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.

Rating #666 (As a fan of both Lost Abbey and Iron Maiden I couldn’t really help myself). Brown color, small, quickly diminishing brown head. Aromas of yeast, bourbon, vanilla, raisins, hints of chili, caramel, plums, suryp, brown sugar, spices and alcohol. Sweet taste with raisins, vanilla, cinnamon, bourbon, candy sugar, spices, wood, arrack, alcohol, cacao and a hint of chili. Over the top and ridiculously awesome.

3750ml bottle pours out dark brown with just a touch of bubbles. Nose is big bourbon barrel notes vanilla cinnamon pit fruit and plenty malty sweetness. Taste is more of the bourbon barrel notes cinnamon pit fruit and some honey sweetness.

UPDATED: JUL 16, 2017 Draft glass @ Gollem: Omnipollo Craft Beer Madness. Dark brown faintest amber, deep tanned head. Nose is damn thick sweet raisin, cinnamon, vanilla, sugar, massive sweet boozy bourbon with more alcoholic raisin. Taste is massive boozy wonderful raisin, thick strong bourbon, slick more pure basic sweet whisky in a good way than bourbon barrels, sugar, vanilla, mocha, warming, big cinnamon, such rich raisin & whisky, finish oddly touch of coconut (?). Bit much in a good way huge warming sugar, caramel, raisin whisky body. Damn massive beer. Tried another glass, really good, so much cookie, cinamon, vanilla, boozy raisin, perfect amount of chilli. So lovely.

Thnx to Dowon. Pours black, sma grey head. Smell is rich, candy sugar. Leaves in the fall, taste is spiced, cinnamon - ruining most of the complexity -

Vom Fass im Stone Brewing Berlin 2016-11 getrunken. Das erste Bier auf dem Tisch und gleich der Gewinner des Abends. Die Nachreifung in Bourbonfass und die Gewürze haben das fette Teil spannenden Aromen gegeben. Erst springt einen eine fette Kokusnote ins Gesicht und dann folgen Bourbonaromen auf fetten Malznoten. Kaum süß und der Alkohol ist perfekt eingebunden. Geiles Zeug!

Pours a one finger khaki head that fades quickly leaving no lace. Black color, no highlights. Medium carbonation and medium bodied. Cinnamon nose and flavor is cinnamon and bourbon, any chiles are buried, high ABV, 13.7%, is hidden. Beyond expensive at $18.95 for a 375ml caged & corked bottle from Colonial Spirits Acton, Ma.

ACHops (1584) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 11, 2017
375 bottle, served in a tulip glass. Pours a watery slightly reddish brown with very thin white head that disappears quickly. Aroma is big sweet cinnamon, brown sugar, raisins, and sweet boozy bourbon. Taste is thin rich roasty brown ale, big raisin and plum flavor, brown sugar, leather, dry oak, creamy vanilla, sticky bourbon notes. Light sweetness, I expected quite a bit more given the abv here. Just a faint hint of heat on the back, the chiles don’t really show much. While this is a quad, not a stout, the thin mouthfeel does seem a bit off for the size and depth here. Still, tons of flavor and richness here. I would guess this was quite a bit smaller than 14% if I didn’t know otherwise.
