Brew people,

I've recently come across ~0.5 lb of cocoa nibs from our amazing local chocolate shop here in Nashville called Olive and Sinclair and I definitely need to utilize them in a brew. The obvious choice would be a nice black chocolate stout, but I rarely dabble in dark beers so I need some recipe recommendations. I'd also love to hear any other uses you could think of for the nibs.

Thanks, as always.

Soak about 4 oz nibs in vodka for a week, then toss the whole mess into secondary for another week with a nice stout or porter racked over them. Will be delicious.
