St. Bernardus Abt 12, a Quadrupel (10% ABV) brewed by Brouwerij St. Bernardus NV in Watou, Belgium.
Deep brown in color; aromas of fruit and spice. Smooth, thick and rich. Finishes crisp with some sweetness. Big flavorful beer. One of the original recipes from the days of license-brewing for the Trappist monks of Westvleteren. We have been sitting on this version for a year in our magic temperature controlled beer box.
"Sheer bliss. Viewed as an abbey beer. According to Daisy (owner of 't Brugs Beertje), this beer follows the same recipe, uses the same water and its hops comes from the same hop regions as Westvleteren. "Abt" means the "highest rank." They also make a "Prior" at about half the strength." - Alstrom Brothers on BeerAdvocate.com where the Brothers rate this beer 100/World-Class
