American Brown Ale |  12.00% ABV

Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
An unfiltered, unfettered, unprecedented brown ale aged in handmade wooden brewing vessels. The caramel and vanilla complexity unique to this beer comes from the exotic Paraguayan Palo Santo wood from which these tanks were crafted. Palo Santo means "holy tree," and its wood has been used in South American wine-making communities.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

A: Pours a very dark chocolaty brown. Appears to be very thick. Small light brown head. Decent retention. Not much lacing.

A: Aroma is quite strong. Chocolate and roasted coffee up front. Alcohol is very evident. Caramel. A little bit of a smoky aroma. A little bit of sweet malt. One of the better smelling beers I've had recently.

T: Very thick. More of the roasted coffee up front. Followed by caramel and molasses. Alcohol is masked better in the taste than it was in the aroma. Roasted malts. Vanilla. A little bit of alcohol warmth. Wonderfully balanced.

M: Heavy bodied. A little bit more carbonation than I would prefer in this one. Thick and creamy. Shockingly smooth for the ABV.

O: A fantastic brew. Could easily be mistaken for a Stout, but I don't know that I've ever had a Stout this easy to drink. Wonderfully balance in the taste, fantastic aroma. Can't go wrong with this one.

A - a brown ale but seemed nearly pitch-black to me. Seemed like not much head, then it started growing, and growing, and GROWING, to a full 2". Very handsome indeed. An outstanding pour.

S - mildly sweet, herby.

T - Sweet, citrusy, smoky, quite drinkable. High ABV is well-hidden. A tasty ale, lads!

M - Gives new meaning to the word "creamy". First, that 2" head swirls nicely on the tongue. Then, the overall effect is rich and smooth. Impeccable.

O - I don't go for darks, but this is a good 'un. Very drinkable. Goes down easier than Guinness.
