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.

Dark, cloudy brown in color with a tiny head; small specks of sediment floats at the bottom, but its minimal. Aromas of dark fruits ride atop a creamy dessert. Flavors are a blend of chocolates, caramel, dark dried fruits, candied fruits, and rich malts; finishes with more fruity sweetness along with some spice & booze. Reminds me of a crme brulee or holiday fruitcake. Medium-bodied throughout with no carbonation. As it warms, the majority of the initial flavors recede to make way for more spicy & boozy notes. Its an excellent example of the style, but I wish there was more sediment to help the beer as it ages. Cheers! This one comes highly recommended for any Belgian beer fan!

Adamsville (272) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 30, 2016
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2017 Apparence : Brune orange, col brun ple, belle dentelle laisse derrire, carbonatation lente, beaucoup de levures au fond du verre.
Nez : Caramel, accents de toffee, fruits confits en arrire-plan, levure belge, effluves dalcool.
Got : Levure belge prononce aux notes pices sur la langue; caramel, toffee et fruits confits par la suite. La finale prsente de trs lgres notes dalcool avec laspect levur钒 qui nous suit tout du long ainsi quune faible amertume. Plus elle se rchauffe, plus les fruits confits font leur place.
Sensation : Bon corps, effervescence qui se mle avec laspect pic de la levure, chaleureuse.
Bref : Cette version (2016) me parat beaucoup plus ax sur la levure belge que les versions prcdentes, ce qui nest pas un dfaut en soit considrant le style de la bire! Plus pice, moins sucre, alcool moins apparent, on se croirait en compagnie de moines. Et pourtant, il manque un petit quelque chose ou trop de levure justement?
