COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Saint Amatus, also called St. Aim, 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.

Une bouteille de 33 cl. Vintage 2011. consommer de prfrence avant le 29 aot 2016. Une fois vers, le liquide prend devant mes yeux une teinte bruntre et mme rougetre. Des sdiments qui traversent le fluide sont observables et nenlvent rien mon apprciation visuelle. La mousse qui se forme nest pas trs paisse mais offre une prestation honnte. Une dentelle se tisse tranquillement sur la paroi du verre. Une fois le nez plong dans le verre, des effluves de sucre brun, de vanille, de banane, de fruits foncs et dpices sunissent pour former une cohsion intressante mais un peu lourde. Sur les papilles, des flaveurs proposes qui sont menes par du chocolat et par une prsence liquoreuse charge par les fruits. Derrire chaque nouvelle gorge, une affirmation savoureuse de la rglisse et des particules lmentaires sucres. En bouche, un corps qui simpose, dbordant de suavit et de robustesse, des bulles qui amliorent sa buvabilit et une structure crmeuse, riche et presque charnelle. Une finale chaude, dcadente, sucre par les malts, dgoulinante de caramel et de tire drable. Merci Tommy pour cette opportunit.

Esto es una gran cerveza. Con mucha graduacin, pero riqusima, para tomarla despus de una buena cena copiosa. Mejor a temperatura ambiente que fria.

Bottle, from Dranken Geers. 33cl. Pours dark brown/black with a dark brown head. Dark malts obviously present in the foam, as well as in the nose. Sweet coffee, caramel, burnt nuts ... Aroma when sipping a bit liquorish, fusels. Then esters show up. Belgian yeast profile says hi. Mouthfeel very good, slick and warming, medium to low carbonation. Very good.

davey101 (751) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 8, 2012
Vintage 2010, B-09-15. 330 ml bottle into a goblet. Thanks a ton Rempo! A - Dark brown body bordering on red. Small light khaki head that dissipates into a super thin line of bubbles around the edge of the glass. Weak lacing and retention. Doesnt look too inspiring for a quad. S - Ripe dark fruits, dark chocolate, spices, roasted malts, and candi sugar. Excellent aroma. The chocolate is super rich and just compliments the quad notes. T - Brown sugar, caramelized dates and prunes, spices and Belgian yeast, light chocolate on the finish. A tad metallic and coppery with some lingering cherry notes. Tasty and unique for a quad. M - Medium bodied and slightly silky. Carbonation is low and spot on. Alcohol provided a touch of much needed warmth. O - Its a shame this beer is in the shadows of the greatness that is Pannepot and its variants. This beer is really unique and delicious and the chocolate notes are just phenomenal. I wish this was beer was more accessible.
