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.

Bontus (778) - Flanders, - NOV 3, 2012
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.

kaserov (362) - Oviedo, SPAIN - JAN 16, 2017
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.

alteregoo (1143) - POLAND - DEC 20, 2016
Piana sycząca, od razu znika do zera. Barwa miedziano rubinowa, klarowna. Aromat mało intensywny, jest trochę fig, rodzynek, jabłek, cukru kandyzowanego, gdzieś w tyle zioła i wanilia. W smaku lekko kwaskowe (?), płsłodkie, nieco winne z jednej strony i lekko bourbonowe z drugiej. Poza kandyzowanymi i suszonymi owocami, karmelem i miodem jest tu także czerwone wino, śliwki i wiśnie. Wysycenie niskie do średniego. Zadziwiająco rzadkie i niestety nieco alkoholowe.
Przyznaję, że spodziewałem się czegoś bardziej "quadruplowego", nieco cięższego, słodszego, bez kwaskowych naleciałości i z lepiej ułożonym alkoholem. Mam wrażenie, że trunek się do końca nie ułożył, co nie zmienia faktu że to nadal klasa piwo.
Czy to możliwe, że pojawiły się początki infekcji?
