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.

Primo: czym sie kurde rozni Abt od Quadrupla?
Secundo: Zabutelkowany 30 listopada 2016, czyli swiezy
Tertio: Bardzo fajny aromat owocowy, w roznych formach - suszonych (zwlaszcza rodzynki, ale tez jakies sliwkowe suszone a nawet wisniowe skojarzenia), swiezych, moze nieco przejrzalych (morele, brzoskwinie, moze nawet banany?), na cieplo jeszcze w tle wychodza kandyzowane figi (mrau) i migdalowe jakies klimaty, nieco karmelu, troche przyprawowosci pieprzowo-gozdzikowej, slad czekolady. W ustach polslodki (im cieplej tym bardziej slodki sie wydaje), nieco (ale tylko nieco niestety) syropowa konsystencja, bardzo wysoko wysycony, w odbiorze w porownaniu do aromatu wiecej jakichs ziolowo-przyprawowo-ziemistych nutek. Alkohol jednoznacznie odczuwalny, ale nie przeszkadzajacy. Pojawia sie tez ciut kwaskowatosci takiej cytrynowej

Z jednej strony pilem duzo bardziej mi pasujacych quadrupli, ale z drugiej strony ten jest dosc unikalny - w odroznieniu od konkurencji jest bardzo lekki w odbiorze, bardzo pijalny - mimo zlozonosci. Jest tez ciut agresywny, ale to chyba glownie przez przyprawowosc w polaczeniu z dzika iloscia co2. BDB+

azzurro (255) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 23, 2017
Strong beer, a bit too strong for my taste as the flavours are overpowered by the alcohol. Yet, a good beer from DDC.

Cunningham (7990) - Halden, NORWAY - APR 14, 2017
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]

carlom (58) - ITALY - APR 7, 2017
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 più verso le strong ale belghe che alle quadrupel trappiste.

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 (313) - 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.
