Craft Clerkenwell. Martin T tasting. Opaque black - brown beer. Good tan head. Light frothy palate. Mild minerals. A little barrel induced paint ester. Mild creamy dark malt. Touches of wood and mellow dark chocolate. Light malty finish. Overall mellow and as usual with Dieu du Ciel never as good as you hope it’s going to be.

Draught at Steel Toad, Vancouver
Black color, beige creamy head. huge Bourbon aroma and flavor, the bourbon adds some booziness, but it also mellows out the roastiness, so this one is my favorite version this year at Peché Days.

Bottle at the Martin T tasting, CBC, 06/06/13 - thanks to Martin T himself for this highly regarded impy. Mid black with a big frothy dirty tan head - this looks the bollocks! Nose is dark malt, roast, woody notes, bourbon tones, dark chocolate, mineral notes. Taste comprises bitter chocolate, mineral bite, light booze, brown sugars, woody bourbon note but subtly integrated. Full bodied, fine carbonation, good tickle of bourbon on the finish. Great stuff - lives up to its high ratings, alcochol is well integrated and the flavours meld together well without the BBA ever becoming overbearing.

Bottle thanks to BlackIPA! Thanks, brohammed! Black pour with a nice mocha head. Huge coffee and chocolate aromas. Nice roasted malt, mild bourbon, vanilla, and some oak. A bit spicy, too. The flavor is quite nice. Great coffee, dark chocolate, and some vanilla, and a hint of bourbon. Plenty of roasted malt, spicy coffee, and some oak. Maybe a bit of booze.

Oakes (15651) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 29, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 27, 2016 2016 rating: PM Day, Steel Toad. Very dark but with a bubbly, darker, non-nitro head. There’s a lot of bourbon in this, with a rich sticky dark malt character. The richest, with the sweeter vanilla character. Almost too much.

2012 rating: Draught @ the brewpub. Dark brown. Super rich with vegetal-tasting coffee. Soft body with sweet dark sugars and muted maple coffee richness. Decadent at first, turning a bit hot in the finish. Good, but I think the added creaminess simplifies the palate too much. 6 3 7 3 14 = 3.3

341mL bottle, sent from Glouglouburp (thanks so much, Dany!), pours black with a small light brown head. First thing noticeable on the nose is the strong coffee, which haven’t been muted by the barrels. Then some woody oak presence, slightly smoky / peaty notes and then the bourbon. Flavour reveals a complex bourbony-heavy body, though not too overbearing to diminish the base beer’s complexity. The coffee notes are still certainly present, followed by bourbon notes, wood, and loads of alcohol. The aftertaste is dominating the barrels, with a noticeably burning alcohol sensation. While the prevalent alcohol makes this less drinkable, it also adds a layer of complexity to the already decadence regular Péché Mortel. Most excellent.
