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.

Hazy brown with a fizzy white head. Raisin, brown sugar, and Belgian yeast aroma and taste with some floral and molasses notes. Decent.

Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - OCT 23, 2009
THOUGHTS: Very Belgian and very nice. It was like a dubbel on steroids. Hid alcohol fairly well for the ABV, but could benefit from more aging. Really tasty. This was great. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a medium to dark brown with slight orange highlights and a very small, off-white head that mostly diminished and left fair lacing. The aroma was moderate caramel malt and candy sugar; light to moderate doughy yeast; along with raisin, apple, red wine, brown sugar and alcohol. The initial flavor was sweet; while the finish was rather sweet, acidic and ever so slightly bitter. There was caramel, candy sugar, prune, raisin, yeast, more prune, brown sugar and spices. The medium body was a little oily and then dry with rather fizzy carbonation and a lightly astringent and moderately alcoholic finish.

MOboy (504) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - OCT 23, 2009
This cola brown beauty shows absolutely no evidence of its 10.5 percent abv. The nose is rather weak with brown sugar and chocolate. Slight banana and dark fruit with a hint of chocolate. This is an extremely well made beer with little complexity.

Jblauvs (1357) - Chester, Vermont, USA - OCT 20, 2009
Fantastic Dark brown pour. Aroma is sweet, dried fruit, overripe banana, some breadiness, yeast and a bit of booze. Flavor is intense raisin bread soaked in dark candi and sweet booze. Id like to put one down for another year or so and see if it softens, but this is very tastey. Warms as it goes down. Great sipper by DDC

rane (1052) - Nibe, DENMARK - OCT 20, 2009
Bottle. Wonderful beer, storms into my top 10. Im quite surprised about the relative low ratings. Red brown with medium pale brown head. Aroma sweetm drued fruits, dates, figs, after a while more and more licorice. Taste much the same sweet malt, dates, figs, and again licorice after a while. A little hopp bitterness and a very long lasting finish. I doubt I would be able to tell this beer apart from Rochefort or Westvleterns quads in a blindtasting. I had a Chimay Bleu in the weekend and this one is so much better.

TeamTrappist (832) - jericho, New York, USA - OCT 18, 2009
Bottle. Poured a rich mahogany. Nose is candied sugar and a bit of alcohol. Really nice carbed mouthful. Nice candied sugars. Very drinkable. Nice take on the style just a slight hint of the alcohol but I really like this one

Plovmand (8016) - Helsinge, DENMARK - OCT 17, 2009
Bottle. Amber brown body with a thick creamy off white head. Very fruity aroma with notes of yeast, ripe fruit, caramel, raisins and dark molasses. Flavour is spicy, malty and very fruity. Notes of raisins, light alcohol, yeast, dark sugar and chocolate. Lots of things going on. A lovely Abt!

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - OCT 16, 2009
Bottle purchased at Buckeye Beer Engine about....oh.... a long time ago. The pour is a nice dark hazy brown with a thin cream head. Aroma is a slightly spicy brown sugar scent, loads of malt and none of that banana-y yeast scent of the traditional Belgian quads. The flavor is pretty damn rich, lots of soft chocolate notes, nothing too overdone, and all this sweet caramelized sugar flavor to it, without a hint of burnt notes or anything to spoil it.

dchmela (3040) - Orlando, Florida, USA - OCT 15, 2009
341ml bottle. Nice brown pour with a thin white head. Sweet malt, dark fruit, some citrus and, dare I say, I caught a hint of vanilla in the the aroma. Big body, sweet malt, dark fruit, brown sugar, some citrus and an alcohol bite on the end. Really good brew.
