COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
At a Glance The Beer: A fresh track, Track 8 is a spicy monster ó 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 Weíve 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 couldnít 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.

LtDan (1806) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - SEP 23, 2012
Appearance: Pours an amber brown with a micro stripe of bubbles atop.

Aroma: Cinnamon,brown sugar,ripe dark fruit. Caramel ,cocoa.

Taste: Anise, rum raisin, wood. Black pepper with lingering spice.

Mouthfeel: Prickly. Full bodied, harsh.

Overall: I thought this beer was too big and harsh when it was released, but see some potential for it by this same time next year. Great flavor profile, just too hot with too much bite.

LinusStick (3185) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 21, 2016
On par with Lost Abbeyís awesome beers. Aroma was very full. Huge raisin smell with prune, Belgian yeast and other dark fruits. Pour was a nice deep dark brown, near black with a thin light tan film for a head. Taste was huge. A little too sweet and cloying, but with this ABV itís expected. This beer is all dark fruits. Dates, figs, plum and raisin are leading the charge. The Belgian yeast dried the beer out a bit, but all in all this was a sweet fruity desert beer. Good carbonation.

MarcoDL (3785) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 19, 2016
Bottle at beertemple. Dark brown pour. Delicious aroma of bourbon vanilla, almond, cinnamon, ripe fruit and chocolate. Flavor is filthy rich, with almond, cinnamon, hazelnut, ripe fruit, smooth bourbon vanilla, mild cacao, spice and a smooth mild chili afterburn that fits perfectly with the other flavor. This is one of the rare examples of extreme flavors in near-perfect balance, thus enforcing eachother. Fantastic brew, nectar of the gods.Iím off to build an altar for this one.

Dark pour that looked like muddy swamp water...the kind of look that will make you go "1" or "5" for appearance based on whether it tastes good! Bourbon and chocolate on the nose. Coffee, chocolate, a ton of licorice and a punch of bourbon. This is great. GREAT.

slowrunner77 (9411) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JUN 13, 2016
Iím a Judgement Day fan, a bourbon barrel fan, and a chili fan, so the premise here excited me. Pours almost stout dark, with a strong nose of vanilla, booze, chocolate oak and raisins. You really have to work for the spices in the nose, but they come out some as it opens. Flavor is sweet and boozy and spicy...all those things plus moderate chili and light cinnamon. Nice sipper. Doesnít resemble a traditional quad anymore, but is quite delicious.

adasko (1710) - Poznan, POLAND - JUN 5, 2016
Bourbon, chocolate, vanilla, red wine, cherry - mind blowing aroma. Dark copper color, tiny beige head. Looks pretty decent. Taste is actually even more mind blowing than aroma. Itís like liquid chocolate, with cherry, with vanilla, with bourbon, with wood, with port wine. So amazing. A bit to light in the mouth, but still so silky and smooth. For this 13,7 abv - almost unnoticeable. Pure masterpiece.

Tap into a wineglass showing half a finger of clean white foam with a dark caramel brown. The nose shows dark caramel malt notes with a strong bourbon (oak and smoke) background. The palate is lightly carbonated and lightly bodied. Flavors of dark caramel malts with a light sweetness from the raisins thatís reined back by the bourbon. The bourbon adds further alcohol spice to the beer. The out of place hoppy bitterness is subdued by the bourbon oak and smokiness and comes together a little better than the Judgment Day.

Draft at the Lost Abbey 10th Anniversary Party. Lots of dark fruit aromas and flavors. Malty and sweet and delicious.

SeniorZozo (1037) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 18, 2016
Tasting session @ Budapest. Pours deep ruby brown, nose is coconut, raisins, light chili, caramel, wood, taste is similar, light cinnamon, the coconut from the bourbon dominates a little but itís pretty tasty. Perfect.

ClubGonzo (5303) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 15, 2016
Bottle @ Himmeriget, Copenhagen. Pours a deep mahogany brown body with a small off-white head. Nose is dark malts, raisins, whisky, wood, alcohol and hints of vanilla, dark fruits, brown sugar and caramel. Taste is caramel, toffee, honey, alcohol, raisins, nuts and hints of butterscotch, figs, dates and dark malty notes. Full, oily body, medium carbonation. Amazingly integrated flavors; so complex, heavy and still utterly moore-ish. Fantastic stuff, probably the best quad Iíve had after Westy 12 (which is still king in my book).

Shared bottle. Pours a dark brown body with little to no head. Aroma is complex with loads of dried fruits, vanilla and cinnamon. Taste is sweet with vanilla, bourbon and cinnamon flavors. Dried fruits and a whiff of well hidden alcohol. Fairly flat but still oacking a medium full body.
