Karbach Yule Shoot Your Eye Out Winter Warmer is spicy seasonal beer, dark brown in color, and with a nose of nutmeg, clove, chocolate, and various holiday spices. The beer produces a solid head of foam that doesn’t quit and stays with you all the way to the bottom of the glass.
This winter warmer tastes as spicy and complex as the nose leads you to believe- even more so. I get flavors of caramel malt, ginger, orange peel, chocolate, nutmeg, clove, allspice, and other assorted holiday spices. There is some dark roast in there as well, some plum, and some cherries. The flavors come together quite nicely in the finish where they blend in just the right manner to smooth out some of the initial bitterness. The mouthfeel is creamy and you get an aftertaste that is satisfying and dessert- like in many ways.
Complex beers are common during the winter season and this beer from Karbach brewing is certainly a complex brew. I like that I continue to discover more taste sensations with each sip and I even had some fun sharing a bottle with another person and comparing notes.
This dark ale is brewed and sold for only a limited time, so consumers need to seek it out quickly while supplies last. The search will be worthwhile, as this is a complex and warming beer that makes a great choice for a cool winter day.
