3.88/5  rDev -7.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A good looking stout. Half finger tan coloured head formed on the pour into my Chimay chalice. Not much retention, although there is still some slight head above the nucleation site.

Very nice aroma. Espresso and chocolate with a hint of vanilla overtop a nice creamy nougat. A hint of deeply roasted malt that borders upon char also present, just before the earthy and leafy hops reveal themself.

Wow, the subtlety of the vanilla in the nose is blown away by loads of vanilla in the taste. I love vanilla but this is a touch too much for me, and it manages to detract from instead of add to the nice chocolate profile and nougaty malts. Hint of char and earthy leafy hops at the finish.

As far as mouthfeel goes this is a great beer. Medium bodied, and quite smooth. As far as the components go my only critique would be to cut the amount of vanilla present by at least 50%.

Fairly drinkable, as my palate becomes overloaded and numbed by the vanilla blast I can concentrate more on the nice chocolate profile present, and the yummy nougat character than really shines in Peche Mortel. Recommended, although this one did not live up to the hype fueled expectations for me.

A-Pours nearly black.

S-Dark chocolate and sweet vanilla. Impressive vanilla actually. Roast and java. Bitter cocoa powder.

T-Bitter and sweet chocolate. Makes me think of milk and dark chocolate. Vanilla bean. Vanilla a bit softer here. Medium coffee notes. Finishes sweetly roasty.

M-Medium bodied. Velvety feel. Softer bubbles.

O-I enjoyed this one a bunch and the sample has prompted me to grab a bottle in the near future.

Serving type: on-tap

4.36/5  rDev +3.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

11.5-ounce bottle poured into a stout glass.

Appearance: Pours a near-black with a short tan head. Lacing minimal.

Aroma: This beer has an attractive set of aromas with black coffee, dark fruit, cocoa, vanilla, coffee beans and dark chocolate all represented.

Taste: This is a tasty, complex beer - the taste is close to the nose, with roasty black coffee accented by cocoa and vanilla the dominant theme.

Mouthfeel: It's also not as thick and sludgy as I had guessed. It's very drinkable.

Overall: A beer to seek out. The complex flavor makes this a unique stout - it's full of flavor, and very distinct. A great beer to dip, savor, and enjoy.
