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.

My first quad, and I fear I could be spoiled. Aromas are yeast, brown sugar, dried fruits, alcohol. Appearance is a dark ruby reddish brown with a nice smoky tan head and beautiful lacing. The flavor and palate are so complex I fear I can’t do them justice. My favorite brew to date.

This is a fantastic beer. Fantastic on the palate and gets better as it goes down.

Dark, full color, strong flavor. Careful when uncorking the bottle, the beer has a tendency to overflow.

Most amazing beer I’ve ever had the pleasure to drink. On Tap @ Canal Street Pub, and in bottles at my house :) Very smooth everything. Hides the 10% ABV extremely well. Anyone who wants to argue USA Vs Belgium Beer need to look no further then this beer.

chocolatey and very malty, very dark brown color, caramel colored head, heavy sweetness, full body, creamy, a sweet finish, alcohol Overall: This beer is so rich its like eating a chocolate bar! While thick and creamy isn’t my personal favorite way to have my beer, this really is a must try for all beer lovers.

A wonderfully complex balance of spices, ripe fruit, & sweet malt. The gold standard of Belgium quads, and one of the world’s best beers period. http://www.billysbeerblog.com/2010/02/m

Bottle, dark brown black pour into belgian tulip glass. Nice toffee flavor mixed with hints of rum-like fruit, layered with flavor. This beer is not too heavy and opened up nicely.
