Dallas has few diversions other than eating, drinking and shopping.....and shopping does not interest us.
So we spend our time hopping from restaurant to restaurant and to every pub that we can find in search of the perfect meal and the perfect beer.

We randomly review restaurants and bars, dishes and beers at whim and give our brutally honest opinions of our findings. And while we concentrate on Dallas, we travel far and wide to sample cuisine from all regions of the country and beyond.

Beer Review - Rigor Mortis

Brasserie Dieu du Ciel Rigor Mortis ABY - 10.5% ABV

Someone pointed out to recently that I had not done a beer review in quite some time.  "Bull pucky"
was my response.  Yeah, they were right, it has been several months since I reviewed any one beer, so I will hit you with a barrage of reviews over the next several days.  My apologies.

Let's begin with this liver pickler from Canada that I have been aging for a year or so.  Dieu du Ciel is a microbrewery/brewpub located in Montreal which produce a plethora of dandy original beers of which I have been lucky enough to try several and have enjoyed them all.  Rigor Mortis is a brown ale brewed in the style of a trappist quadrupel.  The nose is all malts with a bit of yeasty breadiness in the background.  The ethers from the alcohol are quite evident.  And malty is what you will taste, along with chocolate and caramel.  There is little evidence of hops (which is quite typical of a Belgian quad) but there is a tinge of background sourness.  The beer will go down smooth as there is very little carbonation so be careful.  Delightful, but I would highly recommend aging it for a least 6 months.
