La Péché Termopilas est un stout impérial, brassé avec le café du même nom ! Une torréfaction plus légère atténue les saveurs torréfiées, pour laisser place aux notes de noix très présentes dans ce café. L’acidité est également légèrement plus marquée que dans la Péché Mortel classique. Cette bière est née à notre brasserie de Saint-Jérôme en décembre 2016.

La Péché Termopilas is an imperial stout, brewed with the coffee of the same name! Lighter roasting reduces roasted flavors, leaving room for nutty notes in this coffee. The acidity is also slightly more marked than in the classic Peche Mortel. This beer was born at our brewery in Saint-Jérôme in December 2016.

20-APR-2017, draft @Muted Horn, with Ulkløbben. Black with a high, creamy, tan, lacing, head. Roast. Milky roast. Coffee, Never burnt. Just as smooth as the regular. Perhaps a touch of tartness. Really nice beer.

sebletitje (9912) - Enghien, BELGIUM - APR 22, 2017
Draft @ ML Fontainas. Brune foncée presque noire, col crémeux blanc-cassé. Arôme au nez finement grillé, bon café, petite note rétro de moka voire de chocolat. Le café est généreux tout en demeurant efficace et non-surfait. Palais de café avec un malté bien dominant et épais. Le tout oscille entre le torréfié et biscuité avec un ajout léger de chocolat noir et une fine amertume houblonnée, ou alors émanant du café. Alcool perce bien sur la fin, sans paraitre surfaite, on reste sur une bonne base de Pêché avec un fini un peu poudreux, impression de ’cold brewed’ café.

solidfunk (8588) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - APR 7, 2017
Way too much coffee in this one like a late night detective shift. The roast and caramel is lost here. Pours black with decent head and lacing. Bittersweet finish. Tap at Peche day at Churchkey.

_angst_ (4778) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 6, 2017
Keg @ BBB. Pitch black pour with a small creamy mocha head. Roasty chocolaty coffee nose with unroasted coffee cherries, light black currant & plenty of roasted malts. Sweet, bitter & roasty taste. Soft, round, slightly roasty astringent & velvety mouthfeel. Soft chocolaty fruity coffee. Very nice!

The_Osprey (7731) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 22, 2017
March 2017 - Keg at Moeder Lambic Fontainas as ’Dieu du Ciel Péché Termopilas’. Very dark brown, opaque, foamy light brown head leaves spiderweb lacing. Aroma is really nice – rich chocolate truffles, fresh roast coffee and dark liqueur. Great. Body is smooth, a touch light and a little too carbonated for the style. Taste is a touch thin but has some of the same coffee liqueur, also red berry tang and toffee with a spicy finish. Decent impy overall. (3.7)

teorn88 (7632) - Rimini, ITALY - MAR 21, 2017
Keg at FOB for Journee Peche. It pours a dark brown color with a medium beige head. Aroma is strongly on the roasted coffee beans side, dry and woody, with some vanilla and dark chocolate notes to round it out. In the mouth it retains the dry roasted coffee beans note, complemented by the berry tang with is typical of best roasted coffees and a lightly sweet vanilla and dark choc note. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, the best coffee variant

reebtogi (6149) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 20, 2017
Served in a 12oz tulip glass at Beer Revolution in Edmonton pouring almost black in colour with a finger of beige head leaving no lacing on the glass. Aroma is roasted grains, chocolate and coffee. Taste is a chocolate malty sweetness with a roasted grain and coffee bitterness. Medium bodied with mild carbonation. Overall, a nicely balanced and tasty brew for the style with the coffee nicely in the background. Recommended.

Finish is smooth roasted bitterness with ground coffee, a fruity notes, slight nutty, some cocoa, sweet caramel and toffee.
Another nice version.
