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.

Aromat: czekolada z kawą, bardzo intensywny, aromatyczny, wyrazisty, nie za słodki, nie za wytrawny. Wygląd: czarne, smoliste, pianka dosyć wysoka, brunatna, drobnopęcherzykowa, chwilę utrzymuje się. Smak: dużo gorzkiej czekolady, krem czekoladowy, kawa, takie czekoladki kawowe, trochę nut palonych, ciemne, świeże owoce, jakby czarne jagody. Kawa potwornie mocna i intensywna, jest tu motywem przewodnim. Charakter raczej wytrawny. Odczucie: spore ciało, gładka i puszysta tekstura, wysycenie niskie, alkohol całkiem ukryty, finisz gorzki. Całość: bogate, kawa nieco przegięta, przez nią piwo jest nieco jednowymiarowe i trudne w odbiorze. Cóż, piwa z tego browaru to jednak nie moja bajka, za wyjątkiem jednego IPA. Ale nie będę sobie wmawiał że mi smakują, jak mi nie smakują za bardzo.. 8/4/6/4/13

400th Beer Rating!

2 finger tan head. Pitch black beer.

Aroma is specialty coffee, charred wood, burnt coffee grounds, toasted nuts, roasted malts, slight hint of eucalyptus, slight fruit cake, caramel and vanilla.

Taste is burnt tobacco, leather, intense espresso, a smokey note and lightly salted nuts with a slight vanilla-like finish. At the very very back, there's a hint of nectarine. Only felt when the beer has warmed up a bit.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a slightly thin ending. Low carbonation. Medium bitterness.

Overall: Very good coffee based Impy. Have to praise this pretty high even though it's fundamentally not my type of Stout. Hugely roasty in the classical way with more focus on the burnt notes rather than the delicious, dark roast coffee style of roast. It is really good though, can't take that away. Ps. Forgot to drink something more special for my 400th rating but Dieu Du Ciel's beers aren't a common thing to see here in Sweden so it will have to do!

Pośród typowych dla Stoutów palonych nut - tutaj dość mocnych - jest jakaś dobra, palona kawa. Piwo jest jednak gładkie w odbiorze. Nie dzieje się wiele - kawa, czekolada, fajne nitro. Jest świetnie poskładane. Czy warte pieniędzy - inna sprawa.

Coffee, chocolate, caramel and rosted malts in nose. Pours pitch black with tan head. Taste is sweet to medium sweet with coffee, chocolate, caramel and roastiness. Medium to high bitter finish, soft carbo, full to average body. Overall very good.

Pours with a quite thick brown head. Color is pitch black. Fresh aroma has brewed coffee, vanilla, baguette, wood, smoke. Palate is slightly watery, but not obviously. Could be smoother. Taste starts with noticeable bitter and burnt coffee taste that has some sweeter malt swirls in it. It's noticeably burnt and bitter though. It's quite strong. It has the sensation of drinking very strong espresso, so this beer should be very suitable for those that fancy such coffee taste. To me the taste is a bit too monotone, even though the intense coffee taste is quite good.

UPDATED: APR 9, 2018 W aromacie kawa i orzechy włoskie. W smaku mocno kwaskowate, trochę jak kwaśne mleko, co w tym wypadku zdecydowanie jest wadą. Alkohol średnio ukryty. Generalnie bardzo przeciętny Ris, spodziewałem sie czegoś lepszego.

Mariox (536) - Warsaw, POLAND - FEB 24, 2018
UPDATED: FEB 24, 2018 W aromacie głównie kawa, orzechy włoskie, popiół. W smaku półwytrawne ze sporą słodyczą. W posmaku kwaśna kawa, popiół. Wysycenie średnie, alkohol nieźle ukryty, mało ciała. Taki średni Ris
