3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Just elegant. Pours a honey golden color with a very small amount of foam. Scent of bourbon and malts. Hits the palate sweet and finishes slightly bitter with subtle sweetness. Big bourbon flavor with notes of hops and malt. If you love IPA's and bourbon alike... You should not miss this. That is... If you can get your hands on it!

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap a few days ago at Blue Monk in Buffalo, NY. I’d had Double Trouble before but never this one. Certainly interesting, has a sweet feel to it, very boozy. Light on the vanilla and bourbon but it is noticeable. Not strong on the hops, maybe the barrel-aging cuts down on the bite.

I was bored randomly looking for a new liquor store and found one that’s only link was to their facebook page and on that page was a 2 hour old post that said they just got a case of Doom and to hurry up and get it. So I went and got it and got one of the last few bottles that they had left. It pours a clear but murky orange color with a small white head. It smells like bourbon with a hint of sweetness in there. It tastes very hoppy but it hits you kind of like a thick beer and then again with some more bourbon. This is a powerful beer and I like it a lot.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Randomly stumbled across this beer on a stores Facebook.... Pours orange amber with a lacy foam head. Aroma is very sweet. A lot of vanilla and brown sugar with some citrus and pine notes. The flavor is the exact opposite. I have never had a more appropriately named beer. This beer is a jagged mountain range of harsh flavors. It’s brutally hoppy, with a balanced-but-deadly malt signature. Then there’s the bourbon flavor that crushes everything else... This is a deadly beer. After a while the flavors meld into a sweet burbony vanilla flavor with hop and citrus tones. Very very complex. Through it all it maintains a hoppy bitter boozy finish that makes you want more and more. This beer is brutal enough for me.... I don’t think I could handle anymore...

Pour clear orange with a small white head. Aroma is vert pleasant, lots of vanilla and citrus. The flavors are really over powered by the alcohol. It taste exactly like a double ipa aged in bourbon barrels.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Took some lucky timing to get one of these. Bright golden pour with a small white head. Interesting, one of a kind aroma. Boozy with lots of vanilla, tropical, citrusy fruits, coconut and a touch of bourbon on the back. Flavors were sweet up front, vanilla, bourbon, candied hops, more coconut and citrus. Velvety mouthfeel with perfect carbonation. Aside from being a bit hot, this stuff rocked. Wish it was easier to come by.

From a 22 oz bottle shared at Ryan’s. Pours a clear dark gold with a white head. Piney hop aroma. Complex flavors with the bourbon barrel notes dominating. Oaky vanilla, bitter finish.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
April 24, 2013 - bottle from AV3. Clear golden pour with big head that lasted and lacing. Aroma was sweet, malty, some hops and bourbon. Sweet start with the taste that moves into a mild bourbon and finishes with a stronger bourbon and a piney bitterness. Thick to medium bodied and relatively smooth. The finish was just too much pine for me, otherwise was very good. Excited to try another one in the series.
