Poured from a 12-ounce bottle into a snifter glass. The beer pours dark toffee brown with a minimal light tan head that lingers briefly, leaving a cap of lacing atop the beer. I can see tiny bubbles rising within the beer from the side of the glass, but the color of the beer is opaque so you aren't going to see a ton anyway. Dark fruits hit the nose right up front. I get figs and plums with candi sugar and dark roasted malt. I don't even smell much alcohol. The flavor of dark fruit jumps out on the first sip, hitting the tongue with plenty of fig, plum, and raisin. There's some nice dark roasted malt and candi sugar flavors as well, bringing some nice maltiness and sweetness. The flavors nicely mask the alcohol here. The body is medium to full with moderate carbonation. The finish is slightly dry. This is dangerously drinkable for such a big beer. This is an excellent beer.

Saint Arnold Divine Reserve 13 has virtually no head, but you can get a very thin, yellowish head to develop. The appearance is very dark brown (almost black, really), but under direct sunlight, you’ll see a clear, ruby red. The aroma is of spicy, bready malt, with an accompanying sweetness and yeastiness. The taste is similar, with added fruit candy, dark fruit, fruit cake, dark bread crust, pepper, brown sugar, a backside touch of crayfish boil, and the slightest shade of banana, with an added, yet subdued, bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium and very prickly (with the little, tiny bubble carbonation), and the finish is dry (not Bud Light dry, though), sugar, chewy, sweet, and brandy like. Overall, this is a stunning, outstanding offering from Saint Arnold of Houston, Texas, and I (in the strongest possible terms) recommend hastily heading out to find this. Overall, I rate this as outstanding, and that’s probably a too-low rating. I beg you to try this! As a side note- after drinking 65% of the bottle, one becomes quite aware of the gentle warmth of this beer’s 11% alcohol level. Awesome!
