COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
DDBA is our flagship beer brewed at double strength. It is amazingly similar in many respects to our barrel fermented DBA and possesses everything we love about that beer times two. English caramel malts lend rich toffee character that pairs well with assertive medium toast American oak barrels.

HerrBierkoenig (1380) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JAN 5, 2014
Bottle provided by Cuso, many thanks :). Pours cloudy dark copper liquid. Minimal white-cappuccino head - almost no head. Aroma of vanilla, Christmas pastry, some vanilla and cream liquor- Irish Cream?, orange peel, Curacao liquor. The only deficiency- the aroma could last longer in the nose :) . Very full body, soft to flat carbonation, but strongly drinkable! The alcohol is very well hidden, you have only that heating feel. Taste is vanilla, Christmas spices, simply splendid, candied fruits, sweet. One of my best :) This beer is simply awesome.

Bottle provided by Cuso, many thanks! Wow! The alcohol is hidden but comes forth later and is damn mild and warming. Malt,malt, malt. Caramel, milk chocolate. I sense mild whiskey characteristics. A beer delicacy of the extraordinary!

Very spot on British barleywine, with some bitterness. Put the name of a British barleywine not an imperial bitter. Good peachy appearance, some nice lace. very drinkable, smooth mouthfeel.
