Ahh, chocolate and vanilla—the magic combination that has ruled the world of desserts since the Victorian age. We wanted to brew a beer that pays homage to this perfect pairing, and that’s how Hella Nibs was born.

Starting with a rich imperial stout recipe, we infuse the beer with HELLLLLLA cacao nibs and a kiss of vanilla for balance.

If you’re a fan of big, bold dessert beers, this is the brew for you!

The base for Hella Nibs is a mix of millet and rice malts, selected to emphasize caramel sweetness and a beautiful black hue. We then add a touch of buckwheat malt and flaked oats, which contribute a creamy mouthfeel, blending into the background and helping the flavors pop.

The end result is a lush, fudgy, chocolate-forward drinking experience that goes great with—or replaces—dessert. Life is short; drink dessert first!
