Product description

The St. Bernardus Abt 12 is the pride of our stable, this Abbey ale is brewed in the classic 'Quadrupel' style of Belgium's best Abbey Ales. Dark with a full, ivory-colored head. It has a fruity aroma, full of complex flavours and excels because of its long bittersweet finish with a hoppy bite. (10,0% ABV) Worldwide seen as one of the best beers in the world. It's a very balanced beer, with a full-bodied taste and a perfect equilibrium between malty, bitter and sweet. One of the original recipes from the days of license-brewing for the Trappist monks of Westvleteren.

Drizly's take

Many herald St. Bernardus Abt 12 ale as an interesting beer, and the brewery honors it as the masterpiece of its collection. The St. Bernardus brewery crafts and ages this Belgian Trappist-inspired ale in the town of Watou from an original recipe dating back to 1946. As a quadrupel beer, you can expect the bittersweet flavors of a dubbel, coupled with the alcoholic punch at 10% ABV of a tripel. The robust, ivory-colored head offsets the coffee-dark of this St. Bernardus beer. The unique hops used in the lager give it a fruity aroma countered by a bittersweet finish.

For a treat, make Coupe St. Bernard, a homemade chocolate and beer ice cream. This ale pairs well with spare ribs and baked potato. Marinade the meat in this abbey ale for a flavorful meal.
