4oz pour on site at DDC. I was very looking forward to trying this one on site. The PMB ’15 on site was one of the best BA Stouts I’ve ever had and this one was very close. Classic Peche Mortel flavor profile. Smooth, roasty, coffee and cocoa notes throughout. Barrel heat. Sweet cognac and hot brandy boozy flavor. Wonderful. Full. thick and frothy mouthfeel. I very, very much liked this one. Delicious. rejtable (2753) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 11, 2017

Black with a small creamy tan head. Aroma is fruity coffee with some dark berry notes, hints of grapes, toffee, oak, brandy, cognac, cocoa, ash, some ink notes and light spiciness, vanilla. Tastes is medium sweet, malty smooth bitter coffee notes and light warming. Medium to full bodied, smooth texture, soft to average carbonation.
Finish is light fruity and warming brandy/cognac with a light vinous grape character, smooth bitter and creamy roasted coffee notes.
Nice one, smooth coffee notes with a slightly boozy vinous character.
(Bouteille provenant de la source): Sauce soya, chocolat en richesse, brandy sucré et parfumé, une chaleur de fudge chaud et une sécheresse à point. Très solide.

Black body, medium brownish white head. Aroma of cocoa, coffee, wood, vanilla, spicy, warm. Flavours of cocoa, coffee, brandy notes, wood, vanilla, cognac notes, warm. Long warm bitter cocoa with alcoholic notes finish, fairly dry at the end. Lots of different layers of complexity, very very nice. northropfrye (3643) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 7, 2016
Thanks Slovaksniper for this! Dark black body brown head. Amazing aroma of dry cocoa, coffee, malts, powder. Taste is sweet cocoa, bourbon, cola, dry cocoa. A bit of a boozy bite in the back of the throat. Fantastic. cards04 (2822) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 7, 2016
Thanks Northopfrye! What a treat. Big aromas of fresh coffee and cocoa beans. Flavours are coffee, dark malts, cocoa powder, and finishes with a beautiful warmth of the barrels it was aged in. dresden (1581) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - OCT 1, 2016
Nearly still black. Woody, boozy aroma. Fudgy chocolate, oak, light coffee, soy, lightly smoky. Really good, but hard to not think the barrel didnt necessarily make a great beer better. slowrunner77 (12147) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 17, 2016
From Youri. Dark dark brown w chocolate head. Coffee nose is initially green. But quickly settled into a well balanced decadence with coffee first, bitter roasted malt and cocoa, and a surprisingly well executed and well integrated barrel presence. Bitter & Sweet and decadent flavor as well. Wonderful sipper. Can the bourbon really be better than this?
