12oz bottle, served in a snifter. Dark cola brown body, nearly black, one finger white head, short retention, not much lacing. Smell is mellow black coffee, roast, milk chocolate, spirit, a bit of lactose and dark chocolate as well. Mellow on the coffee as far as the palate goes, this is a milk chocolate brandy bomb. The heat is welcome, but not overwhelming. Smooth milk chocolate, lightly roasted coffee, a touch of dark fruit, lactose. Kind of like a vietnamese coffee spiked with brandy. Lovely. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, a bit thinner than some of the bigger coffee stouts out there.

All about Cognac and Brandy. Less complex as the original one. Good oak and Cognac flavor. The coffee is light but there nonetheless. A bit more fruity and rounded than the original one. Definitely a sipper

Pours big and black with a creamy mocha head with decent retention and lace. The nose has big roasted malt, espresso, dark chocolate and sweet brandy/cognac. The taste again has plenty of roasted grain, coffee, chocolate, vanilla with warm brandy notes. Full body and good carbonation for smooth rich mouthfeel. A really nicely balanced BA stout that is a great addition to the line-up.

A - Poured black with a thin layer of mocha coloured head.

S - Intense coffee aroma up front with lighter chocolate and barrel notes present.

T - Bitter coffee up front, giving way to lighter chocolate fudge notes. The barrel presence is there but very much drowned out by the coffee. The barrel adds a roundness to the base beer much in the same way that the bourbon barrel version does, only the barrel and spirit notes are less detectable in this barrel treatment.

M - Medium, almost full body. Light carbonation. The mouth feel is a little watery.

Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color stout with a large dark brown foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of light barrel-aged notes of Cognac and Brandy with some floral coffee notes and light black chocolates notes is quite enticing. Taste is a smooth mix of floral coffee notes with some black chocolates notes and light residual sugar notes with a light Cognac/Brandy notes. Body is full with nice creamy body and good carbonation with no apparent alcohol. The barrel-aged notes really bring this beer together and rounds off any of the rough edges that the base beer may have had.

Thanks for the bottle, Papat444.
The nose is terrific, a real melange of brandy, cognac and coffee scents. The taste is the same. Wonderfully mixed together, everything is very smooth. The brandy is a bit more prominent than the cognac to my tastes, but both are there and go together nicely, adding some sweetness and depth. The base beer is good as always. The barrels are up front but not overpowering - by no means do they drown the beer, as has been the case occasionally with the bourbon barrel Peche. Just great.

First ever batch, bottled in November of 2015.

Pours a pitch black body with thin head that remains tight. Unmistakable robust coffee aroma. Cavalcade of flavor; espresso, roasted coffee, sweet brandy and a bit of heat from the cognac with coffee make a strong return for the finish. Found brandy to be more present but was very impressed how smooth this beer is. That being said, i think i prefer the bourbon barrel aged but this is still a fine ale indeed.
