Abt 12 Magnum Edition 2021 comes in a specially designed Magnum sized bottle (1.5 liters / 50.721 oz) with embossed brewery logo, Bière Belge neck, champagne cork with logo and gold wirehood.

This year's design by the narrative photographer Bart Ramakers is a tribute to the Flemish artist Panamarenko entitled 'Around The World in 80 Years', in which he is depicted as Phileas Fogg. Two days after this festive photo shoot, Panamarenko died unexpectedly. Ramakers derived his inspiration for the scene from the work of the Italian Baroque painter Caravaggio. It extends the tradition (started in 2012) that makes these annual bottles collector's items.

St. Bernardus Abt 12 is an award winning quadrupel that pours a hazy brown with a frothy beige head and expressive carbonation.

Top fermented, bottle conditioned and matured for three months, the brew boasts aromas of dried fruits, plums and raisins, coffee, cherry, bread and caramel.

Taste follows the nose and includes candy sugar sweetness balanced by spice, coriander, a big hit of malt, fruit, and the warming power of 10.0% ABV.

The mouthfeel is soft, smooth and medium bodied. The finish is dry, warm and slightly bitter.

Food Pairings

This beer is a perfect ingredient in and accompaniment to classic Belgian stews, such as rabbit and prune casserole or beef carbonnade.

Blue cheeses of the Roquefort type also make for an ideal pairing, and don't overlook chocolate desserts for an unexpected but very successful combination.

Serve at 46 – 57 degrees F.
