An epic brown ale. Lush and enjoyable, now this beer ages with the best of them.

Four 12 fl. oz bottles. 12% alc. by vol.

An unfiltered, unfettered, unprecedented BROWN ALEaged in handmade wooden brewing vessels. The caramel and vanilla complexity unique to this ale comes from the exotic Paraguayan Palo Santo wood from which these tanks were crafted. At 10,000 gallons each, these are the largest wooden brewing vessels built in America since before Prohibition. It’s all very exciting. We have wood. Now you do too. GOOD MOOD BEER.

BEER LOVER’S REVIEWS:Dark Brown, poured almost no head that turned to film right quick. What i would expect a Caribbean toffee-rum to smell like (If it existed). I actually want to smell this more than drink it. It’s so good. A hint of Bourbon’s sweetness. A lot of wood, and malts. Not up to par with the smell, but still very appealing. Good consistency, not too thick, nice boozy coating. One is enough, which is fine. This should be savored not chugged. Overall a fantastic beer. DOGFISH HEAD scored a winner. (Detroit, Michigan).

BEER LOVER’S REVIEWS: I get that creamy dark roasted fruity smell, I guess from the hops and Palo Santo Wood? Plus some earthy wood and vanilla in the back. This is exactly how the brewery describes it. The taste is very thick and creamy with that Scottish Ale. Caramel quality to it with that dark roasted malt and then ending with a subtle vanilla that mixes in with the chocolate type taste and with the oak sharp wood taste. It also had a bit of hop that mixes in with the wood taste as well. There are so many flavors in this beer, it will never get boring. You also get some alcohol burn as well. Don’t let anyone tell you this beer doesn’t have hop in it. Wood in beer especially with the caramel rich dark malts is a perfect pair. trust me, This beer is the most unique tasting beer I’ve ever had. ( NEW JERSEY ).
