Notes / Commercial Description:
Péché Mortel is an intensely black and dense stout in which coffee is infused during the brewing process. The result is a strong beer where prominent roasted flavours coalesce with a powerful taste of coffee. Once fermentation is complete, the beer is aged several months in bourbon oak barrels, which imparts some vanilla and woody aromas as well as bourbon flavours.

This is a 16 that has been aged for a year. Very dark appearance with a slight tan head. The aroma is a a nice coffee and bourbon. The taste is a nice strong blend of coffee and bourbon with a little bitterness.

2016 vintage, thanks Brendan.

This one pours a very dark black, with a small head, and not much lacing.

This has huge chocolatey, dark and smoky coffee notes on the nose- the time in the barrels didn't detract that at all. I get a bit of woody oak, too, with a little bit of bourbon, and tons of fudgy chocolate.

This is honestly pretty incredible. The barrel-aging is subtle, and adds nice touches to the already amazing base beer. There's more oak than bourbon, with a drizzle of vanilla across the palate as well. The coffee flavor is still dynamite and strong, even after a year in the bottle and a year (?) in bourbon barrels. There's so much chocolate and coffee here it's awesome. There's a hint of sweet dark fruits as well.

This is medium bodied, chewy and pretty rich, with a good level of carbonation for the style.

This is unreal good- it takes one of the best coffee stouts ever and makes it even better.

Awesome beer. Great barrel notes. Smells boozy and sweet. Nice and dark.

Pours oil slick black with a medium sized tan head that leaves a lot of sticky lacing.

The aroma is incredibly alluring, with rich, expressive notes of high end dark roast coffee, dark chocolate, smooth vanilla, touches of raspberry and cherry, and oak. There's also some creamy lactose and milk chocolate notes present. Lots of complexity, and yet succinct and pointed.

The flavor brings what the nose promised, with deep, rich, earthy coffee notes that are only rivaled by the absolute best coffee stouts out there! Bitter baker's chocolate follows, with just a touch of vanilla and oak. Smooth bourbon follows to round everything out.

The mouth feel is fairly thick, though not quite velvety, as it has a fair amount of carbonation. It finishes dry, with a somewhat sharp booze note that could be dialed back a bit, but it isn't too much.

This is a wonderful BA coffee stout that probably doesn't get the recognition it deserves! Probably better than most years of KBS, and maybe even some vintages of BCBCS! Seek this one out!

Great beer. Good mix of coffee and bourbon. A little hot as it was 2015 but great flavors and awesome mouthfeel. Like its non bourbon base beer this beer has a little sweetness, roastiness from whatever beans they use but overall a great beer that I would like to try different vintages of.
