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.

4.35/5  rDev -0.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Poured into a goblet a very black pour with thick tan head. No light is going to be piercing through this. Good amount of lacing left along the side of the glass.

S: Very strong smell of coffee, oatmeal, molasses, hints of chocolate. You don't have to get your nose very close to catch the smell of this beer, it emanates out of the glass very easily.

T: The coffee taste is strong in the beginning and dissipates into the maltier stout side afterwards. The taste is very full and complex. An aftertaste of chocolate, malts, and an almost brown sugar linger. This is a very smooth taste considering the look and smell of this beer, not too overpowering.

F: Full bodied beer to be sure. Some alcohol feel, but nothing that would deter from the experience.

D: A great beer to have on a cool or cold night. Wouldn't want this anywhere else. Very rich and complex, one of these is enough for me in a night. But a wonderful beer and great representation of a stout both in look and taste. (990 characters)

Dark and black with a thick tan head. Bubbles are small and dense giving it a creamy texture.

Coffee, cola, prune, dark chocolate, grain of paradise, and some carbon aromas. Slight molasses smell in there too.

Starts with some sweet chocolate flavors, almost like a chocolate chip cookie. The coffee then hits you in the mouth. Beautiful and complex coffee flavors too, not just roasted/acrid flavors. Fruity plum like flavor towards the end. The finish is roasty and bitter. Beautiful flavor profile.

Mouthfeel hits a nice balance with me. This is definitely one of the finer examples of an Imperial Stout. Balance is what makes this beer great. Highly recommended. (672 characters)

Single, 11.5 oz bottle just purchased from New Beer Distributors in Manhattan on Chrystie Street for $5.35...
"Imperial Coffe Stout Brewed With Real, Fair-Trade Coffee" on the artistic front logo sticker...
Beautiful appearance... pours a midnight, jet-black, ebony hue with a gigantic foamy, and reddish-tan head that lingered on for a while before slowly receding and leaving behind a copious amount of lacing around the edge of ther serving glass...
Intense aroma replete with fresh, roasted coffee beans, dark-chocolate, super-sweet malts, and a hint of alcohol...
Taste was immense, thick, rich, and strong, literally bursting with rich, creamy, dark-chocolate... Certainly up there with some of the best Imperial Stouts I've tried, including Great Divide's Yeti... Taste was super-sweet, loaded with dark molasses, honey, candied sugars, rich, roasted malts, tons of coffee beans, latte, rich mocha, and dark espresso...
Creamy, super-thick and rich mouthfeel, and the alcohol was also very well-hidden...
Drinkability wasn't bad for a beer this intense, full-bodied and strong...
Excellent stuff...

Appearance - Very black with a thick tan head. Lots of sticky lacing lingers.

Smell - Dark chocolate, strong black coffee, and a hint of black liquorish.

Taste - As it smells but with a balance of sweet and bitter. I picked up some vanilla, burnt marshmallow, and mild citrusy hops as well.

Mouth feel - Creamy and smooth. Tons of coffee lingers. Good amount of carbonation.

Drinkability - Is Fantastic! A real gem! Glad I had the chance to try it. ABV hidden dangerously well. Definitely worth checking out if you can find it. (531 characters)

12oz bottle received from Viggo at Dark Lord Day. Thanks a bunch! Bottled in November 2007. Poured into my Duvel tulip

A: Pitch black with a dense dark brown head. Dark ruby highlights. Excellent retention. Surprisingly, this one leaves some lacework too!

S: Coffee, heavily roasted espresso up front with cream, bitter chocolate, and a little bit of dark fruit sweetness - figs, raisins and grapes. Definitely a coffee assault but very well balanced

T: A quandary of a coffee assault with the force of a juggernaut and the delicacy of a ballet dancer. Neither as strong nor as heavily roasted as the nose might suggest. Starts off with a strong coffee note and then takes on a complex malt profile with roast, creamy sweetness and almost some nuts. Delicious, probably my favorite coffee stout.

