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.

2012 bottle. Pours hazed copper brown with a fading off white head. Some legs. 3. Huge vanillin aroma, coconut, toffee, floral alcohol, marzipan and light fudge. Lightly floral hop character. Reminds me strongly of XV. 8. Flavors show a nice and complex toffee and burnt caramel note. Dry despite the massive abv and crystal. Balanced tannin, mild ester, low hop bitter. Banana foster,, light bourbon. Tannic, dry and warming finish. Medium low carbonation. Tasty.

Cask @ Pizza Port Real Ale Fest 2009. Pours a medium copper color with a one finger thick beige head, spotty lacing. Lots of caramel and toffee on the nose as well as light herbal hops and spice. Flavor was also very malty with tons of toffee and finishing with a sturdy hop backbone.
