Bottle: Unfiltered 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-coloured 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.

UPDATED: AUG 30, 2023 Cloudy dark beer with a lot of raisin flavour. It’s definitely a high quality brew but it’s just too boozy tasting for me.

chrisko82 (1976) - Warszawa, POLAND - MAY 18, 2023
UPDATED: MAY 18, 2023 Są piwa, o których można sie rozpisywać i takie o ktorych można się rozpisywać, ale za opis wystarczy też kilka słów. W tym przypadku byłoby to: 'chleb w płynie'. Piwo brunatne. Piana trwała. Opada do koronki. W aromacie wspomniane nury chlebowe, ziołowe, karmelowe. Podobnie wnsmaku. Pełnia średnia. Z wad jedna: przegazowane.
