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)

La version en fut de bourbon est délicieuse. Il arrive souvent qu’un vieillissement en fût fait disparaître des flaveurs de la version originale, mais ce n’est pas le cas avec celle-ci. Oui il y a une grande présence de vanille, mais le café et la torréfaction sont encore bien présents. En fait, j’ai un peu l’impression de boire un café vanille française alcoolisé. C’est vraiment très bon!!!

Bottle, shared at RBAG 2014, but I think I’m the only one out of all of us who hasn’t yet rated this! Thanks to Blake for bringing this along! Viscous near-black, densely malty with tons of fresh coffee roast character from the base beer, but with a heavy bourbon presence of equal magnitude. The flavour density here is insane! Finish is a tad boozy, but not unpleasantly so. Wow!

I opened this two year old bottle at foofaa’s while he smoking a whole bunch of chicken for dinner. Thanks for hosting buddy.

A - Pours pitch black with a small half finger tall tan head, quickly dissipating down to a thin film, leaving no lace at all on the glass. Rather dead if I’m honest.

S - Smells of deeply roasted coffee, oak, vanilla, chocolate, caramel, dark roasted malt, warm bourbon booze. Still has quite a bit of coffee for its overall age, pretty impressive aroma.

T - Starts off with a mild coating sweetness - mainly the chocolate, vanilla and fresh toffee - quickly being joined by the warm bourbon, woody oak and plenty of dark roast. Finish is pretty dry thanks to all the roast and booze, lingering long after the finish.

M - Heavy body with moderate to low carbonation. This is definitely a big beer but the feel kind of got away from it. If it could be bumped up a bit this one would be money.

O - I had wanted to try this one for awhile and I am glad I finally got to try it. It still packs plenty of the base flavors and the bourbon is a complement rather than the star, as it always should be. I would love to have this again.

ljthiessen (322) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUN 5, 2014
Bottle, thanks to SlovakSniper. Inky black pour with a medium tan head. Lots of bourbon, coffee, vanilla and chocolate in the aroma, and a touch of oak and red fruits. Flavour is the same, with a nicely balanced bourbon finish and a very silky smooth sweet chocolate and coffee flavour. This is a fantastic imperial stout.

cards04 (1637) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 30, 2014
Thanks alehunter for this gem. This is insane. Massive vanilla, bourbon, and chocolate fudge aromas. Chocolate chip cookies too. Thick black pour with quickly disappearing head. Sweet and smooth with a bitter coffee after taste. Vanilla, semisweet chocolate, oak, ash. All things good in a glass is what this is. Phenomenal.

Bottle. Pours a brown-black with pale moka head, long lasting ring of foam. Rich and multi-layered coffee. Fresh cream and just the right amount of "green" reminiscent of kopi. Aromatic bourbon. Taste is huge roasted coffee bitterness, light dark chocolate and licorice. The bourbon presence is reconforting. This is a rich low sugar bourbon imperial stout that suceeds in being truly flavorful. Very close to the bests in this highly competitive category.

Poured deep dark brown with a dense beige head. Aroma of roast malt, vanilla smoothness, dark fruit, dark chocolate. Full body, flavour of the aroma, well balanced. Excellent.
