Finback Brewery BQE (2022 Chocolate Coffee)

What the brewers say

“With cacao nibs and coffee. Aged in bourbon barrels.”

What our panel thought

“Aroma of dark-roast coffee with lingering chocolate, sweet malt, bourbon barrel. Flavor is mocha without the milky richness, balanced with a shot of espresso. Lingering dusty baker’s chocolate in finish.”

What our editors thought

“Strong espresso aroma with rich chocolate and just a touch of coconut and vanilla peeking around the edges. Lighter body with nutty coffee tones and a tight chocolate punch.”
