COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The St. Bernardus Abt 12 is the pride of our stable, the nec plus ultra of our brewery. Abbey ale brewed in the classic ’Quadrupel’ style of Belgium’s best Abbey Ales. Dark with a full, ivory-colored head. It has a fruity aroma, full of complex flavours and excels because of its long bittersweet finish with a hoppy bite. Worldwide seen as one of the best beers in the world. It’s a very balanced beer, with a full-bodied taste and a perfect equilibrium between malty, bitter, and sweet. One of the original recipes from the days of license-brewing for the Trappist monks of Westvleteren.

Bottle. Murky brown pour with a reddish tinge and a creamy tan head. Dark fruit, sweet malt, nice dankness and alcohol warmth in the aroma and taste. Well balanced and every bit as good as the hype.

HopsandBolts (41) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 22, 2014
Pours a murky brown with lots of tan head. There is yeast and bread aromas with flavours of yeast, malt, hints of dates and some spicy notes. This is an okay Belgian ale but not one I would run out and buy again soon.

Eccellente esempio di quadrupel. Si distingue dalle altre per i chiarissimi sentori di frutta secca. Da provare!

Absolutely delicious. Rich and creamy with a strong caramel aroma. Perfectly balanced, boozy and decadent. Perfect dessert beer.

Dense tan foam, steady. Hazy liquid, color of dark molasses. Carbonation medium to light. Full body. Aroma of caramel. Medium to heavy sweetness, medium bitterness. Great one.

I'm do impressed with this beer. So much going on....incredible aroma....bubbles, bubbles, bubbles. Malty, hoppy....hops good on the palate. Very easy to drink. Almost a champagne amount of bubbles. I definitely want more of this. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
