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.

thanx to i believe belgbeergeek for this one, on BBF 12 smells little sourness, taste more like a so called ’ vlaams oud bruin’ ale ( likes of rodenbach, aardmonnik, ...) with some sweetness ( sugar, honey) to it. not sure how this is a quad...

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.

Pours dark brown with a red hue, thin beige head. Smell of dark fruits, prunes, some toast, dark malts, very sinful and inviting. Heavy sweet, dark and dried fruits, plum, toast, hints of chocolate, caramel, alot of complexity, moderate bitter, cherry stone tail. A very nice beer!

AleRider78 (1133) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 3, 2017
Pours a small amount of bubbly head but goes away quickly. Leaves very little lace. Has a dark coppery appearance and is fairly cloudy. Aromas of malted barley, toffee and very mild hops. Flavours are mostly yeasty with barley, malts and light earthy hops. Very well spiced with a touch of sweetness (sugar in ingredients). Some notes of toffee as well and toasty. Alcohol is just slightly apparent, amazing considering the 10.5% abv for a 341ml bottle. Nice warming sensation and has a drying mouthfeel. Lively carbonation. Full bodied. Somewhat bitter in the finish with spices. Awesome.

I received this as a gift. It’s a big, bold flavor, with a great body. It’s not my all time favorite, but really nice.

Pours a reddish brown color with a canvas colored head. Notes of candi sugar, figs, milk chocolate, and spice. Feels a bit thin for the style.

Data butelkowania: 30.11.2016
Kolor: Miedziany z czerwonymi refleksami. Mocne zamglenie na całej powierzchni szkła.
Piana: Żółta praktycznie o każdej możliwej strukturze. Najpierw drobna, potem pęka do dużych i średnich baniek, aby na koniec zredukować się do milimetrowej obrączki. Całkiem okazałe wzorki na szkle.
Zapach: Aromat jest mało intensywny. Trzeba się bardzo natrudzić, żeby w ogóle cokolwiek tutaj wywąchać. Górują w nim słody. Mało wyraźne nuty korzenne pomieszane z wysoką przyprawowością. Jest też sporo belgijskich drożdży. Mało owocowych akcentów, praktycznie w ogóle. Delikatny karmel w tle.
Smak: W smaku solidnie przyprawowe i korzenne na zmianę. Mamy tutaj sporo nut goździków, gałki muszkatowej i pieprzu. Delikatny karmel miesza się z akcentami ziemistymi i nutami ciemnego chleba. Piwo jest solidnie gorzkie, co tak na prawdę jest nowością jak dla mnie w tym stylu. Opisanych na etykiecie nut czekoladowych nie odnajduje tutaj wcale. Dostrzegam za to nieźle ułożony alkohol. Piwo jest bardzo oryginalne jak na swój styl, zupełnie niespotykane jak do tej pory. Teksturę ma całkiem fajną, chociaż daleką od oleistego trunku. Czy mi smakuje? Trudno to określić...Raz tak, raz nie.
Wysycenie: Średnie, a nawet wysokie.
Podsumowanie:
Jeden z najbardziej oryginalnych i kontrowersyjnych Quadów jakie piłem. Naszprycowany nutami przyprawowymi (goździki, pieprz, gałka muszkatołowa). Mocno korzenny, ziemisty i tylko z lekkim przełamaniem karmelowym. Wspaniale ukryty alkohol. Brakuje mi w nim nut owocowych i odrobiny więcej słodyczy. Dla poszukiwaczy ciekawych wersji tego stylu może być nie lada gadką :)

Red berries and a little spice in the smell. Yeast, some alcohol, red berries and a little sweet taste. Not so good bitterness that fills the upper part of the mouth for a long time. Not a good beer. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.
