COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Santo is a black Kölsch, which technically doesn’t exist as a style, but this is as close as we can come to describing it. Essentially it is brewed using a Kölsch recipe with the addition of Munich and black malt. It is light bodied and floral yet with a distinct dark malt flavor. Our goal was to create a dark yet refreshing beer that would pair perfectly with a plate of enchiladas. The label artwork is by Houston artist Carlos Hernandez who is known for his Day of the Dead Rock Star series of paintings and prints.

Pour is blackish/chestnut brown with a thin light tan head...smell is toasty and sweet with a slight nutty character...taste is sweet with some roasty notes but a lot of grainy and cereal sweetness too...finish is quick and with a faintly roasty aftertaste...

Cajun (388) - Lafayette, Louisiana, USA - AUG 7, 2016
Can - Pours dark amber/brown, big head because I poured it that way. Aroma of slightly scorched pancakes, toffee. Flavors of dark roasted grain, hints of toffee, a bit of sweet malt, a pleasant bitter ending. For the style, it was just fine.
