On tap in Budapest. Fig and sweet cinnamon bread. Light caramel sugary sticky molasses very light and mischievious because I know it?s 10%. Creamy finish sweet and light crisp snap. Really nice quad kinda light and friendly, but that should mean that it?s bomb as fuck, right?

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
While I’ve had their Christmas Ale, this is my first ever try of their ABT 12. My expectations were fairly high, and I don’t think they were quite met. It looks the part, with its muddy brown body, with reddish hi-lights in the glass.
The nose however is a letdown, with a hint of bready malts, and some dark fruit peels.
The palate is surprisingly on the tingly crisp side, and not velvety smooth like I was expecting. Still interesting though.
The tastes are concentrated more on the red fruit peels, and grapes side of the fence. There is a bit of the bready malts in the mix, but they are very subdued from what I was expecting.
This isn’t punching in the same weight class as Westvleteren 12 and Rochefort 10, but once you get your mind wrapped around that, it’s a pretty decent beer. Might fall into the one-time enjoyment category however, as I doubt I’d reach for it again when beer shopping.

Birra color mogano con riflessi ramati, schiuma compatta color crema. Al naso una complessità di sentori che vanno dalla nocciola, all'uvetta, fino al cioccolato e alla prugna. In bocca è un tripudio di bosco e banana matura, dolce, mai stucchevole sprigiona il suo calore già al primo sorso. Un corpo non ingombrante ed una discreta carbonazione fanno il resto. Grande bevuta.

Pretty much the perfect Belgian. Sweet Belgian taste, just enough malt, although a relatively high ABV, the alcohol is anything but overpowering.

Bottle poured into original glass. Very dark brown with a bit of light brown foam. Lots of lacing. Caramel, raisin and plum aroma. Sweet taste with a kick from the alcohol. Really great beer!

It is dark amber in color with ruby highlights. The initials aromas of malt and dark fruits. There are also aromas of grass and some yeast. It has a vinous flavor with dark fruits, grass, floral elements, yeast, and bready malts, It is moderate as a body, with a dry finish and pleasant alcohol warming. It is moderate high in carbonation.
