Dark pour, tannish head. Aroma is malty, herbal, earthy hops, crisp lagerish notes. Flavor is pretty boring, maybe a tad refreshing, but I don’t really get this beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear dark brown pour with red highlights, a light white-ish head that fades quickly to a bit of sticky spiderweb lacing. Aroma is pretty standard kolsch, with light yeasty tones, slightly metallic malts, some spicyness. Taste is a slight bit of Munich and Vienna malts, light hop presence. Dry finish. Overall, a decent, well made beer, but the whole "dark" or "black" kolsch really doesn’t do it for me.

Pour is dark reddish thanks to Caleb for the pour! Aroma has notes of grass, biscuit, milky yeast with some slight hay and grain notes. Taste is a mix of lemony biscuit, some slight metallic malt notes, hints of yeasty bread, some slight earth notes, hay, finishing a touch sweet. Not too bad, well made but not much to it.

12 oz. bottle served in my Packers lager glass on Thanksgiving- poured a near black with just a slice of maroon color when held to a light source, thin white ring around the glass for a head. Aroma of roasted nuts, faint caramel, and mild chocolate. Hits the mouth with a light-medium body, malt has a distinct Munich feel to it, holds up in the middle, finish mellows out overtime with just a crisp bite from the hops. I can see myself allowing this into my regular rotation in my frig for sessions.

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.
