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.

Black and opaque, medium tanned head. Aroma of coffee, bitter chocolate and roasted malts. Flavour of chocolate, a bit sweetish, roasty bitterness - very well balanced. Full body, fruity-roasty-sweet finish.

Deep dark and complex. Cocoa, smooth despite the alcohol. Big with some fruit, maybe dark cherry. Absolutely delicious.

Eccellente stout dal colore quasi nero e dalla bella schiuma marrone persistente. Aroma delizioso di caffè, molto presente anche al palato insieme alle note di cacao e malto tostato. Sapore lungo e deciso, birra quasi oleosa e l’alcol si lascia assaporare solo dopo alcuni secondi. Assolutamente da provare.

MarcoDL (2833) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 20, 2015
Bottle. Black pour, small brown head. Aroma of roasted coffee and milk chocolate. Taste of roasted coffee, dark cacao and bitter hops, dry bitter finish, but somehow also fruity with a little cherry. Warm glowing aftertaste. Solid coffee stout, real tasty.

C’est un grand jour pour moi - celui où je m’accorde le droit d’écrire sur cette bière de renom qui à juste titre emplit d’orgueil chaque Québécois amateur de bière! Le liquide est Noir comme la nuit et d’une densité quasi aphrodisiaque(!). En la faisant danser dans le verre, on voit que cette bière à un corps exceptionnel, tant la mousse remue langoureusement et séduit l’observateur situé de l’autre côté du verre. Le nez est d’une complexité remarquable - largement dominé par le grain de café frais et où s’entremêlent également des arômes de vanille, de cuir et de tabac. Le palais est absolument parfait: le liquide est d’une structure imposante tout en étant d’une légèreté féérique. C’est rond, juste assez amer, gazéifié sans trop l’être toutefois... un corps de déesse Inca. La texture est sublime! Les saveurs sont parfaitement en accord avec les arômes révélées par les arômes. Cette bière accompagnera à merveille des desserts tels la crème brûlée, une éclair au chocolat ou le gâteau Opéra. Je termine en félicitant et remerciant Dieu Du Ciel de ne pas avoir joué la carte de la rareté pour rendre cette bière prestigieuse. Elle l’est naturellement, disponible à l’année et partout ainsi qu’à un coût qui défie n’importe-quel autre brasseur cherchant à lui faire compétition. C’est un privilège que de boire cette bière et j’en suis reconnaissant à chaque gorgée!

The Péché Mortel opens with an amazing aroma, drawing fond memories of a fine espresso on a Sunday morning as the first waft massages your senses and tempts you to taste it. Deeply coloured and thick with an almost oily texture, the Mortel is akin more to a spirit then a beer. The first sip assails the taste buds, reinforcing the coffee scent with a deliciously complex coffee and stout blend, underpinned by sweet sugars that are almost undetected as you savour the stronger notes. Worth visiting multiple times on cold, wet nights, to draw out fond memories and warm the spirit. Frangimus

Bottle from Halles St-Jean. Aroma: coffee, toast, roasty malt, dark fruits. App: pitch black with small brown head. Taste and palate: smooth full body, medium sweetness, light-medium bitter finish. Overall: this is so smooth, it’s like eating a cake. Wow! An amazing stout from DDC.
