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.

Damn, this is nearly flawless. Smells a bit winey but thats where it ends. Fantastic mild that masquerdes as a barleywine.

UPDATED: DEC 25, 2015 I am usually a sucker for bourbon barrel-aged barley wines, but this one blows most of them out of the water. Rich caramel, bourbon, vanilla and oak notes.

jbruner (4408) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - NOV 26, 2015
Pours a clear golden brown on tap with fluffy off-white head that dissipates to leave moderate lace. Aroma is big on the bourbon with a nice malty and nutty middle. Taste is more molasses and vanilla, sweet but not over the top, really nice. Firestone knows how to do barrels.

Bomber through a trade with beercation. Firestone Double DBA 12% 2014 A lovely clear Amber color with a wispy beige head. A fantastic malty sweet aroma, a bit of booze and spice. Raspy carbonation on a medium body. The taste is sweet, caramel, nutty, biscuit, malty with some berry notes. As it warms up you get sweet caramel whiskey notes. Really good stuff.

Bottle at home, thanks to a trade with Steve. Vanilla, oak, alcoholic, caramel, english style caramel, bourbon, bitterness to cap it all off. Nice, but I've come to expect more when drinking Firestone Walker.
