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.

DiarmaidBHK (7738) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 18, 2022
UPDATED: MAY 18, 2022 Bottle at Armsby Abbey. Pours black with a thin khaki head. Leaves some trace lacing in the glass. Big coffee and roasted malt notes on the nose and tongue. Finished with some bitterness for balance. A lot of these stouts ended with burned malt or shit coffee but this one strikes the right balance of drinkability and presence.

UPDATED: MAY 16, 2022 11.5 ounce bottle. Opaque black pour. Frothy tan head. Dark roasted malt aroma has hints of molasses and chocolate. Roasted malt flavor upfront. Notes of bittersweet chocolate and coffee. Earthy and complex. Hints of red grape, port wine, licorice and charred wood. Tasty.

carlom (429) - ITALY - APR 3, 2022
UPDATED: APR 3, 2022 Colore nero, schiuma marrone poco persistente. Al naso malti tostati, caffè, liquirizia. Al palato caffè, cioccolato leggere note di thè. Finale decisamente secco ed amaro. Un birra molto ben fatta caratterizzata da note tostate molto accentuate, ben equilibrata per tutta la bevuta.

ReuvenSmienk (604) - Houten, NETHERLANDS - JAN 30, 2022
UPDATED: JAN 30, 2022 Zeer donkerbruin bier met een bruin schuimkraagje dat snel verdwenen is. De geur van koffie is overduidelijk aanwezig, maar ik bespeur ook wat mokka. Ook in de smaak is het koffie wat de klok slaat met een licht branderig mondgevoel, maar zachte afdronk.

jybi (2127) - Nouméa, NEW CALEDONIA - AUG 16, 2021
UPDATED: AUG 16, 2021 Café, café, café ! Voici le maître mot de ce péché mortel dont le brasseur a dû intégrer un maximum de café dans la recette. En termes d'intensité aromatique nous sommes donc ici servis et ce dès l'attaque, avec de surcroît un bon dosage amertume/alcool (à 9,5% soutenant bien la structure). De légères épices et des nuances de noisette, chocolat et caramel viennent tout de même compléter la palette aromatique. L'ajout de café amène forcément une petite astringence, notamment en seconde bouche, mais sans que cela ne soit trop prononcé. La texture est fine sans une grande sucrosité, ce qui la rend plus facile à boire, mais on en perd de la profondeur. Mais ce n'est clairement pas ce qui est recherché ici, tout comme pour la complexité. Du café, intense et brut, très bien fait.

GoufCustom (3017) - HONG KONG - MAY 23, 2021
UPDATED: MAY 23, 2021 341ml bottle with twisted cap bought at Cave Beer Point in Mei Foo. Looks: Opaque deep Cola blackish brown colour with a thin layer of dirt-like yeast sediments; Near zero head with residual soapy beige foam which fades in 10 seconds; Good sticky lacing and zero carbonation. Aroma: Very fragrant roasted dark malt, with potent alcohol, liquorices, black coffee, strong cream, chocolate, strong caramel, toffee, sugar, light biscuits, yeast, light lemon and light grass. Taste: Close to strong sweet dark malt, with strong roastyness, strong Chinese herbal tea, strong black coffee, strong burnt toffee, strong dark chocolate, cream, caramel, alcohol, Cola, floral, sugar, strong earth, spices, yeast, strong lime, strong bitter hops and grass. Body: Full body. Very slick palate. Mouth Feel: Strong dark maltyness in a thick and fairly viscous background. Immense Chinese herbal tea a la “24 Flavors” (廿四味) hit hard and fast - uniquely strong herbal bitter but pleasant sweetness - I have not tasted from any beer since City Brew’s 24 Flavors IPA, and that one actually was infused with Chinese herbs to recreate that flavor, so how this one achieve this is beyond me but it’s totally amazing! The usual RIS profiles of coffee, burnt toffee, chocolates and cream are overshadowed by the herbal greatness but still very much alive, with booze being very well hidden. Flowery with restrained and pleasant mid-to-strong sweetness. Earthy yeasty, strong limey hops with grass to round. What a blitz! Hoppiness: Light lemon and light grass in nose. Floral, strong earth, spices, strong lime, and grass in taste; Bitterness - malt and hops - is strong Chinese herbal and very subtle and for a lasting, high-level bitter roasted dark malty finish. After Taste: Fairly dry. Herbal burnt toffee and pleasantly strong bitter to mouth. Comments: Geez, this brewer never ceases to amaze me. Just when I thought its aroma is quiet and low-key at best, it hits with a fantastic, coffee-led, 24 Flavors-inspired taste of Chinese herbal tea and burnt toffee that is bold but so easy to drink and enjoy. Words are insufficient to describe how great this is. Tasting is believing!
