COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Péché Mortel (French for "Mortal Sin") is an intensely black and dense beer with very pronounced roasted flavours. Fair trade coffee is infused during the brewing process, intensifying the bitterness of the beer and giving it a powerful coffee taste. Péché mortel is brewed to be savored; we invite you to drink it in moderation.

This stout style, high in alcohol and bitterness in order to favour preservation, was historically brewed to support the long and arduous voyage necessary to export the beer from England to Russia. The word Imperial comes from the fact that the beer was specially brewed for the Russian tsar’s court.

341ml bottle served in a tulip glass. A: First of all, the most beautiful bottle art ever. Dieu du Ciel trademark. The beer pours a deep black Imperial Stout color forming a one to two fingers brown moka-style head. Thin bubbled and creamy. Retention is low but many spotty molasses lacings are left in the glass as it goes... S: Strong roasted malts on the nose, followed by notes of coffee and dark chocolate. A bit milky with some notes of wood too T: Follow the nose. Strong notes of roasted malts. Notes of coffee and dark chocolate. The upfront is slightly sweet becoming deliciously bitter quite quickly. Absolutely delicious roasted bitterness in the end. Again, a bit lactic and woody M: Creamy, heavy molasses body. Low carbonation. Roasted bitterness aftertaste O: Delicious Imperial Stout. I was expecting more coffee but, in the end an excellent experience anyway [ BA Review @ 4/4/2013 ]

Almost black. Large coffee bean aroma - not as vegetal as most so that is a good start. Some chocolate in there as well. Oily, smooth body. Alcohol, rich malt (creamy, decadent), with the beans coming through at the end.

Mocha mousse with rum-raisins, chocolate syrup drizzling over a whipped cloud of Turkish Delight, dark bitterseet thick coffee arm-wrestles for control as the velvety nectar slips effortlessly down...

Tap. Pours pitch black with huge creamy mocca brown head. Aroma is big on coffe, some wood, dark chocolate, sugary caramel. Slight roast in the background an I do catch some subtle hop. Taste is pure coffee at first. Behind there is some sweet milk chocolate too. Roasty medium bitter dry finish. Smooth carbonation. Really drinkable! Maybe best coffee I have had.

A big coffee flavoured imperial stout. Black soloured. Coffee fragrant. Big soft maltyness, very salty, burnt flavours. A tasty, dangerous potion reminding of Irish coffee.

Bottle @ Ölrepubliken. Served a little bit too cold. Color is dark red-brown, minimal head. Aroma of coffee, hints of smoke and red berries. Low sweetness, moderate bitterness. Long aftertaste, really tasty.

BOTTLE. Shared RW. Motor oil black with solid brown/orange head. Heavy smell of coffee beans, with that burnt coffee slapping your taste buds up front. Finishes with a creamy bitter coffee. Solid lacing left over. Sourced Capel Cellarbrations
