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.

Tastes like year old double trouble. Stale hops, didn’t get much bourbon or heat. Just a double IPA that was left way past its prime.

Missing some of the hop flavor with the aging, but the bourbon notes certainly put this one over the top. A solid method of combining a beer like Double Trouble with the aging process. Wonderfully smooth.

Bottle. Pours orange gold with white head. Nose and taste of bourbon, oak, resin, orange peel, caramel malt, sweet bread and grass. Medium body.

Poured a golden color with aromas of booze, light oak, vanilla, and some hops. Flavors are the same with light hops and bourbon. Decent beer overall, but not a big fan of these bourbon aged dipas....

Bottle. Hazy golden pour with a scattering of white foam and bubbles. Nice mellow bourbon with vanilla over denser sweet malt and moderate pine and bitterness on the back in the aroma. Taste is bourbon and vanilla in the first third but then there’s a transition to a relatively heavy malt profile with denser sweetness and raisin before the bitternesss and light pine closes the loop. Smooth, coating mouthfeel. I like that the bourbon is there but it’s not the entire beer. I also like how the base beer has aged nicely and while missing much of the hop aroma and flavor it initially showcased it presents well with the bourbon. Great beer.

Gold, clear, persistent head. Medium-full body, very flavorfull, long on palate. Medium bitterness with equal malt sweetness, bitter more than sweet finish. Complex hoppy flavors which last to the end. Delicate but very expressive beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Capped 750 from BottleSelect.com. Pours hazy orange/gold with a slight creamy off-white head. Aroma is alcohol and a stone fruit thing. Near full bodied. Flavor is malt, bourbon, stone fruit, bourbon, stone fruit and goes kind of floral in the finish. Moderate heat. Wowser!

Big ol bottle from the taproom. Upon pour into a globe glass color is orange/goldenrod with a nice sticky head. Aroma is unique, piny and fruity of course boozy and slightly sweet with hints of vanilla, charcoal and oak. This one you sip, begins like a typical ipa, then goes all complex on you. Sweet, bitter, honey, floral, vanilla, burnt oak, smoke, booze, hops. It really is one to linger over as you get different things as the temperature changes. My dad and I split this, he enjoyed it thoroughly as well. Beautifully done Founders!

marcus (6486) - Sacramento, California, USA - OCT 21, 2013
Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours hazy blonde with a decent off-white head and a fruity hop aroma. There is a full-bodied caramel malt flavor with some tropical fruit and a significant but not overwhelming bourbon presence.

Big score for Founders at tap and mallet southern tier vs. founders. Steve, Bob and I all got this for our last and enjoyed it. Though we decided at 8 bucks for 8 oz. it was a dollar a sip. Yowser. Grapefruit nose, graham crackers in the palate, dry finish, great.
