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.

Flaska frn SB 2011. Bst fre 2016. Mahognyfrgad, lgt skum. Stor doft av torkad frukt, marsipan, st tobak och madeira. Smaken gr i linje med doften och r vl utvecklad, tobakstoner, fikon, torkade pron, lingon, stlakrits, madeira. Stor stma som brs och balanseras av alkoholen. Vlutvecklad, komplex och smakrik. En riktigt bra abt.

Another great Struise beer. Very rich and nutty quad with tons of dark fruit notes and a dry flavorful finish. Great to try this one.

fantti (1001) - FINLAND - JAN 13, 2013
Kaatuu lasiin tummanruskeana ja "kirkkaana", vaahdon ollessa runsas ja solukkomainen. Haju on marjainen, tumman hedelminen (etenkin luumuinen), siirappinen, sammalmainen, metsinen, multainen ja lakritsinen. Maku on tumman hedelminen, yrttinen, havuinen, ruohoinen ja makea. Jlkimaussa on lakritsisuutta. Suutuntuma on melko tytelinen ja tasainen. Kokonaisuutena tasapainoinen ja hyv olut, josta puuttuu se viimeinen srm, ett nousisi huipputuotteeksi.

Bottle at t Antwaerps Bierhuiske (Antwerp, Belgium)
Pours dark brown with a tan head which recedes quickly into a lace. Aroma is raisins, figs, and nuts. Taste is a fairly malty sweetness, although the texture is thin and the finish relatively dry. Im also two-for-two in Belgium for label errors on my De Struise bottles; this one was given one label which was then rolled and crushed underneath a second label. Ive been having fun with these personal touches. Im becoming a big fan of De Struise.

Bottle 33 cl. Pours dark brown in color with a frothy tan head. Sweet dark fruits, cranberry, brown sugar and syrup in aroma. Dark fruits, some booze, small hints of cherrylike sweetness in taste. Quite dry mouthfeel. Cough drops and malty sweetness with nice yeastyness in aftertaste.
