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.

Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 2, 2009
Pros: Really nice look. Nice layer of yeast at the bottom of the bottle. Fully formed head lasts well. Flavor is terrifically extracted, loaded with flavor. Rich all around, it even finishes well. Notes of chocolate, pit fruit and raisin. Excellent mouth feel. Well hidden alcohol.

Cons: Aroma is muted, but this could be due to the lack of bottle age.

A beautiful bottling of ale, no doubt about it. One I plan on aging extendedly. This is one of the best examples of the style to come out of North America.

Iced tea brown with a thin head and a dark fruit nose. Well-carbonated and somewhat malty with dark fruit, brown sugar sweetness and some warming in the finish.

UPDATED: DEC 15, 2017 Donkerbruin bier met rode schijn. Off-white schuimkraag die redelijk snel inzakt tot fijn laagje. Caramel, donker fruit, blauwe bessen, kandij. Mild-bittere afdronk, licht warmend. Zeer goeie quadrupel.

Amen Dieu du Ciel, Amen et ENFIN une brune....très brune trop brune? Jamais trop brune! Très sucrée....trop sucrée? Jamais trop sucrée!! Très épicée...trop épicée? Non, jamais! Car vous savez brasser! Du caramel, du malt, du pain aux bananes épicé plein de fruit confits, du grain, du foin, de la terre, des dattes, des noix....holalala, tant de merveilles a gouter! Il suffirait d'un peu plus de mordant et carbonisation et cette bière serait ma nouvelle religion. Amen, man.

Solid Abt, but still prefer the Belgian ones. Medium carbonation. Some bitterness, esters, yeasty fruit.

Good brew. It has a bright front end. The finish is smooth, but lacks the deep flavor notes of a top tier quadruple like St. Bernardus or Rochefort. Overall a great beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

3.5
Strykzone (7723) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUL 31, 2017
Bottle. Dark brown opaque with just a little beige foam. An aroma of dark fruit add rich malts. The flavor brings even more dark fruit. Dates and raisins. Alcohol is also tasted and it comes close to over powering the other flavors.

3.9
BlazerT (1282) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - JUL 26, 2017
Bottle. Sensoric. Brownish, moderately hazy with small, light brown head. Poor head retention and lacing. Aroma is nice and smooth, caramel, berries, raisins, tired fruits, plums, nice peppery notes with Belgian yeasty character. In overall nice, balanced, not so annoying.
