Itís with heightened awareness that one attempts a maneuver as daring as the Tailslide, and with equal poise that we bring you this bourbon barrel-aged version of our popular 4th Anniversary Ale. Originally crafted as a doubled version of our alt-bier with a percentage of barrel-aged stout blended in, our Dopplesticke is now 100% conditioned in barrels to fully complement its substantial caramel malt profile. Abundant whiskey aromatics and spicy flavors blend pleasantly with the delicate esters of this strong ale, resulting in an ambitious balance of beer and spirit.

[2/12/15] Draught at The Sycamore in San Francisco. 2013 edition. Black with a nice creamy head. Lovely aroma full of chocolate, bourbon, vanilla and coconut. Sweet flavor with malt, caramel, chocolate and vanilla. Full-bodied and rounded. Great.

On tap at the Beer Baron. This one pours a dark hazy amber color with an off white head. The aroma has huge notes of maple, bourbon and caramel. The flavor is very sweet and boozy with big vanilla, oak and bourbon barrel influence. Background notes of dark fruit and butterscotch. Very heavy handed. Not much else going on besides the big booziness you get from every other big barrel aged beer. On that though, it delivers.

bhensonb (13622) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 24, 2014
Tap at Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours fairly dark brown with a beige head. B/V aroma. Full bodied or nearly. This on is strongly bourbon. With a treacle trail. Definitely on the brown sugar side. It may need to age a bit. Must have been a "hot" barrel. Rating this on the bourbon! Cause the beer is sort of submerged.

Pours a hazy dark brown. Sipped at the Beer Belly - One Night Stand. I get loads of coconut off of this one in both aroma and taste. A little bit of wood notes in the back too. This is very smooth. Silky.

brokensail (15271) - San Leandro, California, USA - DEC 9, 2013
On tap @ Strong Ale 2013. Hazed/murky amber pour with a khaki head. Maple syrup, caramel, and whiskey on the aroma. Nice vanilla, raisin, and a touch of toast. Flavor is very sweet and malt forward. Maple syrup, caramel, and vanilla. Lots of raisin, whiskey, and dark fruits. Well rounded sweetness.

Tap at Raglan in OB. Murky medium brown with a two finger creamy beige head, good retention. Big boozy sweet vanilla and bourbon up front, even some French vanilla ice cream richness. Plenty of caramel and some light nuttiness in the nose, a little chocolate. Flavor doesnít quite have the dessert quality to it, as the booze gets a little rougher and brash, but only compared to the aroma. Still vanilla, less ice cream. I was afraid this was going to be a little sweet, but the alcohol and barrel have done a good job drying things out. Semi-dry finish, bitterness peaked at a 2-3. Low carbonation with a medium full body. Very heavy handed on the barrel and bourbon.

badlizard (5533) - Berkeley, California, USA - SEP 26, 2013
On tap. Cloudy brown with a thin creamy off white head. Big multigrain bread, molasses, rye whiskey and dough aroma and taste with an oaky bourbon finish and a chewy medium bodied palate.

GT2 (9421) - Oceanside, California, USA - AUG 7, 2013
Tap at Provisions Market. Murky deep red pour. Weaker foam. Thinner body than expected given abv. Nose is rich butterscotch and buttery chocolate. Rich bourbon barrel. Taste canít quite match the intense nose and comes off as watery and papery. More like sweet tea, thin.

1st rating on tap at H24. Dark Brown pour with really tiny beige head. Aroma is lots of bourbon barrel and oak. Taste is initially pretty boozy and finishes with some vanilla and coconut. Pretty tasty brew.
