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.

Bottle at LA. Clear medium dark red and a one finger beige head, low retention. Big bourbon cinnamon vanilla nose. Dark fruits and sweet caramel toffee also present. Flavor follows, not super sweet, actually. Lots of bourbon, some chili heat does rise in the back of the throat. Dry finish, bitterness at a 2. Alcohol heat let’s you know it’s strong. Full body, low carbonation. Very very tasty. 8-4-9-4-17

500 bottle, Dark Brown pour. Big Cedar wood nose with Bourbon. Up front Bourbon and chocolate raisins, followed by cinnamon, with chile peppers in the background. Well blended and smooth. some burn in the finish. I like the analogy of a Oatmeal Raisin cookie.

markducommun (170) - Wilmette, Illinois, USA - JUL 22, 2014
Cloudy dark brown-black. Minimal light tan head. Smells predominantly of bourbon and alcohol. Molasses. Cinnamon, spice. Bitter, some sweetness. Spiciness on the back. Incredibly long finish. Quite sweet all the way through. Very thick and oily, coats the palate. Alcohol is very upfront. Very interesting, quite good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TheEpeeist (3283) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 17, 2014
12.7 oz bottle. Dark brown with beige foam. Nose is raisin, bourbon, toffee and cinnamon with a chili sting. Medium body with fuzzy carb. Taste is bourbon, raisin, muted cinnamon and chili adding slight heat. Finishes slightly bitter with wood. Everything works together quite nicely without any ingredient overpowering; the alcohol as subtle as the spice.

Bottle via craftshack shared at RBSDADG 2014. Pours a deep brown body with light lacing. Aroma is cinnamon cookies, oak, sweet molasses, rich barrel character and vanilla. Mouthfeel is medium with notes of cinnamon, spices, faint chili, oak barrel, chocolate, molasses and holiday cookies. Really interesting and a wonderful treat.
