    Hopefully the Karbach hype has died down a bit after the release of Krunkin and Bodacious. I'd like to grab a bottle of this, but don't really want to feel rushed to go grab a bottle.

    Looked like there was way more of this than the others.

    Heights Kroger has quite a bit of this as well, No need to feel rushed with this one.

    I am sick of chasing beer around. I hope I run across a couple of bottles of it but I will not hunt it down.

    It's not hard to find this one at all. Heights Kroger, Central Market, Downtown Specs.

    Good, I'm off on Wed and am burned out on the mad beer dashes as of lately.

    As good as ever. Think Anchor OSA with more body. One of my favorites from Karback.

    There was much more of the YSYEO produced than Krunkin or Bodacious. There are more batches of it that will be released through the season as well. Great to pick one up now, but the goal here is to have it last, in theory, throughout the season.

    Search just brought this up, anyone have info on bottle count, cost, etc? My favorite movie ever so will have to track this down and would like to know where to start! Thanks!

    I've had friends find it all over Houston already.

    Seems there are going to be several runs of it, so shouldn't be too hard to find.

    No idea on bottle count, but it won't be extremely limited. I think it's a $7-9 bomber, but I haven't grabbed any to confirm.

    It's a damn nice beer for a spiced winter ale. I liked it a lot on tap last year.

    $7.99 at WFM Kirby. It's in the cooler with no limit.

    There will be plenty of this beer to go around.

    Picked up two bombers of this today. Will share it with my brother while watching a Christmas Story as we have been doing for the past 23 years! It's a family tradition damnit!

    It's pretty good, not as spiced as I thought it would be. The Cocoa Nibs leave a nice bitter dark chocolate aftertaste once it warms up and the mouthfeel is silky smooth.

    Am I crazy or does this have the the same base as Krunkin Pumpkin - just spiced up differently?
     
  31. DanzBorin

    DanzBorin Initiate (0) Texas Apr 11, 2012

    I thought Krunkin tasted like a Belgian style Pumpkin. I don't get that from Yule. It has been almost a year since I've had any though.

    My first bottle was amazing, the second one I had last week, I couldn't taste the barrel or wine flavors I did the first time. I think it was because I was pretty buzzed by then.
