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.

Bottled. Brown dark wood pour. White head. Toffee bourbon smell. Strong nalts. Booze and sweetness. Pretty good but very liqueur fish.

ericdevin (988) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - SEP 10, 2013
Draft at 16 Tons, Eugene. Pours a dark brown caramel-like color. Little to no head. Aroma toffee, caramel, roasty notes, booze. A sharp oakiness, too. Body medium, thin booziness, surprisingly thin. Finish charred oak, brusque. Lovely.

Scipio (761) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - SEP 10, 2013
Pours a hazy reddish orange with a thin, light beige head. Interesting malty aroma consists of caramel, cherry, vanilla, and bourbon. Its is balanced well without a dominant impression. The taste loses some of the maltiness. Here I find a lot of cherry and bourbon, spruce hops, bread, and light vanilla and apple. To me, the fruity flavors are quite noticeable. LIght sweetness, and a short aftertaste of bourbon and cherry. Medium to light in body, a thin, almost watery texture, and about average carbonation. Fairly easy to drink. Nothing wrong with this one.

maley1 (909) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 9, 2013
On tap, clear mohagany pour with small off white head. Aroma of bourbon, cherries, vanilla, caramel and oak. Taste of toffee, vanilla, bourbon, oakiness, hint of gran marnier, and roasted coconut. ABV a little hot until it warmed up closer to room temps. A little less of the bourbon taste would have scored this much higher, very good beer nonetheless.

Crash (532) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - SEP 8, 2013
Two barrels and neither of them were very good. There just wasn’t much good to say about this beer. Aroma, not good. Appearance was sub par. Taste was so so at best. After taste was no good.

charule (1822) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 7, 2013
Bottle from LUSH. Poured quite dark amber with moderate white head full of sediment. Strong bourbon barrel aroma, stings a lil. Quite smooth balanced bourbon taste, hides booze well. Good stuff.

Hair6a11 (1436) - Illinois, USA - SEP 5, 2013
Bottle; Pour is fairly clear mahogany with a modest, fine bubbled, off white head in this glass; retention is fairly poor, honestly - leading to a ring and light spotting. The nose is nice, overall - barrel treatment comes through fairly heavily , with some earthy vanilla notes present here - moving to toffee and dark fruits, really, while revealing a hint of booze that is slightly off putting. The flavor profile reveals a fairly thin base beer as far as the mouthfeel goes; its assertively sweet (caramel, toffee, vanilla), while moving to dark fruits, toasted breads, modest bitter hop notes, with a tingling sensation from the booze here ; this one , i feel, could use a bit of age. I enjoyed it, overall.

Cavalier92 (4) - Moorestown, USA - SEP 5, 2013 does not count
On tap in Philly Dark amber with off white head and no lace. Bourbon nose with a bit of cereal. Mouthfeel is a little thin for all the malt, toffee and boutbon flavors. No heat, hides the alcohol