M: A tad overcarbonated but the long, bitter finish is excellent.

D: It's 90 degrees and i'm enjoying this more that i should. Lives up to the hype

**Edit 13 June 2012**
I'm drinking my last bottle of this beer. I received this from Viggo, making this 4.5 years old.

The coffee is still surprisingly potent, making me wonder what this was like fresh (I haven't had it in a while). A touch ashy/tarry, but in a way that I welcome and thoroughly enjoy. The palate has some creamy dark chocolate, a moderate coffee presence, if a little stale, a mild acidity, a nice roasty malt character. Bitter finish with stale coffee, a touch of char and soft carbonation. Still quite nice. 4.5/4/4/4.5/4

**Edit 28 Jan 2013**
This bottle I picked up at Healthy Spirits back in May 2008. The slow purging of the cellar continues...

Still solid, can't add much to my notes above. (1,667 characters)

Thanks a lot for this one Harry! Dark, black liquid poured from the 12 oz bottle, and left a frothy, creamy, mocha head that lasted. In the nose, I got freshly brewed black coffee, rich dark chocolate, some vanilla, with a touch of wood smoke and hops. The flavour profile was quite enjoyable to me, as I love coffee. Fresh dark roast with loads of bittering hops, vanilla, dry, bitter dark chocolate, some smoke. Bitter with long lived coffee aftertaste. Creamy, and very drinkable considering the ABV. Quite a treat. Thank you Harry! :) (538 characters)

Sampled through Monsone and Brews N Tunes 3 BIF.

Black light proof beer with a tall glass filling brown head.

Strong chocolate aroma and just as strong coffee. Extremely strong coffee aroma as strong or stronger as Founders Breakfast Stout. Kahlúa and coconut round out the aroma.

The taste starts out sweet and bitter like coffee liqueur one of the less sweet ones. Long lasting coffee aftertaste here and it is quite nice. Vanilla flavor possibly from charred white oak. Very much a coffee beer, anything else here is just a nuance.

Mouthfeel is good.

Great sipping beer here, not to rich and not too weak. Completely a coffee beer and if you don't like coffee you won't like this. (689 characters)

Wow, so psyched to have had a chance to try this.

Poured from a 11.5 oz bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance was as of any Imperial worth its merit, pitch black with a frothy tan head with great lacing and retention. No light gets through this whatsoever.

Smell was of roasty bakers chocolate and espresso. Think Old Rasputin with a double espresso shot poured into it.

Taste was consistent with the smell, amazing blend of chocolate, coffee, and vanilla bean. Every sip, it gets better.

Mouthfeel was great, a tad on the high end carbonation wise but still drinks incredibly smooth.

I would give the drinkability a 5 but the 9.5 abv limits that for sure, as does the intensity of the flavor. This is definitely one to sip and enjoy after dinner or as a night cap, not at all something you'd want to quaff to get drunk off of.

Overall an amazing beer and i'm happy I got a chance to try it given that I found it by accident at the local shop. Seek out and enjoy! (971 characters)

this beer poured a black color with a thick brown head that slowly built and receeded, but never left. this beer has legs. beautiful.

the smell is coffee, sweet chocolate, hops are faint but detectable. also picking up licorice.

the taste is roasted coffee and chocolate that sweetens nicely as it warms.

the mouthfeel is full and velvety.

the alcohol is very well hidden in this one, but it will sneak up on you. this isn't dark lord or the abyss, but it is top notch and worthy of the top 100 for sure. (508 characters)

A: Gets a 5 from me because I love it when a huge stout has great head and head retention. noce and black with a fluffy two finger oatmeal colored head that slowy fades down to 1 finger.

S: Lots of coffee, gorounds infact,with some milky sweetness. Roasted malt with some vanilla. Slightest amount of cherry, but not as pungent overall as I expected.

