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 from latest vintage (2012). Thanks to me. Intense malty/red fruity aromas emanate from this deep brown brew. It is topped by a small but persistent head that leaves some heavy lacing. Taste-wise is it malty but not cloyingly so. Flavors of plums, malt, chocolate and bread make the experience so complete. This is a world league quad, one that should be respected and I echo the brewers’ wish that it should be aged for at least six months as I just experienced empirically!

Flaska från SB, ca 9 månader(?). Disig smutsbrun vätska med fingerhögt beigebrunt skum. Stor maltsötma i doften med russin, torkad frukt, muscovadosocker i mängder, skumbanan. Stor kropp med ganska märkbar alkohol. Söt med mycket torkad frukt, muscovadosocker, choklad, kola. Vägs upp med en del humle i avslutningen. Även en lätt bitter ton från alkoholen. Stor, söt brown ale som tål att smuttas på en stund.

Bttle. Brun foncé. Col léger. Nez caramel. Idem pour le goût. Finale extra. Bière style trappiste qui n’a rien à leur envier.

Bouteille de 341ml au Marché des Brasseurs. Brune ’cola’ avec une mince mais persistante mousse beige. Nez de caramel et de fruits secs; contrairement à mes confrères, je sent la présence de l’alcool à travers ce voile sucré. Elle me semble un peu mince en bouche, mais le goût de caramel, chocolat et fruits légèrement épicés fait vite oublier ce petit point négatif. L’alcool est aussi très bien caché par le goût complexe de ce nectar divin, mais on finit par ressentir un réchauffement au bedon vers la mi bouteille. Super de bonne quad d’abbaye... aujourd’hui 15 mai il neige à Chénéville, j’apprécie donc la chaleur de cette bière.
