BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Brasserie Dieu du Ciel!
Quebec, Canada

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.

12oz bottle poured into tulip.

Pours black with a decent amount of foamy tan head.

Smell is toasted malt, coffee, and slight alcohol.

Taste is very coffee forward, with toasted malt, vanilla, a slight bitterness, and much more coffee. No alcohol perceived whatsoever. Very tasty for sure, loving the coffee!

Mouthfeel is super creamy. Medium bodied with incredible smoothness. Excellent.

Overall, this is among the best coffee stouts I've had. The flavor is outstanding and it couldn't be smoother going down. If you see this, don't pass it up!
