3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Saint Arnold Santo has a medium, off-white head and a dark copper, yet clear and bubbly appearance. There is a decent amount of lacing left behind. Aroma is of mildly sweet and spicy brown bread, and the flavor is of dark-roasted malt and coffee, plus some very slight chocolate. I detect no bitterness, but there may be some spice from the yeast. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Saint Arnold Santo finishes dry, mild, and highly drinkable. Overall, this is a pretty plain and dull beer. It’s worth trying, though. RJT

12oz bottle I had in Dallas. Pours dark brown with light tan head. Aromas of chocolate, nuts, caramel, and some light yeast and hops. Flavors of cocoa, yeast, roasted nuts, spicy hops, and some yeast. Carbonation is sharp. Refreshing brew and nice surprise.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thanks a bunch to Terminus for picking this one up for me. It pours clear mahogany brown with a tan head. The aroma has light cocoa, nuttiness, spicy hops and an overall cleanness. It has a medium body that’s crisp and refreshing with frothy semi-sharp carbonation. The flavor starts with clean spiciness, not bitter roasty malt, cocoa, hazelnut and cream. The finish adds a bit of snappy grassiness. Very enjoyable.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A deep mahogany brown with a nice tan head and moderate lacing. The nose is primarily roasted malts with notes of grain. The taste is roasted malt with notes of nuts. Hops are not predominate. There is a pleasing charred aftertaste. The mouthfeel is medium and smooth. A very nice beer, by itself or with food.
