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.

Piwo czarne z lekko bezowa piana w postaci cienkiej obraczki na szkle. Mocna dawka palonosci i kawy. Jest wytrawne z intensywna goryczka i wysyceniem na dosc niskim poziomie. Troche lukrecji i lekki alkohol ogrzewa gardlo. Brakuje jednak zdecydowanie ciala i intensywnosci.

On tap at rattle n hum east. Pours deep black with a dark tan head that settles to a thin layer and sticks around. Nose is mainly chocolate and vanilla. Taste is black coffee, vanilla, bourbon sweetness. Finish is coffee, vanilla, and a lingering boozy burn. Medium to heavy body. Really smooth mouth feel, fine and light carbonation. This is legitimate beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Dieu du Ciel, Montreal on 8th July 2017. Absolutely pitch black with thick tan foam and full lacing. Fresh coffee aroma. Rich and intense ’shot’ of coffee in-mouth, with a solid roasty, chocolate taste. A hint of plum and touch of smoke. A rich, lengthy finish of bitter chocolate, coffee and liquorice. Full bodied with a very smooth mouthfeel. Absolutely exquisite.

0,341 ml bottle from a beer store in the neighbourhood of the brewery. Pours out really oily and BLACK with a big beige head. Smell is strong coffee and dark choco.Taste starts the same, some dark berriefruity in the background. Very smooth, totally hidden alcohol. Some sweetness and vanilla in the second row. Great stuff!

Bottle. Black with a beige head. Aroma is coffee, roasted and some black malts. Taste is bitter coffee, chocolate and ash. Nice aftertaste.

tightslice (1309) - Redwood City, California, USA - JUL 2, 2017
Bottle from K&L in Redwood City, CA (Dated 04-27-2016). Aroma is coffee, coffee liquor, burnt toffee, dark chocolate covered licorice. Taste is tangy coffee upfront with a licorice belt line, then some cherry vanilla business in the middle, followed by bitter coffee on the finish. Excellent chewy licorice but ultimately surprised at the amount of coffee flavor considering this is over a year old.

6/26/17 (Chicago): 11.5 oz bottle poured into snifter. Pitch black pour with one finger tan head and mild lacing. Strong bitter coffee aroma. Excellent bitter coffee, dry roasted malt balanced by sweet chocolate taste. Thin texture, no carbonation, easy smooth drinking. Nice after dinner drink, has a good kick. Love this beer!
