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.

A massive impression of course. On tap it is a really great experience and the taste is massive and heavy. Lightly sweet but alcoholic.

mariuszek (937) - Gdynia, POLAND - OCT 30, 2015
Dark brown, almost clear, medium beige head. Friuty, spicy and yeasty aroma, very complex and balanced. Could be more intensive. Fruitiness in taste. Raisins, sour cherries, very balanced and drinkable. No trace of alcohol. Medium bodied, crisp, fruity aftertaste. Dangerously easy drinking. Impression of light, session beer!

Scrumpy369 (265) - Budapest, HUNGARY - NOV 1, 2015
Bottle at pater marcus. Dark brown color, with a small white head that disappears almost immediately. Nose of chocolate and toffee with a hint of alcohol. Taste begins with a strong hit of iron for me. Later on it disappears a nice, slightly sweet, malty taste appears. The warmer the beer gets, the smaller the irony hit gets, but it was a very negative first impression! The taste at first was like -3, after 5 mins the 7 I gave. Very good beer, with a horrible first expression.

From a bottle bought at the Vineyard, Belfast. Not a lot of aroma, looks fantastically thick and dark with a mild head but it has a lovely molasses-like taste (but not sweet) and it has a lingering finish. This is a really good beer.

Daar heb je die blije gozert weer! Erg sterk bakkie maar de fruitige en gebrande zoete smaken met vleugje mout maken t toch een fijn ding. Backlog from 2015/02/19.

Rhombic (87) - SPAIN - DEC 12, 2015
Pours dark brown under a pale tan head. Aromas are fruity, crisp, a bit of tomato jam, raspberries. The flavour is malty, slightly dry, fruity, dried fruits (raisins), yeasty, spicy.... just a hint of wood. Oily and full body, lingering finish.
