Big Brown Ale aged on palo santo wood from Paraguay. This beer is a 12% abv, highly roasty, and malty brown ale aged on the wood of the Palo Santo tree from Paraguay. Palo Santo means "holy tree" and it's wood has been used in South American wine-making communities. We were lucky enough to get our hands on 20 blocks of the super-dense wood and the wood was added to the ageing tank after fermentation.

Dogfish Head Palo Santo Marron doesn’t live up to the hype for me. Dark brown pour with a thin head that doesn’t last. Very light aroma of malt. Taste is very boozy with notes of mostly bourbon with subtle hints of wood. Not a lot of compexity. For me, Palo Santo Marron was just big booze bomb.

OK this is my first and only 5/5 score so far. I have always been against giving a perfect score to a beer/wine/meal but I think this one totally deserves it. May sounds weird, but I had it with a medium-spiced chili con carne. I was in Heaven! The beer is not spicy at all. Nose of woods,vanilla, coffee and a bit of smoke in the end. Taste is woody just as the nose, a litle sweetness, dark fruits, whiskey. This is so complex! I have no words to describe this. Sorry to leave you guys, but I got to lay back a moment to enjoy this magnifiscient beer in this very moment. Cheers!

Smells great, smoke and dark malt. Not overly complex but rich aroma. Looks great, very dark with long lasting brown head. Tastes great, vanilla and sweet malt upfront, woody and smoky notes to finish. A bit of cherry and sweetness round out the finish. Great and interesting beer. Super silky smooth, average carbonation.

Bit of an alcohol aroma but rather smooth on the tongue. Earthy and chocolatey, with a bit of oaky bite ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Arômes de bois, de vanille, de caramel et de chocolat avec une pointe d’alcool. En bouche un corps moyen avec un assemblage de saveurs semblable au nez. Excellent

Not much aroma for me. A bit of brown sugar. Dark brown, dissipating tan head. Flavor is bitter chocolate, vanilla, some booze and cola. Sticky mouthfeel. Nice sipper.

bottle. Pours black with an average-sized brown head. Somewhat roasty aroma with some booziness. Somewhat sweet in flavor with roasty notes and a bit of alcohol warming. Smooth on the palate with a warm sweet finish. Very good.

A very dark brown color and a small light brown head. A nice aroma of raisins and banana. The first that hit me was the thickness of the brew in the mouth, but at the same time it is well carbonated. The taste has some sweetness resembling that of liqourice, raisins and prunes, and a decent bitterness as well. Great heavy beer in my opinion!
