look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
12oz bottle into a tulip
A: Pours a clear amber with a white head that fades to a ring and leaves a bit of lacing on the glass.
S: The nose is full of caramel, toffee, vanilla, and sweet malt. The nose is actually pretty nice on this one.
T: The taste is a bit weaker than what the nose lead on. There are faint notes of caramel, vanilla, and sweet malt but they are no where near as pronounced as I thought they would be.
M: The feel is medium bodied with a decent creaminess.
O: This isn't exactly the best Old Ale I've had but it's not too bad. Hopefully given some time this will develop into something better. I'll be visiting this again in a year or so.

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.
