Bottle, thanks to SlovakSniper. Inky black pour with a medium tan head. Lots of bourbon, coffee, vanilla and chocolate in the aroma, and a touch of oak and red fruits. Flavour is the same, with a nicely balanced bourbon finish and a very silky smooth sweet chocolate and coffee flavour. This is a fantastic imperial stout.

Thanks alehunter for this gem. This is insane. Massive vanilla, bourbon, and chocolate fudge aromas. Chocolate chip cookies too. Thick black pour with quickly disappearing head. Sweet and smooth with a bitter coffee after taste. Vanilla, semisweet chocolate, oak, ash. All things good in a glass is what this is. Phenomenal.

Bottle. Pours a brown-black with pale moka head, long lasting ring of foam. Rich and multi-layered coffee. Fresh cream and just the right amount of "green" reminiscent of kopi. Aromatic bourbon. Taste is huge roasted coffee bitterness, light dark chocolate and licorice. The bourbon presence is reconforting. This is a rich low sugar bourbon imperial stout that suceeds in being truly flavorful. Very close to the bests in this highly competitive category.

Poured deep dark brown with a dense beige head. Aroma of roast malt, vanilla smoothness, dark fruit, dark chocolate. Full body, flavour of the aroma, well balanced. Excellent.

2013 Edition served at Only Cafe on Danforth, bottle. Classic black stout look. Some vanilla in the aroma tops the big-built espresso stout sweetness and roast. Taste has a lot more tannins that are tolerable but not rounded of their woody quality. I’d probably enjoy a 6-12 month old Regular Peche a lot more. Thank you Fabian @ Only for this King Beer Geek offering.

Bière noire comme la nuit, aucune lumière ne peut la traverser, parfaite opacité, effervescence difficile à observer, mais qui semble moyenne, surmontée d’un col presque aussi brun que la bouteille d’où il provient, moyennement large, mais très dense, mousseux, collant et persistant. Arômes dominants de torréfaction, de boisé et d’alcool. Beaucoup de café, expresso, léger chocolat noir, fût de bois, bourbon, fumée, tourbe, léger vanille. Je crois également déceler une odeur de pâtisserie, ou de levure à pain. Beau nez, belle intensité, bonne complexité. En bouche, pétillement presque inexistant, mais breuvage très lourd, très onctueux. C’est soyeux, moelleux et velouté au palais! Au goût, je suis d’abord fort étonné par la douceur de cette bière par rapport à la Péché Mortel de base, une bière que je trouve passablement «agressive». Plus chocolatée qu’au nez, ça fait très café-dessert avec des saveurs évidente de bourbon, de boisé, de fumée et de vanille, le tout semblant être enrobé d’une riche pâtisserie. Contrairement à la Péché Mortel de base, presque aucune amertume, pas de saveurs de brûlés, excellente intégration des saveurs entre elles. Bien intense en bouche, belle complexité, excellente bière, bel «upgrade» par rapport à la version de base.

ametras (1286) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 10, 2014
[2013] 341ml bottle. Black with a thin foamy tan head. Flavors are vanilla, oak, bourbon, milk chocolate, roasted malts, coffee, caramel and licorice. Medium to full body, soft carbonation, creamy texture. Coffee notes are less prominent than the regular version but the perfectly integrated barrel characteristics take this classic to another level. Very nice beer.

deepeary (405) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 10, 2014
2013 341 ml bottle at BeerBistro. Black as tar with mocha head for days. On the nose it’s wood city, oak, bourbon, vanilla. On the taste, a heavy but balanced dose of bourbon, coffee, cocoa and wood. And a long sweet cocoa-bourbon finish. Coffee notes were subdued to me, compared to the regular version of this beer. The only way to improve this would be to have it on tap. Worth the $15 I paid to try it.

12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours black with a beige head. Aroma of strong bourbon, a lot of coffee, roasted malts, some dark chocolate, light notes of dark fruits, and light vanilla. Flavor the same with a nice blend of everything. Smoother texture. A really good beer.

Noir foncé avec une petite mousse marron. L’arôme du bourbon, chocolat et un peu de café. Le goût est intense. Plein de bourbon (très dominant) avec du chocolat et café et un très peu d’amertume dans la finale.
