Santo is definitely a welcome change from the usual offerings from Texas breweries. Saint Arnold has produced another winner with this one.

Fairly thin tasting in all respects. A bit of nuts, caramel and malt. not very exciting, but not a drain pour either.

Dark with a good head. Surprisingly unique - a very light beer but also has a lot of the deep toasted malt flavor along with it.

On tap at the brewery. Pours with a clear deep brown hued body with a small, off-white head. Aromas are grassy, bready, grainy, lightly floral. A hint of nutty roasted notes, maybe some munich? Clean as far as the fermentation goes. Flavors are bready, grainy, grassy, toasty and a bit nutty. A bit of a chlorophyll/floral-plant-matter note. Medium to lively bubbles and a bit thin.

Surprising change from their normal beers. Great addition to the Saint Aronld family and definitely worth trying.

12 oz bottle. Pours very dark brown and opaque with a small light tan head. Nose is a faint aroma of German malts and some light chocolate. Taste is light maltiness with a hint of roastiness and chocolate. A bit overcarbonated. Fades on the end. Not bad-maybe you’d order one with a batch of tamales or enchiladas but I wouldn’t drink several of these at a session.

On tap at Flying Saucer Houston. Pours a clear brown with a tan head that laces and dissipates to the edges. Aroma has some dark grains, stale dark bread and a hint of grass. Flavor has notes of dark bread with a hint of chocolate and underlying hay and grass.

Bottle from pikapp327. Medium brown pour with a tan head. Aroma is very roasted and floral. Taste is tangy and bready upfront, but finishes with a roasted chocolate flavor. Not bad, but kinda weird.

3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Aroma is off. Has a stale unpleasant smell to it. Pours cola colored with little or no lingering head. Taste is toasty malts, with just a hint of nuts and chocolate. Thin mouthfeel, but i think thats by design All in all the beer is a study in contrast. Taste is good, but other components detract. I can see how is would pair well with some nice TexMex though.
