It’s getting close to Christmas! This means in Texas, viagra we are finally getting a breeze!! Summer weather hung on alittle too long this year! Now that’s it’s finally cooling off, pills I’m really getting into my dark beer mood.
Oh and Christmas movies! Who doesn’t love a good Christmas movie! One of my favorites (I actually watched this a week or so ago with my family…) A Christmas Story!
So walking through HEB I spotted the infamous lamp on a can and got really excited! It’s the little things…LOL.
Karbach is really good with seasonal brews! On a side note – speaking of Karbach…I don’t know if you heard but Anheiser Busch just bought them out! Read about it here. I’m curious to see the changes coming, this the article says they are retaining as much independence as possible, but want to take advantage of the vast resources Anheiser has to offer. I’m excited to see what Karbach will have to offer in the future. For a craft micro brewery their distribution is pretty good and their product marked with appropriate dot matrix technology, so what changes await us? New brews? Even better stock and availability? Maybe even fancier cans? LOL.
Ok, side note over…now to the nitty gritty…what’s in the can?
Yule Shoot Your Eye Out is a dark ale, even the foam was darker. It was a thicker, heavier beer. The foam poured thick and was slow to dissipate, it even left a frothy rim around the glass.
You could smell the spices right away. It was definitely a heavily spiced, sweet beer, but the alcohol level helped balance it out. The cacoa definitely stood out, like bittersweet dark baking chocolate. Not in a bad way, it melded with the spices pretty well. It was all the flavors you expect around Christmas time! Roasted cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, cacao, with a slight carbonation and a foamy finish made it pleasant to slowly drink while sitting in front of my lit up tree! Due to the sweet, spicy flavor and heaviness this isn’t a brew that I could sit and drink the entire four pack in one sitting, but still an enjoyable after dinner “night cap.” Almost like a boozy dessert! Who doesn’t like to finish dinner with a little chocolate!
I think this is my favorite design of all of Karbach’s cans! And as Karbach always reminds us: “Recycle Dammit!”
I want to end this post with wishing all of you a Merry Christmas and provide you a little festive music to listen to while trying this lovely sweet season beer. I hear it’s limited quantity, so try it while you can!
