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.

Poured Palo Santo Marron into a snifter.

A - Pours black as midnight with a half finger of light mocha head.

S - Roasted malts, with light vanilla.

T - Dark roasted malts with chocolates. Some alcohol comes through mid-palate. It has some more vanilla and booze in there as well. On the finish it has more dark chocolates with heavy toasted malts.

M - Very nice here, with medium mouthfeel, and medium carbonation.

O - A great brown ale if not the best I've had. Highly recommended! Cheers!
