Café et bourbon? Ce n’est pas aussi farfelu que ça en a l’air! Un nez de café fraîchement moulu explose tout d’abord au nez, suivi d’effluves d’alcool fort. Ces arômes émanent d’une bière noire comme la plus sombre des nuits dégageant un collet brun moyen qui part vite, mais qui laisse une fine dentelle. L’amertume du café et la chaleur enivrante du bourbon s’amalgament à merveille. Elle a beaucoup de corps, mais est juste un petit peu trop intense à mon goût.

12 oz. bottle. It pours black with a nice tan head. The aroma is pretty hot with some alcohol phenols up front but nice rich fudge and coffee underneath. I’m not picking up much bourbon unless the hot alcohol counts. The flavor has stronger notes of bourbon with some vanilla tempering the strong coffee and fudge. It still tastes pretty hot to me though. The body is a bit thinner than I would expect and very alcoholic. It has a chocolaty, bourbon finish. Pretty nice, but I’m becoming more and more convinced that bourbon AND coffee in an imperial stout is a bit too much. Also the heat was a little off putting. Still a tasty, satisfying beer.

34cl, as Péché Mortel Réserve Spéciale (vieillie en fût de Bourbon), exclusive Canadian brew, with coffee, thx alot to Secret Santa!, very complex Stout, roasted/malty and slightly alcoholic/spicy, yet not too heavy, balanced, hazy, nearly no head, very good brew, yet very expensive!

341 ml. bottle. Thanks Mike! Pours black with a small tan head. Aroma of malt, coffee, and bourbon. Taste is coffee, roasted malt, bourbon, and some dark chocolate. Hides the alcohol very well. Excellent.

I’ve been saving this one for awhile and it did not disappoint. If you can ever get your hands on this beer you must.

Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured black hue with an average creamy light brown head that lasted with good lacing. Aroma was a heavy toasted sweet malt, strong coffee and bourbon aroma. Medium to heavy body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy complex toasted malt, vanilla and bourbon flavor and a medium to heavy complex sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Standout brew.

Bottle from Tooch4321...thanks Adam! - Pours black with a thin ring of tan head. Nose is buttery toffee, coffee grounds, and dry dark roast malt. Taste is coffee grounds, vanilla, some barrel sweetness, dark roast, and a decent amount of nuttiness. Thin and not much carbonation. Surprised that the coffee is pretty much hidden, which is a lot of what I like about the base beer.

12 oz. bottle courtesy of kbudd19. Pours dark brown to black with a thin tan head. The aroma is roasted coffee, bittersweet chocolate, smooth bourbon, vanilla, caramel and wood. The flavor is much of the same with roasted malts, black coffee, espresso, bourbon is seamlessly integrated into the base beer, vanilla, wood, sweet chocolate, dark fruits, and the slightest bit of ash. This is smooth drinking from start to finish. This was a treat and well worth rating 3900.
