My name "Abt", is short for "Abbot" and it refers to a title for the highest-ranking monk in an abbey. As the most prized and respected beer of St. Bernardus, I account for more than half of the total brewery's production. I am a classic Belgian Quadrupel beer and have been brewed based on an original Sint-Sixtus Trappist Ale recipe since 1946.
I pour a creamy dark brown with a full ivory head that offers an aromatic, fruity and slightly spicy bouquet as well as a complex, hoppy yet malty, bittersweet flavour. Here's a less well-known fact about me: my iconic laughing monk label changes to a winking one on every 1000th bottle that rolls off my brewery's production line!
