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.

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.

Slightly hazy dark copper pour with a beige head that fades down to a ring. Strong caramel and vanilla aroma with booze in the background. Taste again is strong caramel, with vanilla, some sweet fruits, and a bit of booze. Slick palate. Nice beer.

Dr_Fellini (1020) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - DEC 25, 2013
Bottle to glass. Pours a cloudy amber color with lots of sediment and a nice off-white head. Aroma is malts and almost a grappa character, kind if astringent. Flavor is oak, malts, vanilla, bourbon. Reminds me of the BCS barley wine, but not quite that level. Medium body with a lingering bourbon malt vanilla flavor. Excellent beer.
