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.

PapaVillum (955) - Valby, DENMARK - AUG 22, 2013
33 cl flaske, ukendt %, gave fra Søs i Bruxelles, vinter 2012-2013. Uklar brunlig Quadrupel med flygtigt moccafarvet skumtop. Lettere, ikke så karakteristisk duft af hø, mørk sirup, lidt bondegårdsagtig, jordlig. Men dejlig fyldig smag og mundfylde. I starten er der god, kraftig sødme og let bitterhed, som i slutningen fortsætter sammen med lidt mindre sødme og lidt syrlighed. God lang eftersmag. Øllet føles tykt, cremet og med mild afstemt kulsyreindhold. Endnu en solid god belgier! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Idiosynkrasie (8198) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - AUG 13, 2013
330ml bottle. Clear brown colour with small to average, creamy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, beige head. Vinous aroma, fruity notes of red and dark berries, whisky notes in the background, a dry touch of oak. Taste is fruity dark malty, notes of red and dark berries, plum, hints of chocolate, a dry oaky touch, some alcohol, fine prickling carbonation supplies some levity. Very good.

On tap, Clear golden copper pour with small off white head. Aroma of malts, spices, caramel and ripe fruit. Taste of caramel, malts, raisins, pears, lychee. Surprisingly thin mouthfeel, lower carbonation, alcohol well hidden. Very tasty quad that goes down way to fast, could drink this all day long.

Dark golden brown, murky, no head; light sweet malty aroma; delicate, sweet malty taste; warming, fruity; a hint of chocolate; subtle warmth emerges into the finish; alcohol is masked really well; kind of lovely.

Dfonorow (2318) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 29, 2013
On tap at Local Option. Pour is murky brown/red with a thin cream colored head. Aroma is sweet - candi sugar, brown sugar, vanilla. Some slight booze on the nose and taste. A bit lacking in body for the ABV.
