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.

Аромат сильный, богатый. Ощущаются темные фрукты. Пиво не сильно пенится, пена с крупными пузырями, четко остается на стенках бокала. Вкус сложный,богатый, не присуще Квадрюпелю. Темные фрукты,карамель,хмель оттенок меда. Послевкусие долгое, очень мягкое. Присутствует кислинка. Пиво шикарное, что говорить. Но если сравнивать с его старшим братом Вествлетерен ,то младший братец получает хорошо пенделя по башке.

Totális technológiai csőd, az alkoholtól egyszerűen semmit nem érezni, max az negédes gejlt.

UPDATED: JAN 11, 2018 In aroma bit malty. I can sense dried fruits, carmel and some spices. Dark amber color with massive beige head. Beer has quite clear consistency. In taste bit malty and bit sweet - quite similar as in the aroma. Later comes flavors as dried fruits and carmel, slight bitterness and roasted bread. Full bodied with medium carbonation. Alcohol is well hidden. Beer is very drinkable for it's strengh however that particular bottle was aged for over 4 years. All in all very good beer. Definitely deserves top 50 in it's style.

Very good abbey strong beer, almost the same league as Rochefort and Westvleteren, but maybe not as exclusive. But this is misleading anyway, this beer is among the best that Belgium has to offer.

Zware jongen, maar wel toegankelijk. Donker maar genoeg lichtpuntjes om een goede score toe te kennen ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Color marrón muy oscuro. Espuma moderada que desaparece. Carbonatación baja. Aroma potente aviejado. Gusto dulzón a pasas, caramelo, regaliz?, especias. Mucho cuerpo. El alcohol (10%) esta bastante bien escondido aunque se nota un poco. retrogusto dulce-amargo agradable. Un cerveza potente y densa para saborear. Muy buena.

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.
