COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Doom is unleashed when Foundersí 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.

Bomber to glass mug. Pours a copper / amber color and has the scent of bourbon / sweetness. Nice malty backbone, with hop flavors subdued by the booze / malts. Pretty good. Iím not going nuts over it, though.

750 ml bottle and draft at Big Beers and barley wines. Pours a hazy orange amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have a good dose of bourbon, citrus, resin, wood, vanilla. Medium plus sized body that melds the barrel and the beer pretty well. Sure the hops are faded, but I kind of like this one.

Bottle: Thanks, Chris! Vibrant amber body with exceptional clarity, topped with a frothy, foamy, fine-bubbled, bright white head that leaves lots of nice, webbed lacing on the way down. Aroma is lovely; itís like shoving your nose directly into a pineapple. Extreme tropical fruit blast with onset notes of residual sweetness & warm vanilla from the barrel. Not much bourbon explicitly, but the pineapple & mango presence is wonderful. The taste, however, is a different story. Even though the nose didnít show it at the, the flavor is a bourbon bomb up front... Itís not "hot", shockingly enough, just full of nothing but bourbon flavor. Very light notes of oak, vanilla, & pineapple with a timid, back-end leafy hop character. Warmth definitely brings out more notes of tangerine & mango with the pineapple, but the bourbon presence on the palate is disappointing, especially after the incredible aroma. Disappointed to say the least, I expected excellence after the nose but was sorely let down. Not awful but not great, either.

75cl, as Founders Doom, new exclusive American brew Anno 2013, thx to Secret Santa!, very complex bitter brew, alcoholic/bitter and slightly fruity/woody, heavy, yet balanced, cloudy, good head, good brew, yet expensive!

tmongoose (1089) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - FEB 4, 2014
bomber poured clear bright orange color with minimal white head. lots of foamy lacing around the glass. the aroma of lots of hops sweet and sticky and bourbon barrel with traces of vanilla and booze. the flavor is double trouble through and through with that bourbonesque flavor, hints of vanilla, lots of hops and bourbon...about 45 degrees not real clue so the flavors are very strong. well done founders.

22oz bottle served in a snifter. The bourbon barrel aging doesnít really add anything the IPA - and somewhat detracts from the Double Troubleíness of it all.

Strife21 (98) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 28, 2014
pours hazy golden with light white head smells of bourbon and toffee tastes of sweet toffee, malt, smokey and has a huge bourbon presence with some slight bitterness on the finish from the hops. medium body, light carbonation. Really good but most the india pale ale characteristics get washed away.

Bottle... Not fresh. :/ my parents live in gr so they got the bottles and I picked them up for Christmas. And still have one in the cellar... Anyway. Aroma is like a stale orange or so. Apricot. Yeah thereís hints of bourbon. Oaky. Looks fine. Hazy sunset orange. Good lacing. Taste is like the smell. Orange. Bourbon. Oaky. Grapefruit... Apricot... Solid palate. Itís a little aggressive but pretty smooth overall. The flavors sort of mash together.... A good beer overall but really not mind blowing. The IPA notes and the oaky bourbon notes really sort of mash together. Unique but Iím not sure if itís working 100%.

This didnít work for me, too much stuff going on that doesnít really work together to make an enjoyable beer. That has to be taken into account when designing a beer, do the flavors help or hurt each other, and is there a flavor profile you are trying to make. Barrel aged IPA or DIPAís inherently to not work, the caramel bourbon flavor from the barrel cuts out the hop character and combines to make something that doesnít satisfy either palate.

pushkinwow (1842) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 31, 2013
On tap at the 2013 Capones Black Friday event. Dark amber with white head. Strong buttery bourbon aroma with vanilla, oak and bourbon, the hops have faded off and become more muted but you still get a strong citrus and resin combination. Moderate carbonation and full body, manages to be both sweet and quite bitter at the same time.

750ml bottle shared in GTMW13 line. Bourbon forward, but really grows on you. Really balanced and drinkable for the ABV. Caramel bourbon, but a nice piny hop balance too. Creamy, pleasant body. Well done.
