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.

Bit thin otherwise its amazing. Just the right amount of bitterness. Medium full body. Wish maybe some creamy finish. This is nuts. Walk on water has a contender.

Pours a dark chocolate with a decent sized mocha head. Aroma is delicious coffee and toffee. Flaovoris sweet coffee grounds and heavy cream...slight chocolatey malts and hoppy bitterness. Mouthfeel is heavy and delicate.... this is a great brew.

Pours black with red tint. Aroma is smoky of roasted coffee, brown sugar, toffee, dried cherry. Fine, medium carbonation. Creamy texture. Sweet coffee in front. Filled with dark chocolate, a little vanilla, molasses. Warms up to release a really complex balance. Smooth all the way through. Finish is a bitter espresso. Alcohol is well hidden. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Butters Big Blowout - Pours a dark brown with tan head. Aroma of roasted malt and coffee, hint of chocolate. Taste the same, definitely felt like a nice shot of expresso. Nice bitter finish. Excellent Imperial Stout

Most of what I like in an Impy stout. Big, bold dark with aromas of roasty coffee. The only thing I would prefer is a little more body and sweetness. Excellent beer

This beer offers a hearty aroma of sweet coffee and almonds. It is a black solution that produces a decent mocha colored head and heavy lacing. This thick beer introduces itself with a healthy coffee taste that has infusions of nuts and malts. The taste fades leaving a mildly sweet smoky chocolate taste lingering.

Wow! I loved this - maybe a little too much - truly a peche mortel. Anyways, pours jet black with a tight foamy brown head. Nice coffee and tobacco aroma. Hits the palate firmly without overwhelming. All of the flavors meld together, chocolate, coffee, tobacco, a little citrus. Nothing predominates, it all subtly combine into something that seems big yet drinkable. A little lighter on the palate than I expected with maybe a little too much fizz. Otherwise - excellent brew!

cgreb (420) - Marburg, GERMANY - SEP 4, 2008
bottle (thank’s Alex!!!) - black (really black) beer with a brownish head. Very clear coffee aroma. The strong alcohol (9.5%) is hiding behind the intense coffee flavour. Never had something comparable. Highly viscous beer.

Dpaquet (420) - Trois-rivieres, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 1, 2013
Pours a pitch black with beige head and some lacing. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, very moka. Taste has some coffee, chocolate, roasted malts, hops, some sweetness, semi dry finish. Full body and low carb. Very good. My go-to imp. stout.

Big coffee! The nose was a perfect blend of coffee and roast w/ very slight soury dark fermented fruit, and alcohol esters. The mouth was also perfect w/ coffee, roast, and slight dark fermented fruit sweetness. The beer poured an opaque color w/ rich brown thin head and lacing. The palate was full bodied, creamy and very well-rounded. I really enjoyed this beer. A very big up to DYCsoccer17 for sharing this one.
