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.

Draft in Houston. Dark brown in color. Medium head. Aroma is light with some caramel and roast malts. Taste is slight roast malt with some caramel malt notes. Medium light body. Fairly easy to drink. Somewhat creamy texture. Not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz Flasche. Dunkelbraunes Bier mit beigem Schaum. Röstmalz und Hopfennoten. Süffiger Geschmack leicht rauchig. Die Brauerei nennt es ein dunkles Kölsch. Irgendwie passend!

Pershing (562) - Garland, Texas, USA - OCT 22, 2015
Pours dark brown with a thin head that diminishes fast. Sweet aroma of toffee and dark malt. Thin body and easy to drink. Nice hop to malt balance with this one. Easy to drink with food and not very feeling. Makes a good session brew.

Nekronos (4175) - Xalapa, MEXICO - OCT 18, 2015
Nothing special but well brewed. Watery and not too special. Easy to drink too in a gathering.

Bottle at Skinny Rita’s, Houston. Dark reddish body with large head. Nose is smoky, fruity. Taste is also malty, with caramel and toasty notes. Enjoyable. Went well with my taco’s.

Imbockinsxtx (82) - Big Bend (Benavides, TX), Texas, USA - SEP 15, 2015
Poured from a bottle into a pint glass a very dark coffee like beer. I got a slight hint of chicory toffee coffee and caramel candy....exciting can’t wait to taste it....poured a descent head which dissipated almost immediately....yep...the flavors are exactly what I smelled...very bold very sweet effervescent and curiously a little refreshing for a full bodied beer finishes well...no adjunct funk just smooth bold organic straight ahead BEER....if you like that style grab one...I would imagine it would be a great cold winter day kinda beer....CHEERS...

6 pack drunk from bottles whilst arguin’ politics. Went down fast and smooth, as good as the conversation. Solid easy to drink taste. Some sweetness. Would buy again
