Pours a small but creamy tan head. Retention is fine, settling into a thin topper. Brew is a dirty nut brown, barely allowing light through at all, with purplish-red highlights.

Boozy, port wine-like aroma. Oak features prominently, as does a smooth, vanilla hint of bourbon, all riding a wave of dark fruity malts and grains.

Flavor follows, but it's extremely delicate and balanced. Unbelievably smooth. Bourbon shows up a little up front, but rides heaviest in the back. Prunes and figs, dark bread, vanilla, and a woody, mild oak presence all around. Thick flavors. Actually a nice balancing bitterness that's easy to miss.

Extremely smooth beer, with the tiniest fizz up front, and no sting. Alcohol heat comes pretty strong on the back-end, but it doesn't seem near 12%. Medium to medium-full mouthfeel, with a long, extremely sticky finish.

This is one hell of a beer. It's incredibly dense with flavors, due in no small part, surely, to the masterful incorporation of the barrel.

This light brown brew was poured into a brandy snifter. The head was off-white, thin and wispy, and disappeared into a halo rather quickly. When held up to the sun, the body appeared ruby red. The aroma is sweet with, vanilla, bourbon, and straight alcohol.

To me, this tastes like sweet, vanilla soda bread first, then bourbon. It is warming going down. The vanilla stands out and there is a faint raisin aftertaste. The mouthfeel pairs well with the overall beer. Light carbonation, that is dense, and quickly disappears. This thing has some heat and energy.

This beer has some power. I like them strong, and Wulver has some all-around, strength.
