St Bernardus Abt matured for 6 months in Oak Calvados barrels.
It pours deep brown with a thick beige head. Nose is light weird herbs, brown sugar, sweet, light soap, brown banana… Taste: sweet malt, brown sugar, dried fruit, yeast, oak, caramel, cherry and cognac. Body: Full body with a great, crisp, carbonation. A very very nice brew.

This beer is one the hardest genuine Trappist beers to find!
Pours a cloudy reddish brown with a thick biege head. Aroma is a bit sweet with fruit and caramel. Really nice full and chewy mouthfeel. Raisins, brown sugar, dark fruits, alcohol, and caramel are right upfront. Nice lingering aftertaste. There’s a lot to sink your teeth into, so to speak. A really complex beer that wants you to ask for more.
