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.

Piana niewielka, drobna, opada do krążka. Kolor ciemny błotnisty brąz. Aromat beczka po bourbonie dominuje, wanilia, dębina, rodzynki, karmel, intensywny przyjemny. Smak podobny, jest dość słodko, karmel, melanoidyny wiele owoców, daktyle, rodzynki, śliwka suszona, świetnie zagrała beczka wanilią, kokosem, drewnem, posmak szlachetnego bourbona, cynamon wyczuwalny minimalnie, chili jeszcze w mniejszym stopniu, bez czytania opisu nie do uchwycenia. Piwo wyśmienite złożone mimo słodyczy nie przytłaczające szybko i przyjemnie sie pije, alkohol ukryty. Bardzo Dobre dostaje WOW

Boutip (6533) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 17, 2017
Bottle: Poured a cloudy brown color ale with a medium size foamy head with minimal retention and limited lacing. Aroma of caramelized malt notes with some residual sugar notes and some dry fruits with hints of cinnamon and chili. Taste is a mix of caramelized malt with some well-balanced residual sugar notes with hints of cinnamon and chili with dry raisins notes. Body is full with medium carbonation and no real apparent alcohol notes. Interesting and good sipper without being necessarily true to the style.

Bottle. About four years old Thanks to Chris H. Nose of dark fruit, vanilla, and creme soda. Dark reddish-brown color with translucent edges. Vanilla, mild bits of dark fruit, and a touch of pepper which persists, Barrel note is pronounced throughout the palate.Medium body, edging on heavy. Rich and a bit hot, despite its age.

Bottle. Nose is minerals, chocolate, cinnamon, vanilla, some chili. Dark brown, hazy, flat. Nice cinnamon in the flavor, peppery, tasty. Has the right amount of spicing and chili to balance the sweet malts.

jinroh (2276) - ESTONIA - OCT 13, 2017
Tasting at Tokyo Midtown. Pours dark brown, somewhat cloudy. Nose has some amazing bourbon soaked raisins, some toffee and prunes. Not too sweet though. Christmas starts with the first sip, lots of cinnamon, vanilla, nutmeg and other Christmas spices in the flavour, prunes and dried plums there as well. Booze is kept in control, beautiful sipper.
