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.

På fat på brygg, oslo. Ugjennomsiktig svart med kremaktig karamellhode. Lukter av julekake, kaffe, mørksjokolade, brent toffee. Smaker av marsipan, mer sjokolade, litt røyk.

Jet black pour with a single finger espresso head. Aroma is a bit boozy along with some choclate. Medium bodied. Taste is bitter, finishes pretty strongly with ash and a little raisin. Lots of lace. Lingering bitterness. A hint of chocolate here and there. Loads of flavor.

Black body with average-sized, long-lasting, brown head that laces the glass well. Strong aroma that is very dominated by coffee. Also dark roasted malt, and dark caramel, and chocolate in the back. Strong flavour that follows the aroma. Moderate sweet taste with a heavy bitter finish. Full body, creamy texture, very soft carbonation. A very nice imperial stout, but a bit too dominated by the coffee.

Bue en bouteille de 341mL, disponible en 4-pack de manière assez commune. Apparence : Liquide sirupeux, d'un brun tres foncé, enjolivé d'un fin col brun latté, aux bulles éphémères. Arômes : Le café en prédominance, évidemment, le malt torréfié, qui vient lui prêter main forte pour un punch d'odeurs assez intenses, emmitouflées d'un sucre résiduel digne d'une imperial stout ayant ce volume d'alcool. Palais : très rond, faible effervescence, amertume du café, la chaleur de l'alcool, tout ça formant une symbiose décadente. Goûts : Le côté rôti, quoique bien présent, se maintient à un niveau acceptable qui le rend enviable, surtout par le fait qu'il soit soutenu d'un sucre si réconfortant, qui se mêle à la chaleur de l'alcool, qui ne demande qu'à être prise de manière lente et constante, pour profiter de ce breuvage pour un long moment durant une froide soirée.
