DDC nailed it with this. Peche Mortel Bourbon is dark and bold. Big coffee and pleasingly modest bourbon on the nose and palate. Coffee is more upfront and bourbon more on the back. Taste also has a lot of toasty nuts and raisin. More carbonation than I expected vs the base beer, but overall still very smooth.

Deep black with tan half finger head. Gorgeous. Nice oily lacing around the glass but still remains some carbonation and doesn't just look like motor oil. Aroma pops with spicy vanilla bourbon. Wonderful roasted coffee, oak, and chocolate malt flavors. Light cinnamon, plum, and tobacco flavors. This is awesome. Alcohol is present but just right. Balances the flavors without being harsh to cloyingly sweet. Awesome beer. Absolutely awesome.

From a 12oz bottle, dated 2016-11-07. Served in a tulip.

Pours a richly opaque, oily oaken-black with a big finger-and-a-half of mocha, bubbly, sudsy foam. Gradually subsides to a fizzy film and a fat collar around the glass with a light curtain of lace.

Relatively meager in the aroma department, mostly caramel fudge, smoke and copper.

Tastes of vanilla caramel and pipe tobacco, rich and unctuous. The rich bourbon and bitter coffee are there, but understated, as supporting players, they're not stealing the show. Roasted malt, damp punky oak, cacao, plum, clean earthiness and perfume. Finishes with a little burnt toast and milk chocolate with smoky booze lingering in the sinuses and warming the gullet.

Feel is smooth, creamy, mouth-coating and medium-thick bodied. The beer is surprisingly brightly carbonated - surprising in the sense that, it is so creamy, that you're not aware of how well carbonated it is until you feel for it. Should be a sipper, but I can't make myself slow down.

Dieu di Ciel! answers the question, 'how do you make Péché Mortel even better.' Stunning. Thanks to @TheDoctor!

Poured from fridge temp. Pours jet black with some carbonation. Smell is heavy on the coffee - not a bunch of bourbon coming through. The coffee notes are fantastic. Not too bitter - just right. Taste is MUCH different from the regular peche. Coffee is incredibly smooth, and the bourbon has just the right amount of presence. Roasted malts, a bit of coffee bitterness, chocolate, and some dark fruit. Taste is incredibly complex and bold, especially for a BA stout under 10%. Mouthfeel is incredible. Overall amazing.

Really dark brown color with tan head. Aroma has dusty wood barrel notes with a bit of whiskey. Taste has bitter chocolate and cacao, wood barrel, some scotch, medium roasty bitterness on the finish. Medium to full bodied, smooth carbonation. Overall it's a good imperial stout but the barrel treatment is not that great.

11/2016 bottle drank in a peche mortal glass on 3/30/2017

L-fairly thin, but ok for 9.5%...tan head, fairly bubbly
S-coffee, some dark fruits, hint of oak, and sweet chocolate
T-follows the nose...more oak opened as it warmed but never really got the bourbon
F-very drinkable, a little thin, no booze
O-probably need this to age some. I didn't get much barrel so it was a bit of a letdown, however, still a great beer because this base is so great

Poured into a Glencairn Whisky Glass - 2016 Bottle Edition
Ok to eye a beautiful black / brownish opaque color. A timid foamy collar that recreate when spinning the glass but dissipate quite quickly.

The nose: The Bourbon appears fairly early by the perception of an odor approaching a background of Scotch or Whiskey concealed in the bottom of the glass.

Obviously, the smell of the coffee and cocoa was also evident in the early smell.

Mouth; The big fans of the regular version will be served as hell.

In addition to the tones of roasted cereals, cocoa and coffee. The discreet taste of vanilla. This beer also have a beautiful corpse and texture in the mouth. In my opinion the grand final is what makes the bourbon that it stands out so much of the regular version. By the quantity of residual alcohol present in the mouth and the retro-olfaction one notes this beautiful aroma of bourbon wich buckles the loop. The final strecthes and can be appreciated. Then, re-wearing the glass to the nose the mechanism snaps into place and one would already believe that one would taste the bourbon without having carried it to the lips.

A nectar to taste with respect produced by artisans of our home.

Pours slightly hazy medium orange/amber/light copper color with a 1 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers
