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.

Pours jet black with an inch of light brown head into the snifter. The aroma and taste was dominated by thick, chewy coffee beans. Some chocolate made its way in during the finish. An excellent desert beer.

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!

Sigmund (7394) - Tau, NORWAY - JUN 8, 2017
341 ml bottle, from Vinmonopolet, Nettbutikken. ABV is 9.5%. Black colour, moderate tan head. Aroma of coffee, roast malts and dark chocolate. Rich flavour, but not too sweet, notes of roast malts and strong coffee, also plenty of bittering hops. Hints of dark bitter chocolate and unsweetened liquorice. Good beer, but not as outstanding as expected.

Vom Fass mit Nitrozapfanlage im Muted Horn Berlin 2017-04 getrunken. Ein einfach ein wunderbarens Imperial Stout. Durch die Nitrozapfanlage bleibt der sehr feinporige Schaum bis zum Ende. Hmmm lecker!

The best coffee stout I’ve had the pleasure of drinking. Strong aroma of roasted coffee & cocoa. Intense coffee taste, quite full on but was exactly what i was hoping for.

BlazerT (1089) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - JUN 3, 2017
Niezwykle kremowe, aksamitne, gładkie. Aromat to przede wszystkim kawa i słody palone. Goryczka na umiarkowanym poziomie, mocno palone, jedynie lekko kwaskowate. Alkohol praktycznie niewyczuwalny. Solidny kawał piwa zasługujący na swoja ocenę.

nutjes (875) - Heestert-Zwevegem, BELGIUM - MAY 26, 2017
34,1cl-fles van bij Bierhalle Deconinck te Vichte. U: Zwart met een bruine schuimkraag. G: Koffie, cacao en geroosterd. S: Zoete aanzet gevolgd door een stevige carbonatie. M: Volmondig, sticky en lichte carbonatie.

ABS (1051) - Stokke, NORWAY - MAY 25, 2017
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.
