Brasserie Dieu du Ciel!
Quebec, Canada

Style: Quadrupel (Quad)

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 10.50%

Notes / 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.

Aroma of caramel. Pours cloudy brown with minimal head. Heavy sweet flavours. Full bodied with slightly sticky texture, average carbonation. Overall a nice strong beer, if a bit on the sweet side.

From the 12 ounce bottle into an oversized wine glass.

A- thin khaki-colored head that dissipates quickly leaving scattered lace above the body. Body is thick-looking and caramel-colored.

S- heavy plum and Belgian candy syrup. Caramel and burnt sugar.

T- Continued plum, huge really, with a finish that is cherry-like. There's a slight estery yeast flavor and hints of the candy syrup.

M- incredibly easy-drinking and smooth. No alcohol presence.

A great representation with big flavors but still mellow and enjoyable.

$ 5.99/11.5 oz bottle at Vintage Estates, Boardman, OH
Bottle dated 1 4 at 40 degrees into chalice
Weak aroma of malt and yeast phenolics
Head small (1 cm), light brown, fizzy, rapidly diminishing to partial 1 mm ring
Lacing none
Body medium brown, cloudy
Flavor of dates and figs, possibly some raisins as well; no hops, no alcohol, no diacetyl
Palate full, creamy, lively carbonation

Although totally lacking a head and lacing and being only medium brown, in other characteristics this resembles a quad. The alcohol, while not noticeable in the flavor, makes itself evident in the following stomach burn. Pretty weak overall, this may be a good gateway beer for someone afraid of quads.
