4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
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)

Draft at Beavertown Extravaganza 2017 - London. Pours black-brown with a foamy, tan head. Good roast abounds, with plenty of burnt toast, baking cocoa and milk chocolate, some dried berries. Full bodied, chewy, with average carbonation. Finishes with moderate boozy warmth, some dry milk chocolate, nice roasted malts. Great stuff overall. Well worth its reputation.

Tap, been wanting this for a long time and I finally get to try this! Black color with beige head. Aroma is coffee, touch vanilla. Taste is coffee, a touch caramel, vanilla, super-balanced, no flavour overpowers the others. Medium carbonation, oily moutfeel. Massive beer, the barrel lifts the heavy coffee dryness of Péché Mortel without making it a Bourbon Bomb. Amazing stuff, masterpiece even. klm1 (1844) - Bled/SF, - SEP 9, 2017
