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.

Pitch black color, medium sized brown head. Aromas of coffee, chocolate, cacao, lactose and slight vanilla. Bitter taste with roasted coffee beans, roasted malt, cacao and wood. A bit too much coffee for my taste.

UPDATED: MAR 30, 2018 On tap in Canada. Pours very dark with a small head. This isnt smooth but is a great drink. Has the flavours of chocolate and small amouts of coffee. Would of prefered more chocolate than coffee. But this is good enough and the only imperial Russian stout that ive found

UPDATED: MAR 28, 2018 Tap (Szynkarnia, Wrocław). Black with small, beige head and great lacing. Aroma is full of fresh beans coffee and small sweet note of noble alcohol. First sip is dry, full of coffee but the finish is sweet, long, very nice. Beer is full body, dense, smooth and the coffee rules in it. Generally the beer is very tasty for loooong tasting.

UPDATED: MAR 28, 2018 Tap (Szynkarnia, Wrocław) W aromacie dominuje kawa. Po wypiciu na początku atakuje wytrawna kawa która następnie wraz ze spływaniem do gardła dostaje słodkich akcentów. W posmaku dominuje kawowa gorycz. Ogólnie piwo jest bardzo dobre, ale trochę monotematyczne. Przydałoby się trochę urozmaicić tę kawę

Klasyczny kawowoy RIS. W aromacie bardzo intensywnie, pralinki kawowe z odrobiną kakao. Brak piany. W smaku mocno kawowe, mocno jednowymiarowe i na dłuższą metę po prostu nudne. Ciało ok, fajna aksamitność, ale dla mnie do wypicia na raz, bez dłuższego zapamiętania.

mgajdaczewa (2454) - Katowice, POLAND - MAR 26, 2018
Ris w starym stylu idealnie trafiający w moje gusta. Dużo czekolady deserowej i kawy w aromacie, do tego ciemne ciasto, trochę paloności. W smaku podobnie, pełno, gęsto, czekoladowo, ale niezbyt słodko i ze sporą goryczką. Świetna kawowość. Idealnie skryty alkohol. Zachwyty zasłużone.

Flaska beställd från SB. Svart med ljusbrunt skum. Doft av kaffe med mjölk och lite choklad. Rejält med kaffe i smaken.

snowcrash000 (215) - Cologne, GERMANY - MAR 24, 2018
Pours a pitch black coloration with a medium, creamy head. Smell is dominated by roasted coffee and malt, with hints dark chocolate and tobacco. Taste follows the nose, being dominated by slightly sweet roasted coffee and malt, with hints of dark, bitter chocolate, toffee and tobacco. There are also subtle notes of dark fruit and and spice: nutmeg, vanilla, along with a certain earthy, musty, woody character. Finishes with a medium/strong bitterness. Smooth mouthfeel with a medium body and low carbonation. This immediately reminded me of FBS, but it's more coffee-forward, with less chocolate and a lot more complex. A little sweeter and less bitter as well. Quite complex and well-balanced, actually. Even though the coffee flavour is huge, it's not overpowering and there are a lot more subtle nuances to this.
