COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The color is deep amber with a light, creamy head. The nose starts off with a touch of citrus but then turns decidedly into peaches. The taste starts off with creamy malt resulting from the pale 2 row and caramel malts and Saint Arnold yeast. The hop bitter starts low then builds to a crescendo, but always maintains a balance even in its big finish. The hop flavor continues to be peaches, an interesting manifestation of the Columbus, Simcoe and Centennial hops. This is the first Divine Reserve that we have filtered. This decision was made to make the hop flavors brighter, plus it would have been a bottling nightmare with all the hop bits in it. This beer is best enjoyed at 45° or even a little warmer. Though the recipe and style indicate this beer to be enjoyed fresh, we expect this beer to develop interestingly over the years.

Type: Draft Glass: 12-oz. plastic cup From: Hoppy Monk in El Paso, Texas Price: $6.00 Purchased: Sept. 27, 2013 Consumed: Sept. 27, 2013 Misc.: In a very dark place during Oktoberfest Poured what appeared to be a dark caramel amber color with two fingers of khaki white head. Tons of even layered lacing on the sides of the cup. Good retention all the way down. Smelled a potent mix of wonderfully smelling hops. Got floral, citrus, grapefruit, peach and a touch of resin. Tasted more earthier than the smell, but still fresh. Bitter grapefruit, floral heavy and citrus notes. Medium body. Oily texture. Average carbonation. Long, bitter finish. This was just a fantastic beer. I would love to try it again.

Tastes more like an IPA not a double. Great flavor but overall it doesn't knock my socks off. ABV is high. Overall good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Got this as an extra from HeffIam. Really terrific beer. Pours beautiful clear pear with dissipating white head. Scent is citrus candy. Flavor bites big up front and then eases gently into a malty finish. Well carbonated light medium body. Bottle - Trade from HeffIam

Cervesa molt aromàtica, en boca hi ha un gran equilibri entre maltes i llúpol que li aporten un toc dolç i un amargor més baix. Cerveza muy aromática, en boca hay un gran equilibrio entre maltas y lúpulo que le aportan un toque dulce y un amargor mas bajo.

Bottle. Clear amber with a thick bubbly white head. Aroma is beautiful. Sweet, fresh juicy citrus. Similar flavors. Really great fresh orange juice sweetness with a firm but restrained bitterness. Finishes dry with a long, drawn out astringency.

The beer pours an orange-copper color with a small off-white head. The aroma is heavy on the papaya, with a little bit of resiny pine, pineapple and bready malt mixed in. A very nice, fresh smelling aroma. The flavor is also very nice. I get a lot of tropical fruit - mainly apricots and papaya - as well as some resiny pine. There is a touch of bready malt and the bitterness is about medium for the style. There is also a nice bit of alcohol warming. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Overall, one of the better Divine Reserve beers I have tried. This is right up there with No. 6 as my favorites. I think this one is going to be best drank fresh so I won’t be sitting on any of these.

Clear copper color in the glass with a white head. Fantastic aroma, with notes of citrus, flowers, pine, and fruit (including an apricot note). Pleasantly bitter on the palate. Easily one of the best Saint Arnold beers I’ve tried. Well done.

UPDATED: JAN 22, 2012 Clear, deep orange hued amber with a white head. Aroma of citrus, apricot, flowers, pine and caramel. The taste is very nicely balanced between the sweet malts and the various hop characteristics. The citrus is particularly evident, and there is just a little detectable alcohol. Body is medium-full and smooth, and the finish is dry and a little bitter. Saint Arnold generally makes decent, though not great, beer, but Divine 11 is definitely well above most of the others that I’ve tried.
