Faroese: Sct. Brigid Abbey Ale er bryggjað av besta føroyska vatni, 8 sløgum av bygg- og hveitimalti, Kryddað við góðari humlu og natúrkrýddum. Sct. Brigid Abbey er gerað við tveimum ymiskum gerum, ið gevur ein samansettan kryddaðan smakk. Bryggjað við íblástri úr gomlu uppruna reseptum úr gamla gerkjallaranum á Føroya Bjór frá 1888. Sct Brigid Abbey er í stíl við belgiskar klosturbjór.

Danish: Sct Brigid Abbey Ale er en mørk overgæret ale med masser af fylde. 8 malt typer er anvendt, den er gæret med to forskellige overgær. Der er ikke tale om en Stout, men en mild bitterhed i Abbey Ale der kan sammenlignes med belgisk klosterøl. Her med inspiration fra den gamle gærkælder hos Föroya Bjór fra 1888.

English: A Belgian style abbey ale brewed with pure Faroese spring water, two types of yeast, 8 types of barley and wheat malts along with the finest quality hops and spices.

yngwie (14703) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 29, 2012
Bottle, at RBNAG-11. A quite dark one, reddish brown in color, and topped by a smell, dense, off-white head. Prunes, sugar and some maltyness in the aroma. The flavor has dried fruits, prunes, maltyness and a touch of bittering hops. Full-bodied and pleasantly carbonated. Some bitterness in the swallow. A quite pleasant beer, but quite far from my idea of an abbey beer. 111015

Small brown body. Nearly opaque black body is translucent deep dark red. Earthy mealy papery aroma with fruity licorice notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dryish earthy soy sauce aftertaste with mineraly notes. Decent, but boring. (Bottle shared at RBNAG-11.)
