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.

12oz bottle poured into stout snifter. This beer is black with highlights of cola at the edges. A gentle pour yielded a thin head that receded to a ring. Dots of lace are left behind as the beer is consumed. Aroma is of roasted malt, coffee, and chocolate. Taste is bitter espresso, dark cherries, some vanilla, unsweetened chocolate, and a smoky/roasty malts. On the low end of full body, creamy and thick texture, soft carbonation, and a long bitter finish.

Dark brown, no head despite aggressive pour.

Edgy, hot ground coffee.

Taste of whole coffee beans, not the smooth and mild sort. Little sugar, bubble gummy from the start but that doesn't hold. Charcoal, marshmallow and roasted malt make for a bit of astringency. Lingering coffee aftertaste.

Hardly carbonated.
