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.

Wow. Tasted in bottle in mid September in Baltimore. Has lively end of year holiday overtones...especially at 12%! Lots o vanilla ala holiday cookies, marzipan (almond paste) from German pastries spicy from oak and sweet caramel loveliness. Will put away some bottles for holiday cheer!
