Dogfish Head Palo Santo Marron Beer Review

Article by FisterRoboto of

Brewed by Dog Fish Head Craft Brewery

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.

$14.99/four pack

Style: American Brown Ale

12.0% ABV

Serve at 45-50

Enjoyed from a DFH signature glass

A: Dark and thick with a finger of mocha head. You would think you’re pouring a RIS based solely on its appearance. Sticky lacing.

S: Very oaky and earthy, robust grains, spices, toffee, vanilla and molasses sit on top a deep alcohol aroma. Awesome.

T: An instantly blend of oak and cedar up front. Roasted nuts, molasses, dark fruit, very roasty with a little vanilla. It just keeps going – finishes with bitter hops and a very noticeable and pleasant alcohol burn. Out of this world.

M: Heavy bodied with a rich, creamy texture. Very crisp and oily on the tongue.

O: A 12% brown ale aged in exotic wood casks: everything about this screams awesome.
