Served from a fresh 2014 keg at Bar Stillwell in Halifax.

I love the standard Péché Mortel and had high expectations for this brew. Sadly, the barrel character was overpowering for my tastes. The coffee was almost completely hidden to me, and only really came through at the very end of the taste. For big fans of bourbon though, I would imagine that this is a real treat. A vintage bottle might be more to my liking.

2014 vintage. Labeled as 2013 on the bottle but according to Dieu du Ciel, it's a new batch.
Smell of coffee beans, vanilla, bourbon, wood and toffee.
Taste of intense bourbon, wet wood, coffee and aromas of chocolate milk and small spicy notes from alcohol. Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy. Warm and round. Very complex and well-balanced. The strong aroma of coffee doesn't taste as much as the original version.
Bitterness is long and sweet. Hints of chocolate and bourbon. Very nice beer from DDC, again.
