BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Saint Arnold Brewing Company
Texas, United States
saintarnold.com

Style: Kölsch

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.70%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / 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.

Drank it straight from the brewery taps.
Mahogany color with a thick thin head with decent retention.
Aroma of creamy chocolates and earthy hops.
Likewise nice creamy chocolate flavor, mild tangy fruitiness and earthy hops, and roasted malts.
Light body with medium carbonation.
This is definitely an improvement from the regular Kolsch version, more fun.
