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.

Aromat bardzo intensywny, zdominowany kawą, zieloną, ziarnistą. W smaku pełne, również wyraźnie kawowe, nieco ziarniste, nuta gorzkiej czekolady w tle. Na dłuższa metę męczące.

Pours pitch black, small tan head. In nose coffee and coffee only. Roasty, some burned bread, bit of alcohol. Very bitter, medium body, lively.

austinpowers (2831) - San Francisco, California, USA - AUG 20, 2017
Just fabulous. Bottle from Jug Shop, San Francisco. Alcohol quite well hidden by the malt body. Would gladly drink again, but Equinoxe de Printemps is better, and sweeter. VERY strong coffee presence!

Patrik (822) - Amarillo City, - AUG 10, 2017
Fat bryggarnas ölbar. Rostad och rökig doft. Smakar torrt och rökigt rostad fint kaffe. Extremt fyllig och torr eftersmak. Lååångt efteråt känns kaffe och viss beska i munnen.

colui72 (1058) - HONG KONG - JUL 28, 2017
Pours black and creamy, with a creamy, persistent brown head and excellent lacing. Aroma of strong roasted malts and coffee, lot of coffee. Tastes bitter of coffee and hops, with a strong roasty character and lot of coffee beans. Powerful and tasty, straight forward: coffee stout! Creamy, thick, full bodied, low carbonation, lingering flavours, fantastic ale, as often happens with this brewery!

Beautiful smell of vanilla, choco and cocoa. Otherwise good but lacks texture (porter density). It is Very bitter, especially for dark beer.
