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.

Pours mahogany brown with white foam. Nose is chocolate, nougat, hazelnuts, butter. Very nice and balanced mouthfeel, full bodied with a surprisingly nutty finish! Really interesting! Chocolate and fried fruits like plums also appearing. A wonerful long zipper!

Brewhemia (293) - 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 (612) - 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.

coachd (731) - Missouri, USA - FEB 24, 2017
Chocolatey aroma with plum and booze. Amber color with lots of sediment in the pour. Sweeter than most quads with rich dark fruit flavor, plum and oak. Slight booze burn aftertaste. Good smooth palate. This was really good.

Hopmaestro (1543) - rebro, SWEDEN - FEB 21, 2017
Aroma is massive from dark fruits such as plums, figs and raisins. Sweet malty and some nuts as well. Taste is sweet, dark toffee, raisins and a touch of yeast. Light brandy notes and also a touch of warming alcohol. I had one of these earlier this year, and let me tell you, it gets better with some rest time in the stash.

Matured 1 and a half year on bottle which was probably a little too long. A great fruity aroma lingers in the background and gives a hint of what may have been. The taste is also flawed by the aging, with notes of old paper. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

För att vara en Brown Ale är den helt ok. Tror nog att jag hade lagrat den för länge, 1 år och 3 månader. Kändes platt och smakerna var för svaga. Lite besviken. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
