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.

hopdog (8821) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 2, 2009
On tap at the Blue Dog [Lansdale]. Poured a deeper golden color with a smaller sized off white head. Aromas of woodiess/oak, vanilla, citrus, and caramel. Tastes of vanilla (lot more than the aromas), oaky/woodiness, some bourbon, citrus, caramel, and pine. I went back and had another glass of this one!

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.

coyotehunter (667) - , Michigan, USA - SEP 25, 2009
On tap at Founders 9/24/09. Pours a goldish orange with minimal head. Aroma is of Oak, packing tape, some hops and sweet something or another. Taste is quite astringent....Something akin to Devil Dancer with a shitpile of rubbing alcohol dumped in. Rather boozy disaster of a beer considering the source.

TURDFERGUSON (3945) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - SEP 18, 2009
Draught at Tylers in Carrboro. Pours a clear golden with a small white lace. Nose of fresh hops, heavy grapefruit rind, alcohol, rubber cement, regular glue, mild woody weirdness. Messy. Flavor is oak and sweet vanilla upfront, more glue, grapefruit, and booze. Also tasted some peanut butter at some point and no I haven’t consumed peanut butter in months so it wasn’t that. Astringent, paint thinner-like finish. Pretty poor showing if you ask me.

emacgee (3983) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - SEP 18, 2009
UPDATED: APR 25, 2013 Tap at Tylers Taproom in Carrboro. Disclaimer: their draft lines are questionable right now so not sure how this affected the flavor. Pours a soft peach skin amber with a one finger eggshell white head. The nose is pretty nice, citrusy with some grapefruit rind. Nice hop character with some mild forbear to the oak. Flavor shows some oak and phenol upfront, harsh bitterness and tannic combination, American oak?, flavor of vanilla bean. Tannic and astringent on the palate. Flavor is a bit strange and not sure if its the beer or the bar. BOTTLE Pours a very very pretty sharp bright gold with two fingers of sticky white head. Nose shows lots of bourbon and a distinctly creamy vanilla note and touch of citrus. Sharp/strong bourbon character in the flavor with a distinct ’cream soda’ character. Sharp citrus rind shows on the finish and the alcohol is not completely undetectable. Full in body and finish. Enjoyed it.

Served on tap at Founders Brewing Company. Pours a brilliant gold. Aromas are creamy hops and oak. Nice oak flavors, they blend well with the hop deliciousness. Some vanilla builds through the drink as well as some spiced oak, almost a bourbon flavor.

Dan’s Bachelor Party Extended Weekend Rating #47 of 90. On tap at Founders in Grand Rapids. Pours slight hazy, golden. Not nearly as appealing in appearance as it is in taste. Has a strong citrus hop nose and great refreshing hop taste. Very good.

Pint, bartenders mistake, at Raleigh Times. Good aroma, sweet, vanilla and toffee, orange, maybe a little apricot, occasional biscuit. Clean lite brownish orange, Small head, minor lace. Bitter sweet flavor, Big bitter bite with the sweet jumping in late. Heavy body, thick oily creamy mouthfeel, bitter dry finish. Well, I liked it, but I wasn’t wanting another, though that was in part because first bartender poured a full pint. the other part being, as ucusty noted, barrel aged ipa’s just seem some what self defeating. Still it got better as it warmed and the fruitier notes came through.
