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)

teddybeer (3526) - Madrid, SPAIN - NOV 3, 2016
3rd in my International Stout Day 2016. Black color with a beige head, shorto to medium retention, nice lacing. Aroma has notes of roasted malts, black ripe fruit with hints of bourbon. Flavor is slightly bittery, roasty, toasty, notes of coconut, good presence of alcohol and coffee beans with black chocolate. Light bitterness in the final, roasted mouthfeel. Dense and smooth on palate. One of the best Impy I’ve ever tasted...

Bottle shared by DalzAle. Pours black brown with a thin khaki film that dissipates. Aroma smooth meld of dark chocolate roasted malt vanilla faint bourbon. Taste is slightly bitter dark chocolate vanilla roasted malt coffee and mellow bourbon. Palate is full oily slightly chalky and warming with a dry finish.

Bottle from woodchopper on BA (thanks!) Dark black pour, thin chocolate head and an aroma of rich coffee, chocolate and hints of bourbon. Flavor is nice meld of boozy chocolate, fresh espresso and pleasant bourbon burn and flavor on the finish. Solid beer made even better with barrel aging.

ruigo (2476) - PORTUGAL - OCT 3, 2016
From bottle. Deep brown/black with a nice tan head. Vanilla, coffee, cocoa, dark chocolate, oak and bourbon in the aroma. Average carbonation and full body. Taste is roasted coffee at first followed by vanilla, cocoa and bourbon notes and again with a long roasted finish. Overall, a very good and complex beer.

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.
