Dogfish Head Palo Santo Marron
The Dogfish Head Palo Santo Marron is a wood aged Brown Ale that has a uniquely smoky, malty, and roasty character. A big factor in this unique flavor is the handmade wooden brewing vessels that the brewers at Dogfish Head have crafted from Paraguayan Palo Santo wood – you can read more about this over on the Dogfish Head website.
The smells are evocative of chocolate and toffee, with a clear notion of aged wood, with a particularly bold character. This beer is a powerful 12% ABV, with a surprisingly smooth mouth feel and enjoyable drinkability for such a flavorful dark beer. For all of the unique character and complex flavors, we are amazed that this beer is brewed year-round. We’re definitely thankful for that, because it’s the kind of beer we’d like to enjoy as often as possible!
