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.

Bottle at homebrew club meeting. Pours a mostly clear deep amber with a stiff off-white head. Nose is lush and with some marshmallow notes, moderate sweetness & caramel, subtle oak. Huge improvement over the original dba, imo. Big and creamy palate, very well balanced for how sweet it starts. Drying finish. Pretty superb stuff.

Mahogany pour with a thick soapy off white head with lots of sticky lacing. First sniff was a bit of booze vanilla oak and touches of maybe a bourbon and some light syrups. Full well coated palate nicely creamy. Flavor is like a buttery rich esb. Syrups butter and a lightly bitter toffee finish.

2oz bomber thanks to Jimmie. Poured a hazy dark orange amber body with an average sized foamy off white head. Aroma of English toffee, old caramel, alcohol, old wooden barrels, slight licorice, fruity overall. Medium mouthfeel, softer carbonation, and a lingering aftertaste. Flavor of toast, English toffee, caramel, dry soda bread. Solid.

Thanks for this one, Dak. Shared with the Tampa crew. Pour is light brown, not much for a head. Aroma is tons of honey, bourbon, caramel and toffee. Boozy. Taste follows suit with plenty of caramel malt and light vanilla and bourbon. Oily mouthfeel. Pretty nice, as expected from FW.

This was another solid offering from Firestone Walker. It smelled like stale honey-nut cheerios. The taste was full of dry bitter oak, honey and spicy alcohol. Pretty heavy, malty and fun to drink.

Bottle poured into glass. Can’t remember who brought this bottle, but thank you! By this point of the night my palate was starting to get shot, but I tried my hardest to maintain. The hops still lingered but weren’t up your face, there was more malt presence then anything. I good beer but nothing super special.
