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.

bastarda (488) - Freiburg, GERMANY - DEC 25, 2016
kindly given by Daniel, thanks a lot. Aromas of pocket coffee-sweets, hints of canned Cappuccino, coffee-flavoured chocolate and almost no alcohol fumes. Also almost no alcohol burn present in taste, lots of heavily roasted espresso, coffee bitter finish, quite a thin mouthfeel, this is not a creamy ImpStout. Very straightforward, almost simple composition of a beer.

TheJestersBeer (2429) - SWEDEN - NOV 15, 2016
341ml bottle. Pours pitch black with a brown head. Roasted, complex aroma, coffee beans, dark chocolate, licorice, ash, hops. Off-dry, full bodied, high bitterness, slightly low CO2. Roasted taste, malt, chocolate, coffee, licorice, ash, caramel, faint smoke. Quite aggressive bitterness in the finish, verging on harsh. (2016-11-15)

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

If you like your stouts insanely on coffee, this is the shit you gotta drink! Quite bitter! Great beer for aging.