T: Well it's super smooth, as an oatmeal stout should be. Great mouthfeel, though a tad bit heavier would have been perfect.Coffee and dark chocolate dominates the flavor giving way to vanilla, some oakiness comes in and overtakes the flavor, moving in to a smokey flavor. Hops push through in the end delivering some spice, and the long finish is all hop biterness and some slight alochol sting at the very end. I was surpised by the amount of hops coming through at the end, but this is pretty fresh, and probably mellows over time.

Ovr: This is an extremly good beer. I found myself comparing this to Devil Over a Barrell becuase I had it recently. This beer has mucuh more of a hop spice to me, and is a bit fuller tasting, though Devil is technically a porter. Overall fantastic. (1,138 characters)

Given to me by Stefan from the brewery. Thanks for coming by guys! Sharing 12 oz with 5 people.

This is simply a tremendous beer that lives up to its following. Appearance is deep brown with a dark head. The head retention is amazing, even after just 2 oz. sits for ten minutes. Yes, I'm savoring this one.

Aroma is sweet grounds and berries. Slight alcohol edge. Nummy.

Tastes rich and full. No bourbon type fusil or butteriness. Complex and seamless integration between the bean and grain. body is perfect. This is a beer that I would spend the night slowly drinking two of these. I was fortunate to have this on draft also, along with several other beers from this brewery and Hopfenstark (maybe the best saison I've ever had) at Spuyten Duyvil. Sorry, i had to brag a little. What a night! (797 characters)

Pours out an opaque black darkness with two fingers of tan suds. Probably just a tad too warm.
Smell was coffee and sugary toasted malts with lots of sugary caramel to mellow out the hoppiness that lays in the back there.
Taste is superb like Ten Fidy or malty like a Blackout stout. Very drinkable.
Mouthfeel is very dry as one would expect but some oils were left behind on the tounge to even things out.
Hard to come by but when and if I could have a lot of these, I would drink four or five right in a row. (510 characters)

660ml bottle from April 2005

Having just tried one of the new batch last week at Monk's Cafe, I thought it was time to crack open the old man in the cellar. Thanks to BuckeyeNation for the bottle, many moons ago.

A - A bubbly tan head quickly dissipates leaving a wisp of color on a dark brown background, much like a cup of black coffee with suagr residue on the surface. Very little lacing.

S - Smell is of a Paris cafe - espresso and tobacco.

T - Very well balanced flavors. Coffee bitterness dominates but the acidity is just right to keep the bitterness in check.

M - Very light carbonation on this bottle complements the flavors well. Texture is not creamy, but not watery either. Overall, a good platform.

D - Very high drinkability on this one, especially for coffee fans. Alcohol is not present at all. Could easily pass for a 5% beer, except for the obvious symptoms of intoxication as I near the end of the bottle. (931 characters)

Got this from my folks in celebration of getting a new job. Awesome gift - thanks Mom and Dad.

Poured a 12oz. bottle into a snifter.

Appearance - It pours an opaque black - like motor oil - no light penetrates. It produced a 1 1/2 finger tannish, frothy, creamy, latte foam head. The head slowly dissipating to a thin crown - and the crown never leaves. A quick swirl of the glass brings the head right back - this brew has great head retention. The head leaves behind a light lacing. Overall, this beer looks really good.

Smell - This brew smells delicious. One of the best smelling coffee stouts I have come across. It has a huge espresso component - huge, but not artificial like many other coffee stouts I have tried. There is a hint of creaminess in the scent - perhaps a hint of lactose, but I could be wrong. There is a strong cocoa powder presence at the end of the scent. The scent is pretty bitter overall - a near perfect mix of coffee grounds dark chocolate.

Taste - This is one of the best mixes of coffee and chocolate I have ever had in a beer. The espresso huge and unartificial. There is a delicious bitter cocoa powder and dark chocolate finish. The flavor has a creamy transition between the coffee and cocoa. But perhaps what I love most is that the ABV is completely hidden - I can't detect any alcohol in the flavor at all. An awesome feat of brewing prowess. I don't know who the brewmaster of Dieu Du Ciel is, but he should be proud of himself.

