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.

Rask0lnikov (786) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 23, 2016
330 ml bottle. Redish-brown colour. Rose hip, rowanberries, caramel, notes of berry liqeur, slight sweetness in the aroma. Sweetness, hints of berries, oakiness, slight tartness at first. Toffee, hints of whiskey, hints of tartness, oakiness again in the end. Slightly sour to tart palate. Refined, well balanced, rather low carbonated, very good beer.

2011 vintage bottle at home. Actually enjoyed as it past its bbd at the end of august. Pours a dark copper with lacing. Smells of dark fruits and raisins. Tastes sweet grape undertones. The alcohol content is well hidden and lush. It actually tastes more like a dessert wine than a beer bit is great for it.

AleRider78 (685) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 31, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 31, 2016 Acquired via trade with Chopz. Vintage 2013. Pours a huge frothy creamy beige head and has a murky brown appearance with sediments clearly visible. Fairly excessive carbonation. Aromas of roasted barley malts, cocoa, hints of vanilla. Flavours are mostly malty, some notes of chocolate, cocoa, spices, raisins and plums. Quite a bit of sweetness but balances well with bitter notes. Slick and oily mouthfeel. Great retention. Abv is very well hidden.

Vintage 2010. Tummanruskea olut hyvin minimaalisella vaahdolla, jota jää kuitenkin pieni kerros oluen pinnalle pitkäksi aikaa. Tuoksu tumman hedelmäinen ja varsinkin luumuinen, hieman lakritsinen ja belgihiivainen. Tuoksu todella houkutteleva, kutsuu maistamaan. Maku on lakritsinen ja tumman hedelmäinen, pitkä lakritsinen ja hieman mausteinen jälkimaku. Melko täyteläinen suutuntuma, hiilihappo keventää kokonaisuutta. Pehmeä ja todella miellyttävä kokonaisuus ja omaan makuuni tällainen toimii todella mainiosti!

McDef85 (40) - ITALY - JUL 17, 2016
Conservata 6 anni prima di essere stappata. Birra di gran carattere, forte aroma alcolico, di marasche e frutta sotto spirito, forte warming in bocca, al primo abboccamento mandorla e caramello, in seguito fruttato e alcool definito ma non invadente. Corposa ma non eccessiva in bocca. Piccolissima nota astringente finale che pulisce il palato, percepibile dopo qualche secondo.
