COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Saint Amatus, also called St. Aimé, was a Benedictine monk.

He took the defense of the lesser man who was exploited by the Merovingian king Thierry III.

In Belgium, Oostvleteren is the only parish to patron St Amatus as saint.

Struise started brewing at Deca in Vleteren early 2006, we ankered ourselves by starting the development of our own micro brewery in Oostvleteren during 2009. With this adventure being on the rails, we thought the making of Saint Amatus 12 was as evident as can be.

The terrific artwork was brought by our narcissistic artist Carlo Grootaert.

Saint Amatus has aged on Woodford Reserve barrels from Labrot & Graham, Kentucky USA. Some batches were instead aged on Pappy Van Winkle whiskey barrels, both varieties are valid for this entry.

R_Pothuizen (18) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - SEP 19, 2011
A hazy dark red/Brown beer with a nice crème coulered beer. Rough structured foam, drops slowly in. Aroma: Laulier, liquorice, spicy, malt, sweety and saisins The basic taste (scale from 1 to 5): sweet:2, sour:1, bitter:1. The aftertaste: sweet:2, sour:3, bitter:2. The laulier and the liquorice overruled in the end, als a taste from taninn. Not my kind of beer, but acceptable. Nice label

mike_77 (3272) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 15, 2011
Cloudy brown colour. Very thick, oliy texture. Flavour is quite complex with some rich, dark fruits that leave a sticky sweetness on the lips. The finish is a touch more vinous with a hint of warming alcohol.

Pours dark dark brown with high head, Aromas of dark fruits ,fudge and oranges. I also sense chocolate. Palate is round, lovely and sweet. A bit watery. Alcohol is present but not to much. Taste of orange, brown sugar, some chocolate and hint of oak.

Kristall-König (2257) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - SEP 13, 2011
Geruch dunkelmalzig, röstig, gleichwohl auch gewürzig und likörhaft. Antrunk süß, dicht malzig, alsbald ins Gewürzige umschlagend und dabei recht flüssig gleitend. Im Mittel schokoladig, alkoholisch. Pralinenartig und likörbehaftet abgleitend. Ein sehr dichtes und komplexes Bier. Die Gewürze wirken sehr schön und auch die Süffigkeit ist prima. Einzig im Abgang zeigt das Bier durch die dominante Alkoholnote eine gewisse Schwäche. Ansonsten ein gutes Bier.Test vom 12.11.2010, Gebinde: Glasflasche

Bottle (vintage 2011) from SB Majorna cons 2011-09-11 Göteborg AR: coddey and roasted malt - simple as that AP: hazy brown, high fizzy big bubbly creme caramel colored head F: vinos, white sugary, plums, rassins, dadels, warming, medium high bitterness, medium carbonation would have gain on some more storaged but not that much...
