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.

Enteogenisk (152) - Bålsta, SWEDEN - APR 4, 2016
(341 ml bottle in wine glass.) Pours heavy in dar brown leaving a nice half finger white head. Has a typical sugary aroma with the significant yeast character. Taste has some chocolate followed by a load of heat from the alcohol.

Chacal (1) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 3, 2016 does not count
Bien équilibrée et intense, sucré et maltée accent sur le caramel. Légere amertume et de fruit. Malgré le niveau d’alcool élevé on ne récent pas une chaleur trop prononcée. Tel que mentionné cette biere d’inspiration Belge mais je n’y retrouve pas le goût de la levure Belge dont certaines bieres québécoises ont réussirent a obtenir.

hackobock (3486) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 31, 2016
March 31, 2016. Bottle, bottled November 2, 2015.
Deep ruby red with a small frothy tan head that quickly dissipates into a small ring around the edge. Aroma is sweet brown sugar, baked pear, notes of prunes, dark berries, roasted malt and alcohol. Taste is sweet, slight boozy, soft bitter. Finish is sweet toffee, dark bread, light notes of burnt sugar, dried fruits, dark berries and lasting warming alcohol. Medium bodied, very fine, slightly fizzy carbonation.
Good but a bit hot at the moment, five months since bottling so I guess it would benefit with more time.

beerplace (770) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 24, 2016
UPDATED: MAR 24, 2016 0.341ml bottled in November 2014. Pours a clear dark amber with a tan head. Aroma is toffee, caramel, dark fruits, slightly sweet-sour, alcohol notes on the background. Similar to original Belgian versions of this beer style. Taste is sweet, caramel with a slight alcohol bitterness. Surprisingly it is not very rich. Roasted malt, bready aftertaste. Hm... Definitely is not one of the best Dieu du Ciel’s beer I’ve tried...

Bue après un vieillissement d’un an. Couleur noir/rubis, avec léger dépôt. Goût incroyable de caramel, de chocolat et d’alcool, se comparant avantageusement à un bon porto. Une bière dans mon top 3!

ryecatcher (1348) - Bridgeport, Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 22, 2016
Murky, copper brown pour with smallish head. Nose is mild funk, brown sugar, earth, dried fruit (lotta figs and raisins), vanilla, some grassy notes. Mouth is medium-full bodied, creamy, decent sweetness up front, chewy, candy sugar, maple, toffee, prunes, toasted pumpernickel, gradually increasing bitterness and finishing with a tanniny mouth. Très Bien.

LouisP (215) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 14, 2016
Bouteille de 341ml. - Couleur brune rougeâtre avec peu de carbonation. - Peu d'arômes. Les arômes de levure belge, alcool, fruits secs ressortent le plus. - En bouche, petit côté boisé, de dattes, notes de caramel, un petite pointe alcoolisé. - Je suis partial aux bières d'inspiration belges et celle-ci est très fidèle au style. Bien faite, facile à boire pour une bière au-dessus de 10%, les moines seraient fiers de celle-là. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bawelt (545) - Lyon, FRANCE - FEB 14, 2016
Très bonne, très (trop) légère pour une bière titrant à plus de dix. Nez magnifique entre la quadruple belge avec un peu de levures, les fruits rouges avec une dominante fraise, pas mal de caramel et fond légèrement épicé. La bouche est assez sirupeuse mais très douce, pas du tout éthylique, un peu décevante de ce côté. On retrouve une longueur assez caramel épicé avec un léger fond fraise. Très agréable.
