3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A: Some fruity notes with a lot of caramel flavors. Light estery notes with hints of clove and banana.
A: Pours a somewhat murky amber-caramel color with a thin ring of foam.
T: Follows the nose with some toffee, oak, spices, very very mild dark fruits, alcohol and vanilla with a slight bitter hop note that just pulls away the nice sweetening flavors.
P:Medium-light mouth-feel with a full alcohol warmth and just a hint of bitterness.
O: Drinks like a mild Old Ale, especially for a 10% ABV, which qualifies it as a full SNIPER. Sweet, as to be expected but nothing earth-shattering.
Pours clear amber with a small beige ring. Smells of caramel and hints of alcohol. Taste is sweet, caramel, and hints of toffee and alcohol. Full-bodied with a smooth texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Saint Arnold Divine Reserve No. 12 finishes with a lingering caramel sweetness. madmitch76 (26366) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JUN 23, 2016
