Bottle. Murky mahogany. Heavy all spice and cinnamon aroma. Same notes in flavor. A little to heavy on the spice for me.ben4321 (6840) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 3, 2013

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.

Spices??? Plural? Or one. Lots of all spice in flavor and aroma. Otherwise an attractive dark brown leathery color.

Pours black with a lasting tan head. Sweet spice aroma. Notes of banana bread. Taste is busy but lacks depth. Notes of mint, herbs and ginger. Finish is a bit dull with spices. JHillAustin49 (69) - round rock, Texas, USA - NOV 18, 2013
