Beer 360/365 – Dieu Du Ciel Peche Mortel

De Dieu Ciel Peche Mortel

Style: Imperial Stout

ABV: 9.5%

Purchased at: Sent to me by Jared

What makes this beer different: One of the most intensely coffee flavored stouts ever.

Will I be drinking this again: Yes if I can find it again.

Grade: A

11/3/2010: I’m pretty sure this is my first beer from Dieu Du Ciel. I have a bottle of Aphrodisiaque in the basement, but it didn’t make the cut for the final handful of beers for my 365. I am sure I will drink and review it after the 365 is over.

The nose smells like used up coffee grinds, which is good because I love coffee (drinking some boca java as I type this). The flavor is all about semi-bitter roasted coffee, but it is rounded out nicely by some bitter chocolate. The alcohol is completely hidden. The mouthfeel is the highlight of this beer, so full and so creamy. This beer is by no means complex, its all about the coffee. Sometimes coffee doesn’t come through in big heavy stouts like this, but the coffee makes itself well known in Peche Mortel. The coffee flavor may be a bit too much for non-java lovers, but me personally I loved it.

Picture of the day: Baby is not a fan of yoda.

  1. I need to revisit this one. So many people love it and when I tried it I thought it was way too boozy and over carbonated. I am a huge coffee fan, so I thought this one would be right up my alley.

    • I can see how it might be over carbed, but I don’t think it was boozy at all. Give it another shot!
