From Montreal Quebec’s Brasserie Dieu Du Ciel comes their “Rigor Mortis Abt” a Belgian Style Quadrupel. This Quad pours a deep ruby brown colour with a tan head. The aroma consists of deeply of dark fruits, brown sugar and caramel malts. The flavour is of dark fruits, brown sugar, sweet caramel malts, some hops bitterness and a mild alcohol warmth. The alcohol content comes in at a big 10.5%. This is a very well made beer and has similarities to the beer Trappist monks brew. I look forward to having more of this beer in the future.
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 January until stocks last.
