-Dogfish Head Palo Santo Marron - A deep, dark, roasty, rich brown ale. At 12% ABV it's not lawnmower beer by any stretch of the imagination. It is a very complex, rich ale with nice solid malt backbone. Definitely a sipping beer. It's aged in Paraguayan Santo Palo wooden tanks which imbue it with hints of caramel and vanilla.

Tallying up the results, it appears that Middle Ages Tilt Kilter came out on top, just nosing out Skull Splitter and Moylan's, and inching past Samuel Adams' Wee Heavy. Those four scored very well, as did Oskar Blue's Old Chub. All of them were relatively big beers (ranging from 8% to 10% ABV) that would be considered sipping rather than session beers.
