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.

jackl (3859) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - FEB 5, 2014
Bottle @ The HUGE Tasting. Deep brown with a small head. The nose is rich chocolate cake. A bit of hot, spicy peppercorn. Strawberry syrup. The taste is or oatmeal raisin cookies. Chocolate vanilla brownies. A bit of toasted shredded coconut on the finish. Big, fat oily body. Another excellent track set entry.

bytemesis (2568) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JAN 11, 2014
Bottle. Pours opaque mahogany with a wispy tan ephemeral head that disappears as quickly as it forms, leaving just a touch of lacing. Aroma is light, with bourbon, dark fruits, coconut. Flavor is medium sweet, strong coconut, chili, dark sugars and fruits, cinnamon. Just a bit of astringency from the wood, but not much bitterness. A bit of heat on the finish belies the 13.7% ABV. Medium body, but quite creamy in the mouth. Effectively flat, which is a bit of a bummer, but hardly surprising.

Mega Tasting at Bruce’s pad. Almost clear dark brown beer, small pale tan head. Palate is light and semi dry. Lovely dark chocolate and fruity bourbon. Big coconut with nicely integrated smooth cinnamon. Underneath are good dark fruits. Finishes light. Lovely!

I lived alone... my mind was blank ... Bottle shared at the BIG Friday tasting, massive thanks to our Ken for sharing the entire track set and also to Bruce for providing the accompanying music 03/01/14. Dark mahogony brown with thin light beige headwork. Nose is dark toffee fudge, coconut shavings, sugars, boozey notes, dark fruit, dates, woody, fruit cake mix. Taste comprises dark fruits, coconut cake, boozey underpin, toffeee, muscavado sugars. Full bodied, fine carbonation, big boozey closure. Decent enough quad, a little too much boozey heat but not totally overwhelming, glad to be sharing this one though!

Scopey (5506) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2014
Bottle, generously shared by Kenny at the BIG Friday tasting. It pours near opaque brown with a small beige head. The nose is earth, wood, toasted coconut, dark chocolate, vanilla and light spice. The taste smooth, woody, earth, light chilli spice, treacle, chocolate, some astringency, dark, coconut and warming alcohol. Full body and soft carbonation. Smells rather nice, but a bit astringent and hot for my liking. Solid stuff nonetheless.

maneliquor (2780) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 4, 2014
Bottle shared during the Track Set interval of the Brokeback Revisited tasting in London. Cheers Kenny! Good song pairing. Nose is very big on the coconut, nice dose of aniseed, toasty, citric rind, vanilla and heavy spices. Taste is overwhelming coconut. It is just so in your face which I enjoy. Some spice and dark, bitter chocolate come out to play. Nice kick of heat to finish with the spice. Coconut is the main man here. Great stuff

Leighton (9830) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2014
Bottle shared in London during the Track Set portion of the First 2014 Tasting. Paired correctly to the music. Thanks Ken. Pours unclear brown with a slight tan cream cap. Lovely nose, lots of chocolate sundae, coconut, banana. Medium to big sweet flavor with oily coconut, ripe bananas, faint chocolate, cake. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Oily finish, more coconut, mild cocoa, banana, faint toffee, golden raisins, sugary bread. Quite decadent but still very drinkable.

Staffan47 (802) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - DEC 10, 2013
Svartbrun. Doftar tydligt mjuk pepparkaka. Alkoholer och ite estrig. Kanel och pepparkaka. Svagt värmande både från chili och alkohol, precis lagom. Låg kolsyra. Söt och svagt inslag av bourbon. Tänker snarast på en pumkin ale.

SlackerMads (1238) - DENMARK - NOV 24, 2013
Bottle at Theis. Thick dark brown with no head. Cinnamon, vanilla, coconut, dark fruits, alcohol. Bounty bar bonanza. Medium/heavy sweet and a bit boozy. I like it, but in small amounts.
