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.

Strong beer, a bit too strong for my taste as the flavours are overpowered by the alcohol. Yet, a good beer from DDC.

I am not dead yet. And I want more! Pure pleasure to enjoy beer like this.
Transparent dark color with a fine thick tan head. Good lacing and a solid aroma. Medium to full body and a smooth carbonation level. Oily texture and a nice balanced sweetness. Good lasting flavor with candy sugar, dried fruits, banana, almonds and toffee. Dangerously well masked alcohol.
[Bottle from Systembolaget in Sweden]

Schiuma poco persistente, colore ambrato scuro, aroma vaniglia, malto, lievito, prugna. Al palato uvetta e vaniglia, corpo medio, leggero finale metallico, un po aspra. Una abt particolare pi verso le strong ale belghe che alle quadrupel trappiste.

Brewhemia (297) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 8, 2017
Slightly hazy dark cobber with light brown head. Aroma has lots of fruit esters (banana, apple), notes of dried fruits (prunes, raisins etc), malty notes of caramel and bread and lots of alcohol. Nice complexity. The taste is medium to heavy sweet, slightly acidic and very lightly bitter. Flavor has notes of dried fruits and toffee. Lots of flavor and complexity. I like it.

Bierdimpfe (627) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 28, 2017
1 year in the cellar : Deeply clouded and murky reddish brown color with good activity and a floating mist of yeast. Faint creamy light brown 1 finger head, lasting around 2 minutes, with a swirl it makes decent legs. Flavors of prunes, plums, cherries, raisins, walnuts, dark roasted grains, molasses, caramel, coffee, cocoa, wood, herbal spices. Thick and rich dark fruity sugary feel, appetizer like, yet with a sharp spicy and malty sensation. Slick and smooth medium body with almost champagne like carbonation, highly crispy. Very strong finish, vinous and port like, pleasant dark fruits with burnt malts, sharp earthy spices and yeast, with notes of peppercorn and oak. I can almost directly taste the barrel. Not excessively dry and heavy like most Quads, more leaning towards a barley wine feel. Incredible taste, balance, and intensity. Highly complex with tons of rich flavors. Highly warming and still a bit fresh. Overall exquisite quality craft. Probably the best one from DDC, truly my favorite one form them until now, the hype is real. I can rarely drink a whole bottle of quad by myself, but this time it was so easy.

Bottle from Systembolaget, cellared for about a year. Pours dark copper brown with a faint beige head. Aroma and taste of dates, figs, light nuttiness. Dried plum, clean dark caramel. Smooth and creamy texture. Pretty nice overall with a slight tint of booze.
