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 it’s 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 crème 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. It’s 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!

Flaska systembolaget. Disig brunguldig kulör. Doft av äpplemos, jäst och örter. Maltig och lätt rostad smak. Järn, torkad frukt och kryddor. Lätt sötma med en ganska sträv och torr munkänsla. Värmande alkohol.

UPDATED: JAN 26, 2017 Apparence : Brune orangée, col brun pâle, belle dentelle laissée derrière, carbonatation lente, beaucoup de levures au fond du verre.
Nez : Caramel, accents de toffee, fruits confits en arrière-plan, levure belge, effluves d’alcool.
Goût : Levure belge prononcée aux notes épicées sur la langue; caramel, toffee et fruits confits par la suite. La finale présente de très légères notes d’alcool avec l’aspect ‘’levuré’’ qui nous suit tout du long ainsi qu’une faible amertume. Plus elle se réchauffe, plus les fruits confits font leur place.
Sensation : Bon corps, effervescence qui se mêle avec l’aspect épicé de la levure, chaleureuse.
Bref : Cette version (2016) me paraît beaucoup plus axé sur la levure belge que les versions précédentes, ce qui n’est pas un défaut en soit considérant le style de la bière! Plus épicée, moins sucrée, alcool moins apparent, on se croirait en compagnie de moines. Et pourtant, il manque un petit quelque chose… ou trop de levure justement?

Dark burgundy, almost brown color. Aroma has a lot of sweet fruits, rasins, figs, some alcohol. Taste is sweet with some spices and a lot of yeast. Warm, alcoholic finish. Really good!
