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.

cheeta (1181) - Lang, DENMARK - NOV 22, 2009
Heavy malty and lots of spices. Huge, creamy, off-white head. Excellent lacing. Mostly lasting longevity. Cloudy, red brown body. Moderate bitter flavor, with a long finish duration. Medium to full and creamy palate.

Braudog (6623) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - NOV 21, 2009
Bottle. Pours the color of dried blood -- rich, thick and solidly crimson. The head dissipates quickly. Although the aroma on this beer is severely restrained, this drinks with a kick-in-the-pants richness rare to beer. Full of rich, dark fruit, caramel syrup, and evergreen wood chips. Brilliant.

Pours dark brown with thin tan head. Dark fruit aroma. Flavors of dark fruits and candi sugar with a little heat from the alcohol. Medium body with lively carbonation. Pretty good.

mikalooch (224) - , New Jersey, USA - NOV 16, 2009
Bottle. Pours deep and dark brown with a nice tan head. Aroma is fig, banana, vanilla, and alcohol. Sweet and malty, almost no hop present in the flavor. Rich in dark fruits such as plum and cherry, a bit of sweet malt, and a touch of alcohol heat towards the end. Very light and easy to drink, alcohol definitely warms as it goes down. Love it, wish it was a bit less expensive.

Bonus bottle from pwoods?. Opened at PP bottle shop. I suppose this is a Westy 12 clone. Id be curious to side by side (who wouldnt). Lots of banana in the aroma. Lightly sweet. Classic surprizing lighter body given the high OG. Lots of lasting creamy carbonation. Easy to drink. Very good.

blklab2007 (2120) - Connecticut, USA - NOV 12, 2009
bottle poured a nutty brown in color with an off white head that took a very brisk pour. aroma has plumb, raisin, light spice, brown sugar, a touch of cherry, and some faint toasted wood. mouth feel is medium level but it coats well and has an interesting softness. flavor is nice and rich, brown malt comes in, cherry, raisin, plumb, plenty of sweetness, and some alcohol kick in the finish. certainly a big one and there is plenty of sweetness.

Travlr (23971) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - NOV 12, 2009
Appearance was muddy dark with very little head and no lacing. Smell was light spice, dark fruit and alcohol. Taste was very sweet, combo of caramel and butterscotch. Really shows its strength, not really in a pleasant way. Mouthfeel was solid. Nice enough, but a bit challenging o drink because of the aggressiveness of the alcohol flavor.

lefossoyeur (612) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 10, 2009
Heavy nose of sugars, butter caramel and candy for this light brown ABT. Thick body, very sweet, lots of caramel notes and a little butterscotch. Pretty intense and a little too much of sweetness for me. Maybe aging will improve its drinkability, but for now a third of a bottle is enough for my liver... Not a bad beer! Just too straightforward sugary for me.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - NOV 10, 2009
Serving: 11.5 oz. bottle. Appearance: Slightly hazy, deep amber color with a slight, foamy, light tan head. Aroma: Powerful nose with sweet, ripe stone fruit, yeast, slight floral notes, and a bit of spice Flavor: Rich and creamy with notes of vanilla, ripe fruit, pear, plum, a bit of raisin, yeast, very light caramel, spices, and a touch of alcohol. Wow! Palate: Medium-high, very soft carbonation with a rich, almost creamy mouthfeel and a medium-long, spicy sweet finish. Overall: This is a spectacular brew that is highly recommended and a must try.

ksurkin (1021) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - NOV 7, 2009
11.5oz bottle via trade with zathrus13. thanks, Jeff! pours a beautiful, deep cherry-wood brown with a thin, creamy light khaki head. aroma is excellent with sweet dark fruit notes of black cherry, plum, fig, and red wine with hints of yeasty funk, brown sugar, and bready malts. flavor is great as well with smooth, sweet dark malts, toffee, sweetbread up front with vinous red fruits, tart cherries, and plums through the middle with cedar wood and belgian spice notes of cinnamon and clove on the finish. palate is full bodied but crisp and bubbly with pleasant alcohol warmth and a lingering, sweet, earthy finish. overall, another great brew from dieu du ciel.
