Poured into a St. Bernardus chalice.
Pours a dark reddish-brown with no head to speak of.
Smells of strong alcohol, yeast and dried fruit with a considerable ester profile.
Tastes of raisins, chocolate and toffee. There is a hint of yeast, but the alcohol is pretty strong strong and mutes it. There are many other layers I simply can't pick out: a very complex beer.
For a quad, this is actually pretty dry. This is a sipper because you want to focus on all the flavors that are hidden in there.
This is a winter beer, that's for sure. With the Pater 6 and Prior 8 more suited for other seasons, the Abt 12 rounds it out so that at any point in the year, there is a St. Bernardus beer that I can go to and thoroughly enjoy.
Serving type: on-tap

A- Hazy reddish brown in the glass. 2 finger, soapy head. Pretty good lacing.
S- Mainly dark fruits. Raisin, grape, and some cherry. I get a slight whif of banana from time to time. Reminds me of red wine.
T- Grape, dark cherry, dates, slight booze, and dark bread.
M- Medium body. Lightly creamy and not overly drying. very easy drinking.
O- I enjoyed this beer. Very easy drinking for a bigger beer. Nice flavors and aroma as well.
