Breakside Brewery Chocolate Brandy Alexande
What the brewers say
"Dosed ... with freshly grated nutmeg and Dutch cocoa powder, before aging it in brandy barrels."
What our panel thought
"Inviting aroma: milk chocolate, vanilla, cinnamon; lighter graham cracker, toast, and coffee. Straightforward flavor—bittersweet chocolate, light spice, roast malt. Chocolate flavors linger. Subdued barrel."
What our editors thought
"Polished leather, dark red fruit, and earthy spice on the nose; light, rustic anise. The sip is sweeter and less rugged, with soft fruit, milk chocolate, and sprawling sweetness."
