On tap. Served in a goblet. Color is a very dark brown, almost black. Thick, soapy head that kind of looks like maple cake frosting. The never never goes away. Real malty in the nose...smells sweet, like molasses and fruit, and some wood aroma in there too. The taste follows the nose. Sweet, followed by oakiness. Tastes like vanilla, molasses, figs (?), and almost chocolaty. Real nice mouthfeel. Creamy smooth with only a hint of carbonation. Leaves quite a bit of stick behind, but drinks real easy for such a strong dark beer. A real nice drinking experience.
Serving type: on-tap

Poured into a snifter. Bottle date January 2014.
A-black without any light shining through at all. Looks like an imperial stout.
S-booze, liquorice, raisin, ferment able sugars.
T-Carmel, dark fruit, raisin, licorice, overwhelming amount of alcohol and burn. Too much for my taste.
M- full bodied medium carbonation, lots of alcohol legs. One finger head that surprisingly sticks around.
O- very big beer. I have enjoyed world wide stout and 120, but this one is too big for me. The alcohol festers in the back of your throat and causes an overwhelming burn and bitterness. Not for me.

Dogfish Head Santo Marron has a thin, cream-colored head, a extremely dark-brown (essentially black) appearance, with noticeable, fierce bubbles streams at the side of the glass. There is a lacing sheen left behind. Aroma is super-sweet, full, syrupy, and of alcohol. Taste is of dark-roasted, very sweet, syrupy barley malt, a background wood note, subdued hop bitterness, and even molasses, I think. Mouthfeel is rather heavy, with an underlying chalkiness (which I perceive as a flaw). Dogfish Head Santo Marron finishes mostly wet and very boozy.
