What we have here is Karbach's Yule Shoot Your Eye Out Winter black ale aged in bourbon barrels.
Let's just say.. it's great!
Plenty of chocolate and ginger spices.... all wrapped up in a gentle bourbon blanket... to make you feel warm and cozy.
I am hoping this will be an every Christmas type release. 2012 was the first year for this beer. Sold in bombers and available on tap a few places around Houston.
What a great, great beer. Yule Shoot Your Eye Out is top notch and this simply improves on it.

Fun Series 008. 2013.
A - Poured a deep brown colour with a bid of a muddy look to it. A thin layer of cream coloured head formed and reduced to a thin film over the top of the beer.
S - Spice notes dominate the nose with cinnamon, nutmeg and all spice coming though. Some roast and a hint of chocolate. Not much of the barrel aging is noticeable but there is perhaps a faint hint of oak that I wouldn't have detected had I not been searching for it.
T - A big spice bouquet dominates - ginger, nutmeg and cinnamon. Some roast and chocolate and a somewhat astringent oak flavour are also present. No bourbon or vanilla come through at all. Way too much spice in this one, which almost completely mutes the barrel notes aside from an unpleasant oak astringency.
M - Medium body. Creamy. Light carbonation.
