) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 13, 2017
On tap at Lost and Found, pours a watery brown with a ring of white head. Nose has chocolate, root beer, malt. Flavor is malty, rootbeer, chocolate chews. Finishes sweet but thin too.

ClarkVV (6700) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - APR 11, 2017
Draught at Row 34, 2/22/17.
Dark cocoa-mahogany with a tan head showing strong retention.
Strong fudge, dusty cocoa and a fair amount of prune interlaced with light lactose which adds both sweet and tart. Bready and lightly caramelic on the finish with no alcohol or flaw.
Lots of malt, fudge, chocolate and light lactose in this one. Some thinning on the end, though it still retains plenty of sugar. Light roast, spice and almost cinnamon-like on the end with no alcohol or flaw. Just a touch too much sweet/tart and dry cocoa juxtaposition for me with lots of lingering fudge. Low to moderate, fairly engaging carbonation with no alcohol or flaw.

4.1
Tognetta (951) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - MAR 21, 2017
Marrom bem escura, turva, espuma de média formação e pouca persistência. No aroma bastante cacau/chocolate, baunilha, em segundo plano coco queimado. Paladar de médio dulçor caramelado e leve amargor do torrado. Corpo médio e cremoso, média carbonatação. Final mantém a potência do dulçor e leve amargor, continua evidenciando a baunilha e cacau mais que o coco. Ótimo exemplar do estilo.

3.5
thornecb (5906) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 19, 2017
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.
