Nib Smuggler Chocolate Milk Porter

The latest Funky Buddha beer to hit shelves is Nib Smuggler Chocolate Milk Porter. I've had this at the brewery before but decided to grab a bottle at the liquor store earlier today. The label depicts a cow with a handful of cash and a boatload of cocoa nibs fleeing police helicopters and boats in a high speed water chase. The story explains that this chase resulted after the brewery smuggled the finest cocoa from the mountains of Brazil. "Get cocoa'd up." 6.3% alcohol.

Beautiful aroma of cocoa with hints of coffee. Sweet cocoa, very rich, creamy and milky. There is a decent bitter balance. No real complexities beyond perhaps a touch of vanilla, but this is certainly an enjoyable treat. Grab it if you can!
