Review – Dogfish Head Palo Santo Marron
Review contributed by Evan “Ferman” Fritz
Dogfish Head Palo Santo Marron (Malt Beverage Aged On Palo Santo Wood) found at Monster Beverage in Glassboro, NJ.
Appearance: Dark opaque black in color with a caramel foam of 1.5 inches
Aroma: Fruity banana immediately upon opening and pouring. Then caramel, with a piney forest smell in the background.
Taste: Smooth taste with a hint of the wood used in fermentation. There is also a vague hint of vanilla in the background.
Mouthfeel: Thick and syrupy with an almost milkshake like consistency.
Overall: I really love this beer, which is no surprise since I have not met a Dogfish brew I didn’t like. It is very drinkable and the hops are in perfect quantities. The alcohol content slightly exceeds the 12% mark, which is another bonus in my book. No wonder they sell it four packs instead of sixers.
