OK, now this is awesome. I never liked the regular Pêché Mortel to the cult level some people seemed to have vowed for it. But now the BA version, oh god! I believe I can say without a doubt that this is the best aroma I have ever encountered in a beer: coffee, booze, sweetener... just like that special coffee you drink on Christmas morning with grandma (coffee-brandy). There is even a caramel-like quality to it. The beverage itself is pitch black with a small moka head that leaves some nice lacing on the oversized snifter it came with. Taste is coffee, intense coffee (a good one too) and bourbon. Alcohol is well hidden, but it does relax your joints and muscle good like a fine spirit after a hard day at work. It is so creamy it is almost surreal... I never thought it would be this good and now it just slipped into my top 10, good job DDC! (P.S. You should note that I don’t like stouts that much usually)

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.

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

umich03jm (3100) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - DEC 18, 2015
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.

Bottle thanks to Pat. Nose is huge in vanilla and bourbon. Lots of marshmallow and some light graham cracker. Maybe s’mores. Pitch black no head. Taste is similar but with a touch more roast and coffee. Moderate woody tannins lend an astringency as well. More chocolate than aroma too. Slight alcohol warming. Pretty dang tasty but could tone down the abv better. My ears are warming up!

A pretty great imperial stout. Hugely chocolately with some nice hints of licorice and vanilla.

Nocturne (1462) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2015
341ml bottle. Dark black. One finger of brown head. Aroma is fruity, chocolate, nice espresso coffee. Barrel is subtle. On the tongue nice coffee and dark chocolate flavours. Taste has a faint charred wood, but again, barrel is light. Smooth, easy drinking, no heat. I like it but was a bit underwhelmed, especially with how light the barrel feels.

ctipping (697) - Florida, USA - JUN 23, 2015
12 oz. bottle poured into a snifter. Black. Small khaki head. Not quite inky black. Smell is Bourbon. Lots of coffee. Fudgy chocolate. Very nice. Sharp bourbon taste. Coffee is sharp too. Works well together. Fudgy and chocolatey. Light coffee bitterness. A little boozy. Medium heavy. Medium low carbonation. Awesome stuff. Hard to decide if it’s better than the base.
