COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Doom is unleashed when Founders’ award-winning specialty Imperial IPA, Double Trouble, is aged in bourbon barrels for four months to create a distinct flavor experience. So, while Double Trouble is brewed to turn your world upside down, Doom is brewed to tear it apart: pungent hops conspire with boozy bourbon notes to send your senses spinning.

tmoreau (2570) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - OCT 28, 2009
On tap at Brixie’s, Brookfield, IL. and snifter served. The barrel-aged version of the Double Trouble. Poured a fairly clear, deep gold color with about a 1/2 inch of off white, bubbly foam to the head, and light spots and streaks of lacing. The aroma was grapefruit, pine and just a touch of malt sweetness. Dominating the flavor was an initial combo of breath stealing, barrel alcohol and sharp, dry, hop bitterness that hits you all at once, and lasts through the finish. Potent, warming and felt like more than 10.5% abv.

Enjoyed at Founders on 8.20.09. Pours a clear golden/amber with a small head. Lovely aroma, oaky, honey vanilla, whisky-like. Oaky vanilla flavor, honey, citrus, grapes, soft caramel, long lasting honey, barrel and some burn, quite boozy, lots and lots of vanilla, typical Founders. Medium bodied with great fizzy carbonation, bright feeling.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 28, 2009
Draught at TJ’s: Pungent aroma of hops, pine, grapefruit, tropical fruit, spruce, and slight caramel malt. Poured amber/gold in color with a medium-sized, creamy, dense, off-white head that diminished but lasted throughout. Slightly hazy. Not sparkling. Excellent lacing. Light to medium sweet and light to medium bitter. Tastes of light alcohol, hops, pine, spruce, light resin, light wood, slight orange, and a hint of coconut. Medium body. Dry texture. Average carbonation. Hops, pine, and light alcohol finish is dry. Mildly alcohol-hot. Very drinkable for 10.5%ABV.