Mouthfeel - Moderate carbonation level. It is incredibly smooth and creamy as it washes over the tongue. Medium to full bodied. There is something slightly astringent in the mouthfeel, assumingly from the coffee. My only complaint is that I would have wanted some finer textured carbonation to liven up the beer a little.

Drinkability - The smoothness of the mouthfeel makes this brew extremely drinkable - it is so easy to quaff. The smell is incredibly alluring. Taste is over the top - one of the best coffee stouts I have ever had. The ABV is completely undetectable. Simply an awesome beer. (2,072 characters)

Drank this one to celebrate passing my 1st kyu test in Aikido. Served in my DFH snifter. Poured an opaque black with a half-inch, tight, tan-colored head consisting of copious tiny bubbles. Dissipated into a fairly consistent cap within minutes. Sheets of lace; some legs, but somewhat spotty. Scent of roasted coffee dominates the nose on a malt background with just the slightest suggestion of sweetness. Taste consistent with nose with the roasted flavor more pronounced without being burnt; just the slightest suggestion of hops expressed at the finish. Mouhfeel is not quite medium-bodied with quite of bit of effervescence across the tongue, revealed as a slight burn. Faintest hint of alcohol and hops bitterness lingers at the finish between quaffs. Good drinkability, but not readily available in my area. Definitely need to make the trip to Montreal to sample more offerings from Brasserie Dieu Du Ciel (912 characters)

11.5 oz bottle in pint glass

pours smooth with head that cascades down into one finger of tan foamy head that keeps well. it smells a bit more mild than i had expected, sweet and malty. strong coffee scents with hints of chocolate.

incredibly smooth and velvety, an amzing texture to it, medium body. slightly creamy with a good carbonation at the front of the mouth. the coffee flavors are very strong and do not let up on the aftertaste. sweet, roasty full flavors are there too. (483 characters)

I was quite looking forward to trying this beer, and I was pleased when I did. It poured a deep black color with almost no head. I was looking forward to the coffee aspect of it, and I didn't note very much coffee on the nose, but when I started to drink it, and especially as it warmed the roasted coffee really started to come through. Although I was sharing the bottle after dinner and some other drinks, I found it highly drinkable and will look forward to enjoying it again soon. (484 characters)

Pours a darkness with a tan head... looks very stouty!

It smells like you would expect a coffee stout to... notes of espresso and roastiness.

I get cocoa in the mouth... more roastiness, very strong when it's cold. As it warms, it subdues to a nice, even experience.

It's very smooth and very creamy. I can taste the alcohol but at close to 10%, it hides most of it.

This beer is outstanding and well worth the $5.50 I paid for the 12oz bottle. For the next bottle, I will let it sit out for 30 or so minutes before popping the cap. The taste as it warms is as good as any stout I've had. (593 characters)

Peche Mortel

Once again, big THANKS to Pimpp (Patrick) for this 1! He hooks me up with some of the best beers out there!

A- Thick black with an enormous tan head. Thick chunky lacing down the glass.
S- Pungent dark chocolate with dark roasted coffee beans.
T- Strong bitter dark chocolate up front with a big dose of strong espresso. Hints of vanilla cream are apparent throughout the body.
M- Strong and bitter aty first but morphing into a thick, sweet, and creamy dessert! Slight touch of alc in the aftertaste.

Overall- Delicious! This is a dessert on its own! (568 characters)

Awesome, thick banana nut bread head. Lacing starts nicely. Huge espresso-roast body. This looks awesome.

Vibrant coffee notes with huge malt and grassy hops - a little BBQ char and some residual sweetness of cinnamon sugar.

Very well-blended roasted malt with strong coffee component. Alcohol is present but lifts overall flavor profile nicely. Very strong bitter coffee with grassy hops - similar to nose. Nice stuff.

