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)

From Youri. Nice beer but gotta give the head to head to the non top 50 cognac/Brandy version. This one was a little tougher around the edges and the coffee was more covered up. "Just" very good instead of great.

Bottle courtesy of a friend. Cheers, friend! Pours a deep stout brown with a tan head. Nose is earth, chocolate, roast, oak, vanilla, and bourbon. Flavor hits with earth, roast, bourbon, cocoa, vanilla, and slight booze. Medium in body, earthy in bitterness, and an enjoyable beer, but a bit earthier than I like my BA stouts.

12oz pour on site at DDC. I was very excited to try this one due to how delicious the original Péché Mortel is and this did not disappoint at all. Has got to be the best stout I’ve ever had. Smooth, roasty, coffee and cocoa notes throughout. Trace amount of berries which comes naturally in most imperial stouts. Great alcohol taste as well. Unbelievable.

Adamsville (214) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 30, 2016
Apparence : Noire opaque, pratiquement aucun col brun foncé sans rétention, carbonatation semble moyenne et lente.
Nez : Café, alcool, léger boisé.
Goût : Café, chocolat noir mi-amer, léger alcool, notes de bourbon en finale au fond de la gorge, sucre grillé.
Sensation : Pleine, effervescence moyenne, chaleur d’alcool moyenne, piquant sur la langue, longue finale en amertume de torréfaction et de café.
Bref : Intense et excellente! Différente, mais tout aussi bonne que sa version régulière. Le tout est très bien équilibré : le café, la torréfaction, l’amertume, le sucre résiduel. Le corps est intéressant. Très belle réussite!

intense bourbon and coffee notes, both superior quality. Velvety nice mouthfeel and long aftertaste. When I drink this beer I usually trying to find out whether I like this or the basic PM better, sometimes I feel that the other has so good coffee taste, that the oak aging ruins it a little bit, sometimes I feel, that tha aging gives an extra to it and makes it interesting. Anyway, very good beer.

2010 vintage, thanks to Armin! Pours a dark brown, near black. Thin brown head with light lacing. Oily on the glass. Aromas of bold coffee. For a 2010 vintage this coffee smelled fresh. Very little hint if oxidation. Light oak, vanilla and just a hint if bourbon. Taste has a nice dark roast, medium heavy body. Great mouthfeel. Slick, oily but balanced with flashes of dry coffee. Light sweetness, light bitter. Incredible balance. Really blown away by the delicate barrel integration. Extremely impressed by this beer.

Très Bourbon mais finalement se boit bien et tient la distance. Bière atypique quand même.

Nez : explosion bourbon. Hallucinant. Très fort. Fond légèrement café mais tellement faible derrière le bourbon. Bouche : attaque torréfiée et tout de suite explosion bourbon, beaucoup de vanille, de biscuit, fond noix de coco, retour du torréfié et finale très bourbon. Ce bourbon n’est vraiment pas éc?urant, quasiment noble, vieilli. Cette bière a une superbe complémentarité entre la torréfaction et le vieillissement bourbon. Elle a également un corps assez extrême : énorme présence. Le côté éthylique est faussement perceptible vu la puissance du bourbon : en fait l’alcool est tout à fait modéré. Excellente, mais je préfère la version cognac et brandy.

Rate 2001. 12oz bottle from trade with Luc. Thanks! 2013 edition. So, it’s a bit old at this point. Pours dark brown with a beige ring. Aroma is green pepper up front. Dammit! Dark chocolate, overextracted coffee. Flavor is dark chocolate, mild pepper, overextracted coffee. This is still pretty smooth and pretty good, but the coffee in it has turned. If you get your hands on this, drink it fresh.
