COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

2005 bomber from Adrian. Thanks. I have wanted to try this forever sinec I can remember when it used to be draft only. Pours out a dark black color with a tan head on it. Smell is coffee. More coffee. And then, just a tad more coffee. Some chocolate seems to make its way through as well. Taste is like drinking a rich cup of coffee with 9.5% alcohol in it. This thing had me on the ceiling after I drank the whole bomber of it. I would recommend sharing this with someone, as I didnt go to bed until 4am after drinking this. A fantastic beer though, perhaps not worthy of its 18 dollar price tag, but its still a damn nice beer that I wouldnt mind having a few more bottles of.

Really dark brown color with mocha head. Aroma has nice chocolate, caramel malt, fudge and sweet coffee. Taste follows with sweet malt, chocolate, cacao and coffee bitterness on the finish. Medium body with soft carbonation. A really nice coffee stout with good drinkability.

W aromacie dużo takiej sobie kawy, trochę popiołu, trochę czekolady, orzech włoski. Smak mocno kawowy, bardzo kwaśny, palony, trochę nut zwykłego stouta czy fesa, skórka orzecha. Mógłby to być spoko sesyjny ris gdyby nie ten męczący popiół i kwaśność

Cybuch (658) - Muszyna, POLAND - FEB 16, 2018
W aromacie kawa, nuty palone, gorzka czekolada, kakao i delikatna nuta wiśniowa. Bardzo przyjemny i intensywny. Barwa czarna, piana beżowa, ładna, utrzymująca się. W smaku mocno palone, kawowe, wytrawne z lekkimi przebłyskami słodyczy. Brakuje trochę gęstości, ale nie jest wodniste. Alkohol lekko wyczuwalny na finiszu. Wysycenie niskie. Bardzo dobry stout, po wytrawnej, palonej stronie mocy.

Bitek (903) - Warszawa, POLAND - FEB 11, 2018
Kawa, troszkę ciemnych owoców, popiół, alkohol. Treściwość w okolicach średniej, dość wytrawne. Gładkie, nisko wysycone. Wysoka, agresywna goryczka. W porządku, chociaz trochę jednowymiarowe i zaskakująco gorzkie.

Dark brown almost no head. Huge coffee grounds aroma. Not much else comes through. Big bitter coffee taste, again not getting much else. Probably the fact that I had 2 great barrel aged imperial stouts before this one doesn't help how one sided I'm finding this. Long bitter dark coffee taste, what else? Must be the order in which I drank stouts tonight, because while this one IS unbalanced with its ftw coffee flavor, its not bad. Thanks for sharing Lore!

Dark brown colour, minimal beige head; aroma and taste of heavy roasted coffee, some dark chocolate and maybe dried cherry; good one

tomekboniek (982) - Warsaw, POLAND - FEB 10, 2018
Butelka. Barwa smoliście czarna. Piana beżowa, niska, szybko znika. Kawa, dużo nut palonych. W trakcie ogrzewania coraz więcej. Czekoladowe praliny, orzechy włoskie. Konsystencja oleista, lepka. Ekstremalnie pijalne, świetnie ukryty alkohol. Nuta orzechów fajnie dominuje. świetne piwo i super cenie.

En bouteille. Magnifique liquide noir à quelques reflets rubis et mousse brune à fines bulles. Nez puissant de malts torréfiés sur le café, bien sûr, un peu de chocolat puis les fruits secs. Bouche directement amère aux saveurs fortes de café ... fort, imposantes et soutenues par un alcool bien présent. Du chocolat, un peu de sucre, une finale sèche et une longue amertume. Dieu du ciel, quel bon (Imperial) stout !
