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.

Simply amazing. The coffee aroma is superbly balanced by the roasted chocolate malt flavour . The Appearance is as a great Imperial stout should be, deep and viscous. I love the smoothness of this beer evidenced by the silky mouthfeel.

Banksiz (129) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 22, 2017
English language bottle, labelled imperial stout brewed with coffee. Definite coffee aroma, some vanilla notes and a bit of fruitiness. Roasty flavors with some sweetness. Bitter-roasty finish. Too much coffee for me, but then I tend not to like flavored beers.

Strong notes of coffee, roasted notes, cocoa, black with a good brown head, medium body, carbonation is soft, taste is similar but very well balanced and very intense, pleasant warming final...perfect, a very mortal sin.

Swaroga (2213) - Warszawa, POLAND - APR 18, 2017
The beer is hiding the alcohol so well it makes me think no more then 7%. Very smooth and mild. Very easy to drink. To easy. Coffee notes are also mild but delicious. Greatly balanced.

This strong stout is a bit too strong for me. The alcohol makes it too overpowering.

From a sixpack purchased in QC by my mom. Screw caps, yeah! Pours midnight black without much brownish head. Coffee aroma. Mouthfell is actually pretty light. Taste is coffee and more coffee. But it’s real coffee and it’s not burnt, so it’s yummy. First few of these were OK, but the last one with a year or so of age was very tasty. Good stuff.
