St. Bernardus Abt 12

Brewer: St. Bernardus
Style: Quadrupel
ABV: 10.5%

This brew came on high recommendation from Chuck at Ashburn Wine Shop. I try not to set expectations on beer before trying them but Chuck built it up pretty big.

After giving the beer a good rolling and popping the cork the pour showed an opaque brown liquid as the bottle emptied into the glass. A thick light brown head formed and settled at an extremely slow rate.

Aroma is sweet with hints of dark fruit and almost a mustiness at the end.

Taste is complex and falls in line pretty well with the aroma. Hints of raisin and plums even some fig. Alcohol stays well hidden only noticeable on the extreme end of the drink.

Mouth feel is very smooth with a medium body.

Giving this one a B+
