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.

Black as pitch with a tight, crema colored foam. Roasted coffee, chocolate, alcohol and dried dark fruits make up the aroma while coffee, roasted malts, chocolate, and a slight taste of alcohol. The mouthfeel is full but not cloying and the finish is appetizingly dry. The saving grace of this beer is the coffee addition because otherwise, it would be a mediocre imperial stout.

Dark black color, opaque with 2 finger tan head. heavy lacing that. Aroma of dark chocolate and espresso very prominent up front. Moderately bitter. Dry. Roast. Full bodied. Long bitter finish. A little alcohol heat, but deceiving with the ABV

Draft at the brewpub, thick black with gorgeous dense tan head. Coffee nose, dark fruit and coffee taste, topped off by delicious bitter chocolate finish. The balance of all the flavors is superb!

SHANER4 (507) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 14, 2010
Bottle 11.5 oz. - poured black with medium tan head. Aroma - coffee, black currant and chocolate. Flavor - very smooth coffee and chocolate taste followed by nice bitter citrus finish Palate - medium bodied with silky smooth texture. Finish is somewhat boozey and has little aftertaste! Overall - Great coffee stout, silky smooth and wish I had purchased another!

bastarda (506) - 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.

VikingHammer (506) - Lynnfield, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 31, 2007
Pours black with a one finger brown head. Lots of coffee in the nose along with some hints of caramel. If you like coffee then you need to try this beer. Big coffee flavor all the way through with subtle caramel and chocolate. Medium to full bodied. Awesome Stout.

Rogueone (506) - I F&ckin’ hate those guys from, Ohio, USA - APR 28, 2008
I am so happy someone shared this with me @ DLD. Calling this a ’beer’ seems sort of weak due to its depth. This tasted like a dark, rich french press coffee -- smooth and dry -- with an impressive well-rounded finish of roasted coffee and malts. Haven’t had Geek Breakfast, but this is my favorite coffee-inspired stout thus far.

Kestral (506) - Årnes, NORWAY - MAR 4, 2009
Bottle at Nørrebro Bryghus. Pours pitch black, with a finger of dark brown head. Aroma is huge, with loads and loads of coffee, chocolate, vanilla. The same notes return in the flavour, with a pleasant, warming alcohol sting, brown sugars, and it alternates being bitter and sweet several times in one sip. A lot of flavour. Lovely mouthfeel, full bodied and smooth. Wish I could have this more often.
