readbaron (78) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 27, 2012
Thanks to Tommy for sending a bottle my way! Pours out a fairly viscous, deep dark brown with decent tan foam. Aroma on this beer is quite nice - tons of fresh bitter coffee, a touch of vanilla and bourbon, and some rich chocolate malt. Flavor is not quite as nice as the aroma indicates - still lots of coffee, but it’s a touch weaker and more bitter than in the regular peche. The barrel characteristic is subtle, but noticible. The flavor has all the right pieces, but for whatever reason doesn’t come together as well as in my favorite BA coffee stouts (bourbon county, KBS). BB Peche is a touch dry and closer to medium bodied than full bodied.

ciocanelu (2054) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - APR 5, 2017
Really dark brown color with tan head. Aroma has dusty wood barrel notes with a bit of whiskey. Taste has bitter chocolate and cacao, wood barrel, some scotch, medium roasty bitterness on the finish. Medium to full bodied, smooth carbonation. Overall it’s a good imperial stout but the barrel treatment is not that great.

lebiochimiste (24) - - MAR 20, 2017
Dark chocolate, coffee and alcohol on the nose, dark and deep black color. Timid foam. You definitely feel the bourbon in the mouth. We’ll balanced with the coffee. Bold and rich. I should have bought another case!

gnoff (10072) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - MAR 15, 2017
Draught at Brewers Beer Bar, Göteborg, during Péché Mortel day, March 11, 2017.
Black color, light brown head with lacing. Big, sweet, bourbon taste. Bourbon aftertaste. Medium big though fizzy mouthfeel, medium bitterness. Bourbon, alcohol scent.
I can see how many would feel the bourbon character takes over way too much, but it does good things for me this one.

rumore (386) - Rimini, ITALY - MAR 15, 2017
From the tap at FOB, Rimini, Italy. Pours black with cappuccino foam, limited and fine. Aroma is rich: coffee, cocoa, roasted malt, hazelnut. Body is dense, with quite some nose- and tongue-tickling, limited carbonation. Taste is equally rich as aroma: it starts sweet, but quickly turn mildly bitter, with a wonderful cherry/chocolate feeling. Final is long and very pleasant.

adamnowek (2401) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAR 14, 2017
Deep black. Colossal, dense head with a mocha colour. Aroma is some bourbon and a bit of nail polish. Taste is bourbon, Bailey’s, and bittersweet chocolate. Fucking glorious.

Tasted from the tap at Muted Horn. Deep dark with a dominating whisky nose. Smooth and well balanced aromas. One of worlds best B.A. beers.

Nische (2120) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 12, 2017
Tap at Peche Day 2017. Pours pitch black with disappearing brown head. Heavy bourbon aroma and taste with quite a lot of boozy notes shining through. A bit of chocolate, toast and as it warms quite a bit of dill. My least favorite of the six at Peche day.
