Missouri

4.38/5  rDev -0.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Clear dark town pour, almost no carbonation except a thin tan halo around the edges. The nose is potent, overwhelming butterscotchy caramely sweetness, little bite. The taste is relatively potent barrel-y sweetness, a bit of prune, tobacco, heavy flavors that coat the palate. The mouthfeel is relatively heavy/syrupy as well, pure caramelized wood sugar sweetness, and almost no bite. Really rounded flavors, masked ethanol, drinkable, and certainly worth trying.

Thirsty Dog Wulver

Exciting

Poured into tulip glass

A: Pours dark murky brown. Almost reminds me of a soda just sitting inside a hollowed log kinda murky.

S: All I smell is bourbon . . . Maybe some dark fruits but mostly all I detect is booze. Pretty intimidating really.

T: Delicious ! Definitely a wee heavy now. Bourbon flavors bursting forth right from the start. Dark fruits such as raisins, figs and dates coat the mouth with a nice touch as this goes down smooth.

M: A big beer with smooth qualities. Drinks easy but you better just sip this beer fellas. Warming for sure but doesn't have that boozy burning you'd expect at the smell.

O: Wonderful beer . . . Period ! Been keeping an eye out for this one for a while now and glad I found it. It didn't disappoint. As a matter of fact it lived up to the hype and expectations I had for it. A bit pricey but I will go get more next pay day (hope it's still available)

Picture this . . . It's a cold, windy and rainy evening. You've just played a tough but rewarding 18 holes on the old course at St. Andrews. The rain still slowly falls as you make your way home winding your way through the meadows and cobble stone trails. The sky is a colorless grey as you spot the smoke rising slowly from the chimney of your stone cabin. The door creeks open . . . You drop your clubs on the floor and stroll to the fireplace to warm your hands for a spell. After the sense of feeling spreads back into your finger tips you fall into your favorite old rocking chair for a night cap. You sit there warming yourself by the fire. Staring into the burning abyss your mind is lost in thoughts of days past.
Wulver is that kind of beer.

This is the perfect beer for that moment.
