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.

Drank at ZeeBra 2015 (20-6-2015), thanks Michael for sharing. A thin beer, very ’raw’ beer. Hard hints of roasted coffeebeans, very dominant. Also bitter.

Dégusté en bouteille de 341ml et en fût chez DDC à Montréal. De couleur noir le liquide est complètement opaque. Une mousse beige de densité moyenne est présente. Arôme de grain torréfié et de café. Goût de café et de céréales rotties. Belle rondeur en bouche, quasiment crémeuse. Une finale longue sur des notes de café et une amertume moyenne. Il s’agit d’un produit exceptionnel.

Tap at brewery. Black with one finger lasting head. Strong coffee. Smooth creamy body with nice mouthfeel. Under carbonated, but it works well.

Au nez, une légère odeur de chocolat qui s’exprimera un peu plus au fur et à mesure de l’aeration, une odeur boisée soutenu par un fruit confit (genre pruneau) qui donne un faux-air d’armagnac. En bouche, elle est très épaisse et assez ronde. Le chocolat/café explose littéralement. La torréfaction finit un peu en amer portée par un alcool assez présent ce qui peut être dérangeant. Pour ceux qui pourraient craindre l’amer/alcool trop fort, je recommande l’Imperial stout de Camba.

Très bonne stout avec fort goût de café. Café seulement, aucun goût de caramel (comparativement avec ça petite soeur). Belle amertume, naturellement. Bien bon.

Pours a solid black with brown foam and lacing. It has a rich coffee and toasty malt aroma. The flavor is rich coffee and toast up front with a nut and chocolate backbone and bitter coffee finish over a heavy body.

Keg at Brewdog Edinburgh. Pours black. Strong coffee beans and espresso on the nose, roasted malts. Delicious. Taste is also plenty of coffee and roasts. Quite sweet.

Bottle from Saveur Bière. Lively and creamy head. Distinct coffee aroma. A lot of coffee in the taste, with some vanilla and roasted coffe beans and a lot of bitterness. A very well balanced brew.
