Péché Mortel. It's French for "mortal sin," and the name of Dieu du Ciel's mind blowing Imperial Coffee Stout. This Saturday, February 28th, join us in Montpelier for Péché Day, a celebration of this delightful brew. We'll have four variations of the beer on tap (descriptions below) and maybe a few other surprises. We invite you to come get sinful with us - just let us know you're coming via our Event page! The fun will begin at noon, right when we open!
PÉCHÉ DAY BEER DESCRIPTIONS
PÉCHÉ MORTEL CLASSIC Imperial Coffee Stout, 9.5%
Péché Mortel (French for "Mortal Sin") is an intensely black and dense beer with very pronounced roasted flavours. 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 with moderation.
PÉCHÉ MORTEL 2015 SPECIAL EDITION Imperial Coffee Stout, 9%
Unlike the regular version that uses two different coffees from Mexico, the Péché Mortel 2015 Special Edition has been brewed with a single origin coffee from Kenya, chosen in collaboration with Jean-François Leduc from St. Henri cooperative in Montreal. Lightly roasted, it provides a fruity and anise taste to the beer, supplemented by acidity and dark chocolate aromas.
PÉCHÉ VÉNIEL 2015 Coffee Stout, 6%
The Péché Véniel 2015 is a light version of the classic Péché Mortel and has been brewed with a single origin brown coffee, chosen in collaboration with Jean-François Leduc from St. Henri cooperative in Montreal. It presents aromas of roasted malt, caramel, vanilla and nuts.
PÉCHÉ MORTEL BOURBON 2011 Imperial Coffee Stout aged in Bourbon barrels, 9.5%
This version of the classic Péché Mortel was aged in oak barrels that previously hosted Bourbon. This treatment gives a woody and pronounced flavor of oak and Bourbon to the beer. As it ages, the oak softens and the coffee fades, revealing a vinous character.
