Abt is Dutch for Abbot, meaning the leader of the Abbey. No surprise this beer is named ‚ÄúAbt‚Äù, since it is also the leader of the Kapittel, the beer with the highest alcohol content 10%
This triple is refermented in the bottle and only good to drink after a few months aging, which is done at the brewery, and ready to be aged for up to 20 years.
As most good triples, the colour tends to be paler, in this case amber, with good head retention. The alcohol content is well complimented with a very complex aroma.
It is round, malty, not very bitter (hoppy), slightly sweet (depending on age) and balanced with fruity hints on the tongue.
A warming beer, which is a dessert on its own. Such triples were reserved for the Abbots and the Bishops, and only on special Holy days the rest of the Abbey could also drink this delicious beer
