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.
