Holy crap batman! What a brew. In my opinion Peche Mortel is already perfect but the bourbon barrel aging gives it a more unique and luxurious profile. With a dark as night pour and a thin quickly fading layer of tan head the aroam wafts of the glass. The nose emphasised by heavy bourbon and earthy wooden notes, notes of booze and the worlds heaviest roasted malts. Bitter and sweet with candied chocolate and coffee esque flavours going head to head with robust roasted and barrel notes. The finish is smooth and breathtaking with a lingering bitter coffee and bourbon wood aftertaste. Just incredible.

manuelMTL (237) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 18, 2014
From 341 ml bottle in tulip. Beautiful black color with almost no head. Intense coffee aroma with some hints of Bourbon. Same flavors on the mouth. The Bourbon notes are clearly there and turn the whole drink into a boozy coffee-like beer. Vanilla and oak barrels add to the complexity of this beer. Creamy mouth feel. I am not a big fan of Bourbon barrel aged beers but this one is perfectly done.

The_Osprey (3241) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2014
Bottle from Brewdog, into snifter. Bottled Nov 2013. Black, big tan head doesn’t endure that long. Aroma has some paint and booze, caramel and vanilla fudge, bounty bar, touch of apple maybe, lightly metallic. Body is medium, slightly foamy, low carbonation. Taste is spicy, some earth, charred wood, just a touch of alcohol in the finish. Easy drinking for the style. Aroma is more interesting than the flavour.

Scopey (9061) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 27, 2014
2013 bottle from BrewDog CJ. It pours jet black with a medium tan head. The nose is rich roast, espresso coffee, toasty coconut, vanilla, marshmallow, dark chocolate, tobacco, brown sugar and bourbon. The taste is smooth, lightly bitter, rich roast, coffee, bourbon, toasty, warming alcohol, mild smoke, medicinal, chocolate ice-cream, vanilla and oak with a roasty finish. Full body, fine carbonation and slick mouth-feel. All comes together rather well. Smells spectacular and don’t taste too shabby either. Pretty brilliant.
