5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
UPDATED: NOV 18, 2008 8x12 oz bottles consumed over the course of the month of October, most from a Duvel glass at near room temperature.....the tight-bubbled light caramel head recedes moderately quickly atop a deep chocolate, thick, opaque body, typically leaving very little in the way of lace, though it tends to congeal thickly when swirled enough....the aroma is....just absolute nirvana: the most intense marzipan, inflected by toasted almonds, coconut, deep cocoabutter; hints of port and rosewater, as I dig deeper and oh my have I dug deeper into this one, is this as worthy of digging into as anything, magisterial, tremendous....I remember being so worried, the first time I cracked one of these open, and experienced this divine perfume, wondering if the quality could possibly carry through on the palate, and was overjoyed -- and astonished -- to find that it did, a darker and more bitter, even caustic if drunk too quickly espresso-Scotch burn that lasts as long as I can bear it, continuing and deepening as more sips are taken, sips turning into gulps as I cannot drink slowly, cannot forbear to quaff it as if it were the blood of angels....and like an angel, its kiss is soft, delicate, yet unforgettable.
I don’t feel like quibbling here. Though I could never be satisfied with just one kind of beer, one flavor profile, one style ... Palo Santo Marron does everything it can do in its own particular style and profile, perfectly. Impossibly joy-bringing.

Pours dark with a bit of foam. Aroma is woody, something interesting going on, library bookshelf? Tastes really rich, full of chocolate, bitter one with not too much cocoa. Booze bites a bit and leaves beautiful long lasting aftertaste.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very unique. Bottle pours Very dark brown with one finger persistent tan head. Aroma Palo Santo and malts. Taste matches with wood, vanilla, roast malts and other spices I can’t identify which I guess are coming from the Palo Santo. Almost a cinnamon/nutmeg sensation. Creamy palate with woody finish.
