An Abt/Quadrupel brewed by
St. Bernard Brouwerij
Glassware: Trappist style
Had on tap at Monk’s in Philadelphia. I was pretty excited to be able to try this one on tap for the first time. Pours a very nice tan head with a dark ruby/brown body. It looks just gorgeous. It smells of dark fruits an sweet malts. The flavor of this beer really develops as you go on – take your time with it. It always stays smooth and slightly sweet though. The flavor is fruit, malt, yeast, spices and dried fruit. It is top of its class.
