Dogfish Head's Palo Santo Marron, malt beverage aged on Palo Santo wood. 12% ABV
A: About half a finger of cocoa brown head. Just a thing arc of lacing. Very sparkly lacing, which slides up the side of the glass, in the beer. Beer is black, with extremely dark brown in the dimple, and a sliver of dark golden brown at the very bottom.
S: Smells fairly boozy. Lot of deep toffee and molasses like malty notes. Almost Bourbon-y. Some cedar or redwood notes. A touch of bittersweet chocolate. I quite enjoy the nose, actually! The smell is so strong I can taste it slightly on my tongue if I take a deep whiff.
T/MF: The flavors follow along very closely to the smell. Very deep burnt toffee, with undertones of bittersweet chocolate, and just a touch of char. Very slight licorice. Deep, sap note. The flavors seem to waft around just over the tongue. I like all of this better on the nose, but it tastes pretty great, too. It does taste slightly boozy, so that wasn't masked as well as it could be, but that's a minor complaint.
Poured from a 12 oz. bottle, into a Belgian tulip glass.

4.01/5 rDev -3.8%
A: Very dark almost pure opaque. Not a head really at all. Thick and lacing left on the glass.
S: Brown sugar and dark fruits. Also that palo santo wood.
T: Dark fruit, brown sugar, bitter chocolate, a lot of woodiness, booze, nice hop profile, beef jerky, tobacco, and graham cracker. Those are the tastes I got outa this one. Damn good.
M: Thick and not overly thick. A bit hot.
O: This is a huge beer. It's a little too hot for my tastes, and it's the end of the night. But it's very good overall. Complex and flavorfull- also unique in style.
