Brasserie Dieu Du Ciel Rigor Mortis ABT

What the brewers say

“Strong brown ale inspired by Belgian Trappist beers. Very little bitterness, this beer has intense malty and sweet flavors, mixed with the taste of chocolate and caramel. It presents complex red fruit and spice flavors.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Nice nuanced aroma. Rich malt sweetness with notes of caramel and white bread and strong dark fruit character (prune, raisin, plum, dark cherry). Some nice spicy earthy notes: black pepper, slight bell pepper, a hint of alcohol warmth on the nose.”

Flavor: “Lots of rich, sweet, robust malt flavors with decent Belgian candi sugar lending notes of caramel and toffee. Dark fruit esters (mostly plum, cherry, raisin, and date) with just a hint of bitterness for balance. A moderately sweet finish. Moderate carbonation and a touch of alcohol warming. Good hops flavor with earthy and spicy notes. Nice warmth but stays sweet.”

Overall: “Lots of complexity, both in malt and fruit. A touch sweeter than the best in the style, but overall extremely tasty, with nice fruit, and very complex.”
