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.

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 (1561) - 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

Gluepot (591) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 20, 2017
Big, complex and well crafted. A dense off-white head on a mahogany body. The nose is sumptuous, featuring sweet caramel malt, spice, citrus and tropical fruit, and a fruity tartness. The taste is predictably complex and layered. Dense Caramel and toffee tasting malts, dark fruit, candied fruit, plums, classic spices and a solid element of Belgian yeast (with a slight bubblegum note) add to the blend. Sweet but tart, dense and slick, this is another DDC classic.

Carlisle (680) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 2, 2017
Bottle. Pours cloudy ruby-brown with light beige head and lacing. Nose of plums and dried cherries. Cherry skins with some apple and plum notes. Bready malt and caramel follows. Sweetness gives way to a semi-dry note in the finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Flaska. Nougatfrgad med ett medelstort smutsvitt skum. Dofter av marsipan, karamell, lder och frukt. Samma terkommer i smaken tillsammans med en vrmande alkohol och ltt av vanilj. Rund och len munknsla. Mycket bra!

tfontana (911) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 20, 2016
Bottle pour into tulip glass from Learys Fine Wines, Newburyport. Appearance is hazy, light red with discernible small dark chunks of sediment, nice sparkle, 1/2-finger width beige head with poor retention and fair soapy lacing. Aroma is strong dark fruits with notes of caramel and brown sugar and hint of yeast tartness. Taste is rich caramel malts and dark fruits with hint of alcohol. Palate is light-to-medium bodied with smooth, creamy texture, average carbonation and slight alcohol zing to the tongue and warming of the esophagus without noticing as much in the flavor. Overall, a nice, rich representative of the style.
