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.

Bottle @ home, thanks to homer321. Pours a deep brown / black appearance with a lasting dark brown head. Aroma has chocolate, caramel, fudge, light coffee, vanilla, and a hint of green pepper. Fairly high carbonation. Moderate to moderate plus sweetness. Moderate low bitterness. Fairly well balanced. Plenty of chocolate and dessert notes in the flavor. Pretty good though the carbonation seems to be a little too strong (and no notes of green pepper in the flavor). Fine.

jbruner (4213) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAR 21, 2016
Pours a deep brownish black from the bottle with thin tan head that dissipates to leave light lace. Aroma of big chocolate notes, like milk chocolate, straight up. Taste follows, insanely chocolate milk. How much cocoa nib do they use, really insane. Coating mouth, mild carbonation, nice stuff for dessert or night cap.

Pint draft at Goozlepipe JAX. Pours like a dark dry stout with a long lasting head of tiny bubbles. The aroma is rich and sweet milk chocolate. Outstanding flavor with gentle chocolate and just a hint of bitterness in the finish. Great beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle shared, thanks Gregg. Still cant believe the abv, this drinks like a complex BA imperial stout, nicely balanced with notes of chocolate cake and vanilla. Great stuff.
