COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Aroma is diaper, alcohol, sugar, and caramel. Taste is cola, sweet alcohol, sugar, and caramel. Kind of dull and lifeless. Meh.

Courtesy of SoLan. Pours murky amber with deep copper hues and assertive and lasting tan head. The aroma is dark rich fruity esters of prunes, plums and dark ripe cherries to go along with sweet malts and a touch of pepperiness. The taste is rich and sweet with loads of fruit esters going on like in the nose with red apples, prunes, plums and sugar drenched cranberries. It gets a bit peppery here and there too. It has a smooth mouth feel.

Very nice. Dark pour with little head. Excellent dark fruit and light fruit aromas coming off this one. It’s basically a malt bomb. Flavor is very full with more fruits and some chocolate coming out. Finish is excellent. Fruity and yeasty and just a bit boozy. Nice quad.

Bottle. Brown pour with white head that dissipates within a minute. Dark fruits, sweet dark malt, spices and slight alcohol warming. Nice beer flavor is not like a 10.5 percent beer.

Aubrey (3482) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - AUG 12, 2009
Smells like spicy baked apples. Complex malts have a lot going on. Jammy sweetness, with an overtone of sweet bread and pastries. Cooked brown sugar and warm molasses coat some bold spicy notes. Apple pie is in there, too. Bitterness is very mild but it surfaces nicely in the finish. Earthy, wholesome. Warming, cozy alcohol.

A Mes rate. Bottle at the Rake thanks to Rudiger.
Semi hazy amber with a thin off white head. Amazing fruity aroma. Lots of sweet burnt sugar notes. Glorious marzipan and some excellent sweet alcohol. Damn good smell. The flavour is almost identical. Very slight soy and really tasty caramel. Surprisingly dry in the finish leading to a fantastic sweet marzipan and burnt sugar finish. Maybe a little straight forward but everything it does it does very well indeed. Excellent stuff. Could see me getting messy on this.
