Thirsty Dog Wulver Bourbon Barrel Aged
Thirsty Dog Wulver is a Scotch Ale/Wee Heavy aged in bourbon barrels for 11 months. I’m not sure if they used to have a non-barrel aged version of this, but this is the only version currently listed on their website. Sweet and malty with a lot of great bourbon flavor. Loads of delicious carmel and vanilla is mixing quite perfectly with the booziness of the bourbon notes. This beer tastes great, but this is an interesting case of another aspect of the beer bringing it down…slightly. Unfortunately this is a very thin and watery beer, a better mouth-feel would bump this up a bit for me. Still worth seeking out and trying if you are into barrel aged scotch ales!
