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.

Draft pour at churchkey. Pours a darker brown with a beige head of foam. The aroma has wood, dark fruit, berries, vanilla, toffee. Taste has subtle sweetness with a bit of bread and fruit. Dries out a bit. Bigger body and moderate carbonation.

procraste (96) - FRANCE - JAN 5, 2015
robe noire très légèrement délavée. Pas de mousse du tout. Nez énergique, note de café amer avec une petite pointe cidrée. En bouche s’entremêlent le café et l’orange confite. Pas trop "épaisse". Très sympathique et bien équilibrée.

barbillon (54) - Pesaro, ITALY - DEC 31, 2014
Una meraviglia!! Bellissimo color marrone scuro. Aroma forte con ricca presenza di frutta secca...tasso alcolico "importante" 10,5% ma che non si sente minimamente, infatti si sorseggia facilmente in bocca...è una birra che a parere mio può facilmente essere invecchiata per evolvere ulteriormente!! Per alcuni versi assomiglia ad una Rochefort 10 con il suo sapore al palato dolce...forse troppo leggera per l’alcol presente! livello di birra nel complesso alto....grazie struise!!
