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.

An espresso imperial stout that is very smooth and soft on the palette. Has a big coffee bean aroma as you'd expect. Like a big old alcoholic black coffee. Start the day with one, end the day with one.

UPDATED: JAN 25, 2018 Pivo u flaši. Još jedan vrlo dobar Kanadski Imperial Stout. Kava, čokolada, tijelo je malko tanje ali okus je vrlo dobar. Alkohol je nešto izražajniji. Uglavnom jedan malo pitkiji Imp. Stout

Bottle from Dranken Geers, Oostakker. Shared with Anke. Pours cloudy black with a small, frothy, beige head. The aroma contains lots of coffee roast and roasted malt, some dark fruits and dark chocolate, bit of hops and cream. It tastes light mocha-like sweet and light to medium roasted (almost 'coffee powder'-like) bitter; dry, roasted finish, some warming alcohol. Full body, slick texture, soft carbonation. Good, and it delivers what it promises; but perhaps a bit too 'compulsive' in its coffee character?

11.5floz bottle, BOD: 03.06.2017, $4, large stem glass. Appears near black with a thin brown head. Smells sugary sweet like cookies with some extra brown sugar. Smells like coffee with a good dose of woodsy smokiness. This beer strikes the palate heavy. with broad roasty strokes of 'Colombian' type of coffee (general medium roast coffee), and dry cocoa To abruptly sum it up, this double stout is balanced goodness. I could rate a couple ticks lower for being unexceptional, but it is a genuine solid brew - so no I won't.

UPDATED: JAN 13, 2018 On nitro in Berlin's Muted Horn. Pours black with creamy head. Aroma: coffee clearly dominates, followed by chocolate and a bit of charcoal. Taste, coffee and chocolate forward, with a touch of alcohol.

4.3
Patersoi (192) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 13, 2018
Oily black pour. Malt, chocolate and alcohol on the nose. Coffee and charcoal added to the mix in terms of flavour along with an ever present glow of alcohol. More charcoal on the finish but a little bit of sickly malt in there too. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
