COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer was inspired by David Rogers’ winning entry in the 2011 Big Batch Brew Bash homebrew competition. The color is orangy amber with a light, creamy head. The nose has rich malt notes and a little alcohol that combines with a spicy hop note to create a complex bouquet. The taste has a spicy, malty beginning that smoothes out into a creamy middle and a warming finish. While this beer is enjoyable now, it is designed to be aged and will shine after a year or more in the bottle. This will allow sherry flavors to develop as the alcohol oxidizes. It is also important to allow this beer to warm up so that all of the flavors emerge and round out the high alcohol level.

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.

Saint Arnold Divine Reserve 12 has a thin, cream-colored head, a brilliant, yet somewhat murky, orange appearance with decent lacing and a lot of tiny little bubble steams. The aroma is faint, but one does pick up fruit juice of some sort. Taste is of fruit, with a surprisingly low bitterness, some faint malt, and that’s about it. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy, and Saint Arnold Divine Reserve 12 finishes semi-dry, mild, and drinkable. No real alcohol presence is detected here. Overall, it’s lovely, and I rate it highly. Get some! RJT

12 oz bottle aged 2 years. Poured an orange unfiltered. very complex: definitely yeasty, biscuit smell and alcohol after taste. Medium carbonation, medium body. Courtesy of TizzleJizzle! Thanks!
