Style: American Double / Imperial Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 9.50%

Availability: Rotating

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.

Serving type- 341 mL bottle poured into Portsmouth balloon glass.

Poured a beautiful jet black color with an ample two finger tan head, however the head quickly dissipated into nothing. I am smelling heavy coffee and roasted flavors. The taste is heavy on the coffee/espresso flavors. A very nice tasting beer that has good balance to it. This was a very nice change from the beers I have been consuming recently. In my opinion this beer has lived up to the hype, the high ABV is well hidden behind the smooth nature of the beer. A very nice tasting beer.
