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.

Metalchopz (3709) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 11, 2018
Pours a hazy deep amber colour with lots of particles through it. The head is beige, very long lasting with some creamy lace. What beautiful aromas with so much going on, but so well-blended. Lots of different fruits found here with the caramel malts, spices and tea. Many berry notes that seem to be predominant. Warming mouthfeel with a nice dryness and alcohol in the finish. More of the dark fruits in the flavours with some roasted malts in the finish and mild grassiness. Bitterness becomes stronger, lingers. Very nicely done.

UPDATED: FEB 7, 2018 De color ambre fosc. S'entreveu transparent. L'aroma té fenols com els dels llevats belgues. No s'olora molt de caramel. En canvi en boca en té molt. Crec que massa per l' estil.

UPDATED: FEB 7, 2018 Pivo u flaši. On koji su probali dosta Belgijskih piva odmah skuže da kad piju pivu koje je napravljeno u Belgijskom stilu a nije iz Belgije nešto fali , i da je ono šta mu fali možda to , što nije 'skuhano' u Belgiji . Ne znam , mislim da je tu stvar vode , ali možda mu dok se kuha fali 'Belgijsko ozračje' :) Uglavnom pivo ima sve karakteristike Quadrupela. Finu aromu slada i suhog voća , okus je 'bogat' kao i aroma , sladak , kombinacija suhog voća i karamele , jedino šta mu fali taj Belgijski 'touch' da bi dobio balans ! Ali svakako vrlo dobar Quadrupel.

MatChar (128) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 30, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 30, 2018 Bottle (17-10-25). Appearance: light brownish ruby, thin white foam quickly getting into thin laces, low to medium carbonation. Smell: light cherry and raspberry, very subtle caramel. Taste: notes of red figs and cherries, fruits, surprisingly low sweetness, quite hoppy and drinkable for style/ABV. Overall: much less sweet and much more drinkable than its European counterparts, might lack complexity in aromatic profile.

Alengrin (6007) - BELGIUM - JAN 28, 2018
Renowned quad from this equally renowned Canadian craft brewer, bottle from Geers. Thick, regular, relatively stable though large-bubbled, pale greyish beige head over a ruddy copper coloured, bronze-ish beer. Aroma of butterscotch, stewed apples, ketchup, caramel sauce, egg yolk, some vague onsetting 'rusty' oxidation, fig compote, yellow raisins, banana bread, carrot soup, honey candy, pear, coriander. Sweet fruity onseet, candy apple, dried banana, candied fig and blackberry jam, sourish undercurrent, medium carbo, full and supple, rather resinous mouthfeel. Thick caramelly sweet malt body with a soft toasty bitterish edge, which in itself matches well with a late, 'noble', bit peppery and leafy hop bitter accent; rounds off with a strong but non-wry afterglow of brandy- and rum-like alcohol, with the caramel sweetness and soft toasted bitterishness lingering. Warming, rich, textbook quadrupel, on a par with some of the originals in the style, think La Trappe Quadrupel or Chimay Bleu. Aged well, too, as the oxidation in this case remains subtle and fits in well with the whole. Glad I ticked this one.

Agtronic (33) - Laval, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 14, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 15, 2018 Pours a dark saturated copper colour, with a generous 2-finger head. Aroma is potent and lively. Dark ripe fruit, raisins with a slight metallic touch. Little to no yeast. Flavor is dark fruit, medium to high sweetness. Alcohol is present, but very soft in character. No sign of the hot alcohol "bite" that often accompanies beers this high in alcohol. Not really picking up on any Belgian yeast character. Overall, I loved the aroma of the beer, and the flavor is great, but I found it a touch too sweet. I was really shocked at how well the alcohol was hidden. Great sipper for when you're sitting by the fire during a Canadian winter.

Poobah (485) - New Orleans, Louisiana, USA - DEC 16, 2017
Iced tea brown with a thin head and a dark fruit nose. Well-carbonated and somewhat malty with dark fruit, brown sugar sweetness and some warming in the finish.

vincentvega72 (961) - Terneuzen, NETHERLANDS - DEC 15, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2017 Donkerbruin bier met rode schijn. Off-white schuimkraag die redelijk snel inzakt tot fijn laagje. Caramel, donker fruit, blauwe bessen, kandij. Mild-bittere afdronk, licht warmend. Zeer goeie quadrupel.

Amen Dieu du Ciel, Amen et ENFIN une brune....très brune trop brune? Jamais trop brune! Très sucrée....trop sucrée? Jamais trop sucrée!! Très épicée...trop épicée? Non, jamais! Car vous savez brasser! Du caramel, du malt, du pain aux bananes épicé plein de fruit confits, du grain, du foin, de la terre, des dattes, des noix....holalala, tant de merveilles a gouter! Il suffirait d'un peu plus de mordant et carbonisation et cette bière serait ma nouvelle religion. Amen, man.
