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.

dmschefke (571) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - JUN 9, 2009
Pours a deep brown with medium off-white head, minimal lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, dried tart and dark fruit, sugar, and chocolate. Flavor matches well and is quite complex. Finish is a bit hot and could probably use some mellowing in the cellar, just like the bottle says, age it at least 6 months... I just couldn’t wait!

rumproasts (4132) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUN 9, 2015
Tap at brewery. Very deep amber brown. Dark fruity sweetness. Moderate warming booze. A bit too sweet, and overly hot. Doesn’t have the complexity of better quads.

Unde (579) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 26, 2015
Muddy brown colour with not much head but some lacing sticks to the glass. Aroma has dried fruits, plums, yeast and roasted malts. Taste is a bit boozy. There is dried fruits, plums and brown sugar. Full body and high carbonation. I don’t know why but I didn’t enjoy this as much as I thought I would. Something was missing here.

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

Quadrupel bem forte e saborosa.Bela aparência com espuma consistente. O álcool é bem perceptível o que compromete um pouco o conjunto.
