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.

Samuel214 (820) - SWEDEN - NOV 9, 2016
Fat på All In Beer Fest, Göteborg. Svart med tunt brunbeiget skum. Mycket kaffe, toffee, inlagda bär. Känns som en mer klassisk, lite kärvare IS. Riktigt bra!

MartySickGirl (3) - ITALY - OCT 25, 2016 does not count
Sotto una schiuma color cappuccino si nasconde una magnifica e nerissima Imperial Stout. Le note di caffè in chicchi tostati dominano il palato, insieme a piccoli frammenti di cacao amaro e frutta secca. Presente ma non aggressiva anche la sostenuta nota alcolica che ci regala un effetto warming davvero avvolgente. Ottima in abbinamento al cioccolato alle nocciole. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

lbianchi66 (349) - FRANCE - OCT 1, 2016
Robe noire et opaque. La mousse tient peu. Arômes intenses de café et fumé. Goût fumé, tourbe, chocolat, café. Le fumé reste en bouche avec une amertume prononcée. Excellente.
