On tap at the Daily Growler in Upper Arlington, OH, then later as a more substantial pour at The World of Beer- Brewery District in Columbus, OH. Wulver aged in Cruzan Rum barrels. So lucky to come across this when I was visiting the area.

Pours a murky, hazy dark brown, with a half inch head, and a little bit of lacing down the glass.

Smells include molasses, toffee, vanilla, oak, and rum.

The taste is the same, and unbelievably rich and complex. Molasses, brown sugar, peat-like smoke, toffee, caramel, oak, vanilla, rum, butterscotch, and even a little bit of bourbon sweetness. Quite boozy, with present but well-integrated alcohol.

Very warming, creamy sticky sweet mouthfeel, very rich. Drinkable for the ABV. Full bodied.

A winner, and a nice find here, this was absolutely amazing.
