Bottle shared by DalzAle. Pours black brown with a thin khaki film that dissipates. Aroma smooth meld of dark chocolate roasted malt vanilla faint bourbon. Taste is slightly bitter dark chocolate vanilla roasted malt coffee and mellow bourbon. Palate is full oily slightly chalky and warming with a dry finish.

DalzAle (2026) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - OCT 14, 2016
Bottle from woodchopper on BA (thanks!) Dark black pour, thin chocolate head and an aroma of rich coffee, chocolate and hints of bourbon. Flavor is nice meld of boozy chocolate, fresh espresso and pleasant bourbon burn and flavor on the finish. Solid beer made even better with barrel aging.

ruigo (2390) - PORTUGAL - OCT 3, 2016
From bottle. Deep brown/black with a nice tan head. Vanilla, coffee, cocoa, dark chocolate, oak and bourbon in the aroma. Average carbonation and full body. Taste is roasted coffee at first followed by vanilla, cocoa and bourbon notes and again with a long roasted finish. Overall, a very good and complex beer.

From Youri. Nice beer but gotta give the head to head to the non top 50 cognac/Brandy version. This one was a little tougher around the edges and the coffee was more covered up. "Just" very good instead of great.

markwise (5195) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - SEP 25, 2016
Bottle courtesy of a friend. Cheers, friend! Pours a deep stout brown with a tan head. Nose is earth, chocolate, roast, oak, vanilla, and bourbon. Flavor hits with earth, roast, bourbon, cocoa, vanilla, and slight booze. Medium in body, earthy in bitterness, and an enjoyable beer, but a bit earthier than I like my BA stouts.

Sudz4Dayz (45) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 13, 2016
UPDATED: OCT 17, 2016 12oz pour on site at DDC. I was very excited to try this one due to how delicious the original Péché Mortel is and this did not disappoint at all. Has got to be the best stout I’ve ever had. Smooth, roasty, coffee and cocoa notes throughout. Trace amount of berries which comes naturally in most imperial stouts. Great alcohol taste as well. Unbelievable.

Adamsville (225) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 30, 2016
UPDATED: OCT 17, 2016 Notes et commentaires basés sur une bière jeune de 5 mois.
Apparence : Noire, beau col brun crémeux, rétention intéressante, dentelle qui s’accroche, carbonatation plus faible.
Nez : Café, chocolat, traces d’alcool.
Goût : Café, malt rôti, bois alcoolisé piquant important au début, s’atténue par la suite, amertume moyenne, peu ou pas sucrée, vanille, chocolat amer, voire poudre de cacao. Finale amère et boisée.
Sensation : Corps moyen-plus, crémeuse, effervescence faible, longue finale sèche, réconfortante.
Bref : Arômes du café et du malt très bien intégrés, l’amertume est bien présente, mais juste là pour équilibrer, pour soutenir ces arômes grillés, torréfiés. Le vieillissement en fut apporte des notes très boisés, alcoolisées dans la même veine. Une fois de plus, l’intégration et l’équilibre sont au rendez-vous. Une BA Stout plutôt sèche qui ne tombe pas dans le sucre décadent et dans le dessert. Bravo!
