Pours a dark brown with lots of head that dissipates pretty fast. Aroma is sweet. Taste is sweet okay but not great

Sweeter than expected. Can't taste the alcohol as much as other alike. Full of flavor, an amazing beer. Very smooth and worth trying.

This is a member of a small selection of beers that collectively set the bar for its type. As such, it is beyond reproach in all commentary aside from seasonal or annual variation. In other words, by definition the best St. Bernardus Abt 12 ever produced (whichever that was) was, by definition, a 5.

Good brew. But like someone says it does have a slight cough syrup like alcohol taste
