I haven't seen a bottle but since it is part of the backstage series, I presume that it is a 22 oz. bottle.

I've been working my way through a lot of the singles that I purchased in Michigan a month ago. Short's and Greenbush make a lot of great beers; very excited for the latter to expand distribution to Chicagoland soon. Also loving on the Nugget Nectar and Perpetual IPA from Troeg's that I just traded for.

Four Roses OESO last night.
Cracking open a bottle of Bowman 17 yr 147.5 and will compare to a 2011 Stagg tonight to accompany the Pit Beef on the Big Green Egg.
I came across some bottles of Doom on Wednesday when I went looking for (and found) some ECBP. I cracked it open last night after smoking some brisket and pulled pork. I found my bottle of Doom to be a big disappointment.
Allow me to first say that I love Founder's All Day IPA so I was very much looking for to drinking it. What I drank was a very slightly altered Founder's All Day IPA. It was so little changed from a regular Founder's All Day IPA that if you presented it to me without telling me what it was, I would have guessed All Day IPA and not thought twice about it. And the faint bourbon taste I could pick up didn't mesh well with the lemon and grassy flavor of the IPA.
I would like to add that I first drank this immediately after eating my brisket and pulled pork. My meal could very well have affected my taste. However, I did finish off the bottle about an hour later and I did not notice a difference. My take on this is that not all beer should be aged in bourbon barrels. I'll be sticking to KBS and New Holland's Dragon Milk.
I would like to hear what other people think about this beer. It was the first time I was disappointed with a Founders product. It was OK but it didn't meet my high expectations. I'm in no hurry to drink my other bottle and I'll probably trade it.
A Goose Island IPA, in the DFW airport. Not nearly as cool as drinking tons of great bourbon in the gazebo, but still a pretty enjoyable beer.
