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.

Pmarkon65 (552) - - OCT 13, 2022
UPDATED: OCT 13, 2022 Bevuta in bottiglia. Bel colore ambrato scuro. Schiuma persistente. Molto corposa e ben equilibrata. Molto buona.

ReuvenSmienk (578) - Houten, NETHERLANDS - OCT 2, 2022
UPDATED: OCT 2, 2022 Donkerbruin helder bier met een licht bruine schuimkraag met fijne tot gemiddelde structuur. Geuren zijn van gedroogd rood fruit, vijgen maar ook licht banaan. Smaak is combineert op een mooie manier het fruitige van de gist met de mouten en een licht bittere afdronk. Zit nog net een scherp randje aan van de alcohol.

AbbeyRoade (935) - Missouri, USA - SEP 27, 2022
UPDATED: SEP 27, 2022 Somehow this one was really lacking in flavor. Not boozy, not sharp or yeasty or wheaty, really just bland. Not sure what happened here.

Pyobon (2474) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 1, 2022
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2022 (Bottle) Pours clear deep brown with red highlights and big pale caramel head. Lovely complex aroma with interesting yeasty notes, dark berries, dried fruit, port. Full bodied, smooth with lovely prickly carbonation. Great taste too. Complex and rich and so well balanced. There’s some initial fruity tartness which quickly gives way to toffee sweetness which is slowly and steadily joined by a nice bitterness, for a long complex finish. There’s a lot more going on. There’s banana and ester notes in the mid palate. There’s a port-like booziness in the finish. Excellent.

SampleExports56 (430) - Kwidzyn, POLAND - AUG 22, 2022
UPDATED: AUG 22, 2022 Wygląd: kolor ciemnobrunatny, nieduża piana szybko zanikająca. Zapach: kolendra, suszone owoce karmel, estry Smak: goryczka dość spora, lekka słodycz, suszone owoce, ciasto, goździki, kolendra. Alkoholu sporo. Podobne w tonie do Delirium Nocturnum. Mi nie podeszło.

DWestrick (1992) - Ft Wayne, Indiana, USA - AUG 21, 2022
UPDATED: AUG 21, 2022 bottle. Finally got my hands on one of these amazing beers. So intense - the color, the flavor - the full bodied, damn fine Quad. I love it!

ruffdestroyerwu (35) - Novosibirsk, RUSSIA - AUG 9, 2022
UPDATED: AUG 9, 2022 Сильно - Мощно. Полнотелый, ароматный, яркий и так далее и всё в таком духе. Когда слышишь бельгийский крпекий тёмный эль, то это именно он!

chinhaez (269) - Ouray CO, Colorado, USA - AUG 5, 2022
UPDATED: AUG 5, 2022 Bottle. Dark brown pour with a big beige head that slowly recedes. The aroma is quite strong with dark fruits, cola, earth and some kind of umami that I can't really identify. The taste is more colas, raisins, dates, plums, earth, biter grains and biter walnuts. The palate is full and viscous--just wonderful. Finishes long and dry. Overall: Decent. What a great beer. Pairs well with some Reggiano shavings.

UPDATED: JUL 5, 2022 Świetne piwo w aromacie mega owocowe takie bardzo dojrzałe owoce. Bardzo mocno musujące. W smaku nuty karmelowe z dużą owocowością koniecznie trzeba wypić raz w życiu

3.7
MarcinG (4145) - POLAND - JUN 28, 2022
UPDATED: JUN 28, 2022 Butelka. Ciemny mahoniowy kolor. Piana w kolorze kości słoniowej, średnia, opada powoli. W zapachu i smaku ciemny słód, banany, lekkie goździki i przyprawy. Nuty suszu owocowego, daktyli i fig. Wysycenie w dolnych rejonach, słodycz w górnych. Upamiętniając wygranie ligi w futsalu
