COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The absolute top quality in the hierarchy of the St. Bernardus beers. It is also the beer with the highest alcohol content (10.50 %). A dark ivory coloured beer with a high fermentation. The show piece of the brewery. Thanks to its soft and unconditionally genuine aroma, the beer can be smoothly tasted. The Abt has a very fruity flavour.

Looks just like the Prior 6, coffee-brown w. creamy head. However, the aromatics of the 6 are significantly offset by the vodka-like vapors streaming out of this one. The flavor as well, is alcohol saturated, though it certainly is warming. Full, sweet, fruity with a nice roasted malt richness, some coffeeish element. Pretty good but I liked the 6 better.

4 year old bottle, marked 01.07.15. Plums, dark fruit and raisins. Complexity is out of control. Time has smoothed out any rough edges. One of the best beers you will ever have. Damn monks are solid.

Malty, fig/plum nose. Hazy copper with perfect persistent head and Belgian lacing. Malty but not cloyingly sweet. Rich toffee, malt and dark fruit flavors completely mask any alcohol heat. Yeast flavors subtle but in perfect compliment. Low but perfect carbonation and just enough hop bitterness for a perfect balance. On tap at Bavarian Lodge in Lisle, IL. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

fabioanselmo (161) - Vila Velha, BRAZIL - APR 16, 2014
Aroma frutado com notas de cravo. Aparência marrom caramelado. Sabor com algo de banana e especiarias. No paladar, um leve amargor. No geral, uma bela trapista, muito parecida com quadrupel. Deliciosa.

On draft at Chelsea's Kitchen. Copper red with white head that dissipates quickly, but leaves nice lacing. Smells of cereal, yeast and a little caramel. Nice, bold brew that finishes dry. Wouldn't have guessed 10% abv. Highly endorse.

veceo (229) - CROATIA - APR 14, 2014
Cloudy brown/orange color, average sized tan head. Full body, soft to average carbonation. Aroma is very fruity (dark fruits, maybe cherries), also caramel malts, raisins. It’s sweet but far from too sweet. Just the right amount of sweetness actually. Excellent beer.

davidtjm (155) - Berlin, GERMANY - APR 14, 2014
Dark pour with a huge head, aroma is malty, banana, candied fruits, sweetness. Taste is liquorice, roast malt, apricots and some sweetness, with alcohol notes towards the end and a smooth finish. Very nice

Serapac (15) - CZECH REPUBLIC - APR 14, 2014
Deep brown with beige head. Bitter-sweet promising aroma. Complex taste, raisins, dried apricots, cinnamon, banana. The high abv quite well disguised. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Campy877 (153) - Michigan, USA - APR 12, 2014
Bottle poured into a 16 oz snifter. A dark hazy copper with a minimal head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of malt and fruit punch. Sweet malt flavor with a smooth alcohol finish of a typical Trippel. Quite pleasant! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hazy deep brown color, large and lasting head. Very fruity aroma, dark and dried fruits, toffee, roasted sugars and malts. Balanced taste between sweetness and little bit of sourness and bitterness. Great and impressive Abt Quadrupel style beer.

Bottle. Pours brown with off white head. Nose and flavor is brown sugar, pear and alcohol. Delicious.
