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.

Bottle shared by BA Alcstradamas! Dark amber pour, medium carbonation and a nice aroma of brown sugar and raisins. Flavor was nice sweet figs, plums, a little more brown sugar/malt and a little bit of slight oxidation on the aftertaste. Decent, I wonder how this would have been fresh.

Draft at Capone’s with James and Andrew. Pours a nice amber red with no head. Flavor is of musty dried fruit. Very highly carbonated. Finishes a little hot but overall not bad for a quad.

jkwood04 (5281) - Connecticut, USA - NOV 20, 2011
On tap in a snifter. Pours ruby/brown with a thick, lacy, tan head. Aroma of spicy yeast, caramel, some light chocolate, floral hops, and some vanilla/bourbon. The bourbon could be stronger, as it only comes through in the finish. Smooth, almost thick texture. A really good beer.

On tap at Capone’s. Pours a mahogany brown color with a tan head. Aroma of molasses, caramel, plums, vanilla, and Belgian yeast. Flavor is amazing-vanilla, plum, molasses, Belgian yeast and as the beer warms-a solid bourbon aroma and flavor. Great beer!
