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.

12.7oz bottle. Opened to a very loud pop. Poured a dark brown color with an off white head. Woody, bourbon, vanilla, cinnamon, chilies, some roast, and some dark chocolates. Not overly cinnamon spice or overly chili hot (but both present. Overall alcohol content hidden.

katrinaez (416) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 16, 2015
Amazing that I didn?t know what was being served and the first thing I said was how much raisin flavor there is. Sweet sugary smell deep ripe almost spoiled fruit scent. Slight heat from chili but not very harsh. Light spices for cinnamon, but very good all around. Bourbon is done correctly. Not overt the top, just a nice touch. Bottle

BlackHaddock (4695) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2015
Cork and caged 12,7oz bottle poured into a Corsendonk badged stemmed tulip on 15th May 2015. Ruby hints around the edges of this dark forbidding brew, on top a huge tanned foam blanket. The aroma is rum soaked raisins covered in milk chocolate. The taste has chillies to give a bite to the chocolate raisins and rum from the nose. Rich, smooth yet the chillies add an extra dimension along with the cinnamon sticks which gave another twist to the tail of the brew. Appealed to my sweet tooth and love of hot, spicy food: a very interesting and different beer, glad I bit the bullet and paid the extra dosh for a truly world class beer.

Berard (429) - Salem, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 7, 2015
Bottle. Pours dark brown with a fizzy creme colored head. Strong aroma of raisin over medium carbonation. Raisin, coconut with a touch of spice that provides some heat. A bit thin. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

lillunken (40) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - APR 25, 2015
Flaska på gh, Uppsala. Mörk färg, lite skum som snabbt försvinner. Doften domineras av russin och Bourbon men chilin märks också av. Smak av russin, Bourbon och lite chili och alkohol. Smakar som en lagrad, god, maltig barley wine. Mycket gott!

jkwood04 (4513) - Connecticut, USA - APR 7, 2015
375ml bottle in a taster. Pours dark brown with a small head. Aroma of bourbon, some dark fruits and raisins, dark malts, some light chiles, cinnamon and other spices, and some light vanilla. Flavor the same with a very nice blend. Smoother texture. A really cool beer.

UPDATED: MAR 26, 2015 Draught at Lord Hobo 3/19/15
Another headless pour, yet this one is clear, oddly enough. Ruby-amber with no bubbles in suspension.
Initially candied cinnamon and light raisins fill the nose with a touch of black pepper. With warming tons of coconut notes emerge to the point of dominance. Still, there is certainly that oatmeal cookie thing going on, as again, like track 10, no alcohol is perceptble.
Heavy, heavy barrel tannin, not so much astringent as it is coconuty. Cinnamon certainly apparent with the chili sitting mildly in the background. Just too much raw barrel and too low carbonation mixed with a somewhat thin texture. Alcohol sneaks up on you. Yes, these are meant to be sippers but they still need a richer, more comforting texture. Or do they? Maybe these are just meant to drink like scotch? I dont know, not what im looking for in a beer.
