Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Popsinc on 06-09-2003

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.

The Péché Mortel was born in our Montreal brewpub in October 2001.

Poured from a bottle into pint glass.

Appearance: Very dark with nice thick brown head.

Smell: Pleasant, and can smell some hops, but the aroma is dominated by coffee and the roasted malts.

Taste: Excellent taste. There is a strong coffee influence with some sweetness from the malts and balanced with a little hops. As expected from an Imperial Stout, it has a high alcohol content. It is a great balance that is not too bitter, nor too sweet. The balance between the flavors is great.

This beer is very smooth with a nice aftertaste that is not too bitter.

This is one of the best imperial stouts I've tasted. You will enjoy it if you like a bold stout with coffee flavors. It is complex, and every time I drink it, I get something new. Definitely a beer to drink again. The more I drink it, the more I like it. One of my favorites.

Nice dark colour; it's well balanced with a tinge of alcohol with a nice coffee feel. It's really understated but well balanced.

Rich cocoa nibs, boozy aroma. Velvety smooth mouthfeel with a bittersweet finish. Not bad.
