In XIth century Tournay, when the city only had barely 10,000 inhabitants, a cannon called Odon d'Orléans was unable to find a place for silent prayer and meditation. So he founded a new place to live and pray: St Martin's Abbey. In 1096, Bishop Radbot granted the monks of St Martin's the right to brew, a valuable privilege granted by King Childeric. And that is all to the good as in a time when plague and cholera reigned, people already knew that it was wiser to drink beer than water. The recipes of St Martin's beers have remained a secret. 

  • The look : Dark and strong mahogany colour. Light head that remains for an average time.
  • The smell : First a dairy and cheese-like aroma. Then, coffee and roasted coffee beans. A touch of warm brown sugar, cane sugar and rum.
  • The taste : The mouth closely follows the nose, the roasted coffee, the grill. The caramel is just right without being too much. Then there is a lovely freshness that balances the whole but attention this is a beer for with a meal or for tasting. Goes well with meat with sweet and sour sauce, duck à l'orange ....

Amount : 33 cl.
