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.

Splendida birra del birrificio canadese Dieu du Ciel, una quadrupel dal bel colore marrone con vene rosse e una schiuma compatta beige. Al naso caramello e spezie, al primo sorso il dolce del malto, del caramello, della frutta sono accompagnati da una spiccata alcolicità (10.5%), che però accompagna molto bene. Eccellente esempio di birra in stile d’abbazia.

Bière forte en alcool, mais assez bien balancée. Idéal pour accompagner un repas bien gras.

ARH (976) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 7, 2015
11.5 oz bottle poured into a teku glass. The aroma is primarily that of dark, dried fruits - raisin and plum - with sweet, cooked cherries, grapes, and a warm spice. Undertones include a light earthy touch, mellow alcohol, and late, a honey note. It pours a deep, murky amber honey color with a soft, medium small suds, airy orange brown head that retains a nice layer, a medium ring, and leaves a touch of lace on the glass. The taste is amedium high, malty sweet with just a touch of light bitter. The beer is smooth and oily with an active, fizzy carbonation and a medium full fruit and malt body. Flavors of caramel, chocolate, and sweet dark fruits come through in abundance - grapes, cherry, plum, raisins - with a late nutty note. The finish is dry and zesty with a clean, refreshing clove character. There’s a mellow warm alcohol touch as well as some semi sweet dark chocolate. The aftertaste is a mellow dark chocolate note with clove cleanliness.
