Saint Amatus, also called St. Aimé, was a Benedictine monk.

He took the defense of the lesser man who was exploited by the Merovingian king Thierry III.

In Belgium, Oostvleteren is the only parish to patron St Amatus as saint.

Struise started brewing at Deca in Vleteren early 2006, we ankered ourselves by starting the development of our own micro brewery in Oostvleteren during 2009. With this adventure being on the rails, we thought the making of Saint Amatus 12 was as evident as can be.

The terrific artwork was brought by our narcissistic artist Carlo Grootaert.

Saint Amatus has aged on Woodford Reserve barrels from Labrot & Graham, Kentucky USA. Some batches were instead aged on Pappy Van Winkle whiskey barrels, both varieties are valid for this entry.

The label appears to be a simple printing from an inkjet printer. But do not be tempted by the outside. Once in the glass, this Quadruple is a full and adult beer. Ripe fruit and a creamy fluidity. Good and tasty.

TrefwoordPunk (1201) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - MAY 2, 2013
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a dark reddish brown with a small tan head and an aroma of ripe fruits, maybe vherries and prunes, raisins, toffee and some earth. The taste is sweet, but not too sweet considering the style and the alcohol is just a bit noticable. Good malty taste, with a creamy mouthfeel and lots of different notes including some vanilla and caramel. A really nice quadruple!

33cl bottle from dranken Geers in Oostakker. Dark brown body with a beige head. Aroma and taste of roasted malts, dark chocolat and drop. A little too "heavy". ***

Pull from bsuedekum’s pour at Local Option- thanks again, Blake! Pours a cloudy amber-brown with a small beige head. Notes of rich roasted and caramel malts, tons of dark fruits (figs, raisins, plums), wood, vanilla, earth, and molasses. Big body, with a smooth mouthfeel and low carbonation. Dry finish. A superior take on the style to the Rio Reserva.

VT (2527) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - APR 29, 2013
330 ml bottles from czar at blind tasting. A dark ruby brown, bordering on black with a resilient beige-brown head. Aroma is vanilla, creme brulée, roast, caramel and oak. Flavor is roast, extremely sweet, caramel, vanilla, burnt wood, oak. Finish is sandy, earthy, roasty. Delicious. Medium body, sticky mouthfeel. Weak to average carbonation. Excellent quadrupel!

@ZBF13. Even though it has a good rate here, I didnt like it that much. Of course it was my 10th beer at the fest, so I was not so sober. I just see my notes now, and my grade was 3 out 5.

JohnnyJ (5562) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 27, 2013
Draft at Oakquinox 2013. Clear reddish amber pour, with a beige head. Sweet caramel malt, notes of fruit, toffee, whiskey, oak, sharp metallic flavors, light note of vanilla. Decent, but the body is rather thin, and the metallic taste is not pleasant. Could have been better.

Nocturne (1992) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - APR 23, 2013
330ml bottle. Dark reddish brown colour with a lasting creamy head. Red fruity and malty nose. If I strain I can pick out the moss as stated on the label, but I wouldn’t have guessed it was there. Taste-wise it’s much the same as the aroma. Starts with something like cold coffee before plum and red grape fruitiness takes over. Shows some nice Belgian yeast character too. Unfortunately it’s just not as interesting and complex as I hoped it might be.

alassio (96) - USA - APR 21, 2013
It’s all about pleasant flavors - - plums and figs and carob. Not much carbonation, and it’s kind of light on the palate. Just kind of sits there in the glass. But very, very tasty, with enough zest and gentle bittering to make it very well-rounded. P.S. the bottle looks fab.

BeerSkull (1373) - SWEDEN - APR 21, 2013
(Bottle) Sweet scent and flavor of caramel malt, brown sugar, yeast and warming alcohol.
