A good brown, can’t really put a title on it. Pours a very nice thick red with very little head. Smells very good, like cherries and cranberries and a bit of rose. Taste is boozy, with lots of cranberries, and a bit of lambic. Finish is candied fruit. Had in the bottle at Rockbottom Brewpub.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
This beer has a dark murky body with some lighter mahogany and reddish brown highlights. From the pour I got a thin creamy off head. The small head quickly fades to a light film covering with a ring of foam at the edge of the glass. Lacing is slick and slides right down the glass. It has a big fruity/estery aroma with hints of dark dried fruits like raisins and plum or prune. There are also notes of yeast and sweet bready/toasty almost chocolaty malt and as it warms I get some cherry notes too, along with mellow hints of its big 10.5% abv. It starts with its good sweet malty base and then adds fruity and yeast notes to the mix. Everything from the aroma is picked up here and slowly fades off the tongue with some mellow peppery/spicy hops and boozy alcohol. Its full bodied and finely carbonated, which I feel is perfect for the style

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The color is an opaque orangeish brown with a small light tan head and quite a bit of large-grain sediment floating throughout (but more concentrated towards the bottom of the glass). The aroma blends booze (which is almost too much), fig, caramel malts, clove, and dark fruit, and the taste is a complex blend of a silght umami, mild sourness, and a touch of malty sweetness. The palate fuses a malty (mostly caramel malts) and slightly boozy finish, thick and slick texture, medium-full body, and a soft carbonation.

Wow! What a wonderful Belgian quad. Ubër sweet and herbal with caramel and chocolate flavors; dare I say tobacco hints?? Great body to this boozy brown ale. This brew could have been brewed by Abbey monks instead of drunks in Quebec.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Strong brown ale inspired by the beer brewed by Belgian Trappist monks. Very little bitterness, this beer has intense malty and sweet flavours, mixed with the taste of chocolate and caramel. It presents complex red fruit and spice flavours due to the type of yeast that is used during the brewing process. This beer is at its best only after it has aged for six months. The Rigor Mortis are complex beers designed and brewed with patience and care in the tradition of the great Belgian Abbey beers.Rigor Mortis Abt is brewed only once a year, and is sold in April until stocks last.
