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)

Bottle via trade with Scopimus Maximus! Pours black with a medium brown head which soon disappears. Aroma is coffee and oak; quite subdued, I observe. Taste is roasty coffee, caramel sweet, vanilla oak, chocolate sweet. Medium bodied.

Poured deep dark brown with a dense beige head. Aroma of roast malt, vanilla smoothness, dark fruit, dark chocolate. Full body, flavour of the aroma, well balanced. Excellent.

341ml bottle (thx, Alex G.!). Bottled on 28-Apr-2016. Pours an almost black with a dark beige head. Aroma is coffee and some slight grassy and seeds notes. Taste is coffee, vanilla, roasted malt, some bourbon notes and booziness. Same aftertaste. This is a very good beer, but bourbon notes are almost hidden by the coffee ones, which are overwhelmed in this beer in my opinion. I would prefer more balance between coffee and bourbon.

marcus (9687) - Sacramento, California, USA - DEC 13, 2016
On tap at Final Gravity. Pours near black with a thick tan head and a chocolate and treacle aroma. There is a massive dark molasses flavor with some chocolate and a hint of coffee. Transitions smoothly into a warm bourbon trail. Exquisite!

teddybeer (3642) - 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...
