Peche Mortel is an Imperial Stout brewed with coffee, and as some have already suggested, this beer should be enjoyed soon after brewing to preserve the coffee flavors. My bottle is around two months old, and that's only the time it's been in my possession; I haven't a clue when it was brewed. Having said that, the nose on this stout is superb: like extra-strong black coffee with a healthy dose of Irish cream liqueur, suspended over a thick brown sugar and heavy caramel malt base.

On the tongue, the beer is immediately abrasive--and I mean that in the best way possible--with black coffee, chocolate malt, and what may be black malt. This brew is neither meek nor weak, and what few spaces aren't filled with coffee and malt are crammed with tobacco ash and peat. So strong are the burnt flavors that the brown sugar from the nose is barely locatable, and though I know it has to be strong to even make its presence known, it mostly waves feebly in the background in comparison. Mouthfeel is medium--slightly thicker than 2% milk--and carbonation is medium-light.

Overall, this is one of the more solid Imperial Stouts I've had, and is the kind of beer I feel I should be eating with a spoon. Fantastic, and definitely not for the faint of heart.
