COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Beautiful dark amber color, with red shades, and small head. Nice plain aroma of oak barrel. Good body strength, although the mouthfeel is not heavy; good caramel flavor, semi-sweet, with some toffee, light pleasant nuttiness, correct bitterness, some vanilla/wood presence.
A good one as usual; appealing also to my non-beer-drinking friends.

On tap at Firestone Walker Barrelworks. A clear amber colored beer with a small, off-white head. The aroma has lots of dark dried fruits, some faint spiced notes, alcohol notes and peach hints. Full bodied, soft and a bit too warming on the palate. Lasting flavor with alcohol, loads of wonderful dark dried fruits, a hint of vanilla and a little sweetness. Some bitterness too it seems. Yet another wonderful one. 130809
