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 shared at the Santa Cruz boxset tasting. Aroma is basically apple cinnamon oatmeal. Flavor is massive cinnamon/goldschlager with a mild chili zestiness. Too heavy on the spice.

Bottle from jamesy -- cheers! This is a beauty and a beast. It’s got a high ABV, spent a long time in bourbon barrels, is spiced with cinnamon and chilies, and is brewed with loads of raisins, so there’s a lot going on even before the cap comes off. But the finished beer is really complex. There’s loads of raisin and stone fruit flavor and a bourbon aroma, but it’s balanced by malty sweetness and a very light spicy heat from the chilies at the end. Great stuff.

To piwo to prawdziwy sztos dla takiego miłośnika quadów jak ja. Burbonowa beczka jest mocna i świetnie układa się z suszonymi owocami, nie tylko rodzynkami, ale i śliwką, figą i daktylem. Jest wanilia, cynamon i papryczkowe mocne grzanie przełyku. Piwo ogólnie jest gęste, treściwie i mocno rozgrzewające. Jedno z najlepszych piw ever.

rubbishystuff (2334) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 28, 2016
At Jerry’s LS. Only got the 6oz, which was good, functioned more as a dessert. Wonderfully complex aroma, taste of chocolate, spices, bourbon. Some how I smelled coconut? Excellent stuff, but a full pour, would be maybe just too much, quite rich. Serving: Tap

37,5 cl bottle @ home
Aroma is sweet with Bourbon tones, vanilla, rhum and raisins. Feels sweet and heavy. Flavour has very strong bourbon tones, some oak, rhum, raisins, sweet malt and molasses. Palate is a bit too high on CO2. Warming alcohol in the finish. A slow sipper indeed.

Bottle. Pours dark brown with no head. Aroma of caramel, chocolate, vanilla, bourbon, dried fruits. In taste the same with cinnamon and bourbon vanilla kick, spicy chili burn mixed perfectly. Full bodied, oily, velvet texture, soft carbonation. Finish is lightly bitter with warming feeling. Fantastic beer, so much various flavours nicely mixed.
