Year Round

An unfiltered, unfettered, unprecedented brown ale aged in handmade wooden brewing vessels. The caramel and vanilla complexity unique to this beer comes from the exotic Paraguayan Palo Santo wood from which these tanks were crafted. Palo Santo means "holy tree," and its wood has been used in South American wine-making communities.

This highly roasty and malty brown ale clocks in at 12% abv. A huge hit at our Rehoboth Beach brewpub when first released in November 2006, Palo went into full production at the end of 2007.

At 10,000 gallons, our Palo tank is the largest wooden brewing vessel built in America since before Prohibition (and we have two same-sized oak tanks right next to it).

Just getting started
Look
Dark body, with a small tan creamy head. Very little lacing.
Smell
Sweet, dark candy with figs
Taste
Dark fruit body with a caramel/chocolate sweetness possibly from the wood. The alcohol (12%) is hidden very well with only a small lingering smoke in the back.
Feel
Mouthfeel is light and silky
Drinkability
I think this is a very approachable beer for it being 12%. Very complex flavors with wonderful aroma
