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.

From Nov 2005 Poured a beautiful gold-brown with a rich head that settled down after a few minutes but remained throughout as a fine layer. The smell was fruity with plum notes taking center stage but it was more of a subtle aroma than I expected. The taste is a mix of fruit, more of the plum and some banana with a faint clove presence. Yum. This is wonderfully balanced brew that does a nice job of warming *and* doesn't let the alcohol interfere with the flavours' symphonic melody. Tis a fine example of a Belgian Quadrupel.

UPDATED: OCT 13, 2017 Sød og karamelagtig aroma. Også gær og malt i næsen. Fuld krop - alkoholen blusser op i munden. Maltet, gæret og sød. Dejlig øl.
