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.

By the look of the head it was a nitro pour. Black bodied with a thick tan head that lasts and lasts.

Deep creamy roasty coffee aroma. Some dark fruit.

Roasty coffee flavor. Really lightly bitter dark chocolate. Dark fruit.

Super smooth and luxurious on the tongue. A big nitro beer does the trick.

Really tasty with big coffee character dominating.
