Beer names come with a deliberate intent. In just a single word, a name can tell you everything you need to know about what you’re about to drink. With a name like Doom, you expect a beer to pull no punches and take no prisoners, and that’s exactly what Founder’s Brewing Company have in mind. Doom is a bourbon barrel-aged Imperial IPA sitting at 12.5% ABV. Initially only available in Founder’s taproom, with its last commercially available release in 2013, Doom is complex but manages to stay smooth with hints of vanilla and oak as a result of the barrel aging process. You don’t need to fear Doom, but you should be prepared for it.
