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.

Bouteille de 341ml au March des Brasseurs. Brune cola avec une mince mais persistante mousse beige. Nez de caramel et de fruits secs; contrairement mes confrres, je sent la prsence de lalcool travers ce voile sucr. Elle me semble un peu mince en bouche, mais le got de caramel, chocolat et fruits lgrement pics fait vite oublier ce petit point ngatif. Lalcool est aussi trs bien cach par le got complexe de ce nectar divin, mais on finit par ressentir un rchauffement au bedon vers la mi bouteille. Super de bonne quad dabbaye... aujourdhui 15 mai il neige Chnville, japprcie donc la chaleur de cette bire.

Im growing a deep love for Dieu du Ciel... All the beers Ive had the opportunity to try from them has been so good!
So this is a happy day!

The beer pours dark mahogny colored, clear but with a lot of yeast sediment so it looks cloudy. Very creamy, beige, head. More than two finger high at the beginning and slowly fades to a thin beige head with a huge amount of lacing on the glass.

Nose: Ohhhh... this is so good! Dark fruit (raisin, plum), cherry, red apples, rhubarb, nuts, jam, charcuterie, caramel malt and Belgian yeast.
Taste: Brown sugar, malt, fudge, toffee, brandy, plum, prune, vanilla and Belgian yeast.
Mouth: Full body. Light and smooth carbonation. Complex texture. Smooth. Sweet/dry ending. A nice bitterness.
