Alengrin (5629) - BELGIUM - OCT 10, 2017
At Gollem, Antwerp. Lighter version of this famed Canadian stout, with lightly lacing, pale greyish beige, moussy head quickly opening in the middle, and blackish robe with translucent, hazy mahogany edges. Aroma of beef stock cubes, butterscotch, coffee powder, baked black olives, bitter chocolate, old nut shells, dried thyme, hint soy sauce. Restrained dried fruit sweetishness drenched in fairly thick, beef stock- and somewhat soy sauce-like umami, sourish roasted barley, dry, medium carbo, smooth and 'fatty', oily mouthfeel. Nutty malt body, bitter chocolate, hard butterscotch, sourishness continuing in a quite pronounced way but covered in this nutty, toasty maltiness and a spicy but soft roastedness of old black coffee; spicy hop note as well. Remarkably full-bodied for a 6% ABV stout, but a tad too much in umami and old nutshell and old coffee sourishness for me, this is not quite at the same quality level as the original for me.

Bottle served in a snifter. Celebrating my rainless Typhoon Day (paid day off!) with a Dieu du Ciel Veniel Peche Mortel. This also marks the 18th Anniversary of their Montreal brewpub and my decision to visit my hometown for Christmas. I paired it with a curry and the nose was a lovely soft spicy sweet coffee. Medium to light bodied with a sharp carbonation. The taste is balanced coffee and I'd say this lower ABV take on their classic coffee stout should not remain a one off. It pairs well with curry accentuating the earthy mushroom and curry roue flavors. Tasty lunch!

Bottle. Dark brown pour with a tan head. Aroma is malty chocolate, some nice coffee as well. Taste is fairly bitter, a little roasty, not a ton of body behind it but nice chocolate and coffee.

Bouteille 2016-11-11. Un liquide brun avec une mousse teinte par les malts noirs. Un nez intense de café et de caramel. Une bouche souple et soyeuse avec une tonne de café bien amère, du chocolat, du caramel. Franchement très bonne.

On tap at Isle de Garde in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Pours nearly opaque brown-black with tan head and lacing. Aroma: raisins, hot milk. Flavor: molasses, lactose, smoke. Mouthfeel: light-bodied, yet creamy. Very dry finish and clean. A bit too watery, though.

bb (9697) - Alamo, California, USA - MAY 28, 2017
Draft. Black beer with a brown head. Light coffee and light chocolate aroma with light citrus. Roasty flavor with coffee and light nuttiness. Medium bodied. Roast and coffee lingers with light chocolate.

Une bière noire, avec une fine ligne de mousse, ainsi qu’une petite effervescence. Au nez, le café est bien présent, un peu comme avec la péché classique, avec un certain arôme de chocolat qui s’ajoute au goût. En bouche, l’amertume astringente est définitivement ce que l’on goûte le plus. Le café est présent, avec le gout de grain frais qui apporte de la profondeur à cette amertume, de même qu’un peu de chocolat en finale. Change pas tellement de la Péché classique, avec peut-être un tout petit peu moins de rondeur, somme toute, et une finale un peu sèche. Toujours une bonne bière.

Johnsense (1734) - - APR 28, 2017
Pitch black pour, about half of the glass is head. Espresso, spent coffee grounds, roasted malt in the aroma and taste, dark chocolate. Slight acidity. Less boozy and intense than regular Peche.

AlainG (2342) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 28, 2017
Noire à la mousse persistante. Ça sent en effet le café et ce, d’une belle façon. Il y a aussi des arômes de mélasse, de grain grillé, à la limite du brûlé et d’autres, moins prononcées, d’herbes. Les saveurs sont semblables avec une douce amertume qui joue sur plusieurs fronts. C’est presque acidulé. La texture est soyeuse et ça picote un peu la langue. On est pas loin de l’originale.
