Outstanding beer. I don't drink many imperial stouts because the alcohol tends to be too overpowering for my tastes, but Péché Mortel is very well balanced.
A - Thick dark body with a nice brown head. Just what a stout should look like.
S - A good smell for an imperial stout, but I get more alcohol than coffee.
T - Perfect taste. The coffee comes through and the alcohol is very well hidden for 9.8%.
M - Perfect for an imperial stout.
D - I finished my one bottle surprisingly easy. It would be too strong to drink too much in a night, but this was definitely the easiest drinking Imperial Stout that I have ever had.

11.5oz bottle poured into a snifter. 6 and 1 notched on the label of this twist off bottle.
A: Pours a very dark brown appearing pitch black in the glass. A mild khaki tan head sits on top, dissipating in a couple minutes.
S: Initially there is a nice dose of coffee that blends very well with a roasted malt quality. Dark fruit qualities come out more as it warms along with a touch of smokiness.
T: A beer with flavor that builds on you. At first I get a slightly bitter coffee, then a blend of dark fruit comes through. The aftertaste lingers with a great roastiness for a solid 2 minutes after each sip.
M: Very smooth beer. Creamy mouthfeel that slides like velvet over your tongue. Doesn't even seem like an alcoholic beverage. Remarkable.
Overall I am stunned with the complexity yet harmony of this beer. Coffee is just enough to add without overwhelming, hops compliment the coffee and the roastiness just works period.
