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.

Bottle. Pours deep brown with a big caramel head with orange highlights. The nose is of christmas pudding, rum, raisins, spices, cherries. The taste is balanced sweetness with a lovely malty base. Some mulled wine flavors, more christmas spices, some pepper and dark fruits. Nice caramel flavors on the finish. The bodys full, the beers sticky, oily. A bit boozy. The carbonation nice and subtle. Overall, a really accomplished beer.

Color marrn oscuro, opaco, con reflejos rojizos, sin apenas espuma. Carbonatacin mnima. Poco cuerpo (esperaba algo ms espeso, la textura es aceitosa). Aroma a alcohol, azcar, caramelo, madera, frutas, especias. Algo tpico y con predominancia del alcohol sobre todo lo dems. Sabor dulce, con todo lo listado previamente, mayor presencia de las dark fruits que en aroma y final alcohlico bastante bien calibrado. Calienta un poco pero no molesta, muy bien integrado pese a sus 11% de alcohol. No s si mejorara al envejecerla (al fin y al cabo, la botella que he bebido llevaba embotellada seis meses), pero supongo que s. Me ha gustado pero esperaba otra cosa.
