St-Bernardus Abt 12 OAK Aged 11°
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.
Vleteren Bruin 12° Oak Barrel Aged
Pours a very dark brown coloured beer, with a light beige head on top, almost two fingers in size, thick enough, with average retention and light lacing left on the glass. Aroma is dried fruit, honeyed caramel, light grape and port notes, vanilla, dark rum soaked bread, drier barrel elements. Taste is caramel and fruity port, dark toffee, yeast and honey, spicy bitterness, finishing with light chocolate and brown sugar. Smooth, medium heavy body. Pretty nice.
