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.

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!

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.

(7/21/13) It pours a golden amber/orange. The head clings to the glass while it settles to about a half fingers worth of head. The nose is a lot of sweet, tannic bourbon with a bit of vanilla. From beneath the bourbon notes emerge some grapefruity, piney hops that fade with time and recede into the barrel aged depths of this brew. The nose is delightful on this brew. The taste is at first that of a fairly basic hoppy IPA with a bit of maltiness and some barrel notes but it then builds to a finish that is a wonderful blend of the bourbon heat and sweetness along with bitter piney hops. The finish of hops bitterness and bourbon heat and sweet is a really pleasant combination. The mouthfeel is a medium bodied, a bit oily, and fairly "flat" feeling. Overall this was nothing earth shattering (a surprise, I know). The IPA was overshadowed and mostly drowned-out by the barrel aging. However, I found myself enjoying this brew quite a bit. The bourbon notes were pleasant and it was nice to have them in the middle of summer without the heaviness of a stout. The finish and its combination of hop bitterness along with the bourbon heat and sweetness nailed it for me. But overall I would have liked more IPA to come through in this brew.

Comes out of the tap a hazy honey golden, not much head but it does leave some good lacing. Strong hoppy aroma has a bourbon overtone and rich woody and fruity tones. Firm, bold flavor has woody hop, bourbon and fruity notes, the latter being both citrus and pear; a hint of pine makes its appearance. Smooth, viscous and fairly fizzy mouthfeel rounds out a great brew.
