DDBA is our flagship beer brewed at double strength. It is amazingly similar in many respects to our barrel fermented DBA and possesses everything we love about that beer times two. English caramel malts lend rich toffee character that pairs well with assertive medium toast American oak barrels.

GG (2332) - NorCal, California, USA - NOV 20, 2013
22oz bottle - The beer pours out a hazy amberish/dark orange body with reddish hues at the edges, with a tight, creamy 1" head. A really nice aroma full of candy-ish malts, vanilla, brown-sugar, bourbon and wood notes. Loads of dark-fruit, caramel, toffee, and a touch of vanilla in there. A long, boozy, sweet finish with some lingering...I guess thickness? A really nice beer, but quite overpriced.

Vaiz (4107) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - NOV 20, 2013
Bottle from the brewery, at home. Beautiful clear amber to red pour, thin off-white head. Aroma is full of bourbon, leather, caramel and some alcohol. Flavor is sweetish, alcoholic and smooth. Well balanced and very clean. Subtle while still strong. Great brew.

pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 4, 2013
On tap at northdown... Pours a slightly transparent medium brown and topped with a creamy white head... Aroma of toasted coconut caramel and deeper toffee malt... Sweet toffee, vanilla, and toasted coconut. Sweeter somewhat syrupy mouthfeel. Nice flavor profile just a bit too sacharine for me but that’s what I was expecting.

The aroma is very boozy with caramel and butterscotch. The appearance is amber with a medium head. The taste is like the aroma the palate is smooth. Overall this is a great beer.

The beer is a step above to what a double beer should be. Has a thick syrup palate and with a rich flavor with grain and fruit flavors. Rich but but not too bitter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Foxbush (1623) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - OCT 26, 2013
Draft at the Brewery Tasting Room The ale poured a clear golden color with a small off- white head and limited lacing. The aroma was complex with sweet bourbon and oak. The taste of ale and hints of bourbon are perfect. The medium body ale had average carbonation. The higher alochol was well deguised. At the finish you have buttery bourbon with some bitter citrus. Great beer.

Looks like unfiltered cognac. Thin white ring around the glass for head. Tastes like caramel. Smells like caramel, water and wood. Smooth for its strength, but just too caramelly sweet to realistically enjoy. This guy behind me just said its aged in "barley wine barrels" for ten years. I think he’s as full of shit as I am.

Bottle. Dark copper with an off white head. Aroma is oak and fruit. Taste is buttery bourbon barrel, citrus fruit and lots of caramel malt. Smooth full mouthfeel. Solid.
