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.

12oz bottle from Publix in Port St Lucie West. Almost black pour. Choco-caramel nose. Taste is better; much more cocoa nibs, cocoa liqueur and light lactose. Rich & smooth. Medium bodied. Finishes quite sweet, which was not as noticeable through the body. Blend is good. Another nice one from Funky Buddha. 13.8

GTAEgeek (2502) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JAN 2, 2018
12 oz. bottle. Pours black, with a big, bubbly, beige head. The aroma is milk chocolate, star anise, light dust, and syrup. Very sweet and malty. Medium body, with a syrupy, malty, and chalky mouthfeel and a clean body. This is a thoroughly enjoyable beer, like a chocolate shake.

jgb9348 (6586) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - DEC 28, 2017
Deep dark brown coloured body with a thinnish tan head, only a centimetre tall at first. Aroma of super pungent milk, lactose, lightly roasted malt, some raisins, oats and a dose of grain and even some mushrooms in the mix here. Medium-bodied; Assertive sweet flavours of chcoolate, raisins, roasted malt and oats and finishing with even a hint of tobacco and sweet prunes and plums. Aftertaste is almost just as robust with a distinct profile of walnuts, pecans, raisins, plums, grain and some oats - very nice throughout. Overall, a nice and incredibly deep and pungent beer with a great level of sweetness, a superb amount of different flavours emanating from this, along with a surprise level of complexity and balance this all seems to have make this an excellent option. I was expecting this to be tremendously over-rated and not worth your time/effort, but it's exactly the opposite. This beer is great and a leading example of the style - it's executed almost flawlessly and the amount of different distinct flavours is amazing. Nice to try and even better knowing that it is such a good beer that people typically (myself included) can't find regularly make this even better. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Corner Store (Bait & Tackle) in West Palm Beach, Florida on 26-December-2017 for a crazy $4,49 (but in retrospect, worth every cent) sampled in my hotel room here in Cocoa Beach, Florida on 27-December-2017.

Bottle, thanks Jared! Luscious and intoxicating aroma of sweet chocolate, lactose sugar, vanilla and some roasted malt. Pours dark brown with half a finger of mocha brown head that has excellent retention and lacing. Starts with sweet milk sugar and chocolate flavors to go along with a silky smooth mouthfeel and rich, full body. Finishes extremely smooth with a hint of roasted malt and nice vanilla flavor blending with the other flavors nicely. Wonderful milk stout!

Difficult to disparage, because this is one of the finest dessert beers to try. A milk porter with chocolate flavoring is simply irresistible. Could not drink enough of this. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

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.
