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.

patrick767 (3799) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - OCT 10, 2011
tap at Lord Hobo in Cambridge - Pours hazy, very dark amber with a malty, alcohol aroma. The flavor is sweet malt and chocolate. Chocolate? In a quad? It’s unusual but good. There’s a touch of bitterness in the finish.

Gary (1732) - Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2011
(Bottled, 2010 Vintage) Really not that much to dissect. Not a rendition of a QuadAbt . iTS more like a hombrew atempt at Rocheort 10.

Mad_Ferret (822) - SWEDEN - OCT 7, 2011
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.
