look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Serving Type: 12 oz bottle poured (without decanting) into a stemmed pilsener (beer tulip) glass.

Smell: Sweet cereal, caramel.

Taste: Malty, caramel and a bit boozy. Lightly peppery and bitter finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium body and relatively mild carbonation.

Overall: A drinkable, warming ale, but not specifically compelling.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Glass Used: Nonic pint

Appearance: Cloudy amber with suspended particles (should have read the descriptive note from SA's site to avoid this). About an inch and a half marshmallow creme colored head. Minimal lacing. The foam dissipated quick leaving a ring around the glass behind. Carbonation trickles up from the bottom in spots.

Smell: Lots of malt, caramel, apple, raisin, hints of what smells like oak and booze.

Taste: Wow, pretty close to the nose. Strong malts and sweet fruits with a soft sweet alcohol and caramel finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium, borderline high-low mouthfeel. A bit of tacky coating lines the mouth after the swallow. Carbonation is very low.

Overall: I find this offering from Saint Arnold pretty damn tasty. I love the malt and caramel sweetness throughout. If I had a chance to score another DR12 I would take it.
