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.

Very bold taste, doesn't give me the feel of brown ale. It's more along the lines of barley wine, the flavor is so intense. You can pick out some vanila and coffee flavors. It will knock you on your arrs if you're not carefull
