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 (341) - 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 (93) - 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.

vadie (633) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 4, 2014
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.

gEUS (1001) - Linden, BELGIUM - APR 25, 2014
Bottle sample thanks to Tommy. Pours deep brown to black with nearly no head. Intense bourbon and vanilla aroma, coca, roqsted malts and slight burnt wood. Medium body With auite some alcohol burn. Taste is sweet coffee, burnt beans and caramel. it’s a wonderful beer but not as spectacular as the scores make believe.

Thanks Kbudd19! How do you make a great beer better? Age it in bourbon barrels. Black pour with a brown head. Aroma is coffee, bourbon, faint dark fruit. Taste is coffee, bourbon, dry mouth feel. A tasty combo of flavor. Nice lacing. Oily The dry aftertaste lingers with bourbon and light dark fruit. The beer clings to the glass.

Hoprider (105) - DENMARK - APR 19, 2014
Pours black with a small dense head. The nose is roasted malts, coffee and a very ballanced vanilled cask influence. The mouthfeel is creamy and it has a soft carbonation. The taste has coffee, roasted/dusty malts, vanilla, some sweet bourbon booze and a little licorice flavoured toffee. The aftertaste is sweet and chocolaty with hints of coffee in the very end.

Bottle shared thanks to tom10101. Pours near black with a ring beige head. Aroma of bourbon, rich roast, cacao and molasses. Flavour is light heavy sweet and bitter. Major fudge and vanilla coming out and lingering in the palate. Full bodied with soft carbonation. Excellent!
