4.38/5  rDev +6.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

Appearance: Dark maple in color, like a solid DIPA should be

Smell: Slightly sweet, with a hint of the red wine

Taste: Amazing. Slight hop bite but overall, incredible smooth from the barrel aging. Finishes with a sweet, merlot-like end.

Mouthfeel: Not too syrupy nor too carbonated. Pretty ideal, honestly.

Overall: 4.5

This beer is exactly what you expect when you hear "DIPA aged in red wine barrels". Incredibly smooth, definitive notes of the red wine, the slightest of hop bites offset by the aging but still present.

I live in Houston and I have an extensive array of local brews; I think Karbach is hands down the best coming out of Texas and I hope they start widening their distribution beyond Houston and SE Texas.

Serving type: bottle

4.01/5  rDev -2.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Serving Type: 22 oz bottle poured into stemmed pilsner (beer tulip) glass.

Appearance: Frothy, pale off-white foam. Fair lacing. Deep, slightly hazy reddish amber hue.

Smell: Full and malty, caramel and berries. Slightly boozy - almost fruitcake?

Taste: Sticky, sweet malt base with fruity wine notes. Dry, bitter finish initially. Oak and wine emerge in finish as it warms.

Mouthfeel: Slightly sticky, smooth and with medium body. Soft to moderate carbonation.

Overall: Big and full, but much mellower than its Rodeo Clown base; much of the hop character recedes to background spice and bitterness. A nice sipper with interesting wine flavors and aromas evolving as it warms.

Notes: F.U.N. Series 010, 2014.

Off white head. Lots of lace. Walls. Color is a clear copper.

Flavor profile: a lot of grapes, tannins, and wine flavors. Very floral and herbal. Grapefruit and citrus. Hop resiny. Caramel malts. A bit of booze as it warms.

Mouthfeel: sticky and bitter. Medium to full bodied. Ends sticky.

Overall, another fun beer from karbach. Hops still present which I really enjoyed. I liked the wine flavors.

Serving type: on-tap
