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.

Rich cocoa nibs, boozy aroma. Velvety smooth mouthfeel with a bittersweet finish. Not bad.

OMG!! What an impressive imperial stout this is! Coffee and dark roasts are in the smell and flavor. An overall hardy mouthfeel. You know you are drinking an imperial stout the second it gently rolls over your taste buds. Everything improves as it warms in your snifter. It was disappointing to see the bottom of the glass. This stout shall be forever in my "wants".
