Bottle - thanks Mora2000! Pours clear deep ruby black, small tan head, some lacing. Aroma is dried fruit, molasses, figs, maybe chocolate, spices. Flavor is the same, light sweet, rich of orange zesty, spices. Medium body, airy carbonation. Too spiced for my tastes. ABV is well hidden though!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Copper pour with a small beige head. Sweet aroma of brown sugar, toffee, caramel, and dark fruit. Dates, raisins, banana, and a touch of spice. Some chocolate, alcohol, and yeast. Big sweetness of caramel, brown sugar, and toffee. Strong date, plum, and raisin flavors. Hints of clove, nutmeg, chocolate, and yeast. A little bit boozy.

Deep brown almost black in the glass. Aroma of yeast and dried fruits. Somewhat bitter with nice raisin and dried fruits notes on the palate.

Big Texas Beer Fest. Dark pour with a small head. Aroma is dark fruit, lemons, and roast. Taste is chocolate, roast, more banana, and just a whole lot of stuff happening at the end. Torn between whether I was happy at complexity or whether I was confused by a too much going on.

I don’t get the hype of the Devine Reserve series. To me, only one was out of this world, the pumpkin beer. This didn’t compare to the quads I’ve had from La Trappe, Rochefort, Westy or even Allagash.

Thanks, Drew. Nose has moderate dark fruits and sweetness. Fairly full body with a touch of booze. Touch of spice. Well rounded.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Easily one of the most dissapointing of the Divine series. The most notable problem is how thin the palate is for the style. There is just no life in this beer when in the mouth.

Tap @ Porch Swing Pub. Very dark pour with no head but I didn’t see them draw it. Dark fruit and chocolate are somewhat overwhelmed by the alcohol sharpness. Think I’ll let the 6-pack my wife picked up age a bit before diving in.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep garnet, tan head ever so briefly. Dark fruit in the nose, raisins and figs. Sweet on the tongue. Middle is nutmeg and mince meat, a little oily. Finish presents light hop bitterness, coco, and warming alcohol. Good beer, but the sum does not equal the parts.

Bold and beefy. Strong aroma of alcohol, malted grain and raisin. Thick. Flavors of berry and malt. Nice finish. Very drinkable but dangerous with its high above. Great job saint a.
