Notes/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.

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

On tap at Dieu du Ciel Tuesday, August 5th, 2008. At 9.5% alcohol it's served in a tulip glass.

I arrived in Montreal at 11:30pm Tuesday night and after checking in to my hotel headed right over to DDC, hoping with all hope that this was on tap. Sure enough, beer number 15 out of 15 was Peche Mortel. This was the first time in many trips to DDC that they had the Peche running, and I wasn't about to squander my chance to thoroughly enjoy this beer.

Poured pitch black with the thickest, heaviest head I've ever had the privelidge of seeing atop a beer. The head stayed perfectly intact for what seemed an eternity, even as I swirled the beer around and took a few sips. Rich coffee aroma with some deep malt and tastes much the same. Mouthfeel was very smooth with some alcohol at the end. Very easy to drink, which was pretty dangerous due the high alcohol content and me coming off a five hour drive. A few hours of drinking these at the bar hit me pretty hard come last call, but it was all well worth it.
