3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
F.U.N. Series #008, 2013- This version is their "Yule Shoot Your Eye Out" winter seasonal that has been Aged in Bourbon Barrels. The beer pours a dark brown color with an off-white head. Some spotty lace left behind. Aroma is full of Christmas spices, cinnamon and some caramel, toffee malt, some vanilla and wood from the barrels. The flavor follows suit. I get a lot of cinnamon and caramel malt, as well as a little bit of nutmeg. There is also raisin notes in the flavor, as well as some other dark fruit. The wood and vanilla come through but dont mix that well, kinda strange and slightly off-putting.

Spice, fruit, malt. Dark brown/black with a quickly dispersing cream colored head. More spice, cocoa, fruit. Glassy smooth, sweet. Very slight bitterness on the very end. This is a really nice beer.

Bottle. Murky mahogany. Heavy all spice and cinnamon aroma. Same notes in flavor. A little to heavy on the spice for me.

Location: Draft at Hay Merchant, 12/3/13
Aroma: The aroma is full of Christmas spices, cinnamon, chocolate, etc.
Appearance: It pours a dark brown color with a decent tab head on it
Flavor: The taste is much the same, heavy on the spice, some cake, plenty of sweetness
Palate: The body is medium, it has a decent feel, and a long finish on the mouth
I thought this was a pretty darn solid spice beer. Another really enjoyable offering from Karbach. This is pretty cool. Also, great name.

Good seasonal ale. Dark, espresso hue. Soft ,lacy head. Sugary notes. A bit spicy. Smooth washdown. Seems like it needs to hike up on the abv level. A pretty basic ale. Typically fall/winters need an extra kick that separates one brew from another. Yule needs to integrate something smokey or perhaps using more distinct spices to play on sweet and bitter flavors. Good but not great. Buy it. Say you did buy then keep shopping around for a better Christmas Ale.
