Thanks to Tommy for sending a bottle my way! Pours out a fairly viscous, deep dark brown with decent tan foam. Aroma on this beer is quite nice - tons of fresh bitter coffee, a touch of vanilla and bourbon, and some rich chocolate malt. Flavor is not quite as nice as the aroma indicates - still lots of coffee, but it’s a touch weaker and more bitter than in the regular peche. The barrel characteristic is subtle, but noticible. The flavor has all the right pieces, but for whatever reason doesn’t come together as well as in my favorite BA coffee stouts (bourbon county, KBS). BB Peche is a touch dry and closer to medium bodied than full bodied.

Pours a nice creamy dark black with a thin lasting off beige head and great lace. Aroma is a nutty creamy smooth big espresso- earth, leather, and light but balanced bourbon- good vanilla mixing with the chocolate and roasted coffee. Smooth bourbon in the flavor- very subtle and acts to blend the beer together better- smooth yet intense coffee, vanilla, chocolate, toasty, nutty and some earth.

This is what a barrel aged beer should taste like. Pours a beige mocha head atop an opaque body. Nose of bourbon and vanilla. Very alcohol of aroma yet nose absent of the familiar coffee base. Very smooth, velvety. I love this. Wonderful. Purchased at Metro Liquor for $4.55 per 355ml bottle. Thanks Drew!

341ml bottle from Brewdog online store. Pours black with a tan head leaving lacing and aroma of leather, smoke, wood, vanilla, bourbon. Flavour is earthy, ash, leather, dark chocolate, coffee, woody, bourbon, grassy bitter. Smooth & heavy mouthfeel, medium to full bodied, soft carbonation, woody vanilla and boozy finish. Nicely drinkable.

341ml bottle from Brewdog Online Shop. Pours dark brown, thick tan head. Aromas of fresh coffee, bourbon notes, vanilla, boozy, near whisky in fact. Taste is dark chocolate, more vanilla bourbon, coffee. Sweet, boozy finish. Nicely done, but have had better in the style.

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.

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.

Dark brown pour, tan head. Nose is big coffee, booze, dark fruits. Taste is fresh coffee, chocolate, dark fruits, smoothness from the barrel. Light silky smooth mouthfeel which works for this beer.
