Imperial Nibs



Imperial Nibs (8.5%ABV) is a delicious dark imperial porter made with cacao nibs from the Wellington Chocolate Factory, vanilla pods, and coconut toasted over manuka wood and manuka bark.

Imperial Nibs is bursting with intense chewy flavours of bitter chocolate, wood-fired toasted coconut, burnt toffee, & mellow maltiness.

Food Matches for Imperial Nibs include: blue cheeses, steak, roast beef, burgers, chili, chocolate, cheesecake, pavlova, vanilla or chocolate ice cream.

Best Before VS Vintage
Imperial Nibs has a Vintage on the label, not a Best Before date. Beer which has an ABV (Alcohol By Volume) at or above 7.3% ABV is packaged (like wine) with a Vintage and date of packaging. Like wine, beer packaged with a Vintage has no Best Before and does not expire, and like wine can be cellared, potentially for years. Beer which is cellared will likely change character, possibly losing some strong flavours and allowing other flavours to come to the fore.
