Yeah, would love a recipe for this one. I think DB is Stone's best beer.
FWIW, I met Greg Koch at a tasting and asked him about this beer. I asked if it was true that DB is the same ingredients as AB but "bumped up and rearranged a little."
He thought for a second and said "Nah, there's some other stuff in there"
Not exactly a recipe from Greg but it left me with the impression that the base is similar to AB but with one or two tweaks to the grain bill and possbily hops.
There is definitely a sweeter finish with the DB compared to AB. ABV% is obviously higher too.
I will have to do a side by side with the 2 when I can - if I'm not lucky enough to find some DB still in stock, it will have to wait until November tho
