4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Presentation: 330mL brown bottle, served in an oversized wine glass.
Appearance: It has a very dark brown color and develops a tan, two finger head. It has good retention, so it stays for a while and leaves some nice lacing.
Smell: The sweet malty smell is right up front with a strong alcohol note in the background.
Taste: Just as with the nose, there’s a very dominant malt sweetness at the front, with some ripe fruit notes and a warming alcohol feel throughout that wraps things up very nicely.
Mouthfeel: It’s full bodied, with average carbonation. Very smooth and creamy, it just feels balanced.
Overall: An incredible beer. This is a must-have.

330cc bottle. Smells caramel, cocoa and hop. The taste is like the nose also fruity. Very "trappist" like. A fantastic beer with a very soft and friendly alcohol . It is not the flavor explosion felt with a Westvleteren XII or even a Rocheford 10 but outstanding drink also!

Very nice Belgian quad. Nice dark color with some sweetness from the fruit and yeast. Nice and smooth for a quad. Finishes subtlety on the palate, fades after a minute or so.

330 mL bottle. Pours deep walnut with a thick pale head. Big, dark fruity nose, applesauce, fig, toasted dark bread. Some leathery, earthy, spicy hop presence. Cocoa and yeasty esters. Full bodied with high carbonation. Light malty sweetness balanced with gentle hopping and a hint of alcohol. Creamy texture, with great length. Exceptional.

St. Bernardus 12 is a great alternative to Westvleteren 12, and much more available. I couldn't really even notice difference in taste. Great beer!

Brown coloured beer. Taste is real full and a perfect addition to the bernardus familie. Quite complex and interesting taste pallet. Good after taste!
