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.

Looks: this beer was dark! it had a very thick look with a super dark brown color.
Nose: for the most part i smelt alcohol but later on i found there to be a very fruity smell. almost like wine.
taste: At first i was distracted by the mouth feel being very thick and then by the alcohol. as it warmed up i got notes of a very sweet vanilla and caramel after tones.
