This beer is very good. As a comparison to Founders BWB, I have to say it falls short. For me, the bourbon is a little too pronounced in this beer and the mouth feel is a little less creamy then BWB. All in all, this is a fantastic beer that I would buy again. A sipper Wee Heavy with a nice barrel aging touch but when lined up against BWB, my bench mark...it's second best.

Bottom Line: Excellent beer.

Served in a wine glass at District Tap House.

Pitch-black liquid under an off white, fluffy head. Persists well. 4.5

Oaken and tobacco-heavy on the nose. Bourbony notes like sour mash. Mellow vanilla notes. 4.25

True to nose with the tobacco, oak, vanilla, but Caramel notes emerge too. There's a subtle smokiness and peaty that suggest a good scotch. The way the malts complement the scotch character here is impressive. 4.5

Barrel-aged but not a trace of booze. Smooth and caramel-like with the slightest carbonation that seems perfect. 4.5

This beer puts the scotch in scotch ale.

This wolf can hunt. Split with the wife from 12oz into stem less wine glasses. Looked great. Nose was amazing, bourbon, vanilla, caramel. Vanilla & oak hints and nice bourbon (balanced though) on the tongue. Velvet mouthfeel. Wulver dominated Backwoods in my reviews. Need to do a side-by-side. Get it. Get it, now.
