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.

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!

Thick belgian boogie going on. Ripe and sweet fruits. Strong. Almost too strong, takes power from the main taste.

lello4ever (211) - ITALY - APR 10, 2015
Splendida birra del birrificio canadese Dieu du Ciel, una quadrupel dal bel colore marrone con vene rosse e una schiuma compatta beige. Al naso caramello e spezie, al primo sorso il dolce del malto, del caramello, della frutta sono accompagnati da una spiccata alcolicità (10.5%), che però accompagna molto bene. Eccellente esempio di birra in stile d’abbazia.

Bière forte en alcool, mais assez bien balancée. Idéal pour accompagner un repas bien gras.
