mathieuc (3791) - Québec, Quebec, - DEC 27, 2012
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)

lebiochimiste (22) - - 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 (9933) - 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 (329) - 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 (2308) - 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 (2098) - 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.
