Very nice coffee Stout aged in bourbon barrels! Very nice well balanced coffee stout with light smooth barrel notes. Good stuff but for the trouble it was to track down there are a lot better BA coffee stouts out there. Ohh well...checked off the list anyway.

Pours opaque black with one finger heas. Aroma is licorice, booze, bitter coffee, and oak. I don't get the vanilla/caramel notes from the bourbon. Taste follows. This means more toward the generic whiskey flavor and lacks the rich toffee flavors. This is not a sweet beer. The coffee is smooth and roasty, but it's a little overwhelmed by the whiskey. I get some earthy hop notes as well. Definitely leans toward European style. Mouth feel light to medium. Overall, I'd say the barrel doesn't improve the base beer, but this is still very good.

The original Peche Mortel is one of my all-time favorites, and while this bourbon variant is incredibly smooth, I think I still prefer the base stout for it's pure drinkability and stronger coffee flavor. That being said, I'd pick this up again in a heartbeat if I'm ever lucky enough to come across it again!

L: Dark and warm mocha and chestnut hues with a thin sandy head and minimal retention
S: Bold coffee notes complemented by dark chocolate, roasted nuts, and mild bourbon
T: Luxurious pour of espresso complemented by a rush of bitter dark chocolate, hazelnuts, and molasses
F: Medium body with ample carbonation despite having been cellared for several years - exceptionally smooth overall and bordering on creamy
O: This was a decided improvement upon the base Péché Mortel, which is a stand out stout by itself. For me the barrel aging added a complexity and depth that enhanced the velvety coffee profile. Overall this is an incredible BA stout. My only complaint is the feel was a bit thinner than I would have hoped, but rest assured this is a world class beer and one of Canada's finest.

Bottle. Pours a motor oil black. Nice dark head with decent stick and some stubborn bubbles. Smells delicious. Bourbon chocolate. Rich dark chocolate taste. Fresh coffee. Reminds me of a high quality Kona. Not as velvety as I'd like but good carb. Great beer but gotta say the bourbon is supporting cast vs. a star.
