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.

Bought at the Winooski Bev in early August. Poured in to a wine glass at my mom's house. No date on the bottle.

A - Pitch black in color with two fingers of brown head with a red tent. Less lacing than a lot of imperial stouts.

S - Roasted malt, coffee, dark fruits, hop oil, and alcohol.

T - A lot of coffee, followed by burnt malts and alcohol. A bit of a light finigh though.

O - Very drinkable. However, I had this side by side with Storm King, Ten FIDY, and Dark Truth. This was my least favorite.
