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.

12oz bottle from new beer distributors in manhattan. dark brown color with a medium pillowy brown head that stick around. roasted coffee and chocolate aroma. expected coffee flavor with a moderately bitter ashy aftertaste. also some nuttiness in the taste. palate is medium to thin - but is still creamy. as a coffee lover, this one was right up my alley. K-8

Mérite pleinement sa place dans le top 50. Du café en bouteille. World class.

Bottle, thx to NoiZe. Pitch black colour, tan head. Aroma has bitter chocolate, coffee and roasted malts. Flavour has initially bitter coffe, but gets smoother with roasted malts. Long lasting aftertaste of bittersweet chocolate malts. Impressive!

Bottle. Strong coffee, roasted malt and chocolate. Oooh its fighting, strong coffee coming through. Jet black appearance. Very crisp stained brown frothy head. Very impressive flavours in this beer. Coffee, chocolate fighting to be the most dominant. Cant make out if it wants to be a bitter chocolate milkshake or an iced coffee. Very tasty stout with the boot to kick you in the arse, but it does it so delicately. This brewery has impressed me once again. Great stuff.

i finally get this off my wishlist (originally put on 9/18/2006) ... from LS .. lots of chocolate, tobacco, and coffee aroma’s ... great brad pitt lacing ... it really coats the mouth so wonderfully .. very nice aftertaste ... is roasty and has an espresso/ chocolate battle going on ... not overdone, but very bold .. a great brew!

Wow beautiful pour and it smells like a coffee shop. Bittering mocha aromas balanced with chocolate and vanilla whispers, but the aroma is dominated by a prevalent and bittering coffee influence. The taste mirrors the aroma and doesnt evolve much past that. smells and looks great, and is a tasty brew yet I somehow wished it could have taken it to the next level of the perfect beer. Still very good.

I’m really pumped that I can now buy this beer in my local dépanneur because this may be my favorite beer, or at least my favorite stout. It pours black and leaves a small dark brown head. So much flavor you can taste it before it touches your mouth. Great brew.

This is one great beer. A terrific Imperial Stout with that beautifully balanced addition of coffee. I could drink this every day.

pours an oily black with a thick light brown head. aroma is sweet and balanced of coffee and chocolate. first sip is strong of coffee, but as the beer warms, there are more noticeable flavors of hops, chocolate, a little bit of pepper, and spice. mouth is close to perfect, simply smooth on the tongue. I’m a big fan of coffee stout so when I saw this at Whole Foods and immediatly knew it had to be a winner.

Bottle courtesy of growler. Pours deep black with tan head. Strong burnt malt aroma. Lots of coffee and roasted malt flavors. Full body with minimal carbonation and a very smooth mouthfeel.
