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.

Bottle at Ginger Man. Pretty reddish brown with lace. Very estery nose, caramel, spice. Fruity, big flavor, lots of esters, caramel coming out later. Decent enough but not the real abt I was hoping it would be.

Bottle @ Moeder Lambic, St Gillis - didn’t plan on ordering a tenpercenter, but then again, with such a name, who can be surprised... Aroma is very fruity, and spicy, ginger, strawberries, sugar; not unlike a very light red wine. Taste in line with aroma, thankfully quite balanced. Malts hide the alcohol a bit. Deep & savoury & not too sweet.

neongolden (644) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 3, 2014
(On tap at the DDC tap takeover @ barVolo, Aug 23 2014) Pours clear deep brownish red with a pale tan head that fades with a little lace. On the nose, dark raisin, spicy yeast, dark bread, brown sugar, faint tartness. On the palate, slight tartness at first leading into sweet brown sugar-coated dates and prunes, light spice box from yeast. Finish reasonably sweet with faint tart and bitter edge. Full oily body with soft mouth filling carb. Very nice quad indeed, one I hadn’t had on draught or from a good condition bottle from in years. On the softer side I feel, but complex and easy to sip.

manuelMTL (206) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 22, 2014
From 341 ml bottle. Pour is chestnut brown with a thin head. Chocolate and plum in the nose. Fresh brown bread. Smells like a fruity mousse au chocolat. Dried fruits hit the tongue with the first sip. Chocolate notes are still there. A lot of esthers in the aftertaste with a long bitter, boozy, chocolaty finish. Great mouthfeel!

The aroma is malt - caramel, a little raisin. The color is a cloudy reddish brown, the head is off white and fully diminishing, good lacing. The taste is bitter a little sour. Pretty good.

adster (475) - HUNGARY - AUG 12, 2014
Mustszínű italunk az apátsági belgák nyomdokain haladva kívánja saját felfogásban interpretálni, milyennek is kell lennie egy vérbeli abtnak. Illatok tekintetében maradéktalanul sikerül felidéznie a legfinomabb trappista remekek összetevőit: füge, datolya, zserbó és megannyi súlyos komponens tolakodik előre a sorban, minden alkalommal másféle köntösbe bújva. Vastag, testes ízek következnek, túlérett trópusi gyümölcsök, füstös szilva és szirupos élesztő dominál egy melengető, csípős alkoholos keretben, mely alkotóelemek olyan mesteri rendben állnak össze, hogy minden egyes korty során a tökéletesség az első szó, ami eszünkbe jut.

Draught at Mikkeller SF. Light brown color, beige head. Bitter taste with citrus, toffee, earthy notes, peppermint, yeast, alcohol and caramel. Bitter finish with citrus, earthy notes, caramel and a bit of alcohol. Excellent quadrupel.
