Another winner from Karbach.

Very dark brown beer..

The spices are easy to smell.. really good smelling beer.

Caramel is easy to pickup in the taste. I won't lie and say I can pick out all of the individual spices... but man they mix well. This is a super swell beer in my opinion. More complex than Saint Arnold Christmas with a bit more of a bitter finish, though not really that bitter if it makes sense. Probably doesn't, but oh well.

I'll be picking this one up every holiday season. I have a couple of bottes this year. Drinking one and saving another to see how it ages.

Maybe I'll watch A Christmas Story next week with a bottle.

On tap at Queen Vic, Houston TX.

A: Pours a dark ruby brown color/ A two finger beige head forms with excellent retention. Lots of sticky spiderweb looking lace is left behind. This looks great.
S: Toasted malt, chocolate, cinnamon, and spice. Very nice.
T: Oh man, this is great. Big Toasted malts. Chocolate and dark fruits of cherries and plums. Lots of cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice. A pine hop bitterness lingers and brings everything together perfectly.
M/D: A medium to full body. So smooth and velvety. Just a treat to drink. A great winter warmer.

This is just awesome. I love it, and maybe the best Karback has to offer. Exactly what I would expect from a Winter Warmer. Very highly recommended.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from growler to pint glass. dark brown, clear, no head, moderate visible carbonation.

Smells of holiday spice(nutmeg, clove), caramel, nuts, wood.

Tastes nice and warm with spice. Cinnamon and vanilla dominate, very smokey wood, walnuts

Feels sticky and metallic.

Is a good winter warmer, but doesn't stand out in a crowd.

On tap at the Petrol Station in Houston.

The beer pours a dark brown color with an off-white head. The aroma is full of Christmas spices, with quite a bit of cinnamon and some caramel and toffee malt. The aroma is very spicy overall and also has a little bit of alcohol mixed in.

The flavor follows suit. I get a lot of cinnamon and caramel malt, as well as a little bit of nutmeg. There is also some nice raisin notes in the flavor, as well as some other dark fruit such as cherries. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
