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. Clear dark black color with a large, frothy - creamy - rocky, excellent lacing, fully lasting, light brown head. Aroma is moderate to heavy malty, roasted, nutty, dark storn coffee, coffee bean dusty, dust, light alcohol. Flavor is heavy sweet and bitter with a average to long duration and a dry dust finish. Body is medium to full, texture is creamy - oily, carbonation is soft, finish feel is moderate alcoholic. Very nice ;o)) (120308)

[Tap at the brewpub] A pitch black beer with a small brown head. The aroma contains strong notes of primarily coffee and vanilla - reminds me of a good ice coffee. The flavor has strong notes of roasted malt, coffee, and again vanilla. Wow.

Bottled, thanks to René for sharing. Dark brown coloured with a beige had. Sweet aroma of coffee with roasted notes. Roasted flavour of coffee with notes of chocolate. Good, but too much coffee.

4th May 2008. Rich dark stout. This is better when not too cold. Silky smooth with a subtle sweet note and subtle vanilla and even subtler red fruit. This is followed by a very dominant coffee note which leads to a dry bitter finish.

omhper (26366) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JAN 9, 2002
A big coffee flavoured imperial stout. Black soloured. Coffee fragrant. Big soft maltyness, very salty, burnt flavours. A tasty, dangerous potion reminding of Irish coffee.
