I await the arrival of this beer like some people do for the new air jordans. I stalk the liquor store managers and store personnel hoping to get insights on when this beer would arrive. After waterboarding a few I got one to crack and he finally took be to the back and showed me the 5 cases they had available. I bought one case and I'm doing my best to make it last even though the beer comes in 22 oz bottles.
Pros: outstanding flavor that isn't too pumpkin/spice heavy but enough to know you've got a fall specialty brew on your hands. Alcohol content is stout but you don't taste it when you are drinking it. As dark as it is, it doesn't have a stout consistency, its a very easy to drink dark beer.
Cons: price ($8 for a 22 oz bottle) and it's only available in late September, early October. It's so good you don't want to share it, but since it's in a big bottle you feel obligated. Limited production, so once it's gone, it's gone. Only available in Texas...for now.

Pours out a dark brown with a thick tan head at first. Smells of toast and spices. No Belgian yeast to speak of. Smells a bit boozy. No Belgian yeast in the flavor either. Not much pumpkin either. Slight spices. Lots of sweetness. Obvious toasty malts. I get a graininess that's becoming a signature flavor profile of Karbach. Mouthfeel is decent but could have more smoothness. Not really into this.
