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.

341ml brown bottle. Bottled 04/10. Dark brown pour, deep orange-amber highlights, looks fairly clear. Tan head, a good 2 fingers in height on first pour, then settles to a nice light creamy covering on the surface. Frothy lacing. Nose has sweet chocolate malt with a light suggestion of coffee, some alcohol and yeast spiciness. In the mouth, lots of strong dark malt character - dark chocolate like malts with that almost coffeeish edge, plenty of sweetness, some plummy fruit notes. Ends with some bitterness and some alcoholic notes and also a hint of yeast. Roasty, chocolateish fade out. Soft mouthfeel, gentle natural carbonation. Full in body. Great abt with nice malts and moderate alcohol character. Will try aging some to see if the alc fades a bit. Still a winner.

Dark, cloudy brown in color with a tiny head; small specks of sediment floats at the bottom, but it’s minimal. Aromas of dark fruits ride atop a creamy dessert. Flavors are a blend of chocolates, caramel, dark dried fruits, candied fruits, and rich malts; finishes with more fruity sweetness along with some spice & booze. Reminds me of a crème brulee or holiday fruitcake. Medium-bodied throughout with no carbonation. As it warms, the majority of the initial flavors recede to make way for more spicy & boozy notes. It’s an excellent example of the style, but I wish there was more sediment to help the beer as it ages. Cheers! This one comes highly recommended for any Belgian beer fan!

Flaska systembolaget. Disig brunguldig kulör. Doft av äpplemos, jäst och örter. Maltig och lätt rostad smak. Järn, torkad frukt och kryddor. Lätt sötma med en ganska sträv och torr munkänsla. Värmande alkohol.

Adamsville (225) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 30, 2016
Une belle bière bourgogne dans laquelle le malt est, à ma perception, bien plus imposant que ce que la levure belge a à offrir. Caramel sucré, fruits séchés, alcool perceptible selon l’âge de la bière, réconfortante. Personnellement, je la préfère oubliée dans le sous-sol quelque temps que bien fraîche lors de sa sortie.
