COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The St. Bernardus Abt 12 is the pride of our stable, the nec plus ultra of our brewery. Abbey ale brewed in the classic ’Quadrupel’ style of Belgium’s best Abbey Ales. Dark with a full, ivory-colored head. It has a fruity aroma, full of complex flavours and excels because of its long bittersweet finish with a hoppy bite. Worldwide seen as one of the best beers in the world. It’s a very balanced beer, with a full-bodied taste and a perfect equilibrium between malty, bitter, and sweet. One of the original recipes from the days of license-brewing for the Trappist monks of Westvleteren.

Très forte mais excellente, mon ABT12/Quadrupel favorite, très liquoreuse sans pour autant que l'alcool à la fin ensevelisse les arômes de fruits, de malt et de levures persistantes. Un amertume dosée juste comme il faut comme savent le faire les belges avec ce style de bière, à essayer avant de mourir.

UPDATED: NOV 10, 2018 Bouteille datée d'environ 4 ans. Robe brune ambrée assez claire avec un col de mousse onctueux et blanchâtre. Arômes de petits fruits séchés, caramel, malt un peu grillé, sucre d'orge , miel brun, alcool, levures. En bouche, malt caramélisé et beaucoup de baies, figue, raisin, poire, citron. Saveurs qui deviennent ensuite plus sucrées avec flaveurs de pain frais, un peu d'herbes et zeste d'orange, du pamplemousse même. Sensation de matières grillées en arrière-plan. Texture huileuse et un peu liquoreuse, corps rond. Très bien mais je me dois d'essayer un version plus fraîche.

UPDATED: NOV 4, 2018 Bottle at home. Pours hazy dark copper with big off-white head. Aroma of dark dried fruits, caramel, brown sugar, a lot of vinous notes. Tastes sweet with balancing bitterness. Medium bodied, highly carbonated, finishes a bit sweet.

CikyFonsz (265) - Bydgoszcz, POLAND - NOV 2, 2018
UPDATED: NOV 6, 2018 2.11.18, kran w bydgoskiej Kraftodajni Sporo czerwonych owoców, porzeczki, czerwonych winogronon, może rodzynek. Smak bardziej złożony od aromatu. Dość słodko, lekko kwaśno. Delikatne rozgrzewanie od alkoholu. Stosunkowo niskie nasycenie, co jest dość nietypowe dla piw belgijskich, ale mi odpowiada. Ciekawe, złożone.

UPDATED: OCT 27, 2018 Belgium. Pours dark amber with pretty big off white head. Good amount of carbonation. Scent of raisins, malt, booze. Taste is dried fruit, caramel, raisin. Good but not as good as Westvleteren.

humpah (669) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - OCT 19, 2018
Bottle from Beergium, pouring dark brown color. Aroma of dark fruits, sweetness, syrup, malts, alcohol, raisins, yeast and caramel. Full body, rich complex taste, creamy feeling with some bitterness, but not really much. One of the great sweet Belgian quads.

UPDATED: OCT 18, 2018 W aromacie niestety mocno wyczuwalny alkohol. W smaku to samo, poza tym cukierkowo, jakieś rodzynki. Mimo wszystko jest spoko.

Aromas of dried fruits, caramel, spices and some earthy notes. Brown with a tan head. Medium + sweet and medium bitter. Medium + body with average to lively carbonation. Overall a very nice experience. Complex and rich in a very plesant way.
