Style: American Double / Imperial Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 9.50%

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.

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.
