4.6/5  rDev +4.5%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

11.5 oz bottle poured into a Nonic. 9.5% ABV, "Bottle Conditioned" Space for notched numbers on the label (two sets of 0-10) but the only thing notched was the first 0.

A - Peche Mortel is clear on the pour but completely black in the nonic. A large, three-finger head rises from the depths inducing a beautiful trickle of cascading beer. The result is a dark tan head with great retention and thick, patchy lace on the glass.

S - This is one of the most intensely roasted malt noses I've ever smelled. Black patent and chocolate malts give it a dark, brooding bitter and dry scent with lots of dark coffee bean to boot. A hint of brown sugar and molasses deepens the aroma.

T - The dark roasted malts are even more sinfully dark, robust, and bitter than the nose lets on. The hint of brown sugar and molasses are still there but are nearly lost amidst the chocolate and black patent roasted maltiness. The coffee, which tastes more like espresso, is equally as robust adding a dark bitterness to the brew that balances almost perfectly with the initial overly booziness. A very nice tasting imperial coffee stout.

M - Full-bodied and robust with a moderate carbonation level, the real complexity of this beer's mouthfeel is in the dryness. At points the coffee and robust malts can be almost chalk-like or cocoa powder-like in texture. The finish is bitter. Just a bit too much of a good thing here?

D - A nice imperial coffee stout I'd love to enjoy more (if it were a bit lower in price) but proves to be a slow sipper. Nicely done. If you spy this one, pick one up but make sure you like coffee.
