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.

SB beställning flaska. Fin lagring ljusbrunt skum. Svart svart brun. Fikon kaffe annan frukt i aromen. Väl dold sprit. Mustig och utsökt komplex smakbild. Lite spritig men ändå mild. Bäst av de fyra Bernardus.

UPDATED: DEC 29, 2017 Mousse très effervescente et peu persistante. Belle robe brun foncé, acajou. Au nez, caramel, figue, prune. En bouche, c'est sucré mais bien équilibré. Moins exubérante que sa cousine de Rochefort, ce qui n'est pas plus mal à mon goût. Une belle porte d'entrée pour découvrir les bières brunes d'exception.

Fles thuis gedronken met Roelzie. Het is een donkerbruin helder bier met een stevig wit schuim. Het heeft weinig aroma, wat fruitig en hoppig. Smaak van karamel en donker fruit. De nasmaak is licht bitter.
