COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
At a Glance The Beer: A fresh track, Track 8 is a spicy monster — A base of Judgment Day aged in freshly emptied bourbon barrels then spiked with liberal additions of cinnamon stick and dried chili pepper. ABV: 13.7% Released: August 18, 2012 Liner Notes We’ve never released a Bourbon Barrel version of our Judgment Day. So we thought it might be interesting to take the base beer for Cuvee de Tomme age in first fill Bourbon Barrels and let mother nature take over. Of course, because this is a Rock and Roll inspired Box Set beer, we couldn’t just leave well enough alone. Upon sampling the base beer, it became apparent that the raisins used to brew the base beer were going to drive the flavor bus of this beer. The conversations turned to Oatmeal Raisin cookies and the essence of a freshly baked treat. So we added some cinnamon sticks to the barrels and threw in some dried chiles as well. At 13.70 ABV this beer has amazing depth of flavor and presents a unique drinking experience for consumers who may be seeking enlightenment on Judgment Day.

I only rate the beers that make me say wow... So mybratongs are biased to the beers I enjoy. This is one of them. So big, such a broad palate, but so do well balanced. Smells like aromatic cookies/cinnamon rolls. Pours with small head, can smell the aroma from a distance. It was a favorite at a recent share. Palate guves you raisins, oak, cinnamon and a nice balance to the sweet with just a touch of black oeooer heat on the finish. If this beer werent so costly, id have tons of it in my cellar. IIt’sabeauty any stout/quad lover should have a go with at least once. Put it in your "must have" list if youve not already tried it. Highly recommended!

martjoobolut (2517) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 4, 2016
Quad rating #50. Bottle (from Beergium.com, thanks for this awesome free beer!!!). Pours dark ruby-black with brownish beige head. The head stays. Aroma is sour, fruits, cherries, spices, cinnamon, chocolate, hint of chili. Flavor is somewhat sweet and bitter, very noticeable spices, cinnamon, nutmeg, raisins, malt, caramel, touch of bourbon. No sign of alcohol, only some warmth in finish. Finish is malty with some dry bitterness and more spices. Overall: great brew. Bourbon is very well constrained and hardly noticeable (read: it doesn’t feel like someone poured bourbon in my beer). The only thing missing is real "wow effect", otherwise this would get even better rating.
