Doom pours a hazy straw yellow with some orange hues mixed in. On top is a small, frothy head that leaves a few spots of lace behind as it fades away.

The aroma has nice notes of vanilla, oak, butterscotch, coconut, tropical fruit and a touch of citrus.

Each sip of this medium bodied beer is smooth, slightly chewy with mild carbonation. The flavor begins sweet with vanilla, oak, bourbon and some tropical fruit. The middle presents some toasted malt and a little smoke. It finishes with some orange citrus. Once gone the bourbon and vanilla lingers on the palate.

This beer is definitely a sipper. Very tasty and boozy. It could easily be aged for a year or two to smooth out the bourbon edges.

Pours a lightly hazy orange-ish color with an off white head. In the aroma, vanilla, bourbon, and orange citrus. In the taste, oaky, big bourbon, and some mellow orange citrus hops. A smooth and medium bodied mouthfeel, with a dry woodiness, with notes of citrus and bourbon. Big bourbon, more in the nose than taste, and really nice!
