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.

(Bottled) Slightly hazy, dark reddish brown with a small, bubbly head. Aroma of alcohol, dried fruit, sweetish malt. Flavor is sweet with dried fruit, berries, some roastiness, alcohol. Medium body, lowish carbonation. Too alcoholic for my tastebuds, even when compared to St.Bernardus Abt.

Snojerk321 (2960) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 2, 2009
12oz bottle, the labels keep getting better and better. Pours a lightly hazed rootbeer brown with a beige head that left some spotty lacing. Nose of candy and booze. Flavor is quite sweet with some candied dark fruits and a boozy kick.

Pours dark with a creamy head. Aroma is "slighty metallic" (could not place the smell until I read tokyogaot review) with hints of dark fruits. Taste is rich with with hints of rasin, cholate and some cherry. However, the alcohol is evident and the thinness of the beer makes the palet fad quickly. A nice attempt at a belgium quad but it falls short of being a great one in the end.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - JUL 1, 2009
11.5oz bottle. Dark red brown with a thick beige head. The aroma pops with cherry, lingonberry, and grape, plus a light spice and some alcohol. The flavor is sweet with lots of berry fruitiness and a touch of chocolate. The mouthfeel is hot and somewhat thin, with lasting alcohol dryness that borders on astringent. I can see this mellowing into something quite nice in a few years, but the alcohol is a bit on the harsh side and messes with the nice fruit and malt flavors.

tokyogoat (1503) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 30, 2009
Nose is slightly metallic, rich with grains / bread, and raisins. Poured like a cola. Taste was pretty boozy, very similar to rochefort 10, thin and hot from candi sugar, finishes with banana peel.

12-oz. Thanks, BitBucket! Poured blind. Crystal clear and very dark amber with bright caramel highlights. Dense creamy dark tan mousse. Big smokey nose. Thick creamy body. Buttery, butterscotchy, caramelly mid-palate. Toasty, roasty finish. Very nicely crafted, and the kind of quads in this 4-way blind pour with westy, bernie, and leviathan.

11.5 oz bottle. Cloudy brown with a beige coating. Nose is brown sugar, dough and raisin. Almost medium body with a tingle. Taste is caramel, plum and wood with bitter grass and alcohol. A bit rough on the edges. Could use more time in the cellar.
