Brasserie Dieu du ciel’s Péché Mortel, an imperial coffee stout, is one of their most well-known and popular beers. To celebrate the beer, they’ve brewed 5 different versions that will be poured, along with the original, at bars around the US and Canada.
Come to Spuyten Duyvil NYC on Saturday, 27 February to try them all!
- Péché Mortel
The original. 9.5% imperial coffee stout that made its debut at the Montreal brewpub in 2001.
- Péché Mortel Dry
Dryer and stronger than the original at 10% abv, this version has a dry, toasted taste of the barley and a full coffee flavour.
- Péché Mortel Spécial 2016
Each year the brewery chooses one or two new coffee varieties for Péché with the help of their friends at Café St-Henri, a very small roaster in Montreal. This year, the new variety gives a unique flavor to Péché Mortel. They chose a coffee from Kenya called M’Beguka. The light roast enchances the coffee flavor and brings out fruity cassis and rhubarb flavors, 9.9%
- Péché Mortel Bourbon 2015
A couple of years ago, the brewery started filling some Bourbon barrels with Péché. They age the beer for a minimum of 6 months and release when the wood and vanilla notes are complementary to the beer.
- Péché Véniel
Created last year at the Montreal brewpub, it’s a lighter version of Péché. It’s a full body stout brewed with a special coffee that goes well with this lower alcohol version. This year, Colombian coffee from Ignacio Quintero was used, giving a sweet caramel flavor the the beer, 6.5%
- Péché aux Pêches (or Peach Péché)
Over the years, consumers who are not familiar with the complexity of French language have often mistaken “péché” (which means “sin”) and mispronounced it as “pêche” (which means “peach”). It gave the brewery the idea to try a version of Péché Mortel that contains peach purée and entire peaches. The fruit gives a little fruity and tart taste, 9.5%
