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.

Gluepot (665) - 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 (781) - 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. Nougatfärgad med ett medelstort smutsvitt skum. Dofter av marsipan, karamell, läder och frukt. Samma återkommer i smaken tillsammans med en värmande alkohol och lätt av vanilj. Rund och len munkänsla. Mycket bra!

tfontana (1039) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 20, 2016
Bottle pour into tulip glass from Leary’s 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.

CObiased (516) - Bayfield, Colorado, USA - NOV 18, 2016
Bottle - pours a murky swap water brown with a thin almost tan head. Sweet and bready aroma filled with ripe fruits, subtle nuttiness and rich malts. A thick mouthful reveals layers of hearty bread, raisin, plum, bran, cooked apple, toasted grain and a hint of pecan.
