So smooth and very drinkable. Smells great, with lots of bourbon, bitter coffee, pepper, and oakiness. Not as full bodied as BCBS, but extremely drinkable, with just the right amount of mild sweetness. A very nice compliment to the regular Peche Mortel. I could drink this every day. And you could too. Delicious.

On tap at the Ottawa Craft Beer Festival. Pours such a dark brown it is verging on jet black. Very thin mocha head. Aromas are of coffee, chocolate and bourbon. Tastes are identical. It tastes like it smells. Overall, I like the regualr Peche Mortel a bit better, as I found the booziness of the bourbon overwhelmed some of the things I really liked in the original, like the coffee and dark chocolate combination.

12 oz. bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Black. Small khaki head. Not quite inky black.

Smell - Bourbon. Lots of coffee. Fudgy chocolate. Very nice.

Taste - Sharp bourbon. Coffee is sharp too. Works well together. Fudgy and chocolatey. Light coffee bitterness.

Mouthfeel - A little boozy. Medium heavy. Medium low carbonation.

Overall - Awesome stuff. Hard to decide if it's better than the base.
