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.

On tap at the Armsby Abbey. Very dark with a perfect light tan head. Very nice flavor, full mouthfeel, very smooth. Excellent imperial stout, one of the best I’ve had.

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.

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.

ALIBALI (2201) - Kiel, GERMANY - JUL 21, 2017
Charmant brutal!!! Bean & Röst Pepper Animal ??!!! Aber auch nicht outstanding. Fassware im MUTED HORN Berlin.

bonev (790) - POLAND - JUL 20, 2017
Piwo czarne z lekko bezowa piana w postaci cienkiej obraczki na szkle. Mocna dawka palonosci i kawy. Jest wytrawne z intensywna goryczka i wysyceniem na dosc niskim poziomie. Troche lukrecji i lekki alkohol ogrzewa gardlo. Brakuje jednak zdecydowanie ciala i intensywnosci.

garroch (63) - New York, USA - JUL 18, 2017
On tap at rattle n hum east. Pours deep black with a dark tan head that settles to a thin layer and sticks around. Nose is mainly chocolate and vanilla. Taste is black coffee, vanilla, bourbon sweetness. Finish is coffee, vanilla, and a lingering boozy burn. Medium to heavy body. Really smooth mouth feel, fine and light carbonation. This is legitimate beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Dieu du Ciel, Montreal on 8th July 2017. Absolutely pitch black with thick tan foam and full lacing. Fresh coffee aroma. Rich and intense ’shot’ of coffee in-mouth, with a solid roasty, chocolate taste. A hint of plum and touch of smoke. A rich, lengthy finish of bitter chocolate, coffee and liquorice. Full bodied with a very smooth mouthfeel. Absolutely exquisite.

WillemsUrenkel (1901) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - JUL 6, 2017
0,341 ml bottle from a beer store in the neighbourhood of the brewery. Pours out really oily and BLACK with a big beige head. Smell is strong coffee and dark choco.Taste starts the same, some dark berriefruity in the background. Very smooth, totally hidden alcohol. Some sweetness and vanilla in the second row. Great stuff!
