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 a red wine glass in the Marriott in Napa. Basically ran out of room in my shipper full of beer to take home, so I decided to drink this one in the hotel room the night before. Opened 9/30/2013.

Pours a thick, viscous black body with a nice 1cm mocha brown head that looks incredibly creamy and fluffy.. like a latte. Good head retention for a stout, no lacing.

Smelled like straight up milk chocolate and roast coffee. Not a very complex nose, but it is damn delicious and definitely brings its game.

Flavour is very full of lactose and black coffee bitterness.. some milk chocolate sweetness rounds it out along with that sweet lactose flavour. Overall this is a coffee bomb. Very bold flavour, not complex but definitely keeps you interested and enjoying it.

Good thick body, good carbonation, smooth, super creamy with a dry, bitter coffee finish. No hints of alcohol heat.

Delicious coffee stout. The coffee may be a bit too strong for some, but as a man who loves his coffee black like the devil's soul, this is a fantastic beer. Its price point ($5.99 for a 12oz bottle) makes it a once-in-a-while treat, but it is certainly a delicious treat.
