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.

Poured from a 11.5 oz bottle into an oversize wine glass. Purchased in North Providence, RI.
Appearance- Pours a deep brown, nearly black body with a 1.5″ dark head that reduces fairly quickly to a ring of foam.
Smell- Very inviting on the nose.. big freshly brewed coffee notes, coffee beans, some chocolate, but mostly heavy coffee.
Taste- Follows the nose with a big initial coffee kick, freshly ground coffee, roasty malt, chocolate, charred toastyness, heavily roasted coffee beans on the finish, some smoke.
Mouthfeel- Medium-heavy body with minimal carbonation. Rich and smooth.
Very nice, a hugely coffee forward beer. Very well done. Recommendable.
