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.

Tap from House of Brewz in Fort Myers Beach. Roasted barley, wine and cocoa porter smell. Dark pour light head. Smooth body, roasted chocolate flavor with hops. Smooth and balanced. Really nice.

From a bottle. This is a delicious beer, the cocoa is super smooth but its not overly sweet, one of my favourites.

This was outstanding. Cola colored beer with a thin, off-white head. Aromas of coffee and milk chocolate. Tastes of dark chocolate, some mild coffee, some toasted barley, and nice hints of vanilla. Kind of like chocolate milk. Silky smooth and easy to drink. Highly recommended beer.

sloshgator (741) - Orlando, Florida, USA - DEC 30, 2016
Funky Buddha Nib Smuggler taste just like a chocolate milk. Dark pour with quickly disappearing brown head. A little malt and chocolate aroma. Taste is sweet and chololately with definite presence of lactose. Pretty good. FB nails the description.

4 pack shared with my fairer half. Pours deep jet black, two finger sized khaki head. Lots of vanilla and cocoa. Full bodied but with a silky and creamy mouthfeel.

12 oz. bottled 11/20/2016. Nearly black body with a sizzling away head. Nose is rich dark chocolate, vanilla and cream. Tastes of sweet chocolate, dry cocoa and lactose. Little room for anything else. Near-medium body is almost cloying and has medium carbonation.

Dark black, no head. Hello dark milk chocolate. Loads of loads of milky dark chocolate. Velvet smooth. Vanilla is a nice touch. Thx Homer for the top 50 in my favorite style (Sweet stout).

A bit thin, but otherwise a lovely cocoa forward, moderately roasty porter. Plesant would be the perfect word for this.

A: Deep dark brown coloured with a thin light brown head N: Vanilla, maple syrup, milk chocolate, light coffee T: Maple syrup, vanilla, milk chocolate, almuminum foil O: Very promising nose to it, a bit dissapointing taste though. A strange metallic taste...? A bit thin mouthfeel.
