The true treasure of Brouwerij Sint Bernard from Watou in West Flanders is the abbot 12. A Belgian Abbey of Starkbier (Quadruple) with 10.5% alcohol, which is counted by many connoisseurs with one of the best beers in the world.
A quadruple is the logical continuation of the beer styles Dubbel and Tripel. It is usually dark beers that have an alcohol content of 10% on average. These beers are similar to many world famous trappist beers.
Abbot 12 has a dark cherry red colour with a creamy beige foam. Aromas of debris, inlaid fruits, caramel and honey penetrate the nose. In the mouth, the strong beer is very full-bodied with a pleasant recency. An intensive malt body highlights aromas of caramel and honey. Fine fruity notes that recall fruits inserted in a rum pot come to light. The alcoholic strength is well hidden behind all flavours, but shows off with a slightly warming feeling at the end in the throat and stomach area. In the finish caramel is preserved, and it is spicy intensively with fine spice and muskadh. Very complex and good Belgian beer speciality that you should have tasted.
