Double Mountain IRA (India Red Ale)
500 ml bottle purchased and consumed near th brewery in Oregon. 65 IBU A fine looking ale with a brilliant copper colored body and beige head. Malty and hoppy aroma precedes a solidly hoppy flavor with a faint malt in the background. Medium body, carbonation and (for an IPA) bitterness.

Double Mountain Devil’s Kriek (2011-)
375ml bottle. Vintage 2014, bottled 2015. Pours a brown reddish with a white head. Aroma is funky with cherry notes. Taste is sour, very acidic, with cherry notes. Not bad, but too acidic and hence very overpriced. Meh.

Double Mountain Pale Death
Aroma is citrus, grape fruit, earthiness, funk and honey. Taste is roasted malts with tart, honey and lemon grass. Light earthiness and slight peatiness. Well balanced and smooth finish for a pretty big beer. Appearance is a clear gold with small sediment in suspension.

Double Mountain Pale Death - Oak Barrel Aged
16th July 2016
Bright clear gold beer, good cream colour head. Nose of vanilla and vinous fruits. Palate is smooth with reasonable fine carbonation. Smooth malts, light and sweetish. Touches of wood and vanilla. Thin malt cream. Lovely winey fruits, winey crystallised fruits. Touches of pine and fresh orange. Light fruity vinous finish. Delightful and yet another example that flies in the face of this nonsense about barrel aged hoppy beers not working.

Double Mountain 9: The Divine Anniversary Ale
Really nice brown with tons of bourbon character but something doesn't do it for me. I guess my only complaint would be that the body is a little thin

Double Mountain Pale Death - Oak Barrel Aged
Tasting at Matt’s; batch #2
Cloudy golden color, a bit dull, the head is small and frothy. Unexpected but interesting aroma, full of stone fruits, apricots, plums, and vanilla (7.5). Good body strength, lightly sweet, not thick; pale malt flavor, a bit crackery, then the bitterness, the vanilla, the perfume; the final is a bit woody, a bit resiny, not exciting for an IIPA nor for any beer.
Interesting experiment.

Double Mountain Pale Death - Oak Barrel Aged
375mL bottle, pours a cloudy orange with a small white head. Aroma is quite peppery, with woody oak, subdued hop resins, and biscuity malt -- quite peppery and spicy upfront though. Flavour is along the same lines, with peppery and spicy notes upfront, earthy oak, hop resins, and biscuity malt. I never understand why breweries barrel age IPAs. Muted, confused, and uncoordinated, but still pleasant. Not my thing.

Double Mountain The Vaporizer
Sampled at Wilco, pours lightly hazy orange gold with medium white head. Aroma and flavor is Belgian dark fruit, booze, and toasted grain. Really hot tasting for the percent but it may just be the aggressive ash grain aspect of it. Caramel malt and stick my resins. Needs balance

Double Mountain Devil’s Kriek (2011-)
Bottle share, thanks to Toby. Deep red color with a thin ring on top. Nose is chock full of cherries, sweet and sour. Fruity sweet and sour tart flavors, quite a bit of cherry comes through with the funk. Really nice.

Double Mountain 9: The Divine Anniversary Ale
Bottle from Boise Co-op. Wow! Barrel aging adds tons of context to this brown. Normal pour,but aroma instantly raises the game with a nice sweet, woody aroma. Taste echoes the aroma, adding more of the barrel notes, earthy, peaty, minor molasses sweetness. All browns should taste this good.

Double Mountain Devil’s Cuvee Kriek
Shared 12.7 oz. bottle poured to a snifter with a somewhat clear, mahogany color, a modest layer of off white head foam that diminished to a persistent ring, no film, but some clingy patches of lacing. The nose was initially a dose of butter, then fairly expressive, dark cherry, and a touch of sweetness. Medium bodied, with lively carbonation, the taste was similar, less the diacetyl, tart, tangy, and dry, showed some warmth, barrel tannins, but lacked the touch of favorable sweetness that appeared in the aroma.

On tap at Bushwhacker Woodlawn, pours a cloudy yellow, no head. Aroma is very restrained, with barely anything but subtle medium sweet apples. Flavour is bone dry, with lots of dusty dry apple skins. Good for what it is, just not overly interesting. Decent.

On tap at The Loyal Legion, pours a clear golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out loads of pot-like hops, along with biscuity malt. Flavour is like a pot IPA, with loads of herbal dry hopping upfront. Fairly harsh with a pot-like finish. Decent.

Double Mountain Pale Death
On tap. Pours a fairly clear gold with a thin head and minimal lacing. Smells off with heavy scent of aspirin taste. However, it tastes incredible with sharp flavors of tropical fruit. Rare to find such sharp flavors, so many are muted and hidden. Not this gem. The bitterness is mild and the aftertaste is great.

Double Mountain 9: The Divine Anniversary Ale
Oh yeah, pas de niaisage au niveau de cette bière: l’alcool fort est à la fois très présent, mais également très agréable. Le bois est également bien présent.... Je dirais du chêne mais, puisque le type de bois n’est pas clairement indiqué dans la description, je ne m’aventurerai pas sur ce terrain bourré d’échardes. C’est facile à boire comme bière, c’est puissant mais pas trop sucré. C’est moins rond qu’une grosse stout cochonne, mais c’est loin d’être timide. J’aime beaucoup.

Black pour, with a big beige head. Big woody, earthy Aroma.. Loads of Bourbon, dark caramels, molasses and strong toasty, roasty, nutty malts. The body and carb are thinner than expected, mouthfeel is a touch oily. Sweet finish, with a nice sugar pie, roasted nuts finish. Excellent stuff!

Double Mountain Pale Death - Oak Barrel Aged
Bottle from "The Dub". I don’t know; I mean, here’s the thing, there are things I like, and things I hate. Things I like: the oak aroma and flavor are awesome. There’s s subtle hop kick that rounds things out, sort of. The bad: this is barrel aged what? Oh, Pale Death, you say? Shit, you could have told me a completely fucking different beer, and I wouldn’t have known the difference. Point is, this is pretty good, in and of itself, but as a Pale Death variant, so to speak, they fooled me. There’s a nice citrus juice flavor throughout that compliments the oakiness. I can say there are few beers that have as great of anoak flavor. Holy smoke, oak dominates this fucking thing. Citrus and oak is all I get. It’s okay, I guess.

This is my favorite beer of all time. It’s the best fruit beer mixed with the best sour beer, if you like that sort of thing. Double Mountain also has a cherry kreik, which is pretty good, but it doesn’t touch this fantastic peach sour.

Double Mountain Pale Death - Oak Barrel Aged
12 ounce or so bottle. Wax dipped with a pretty cool string type thing that helps you release the wax. The aroma is big tropical fruit. The flavor is really robust sweet resiny tropical hops, mango and passionfruit. Light oak. Very big smooth flavors. Lovely. A phenolic peppery bite. Awesome.

Pours a brown color with a strong alcohol bourbon aroma. Taste is alcohol up front with a chocolate, molasses, and caramel flavor. Taste would be much better but is overpowered by the bourbon alcoholness of the beer. A light bitterness in the aftertaste.
