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.

UPDATED: OCT 8, 2011 Bottle. Dark muddy slight reddish brown with a big small bubbly dense grayish brown head. Aroma is sweet malty with burnt sugars and some dried fruits with hops. Taste is sweet with burnt toffee and caramel, licorice plus some fruit. Supergood mouthfeel that is slight heavy carbonated at a the start but then turns into a chocolaty, cold coffee with sugar. This is a big sweet classy beer.

Lite smådiskret doft, men en fantastisk fyllig smak av kola, malt, choklad och nötter. Eftersmaken är kladdig och lämnar en tydlig lakritston, Lite Pannepot-varning :)

marcus (7819) - Sacramento, California, USA - OCT 1, 2011
On tap at The Trappist. Pours dark brown with a modest tan head and a chocolate and plum aroma. There is an intense toasty dark malt flavor with some plum, a little Candi sugar and an oaky finish.

IMO better than it’s rating here. Pours a very murky medium brown with a fairly big light tan head (not as big as e.g. Rochefort 10) with minimum lacing. Aroma is very rich - excellent - with slightly roasty and nutty malt, yeast, spices (lots of them), dried prunes. Great stuff. Taste is equally rich if not as great as the aroma. Starts off a bit slow with a bit of bready malt and yeast, then builds up with alcohol, syrup and brown sugar, before a slightly hoppy finish. The bitterness is very balanced, and the sugar lasts through the finish. Palate is creamy and fairly rich, and very nice.

On draft. It pours a nice dark ruby color with a creamy khaki head. The aroma has some sweet hard candy and richer dark fruits. The flavor is toasty and alcoholic with some sweet dark fruit. Dates, plums, light notes of cherry. It has a thick body. I was hoping for more sweet fruity/yeasy complexity. But still a very good and refined quad.

Tmoney99 (12233) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 29, 2011
Bottle. Poured a dark brown color with an average creamy off-white head that mostly lasted and produced fair lacing. Heavy complex cherry wood, chocolate and fruity aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Good complex sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Good complex brew.

Vintage 2010.Sweet smell and a finish of alcohol. Nice dark apparance, darker then other quad i’ve tried. The thaste is sweet, but with a little twist on the end. Great beer!
