Brewery Insights: Palo Santo Marron is an unprecedented brown ale aged in wooden vessels with vanilla and caramel notes. It offers a highly roasted malt and unique oak flavors. Palo Santo means “holy tree,” and its wood has been used in South American wine-making communities
Overall Score: 8.1
Palo Santo Marron has a deep, dark brown color reminiscent of a stout. The high roasted malt shines to provide a bold and flavorful palate. This is a unique beer that will please the stout and brown ale community. The mouthfeel is moderate to heavy and closer to a stout than a brown ale. Palo Santo deserves the moniker of the ‘holy tree’ as the oak flavors are distinct and bring the rich palate to a smooth and delicious finish. This is a great beer.
Palo Santo Marron is the perfect balance between a stout and brown ale. It’s like finding a way to blow lines of coke off a toilet seat while slamming a bunch whiskey shots, all to find an equilibrium between uppers and downs. Be careful though, too much coke and booze could put you 45 miles in the wrong direction, and suddenly you’re in Forest Lake, MN (shoutout to our Degenerate buddy). Palo Santo is a sensational beer from a great brewery. Grab one of these and skip the eightball of coke and Cheers Degenerates! (or grab the coke, we don’t give a shit)
