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 Belgiums 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. Its 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.

Barwa bordowa, piana średnia. Aromat karmelowy, figi, rodzynki, śliwki, daktyle. W smaku mega zbudowane. Są rodzynki, śliwki, wiśnie, cukier kandyzowany, czekolada i jakby rum. Alko nie wyczuwalne. Mega pifko.

With a dark crisp taste and lingering after taste this cousin of the Westie is half the price but has all the flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

19Michi38 (160) - Cracow, POLAND - MAY 23, 2017
Ciemno-bordowe, nieprzejrzyste. Piana biała, drobna, obfita, zostaje na tafli, lacingu brak. W aromacie figi, rodzynki, trochę ciemnych owocw, karmel. W smaku już owoce mocniejsze, na początku kwaśno, potem wchodzą figi z rodzynkami, karmel w tle. Jest mniej wyraźnie, niż sugerował to zapach. Wysycenie wysokie, goryczka niska, posmak suszonych fig i rodzynek.

matoss (69) - Warszawa Ursus, POLAND - MAY 21, 2017
Kolor ciemny, lekka piana, wyrzucenie dość spore. W zapachu nuty winne, wiśnie i trochę karmelu. Smak mocno owocowy, rodzynki, wiśnie, troche karmelu, drewna, alkohol ukryty. Super piwo.

A delicious beer! Fruity aroma, deep brown color with a creamy head, perfectly balanced flavour with an aftertaste that forces you to savor each mouthful and anticipate the next. When you want to indulge...this is what you reach for. Supposedly, it's based on one of the oldest recipes used by Trappist monks, so no surprise that for this fan of Trappist ales this one ranks among the best! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
