2016 Vintage
12oz bottle poured into a snifter

A- pours a deep black color with a one-finger creamy light tan head that has great retention long after the pour, looks like an espresso and leaves great lacing behind, the best head retention I've ever seen from a BA beer

S- huge roasted coffee notes up front; earthy, herbal, light char, espresso. Beyond the coffee, aromas of sweet vanilla cream, some nuttiness, cocoa & peppery bourbon soaked wood

T- opens with a huge hit of espresso, earthy & herbal, quickly followed by bourbon and spicy wood notes poking through. Mid-palate gives sweet vanilla cream, chocolate, molasses and caramel. As it nears the finish, notes of charred malt adds some smoky notes and battles with sweet flavors of more vanilla and coconut. Lingers of sherry, bourbon, chocolate and char

M- medium body with moderate-low carbonation leads to a creamy mouthfeel that continues all the way to the finish, finishes with pure velvety, silky cream, abv hidden well

O- I've waited a long time to try the BA version of one of my favorite coffee stouts and it didn't disappoint. The barrel notes blend brilliantly with the base beer and has that remarkable creamy velvety mouthfeel throughout, just as with the regular version, outstanding

Very strong coffee taste. If you don't like coffee beers, skip this.

Peche Day at Foundry, Northampton, 2017. 2016 Edition.

A- Black as can be body from the taps to my snifter tasting glass. A tan cap forms atop the brew with good retention and massive sheets of lace decorate the glass everywhere. The head has a silky, fluffy texture.

S- Medium strength bourbon barrels and the best coffee stout of all compliment each other like spaghetti and meatball. Peppery whiskey, medium dark roast coffee, luscious cocoa, vanilla sweets, toasted oak, heavy toasted nuts and wet wood. The balance and marriage is spot on.

T- Again. Follows the aroma but somehow got better. Amazing balance of bourbon barrel and the best coffee stout. Vanilla, toasty spicy wet bourbon wood, pepper whiskey, slight raisin, caramel, dark chocolate around 80% cocoa, a bit of booze and even a scotch saltiness. Literally a balance of the ages.

MF- Medium thickness with a creamy smooth consistency.. Low end carbonation allows the decadent flavors to shine. Ends with some alcohol warming. A bit slick. Could use some more thickness but hardly an issue as it is big enough to support the balanced flavor profile.

This barrel is lit fire hype amazing. Coffee, vanilla, cocoa and whiskey in heaven. The best coffee stout gets a kiss from one of the best barrels around. Dessert goodness and something I could honestly sip on for hours if there was enough.

On tap at Ave Pub. Black pour with two finger tan head that slowly fades, coating lace. Aroma full of roasty coffee, vanilla, wood, Bourbon, none overpowering the others. Tastes like the aroma, so well balanced up front, all the flavors blend well. In the finish comes some coffee and dark chocolate bitterness that lasts. Medium soft creamy feel.

Nice revelation. Love the regular Peche.
From a 341ml bottle Chilled. Poured to large tulip.
Dark oily black colour. Promiscuous tan head.
Bourbon on the nose. No disguise here. Bitter chocolate as well.
It's all Peche Mortel with bourbon. Perfect blend for me. So good.

Pitch black with a nice beige head. This beer is a very balance one. Between the coffee, the oak, the bourbon, the vanilla, the chocolate. The bitterness is moderate but the beer is roasted all along with a light herbal and boozy presence. The mouthfeel is so smooth, it's almost perfect for the style.
This a great beer. Not as complex and balanced as the original but much better than the brandy version
