Draft @ Dieu du Ciel Péché Day, Moeder Lambic Fontainas. Brune foncée, qui oscille presque sur le noir, col est épais et crémeux nettement plus axé sur le moka que les autres versions offertes ce jour. Arôme est intense et offre là une superbe palette d’effluves toutes plus intenses les unes que les autres. Un Bourbon digne de ce nom savamment bien mis à profit, au contraire de nombreuses autres bières, avec une intensité olfactive au niveau du café sans pareil. Rétro ajoute une note de vanille presque de noix de coco. Le café est en retrait mais tjrs aussi bien utilisé. Palais est tout aussi exceptionnel, le Bourbon est puissant sans verser dans le surfait. Retrouve un profil onctueux qui alterne entre douceur vanillée-boisée du chêne américain et un malt renforcé, chocolaté, pointe caramel avec un fini réchauffant des quais 10%. Je note même un effet noisette et noix grillées. Divin breuvage!

Not enough draft (about one glass) @ Journée Péché at Chez Moeder Lambic Fontainas! Thank you for sharing! Black with a very dark tanned mocha head, possibly darkest head of the 5 version tried that day. Nose is amazing balance between mocha, bourbon, sweetish coffee with a dash of real roasted coffee, brown & exotic sugar, real bourbon & exceptional balance, clear bourbon & strongy present but it doesn’t feel like a splash of alcohol (which I also like). Taste is amazing balance of sweet mocha, non-boozy bourbon, dark chocolate, real coffee, sugar, brown sugar, complimentary bourbon, none of the usual vanilla that you usually get from bourbon, more coffee, toffee,… Unbelievable balance whilst still having all of these amazing bourbon & coffee flavors, ridiculously smooth, uniform, sugar, nuts. Solid cacao body but not overly heavy, this is simply crazily astonishing powder, rich flavors etc. combined with exceptional finesse. I feel like drinking this always, screw it, giving this one a five.

12oz 2012 bottle pours black with small dark brown head. Nose is earthy dark coffee, cocoa spice, chocolate, dark fruit, vanilla, cinnamon. Taste is creamy mouthfeel, spicy coffee roast, earthy dark bitter chocolate, char, some baking spice, vanilla bourbon. Finishes with some earthy oak, wet coffee, spice, chocolate, roast. Superb even at 3 years.

UPDATED: FEB 29, 2016 Tasted side by side with regular Peche Mortel. Thx bu11zeye for this gem! both are dark black with out head. Wow this is interesting. Same thick chewy chocolate taste as Peche mortel, but abundant bourbon flavors (duh!). Not as boozy as a lot of bourbon bombs. Oak. Oak, and more oak. Not as smooth or drinkable as the regular, but much more dynamic. If this had maple or vanilla in it, it would be on of my top 10s, instead it is just a really great BA stout.

UPDATED: JUL 24, 2016 C’est quand même assez rigolo que je donne ma première note parfaite à une bière d’un style qui n’est, en général, pas mon préféré... Mais ici, mesdames et messieurs, nous avons droit à un liquide qui transcendence son genre : impossible de ne pas aimer! L’équilibre (ce mot trop facilement utilisé pour critiquer la bière et, je l’avoue, par moi inclusivement!) est ici indéniable et son utilisation clairement justifiée. L’alcool fort est bien présent mais absolument pas envahissant. Le corps est vivant, l’alcool agréable. C’est comme de croquer dans un gros dessert cochon, mais sans sucre excessif. Un petit chef d’oeuvre.
MAJ : Je trouve que la version 2016 est légèrement moins savoureuse que les précédantes. Ça demeure une excellente bière, mais je dois revoir ma note globale à la baisse.

Had on 3.29.14 from a bottle and then on tap for Peche Day 2015 in QC. This isn’t my favorite. Black pour with some tan head. Oily. Sticky. Flavor isn’t really bourbony though - tastes more old and stale than anything else. The bourbon doesn’t shine and for some reason the base beer doesn’t really come through either... not sure what happened here.

Dieu Du Ciel makes some great beers. This barrel aged version is outstanding. Looks and tastes like a solid barrel aged stout. Hits your palate a little strong but overall an improved version of the peche mortel that a friend in Canada has shared on several occasions. Cheers!

Rating #1480 - 04.03.2015 - On tap @revolutionyeg for Péché Day 2015.Black as sin (indeed fitting) with a weak tan head that caps nicely. Aroma is heavy roast malt and coffee, bourbon vanilla. Taste is heavy on roast malt and coffee flavours, very mild sweetness and a pronounced American oak quality. Delectable. #5whore

Bottle. Awesome aroma of moderate roast coffee, chocolate cake, cookie dough, and vanilla. Tastes sweet and delicious. Big espresso, chocolate chip cookies and huge vanilla. Slightly boozy finish. Medium body. Love it.

Aroma e aparência espetaculares. Gosto forte de café da melhor qualidade. Espuma densa e estável. Não deixa nada a desejar em nenhum aspecto à cervejas do mesmo estilo e com preços muito mais altos. Dieu du Ciel se tornou uma das minhas cervejarias favoritas graças a essa cerveja.
