I am not sure which version of Doublin Raid I had, but it was listed at 9% and none of the versions on here are at 9%. The menu stated that it was a barrel aged irish red.

Copper amber in color.

Flavor a lot of smoke and peated malt flavors. Caramel and toffee with biscuit and bready malts.

Mouthfeel: Smokey! Medium bodied.

Overall, a cool beer to pair with food, but on it's own, the smoke and peat was too dominate.

Bourbon barrel aged version. Amber bodied with just a trace of foam on top. Big bourbon blast in the nose. The flavor is like a Kentucky Bourbon Ale or a weaker Backwoods Bastard. Huge bourbon flavors with vanilla and wood. It really takes over the base beer, but you also don't have a huge ABV so drinking one doesn't finish your night. The feel is a bit dry and somewhat thin. A nice take on a bourbon barrel aged beer.