Velvety, coaty, warming stuff. Coffee strong on finish. Excellent.

Nicely drinkable for style - still a sipper. (535 characters)

11.5 oz bottle with no dates.

Glugged out of the bottle oil black with a huge 4 finger dense, foamy tan head that took a long time to dissipate, and when it finely subsided enough for me to drink it the glass was covered in sticky lacing.

Smells like a cup of morning coffee you can stand a spoon in.. camping coffee, the kind that still have the grounds in the bottom of the pot, cooked over an open fire. I half expected after smelling it to have coffee grounds floating in it.

Taste is coffee, very strong coffee. It is like I poured myself a cup of coffee and then let it get cold sitting on the counter. If you can get your tongue, nose and brain past the coffee there are also some bitter chocolate tones as well. There is a sweetness for just a minute but it quickly gets over-run by bitterness that remains long after swallowing.

This is thick, chewy, and surprisingly creamy. Very viscous. I could have used something in the way of hops to remove some of the oil from my palate, but overall reasonably good for a RIS.

This is a once in a while beer IMO. A nightcap, or morning pick me up, but definitely not a session beer. Not a beer for the meek. not a beer for those who dont love coffee. IMO, slighty overhyped but still very good. (1,254 characters)

Pours nigh-completely black - just a touch of brown visible underneath the dark tan head. The scent that wafts up consists of coffee grounds, cocoa, faint cinnamon, and black bread. Taking a sip, the inital flavors are surprisingly understated and sweetly matly. Nothing too bold, for a second or so. A roasty base opens up for the topliner - and coffee makes a big entrance, taking the floor the way the bourbon flavors in Bourbon County do. Really dominant, like biting into an espresso bean, but balanced sufficiently, though by no means completely, by some dark fruit and cocoa touches. The bitter coffee aftertaste is just a touch astringent and takes on some similarity to cola on the back of the tongue and back teeth, which gets in the way, especially at warmer temps. In spite of this, the mouthfeel is close to perfect - rich, creamy and coating, but doesn't linger longer than welcome. Overall, this is a great entry in the style. I'll be sipping the remaining while watching Lord Stanley's Cup being handed around this eve - fittingly a Canadian beer for the national sport.

Edit - My S.O. was cooking wings while I was drinking this and the smell of the chicken mingling with the flavor of the coffee made it start to taste like bacon. Which is awesome, IMO, though not entirely apropos of the beer review... digression apologies. (1,344 characters)

Poured a beautiful pitch black with a nice one inch head. Smells heavily of coffee with some chocolate undertones. Each sip begins with a nice sweet coffee and finishes with the bitterness of a black coffee. The mouthfeel is medium with a nice creamy finish. I think I could have a couple of these at a time, a nice treat, but not something you could have continuously. Really glad I have a few more of these in the cellar for some aging. (438 characters)

I purchased this on a whim from Sam's Quik Stop in Durham. (Darn those close-to-register impulse stacks!) Something about the name of the brew called out to me, so I bought one of these 11.5oz bottles to sample; I'm glad I did.

It pours an outrageously pitch black, with a dark tan head just chock full of tiny bubbles. Honestly, this has to be one of the densely packed heads I've seen on a beer. The two-finger head began to dissipate within a few minutes, and soon it became a thin lacing that clung to the rim and spread about halfway across the surface.

Coffee dominates the aroma. Although other smells are certainly there (dark roasted malts, dark unsweetened cocoa, and alcohol), it's the coffee that hits the nose hard and barely lets go. It probably goes without saying the flavor is also controlled by coffee. There is an element of dark, ripe fruit in the center and a nice balance of hop bitterness at the finish. Dark roasted malts are noticeable; this contributes a nice smokey character to the entire tasting experience.

It is bit creamy, with a medium to full body and just a little too much carbonation (for my taste, anyway). This is certainly a most enjoyable coffee stout; I'm glad I spent the money and time getting to know it. (1,252 characters)
