St. Bernardus Abt 12 is an award winning quadrupel that pours a hazy brown with a frothy beige head and expressive carbonation.

Top fermented, bottle conditioned and matured for three months, the brew boasts aromas of dried fruits, plums and raisins, coffee, cherry, bread and caramel.

Taste follows the nose and includes candy sugar sweetness balanced by spice, coriander, a big hit of malt, fruit, and the warming power of 10.0% ABV.

The mouthfeel is soft, smooth and medium bodied. The finish is dry, warm and slightly bitter.

Food Pairings

This beer is a perfect ingredient in and accompaniment to classic Belgian stews, such as rabbit and prune casserole or beef carbonnade.

Blue cheeses of the Roquefort type also make for an ideal pairing, and don't overlook chocolate desserts for an unexpected but very successful combination.

Serve at 46 - 57 degrees F.

The St. Bernardus Brewery was founded in 1946 by Evarist Deconinck. When the Trappist monks of the St. Sixtus Monastery in Westvleteren, Belgium decided that brewing and promotional efforts had become a serious distraction from religious and contemplative activities, they granted Deconinck a license to brew and distribute Trappistine beers based on the monastery's recipe.

That arrangement continued for decades, but in 1992, when it was decreed that only beers brewed within the walls of a monastery under direct control of the monks could be called Trappist beers, St. Bernardus launched its own brand of abbey beers to huge success.

Today, the brewery distributes award winning ales to more than two dozen countries including the United States, Canada, Brazil, Australia and Japan.

OVERALL IMPRESSION: If, you are going to introduce a friend to the world of Belgian Abbey Quadrupels, our suggestion is to start with the Abt 12. When a beer is called world class, the criteria that follows is not easily obtained. The masterful mixture of art and science in the brewing of beer is one that only a large handful of brewers worldwide achieve. Browuerij St. Bernardus has achieved that status thousands of times over. The Abt 12 is not only a must have, but it is a beer that you MUST drink before you die. Buy as much as you can of this beer- drink some now, and lay some down enjoying one as each year passes. The aging potential of this beer is beyond comprehension. The Abt 12 is truly, HEAVENLY NECTAR WITHIN REACH. For more, visit our BREWVIEW ON ST. BERNARDUS ABT 12:
