Yes, its been awhile since I have posted a Beer of the Moment. My original idea for this beer was to pick a 'summer but not summer beer'. Well, after having my first bottle of Peche Mortel, that post will have to wait. Peche Mortel is definitely not what one would consider a summer beer, but good beer doesn't care about what season it is.
Peche Mortel is brewed by Dieu du Ciel a small brewpub/brewery in Montreal, Canada, that makes a variety of styles from Belgians to American IPA's. The beer they are best known for is the Peche Mortel, a highly rated Imperial Stout that combines the intense richness of coffee with a deep roasted malts. The taste is one to savor, with cocoa intermingling with the coffee, and a great creamy mouthfeel. This reminds me of the Pisgah Valdez, only with a bit more body. Coffee lovers, stout lovers, or just beer lovers should definitely run to Bruisin' Ales to pick one up, as supplies are limited. While picking this up, you should look over the full selection of Dieu Du Ciel beers. I also sampled the Rosee D'hibscus, which is a Belgian Wheat style ale brewed with you guessed it, hibiscus.
