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.

Bottle from Beer Pantry at Grand Central Station.. Pour is a dark dark brown almost black with a nice tan head that dissipates to nothing. Smell is coffee and roasted malts with some chocolate. Taste is heavy coffee.. very crisp with a roasted chocolate malt finish. ABV is apparent. Mouthfeel is creamy and rich. Overall a nice coffee stout.

Bottle from Vinmonopolet’s BU. Pours dark brown. Lots of coffee flavour. Chocolate, caramel fudge, chocolate milk, some alcohol, red fruit. Very bitter, but hidden in some sweetness. Some warmth. Thick body. Soft carbonation. Good.

Piękna prezentacja - nieprzejrzyście czarne z delikatną kremowo - brązową koronką, aromat - wiedziałem, że będzie kawa, ale tu jest ta z lepszych, fajnie palona, mleczna czekolada, likier wiśniowy, jest pięknie, smak - gęsta, palona kawa, z tych co lubie, bardzo, bardzo wyrazista, czekolada gorzka, piwo wytrawne, zdecydowanie #teamgoryczka, alkohol niewyczuwalny, ciało średnie. Jest świetnie, a co robi wersja bba to musi być kosmos. Podstawę stawiam podobnie jak Beer Geek Brunch Weasel, miłośnik kawy może postawić ciut wyżej.

Banksiz (130) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 22, 2017
English language bottle, labelled imperial stout brewed with coffee. Definite coffee aroma, some vanilla notes and a bit of fruitiness. Roasty flavors with some sweetness. Bitter-roasty finish. Too much coffee for me, but then I tend not to like flavored beers.

Strong notes of coffee, roasted notes, cocoa, black with a good brown head, medium body, carbonation is soft, taste is similar but very well balanced and very intense, pleasant warming final...perfect, a very mortal sin.

Swaroga (2213) - Warszawa, POLAND - APR 18, 2017
The beer is hiding the alcohol so well it makes me think no more then 7%. Very smooth and mild. Very easy to drink. To easy. Coffee notes are also mild but delicious. Greatly balanced.

This strong stout is a bit too strong for me. The alcohol makes it too overpowering.
