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.

Sampled from the tap at FOBAB 2012. Pours a near clear deep amber with a brown head that dissipates quickly to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of cinnamon and chillies with some backing sweet grains and bourbon. Flavor is again heavily spiced with some raisins and sweet grains backed by bourbon. Spice became overwhelming.

Draft at Ale Arsenal. Black with a small light khaki head. Nice spicy aroma, a little chile and cinnamon. Roasty chocolate flavor with big cinnamon, chile, and anise, dark fruit and bourbon. Fairly full mouthfeel with smooth palate.

tightslice (439) - Redwood City, California, USA - JUL 23, 2015
Bottle from Whole Foods Market in Redwood City, CA (purchased by my glorious wife). Aroma is rum cake, booze-soaked raisins, oatmeal cookies. Taste is rich, dark fruited, boozy breads. This is a thick, punishing pudding of a dessert beer.

Lilja (2130) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUL 3, 2015
Flaska från Craftbeer/Galatea. Smak och doft av fina och komplexa smaker av bourbon, rom-russin, kanel och lagom mängd chili. Väl dold alkohol, kraftull, lagom sötma, välbalanserad och fantastisk god!

Wonderful on the tongue this is the bottle you should let age after a while. Pours a tan head that dissipates over time.

Bottle. Pours out a muddy brown color with a small off white head. Aroma is of dried fruits, sweet sugary syrup, some alcohol and light earthy pepper; no real tell of spice on the aroma. Taste is complex, dried dark fruits, syrup, cinnamon sugar, oak, booze, light pepper. Overall abv was every well hidden.
