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.

12 oz bottle pours a cloudy brown with a thin skim of tan head. Little bit of bubbly lace.

Nose is rich on the bourbon barrel, tons of wood and coconut. Vanilla and wood mix well with strong caramely malt.

Oh my goodness...this is soooo good. The smooth malt blending with the woody bourbon is off the hook! After just a couple sips, this might be the best scotch ale I have ever had. One of the smoothest 12%'ers for sure, at the very least. I wish I could write more, but I already finished my 6 oz sample...want moar.
