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 Weve 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 couldnt 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.

iowaherkeye (2703) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - AUG 18, 2012
Bottle at LA. Clear medium dark red and a one finger beige head, low retention. Big bourbon cinnamon vanilla nose. Dark fruits and sweet caramel toffee also present. Flavor follows, not super sweet, actually. Lots of bourbon, some chili heat does rise in the back of the throat. Dry finish, bitterness at a 2. Alcohol heat lets you know its strong. Full body, low carbonation. Very very tasty. 8-4-9-4-17

ACHops (1563) - 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 dont 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 didnt know otherwise.

darbeer75 (858) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - MAY 2, 2017
Aroma: definitely getting the cinnamon raisin oatmeal cookie; with addition of bourbon...yum; Appearance: opaque black brew with thin white head that dissipates slowly; Taste: amazingly complex. Vanilla, bourbon, cinnamon, spice, raisin. Delicious. Palate: heavy body with long, sweet and boozy finish. Overall: excellent. Would get again if we can find it.

alteregoo (1341) - Kalisz, POLAND - APR 25, 2017
Piana średnia, sycząca, szybko opada do firanki. Barwa brązowa, opalizująca. W aromacie piękna wanilia z beczki, do tego trochę kokosa, rodzynek, fig, melasy i bourbona. Klasa! Smak dość słodki, tu intensywnej wanilii wturują intensywne nuty quada - kandyzowane i suszone owoce (gruszki, rodzynki, daktyle), karmel, toffi, ciemny mid, w posmaku pojawia się przyjemny cynamon i lekkie pieczenie od papryczek. Goryczka średnia do niskiej, pikantno ziołowa. Wysycenie średnie, drobne, lepkie, lekko oleiste w odczuciu. Pięknie schowany alkohol, objawiający się delikatnym, likierowym rozgrzewaniem, bardziej kojarzącym się z chili niż destylatem.
Klasa światowa - intensywne, długie posmaki, niesamowity balans, fajna tekstura, a co najważniejsze nie drażniące chili (to się rzadko zdarza!). Bomba!

Brilliant brew. I love the balance and complexity in this beer. Raisins, cinnamon, bourbon, oak, pepper. And so much more. So subtle. Wow!

douglas88 (8996) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 8, 2017
Bottle from Johns. Very expensive. Pours a dark brown reddish color with a small beige head. A lovely big nose of figs, berries, bourbon, oak. Great nose. The flavor is big sweet berries, bourbon, cherry, woody, vanilla, quite sweet. This is amazing. Hardly recognizable as a quad, big porter elements. Very good beer. Lots of spicy raisins. Complex.

Sarlacc83 (2237) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 27, 2017
Bottle from Belmont Station. A: Dark mahogany, mocha head, lacing. N: Chili, cinnamon, plenty of raisin and fig, oak, bourbon, caramel, some peppercorn. I definitely get the oatmeal raisin cookie effect. Clove. Ginger and rye breads. Touch of black cherry, leather, and tannins. Cabernet grape. T: Lightly spicy ( the chili underpins this really well ) plenty sweet with a moderate bitterness. M: Medium-heavy sticky body, no alcohol, tickling carbonation. O: I thought this was going to be a worthy buy -- though I had no idea if the chilies were going to work -- and I have to say it impressed me past expectations. This is really nice. Very complex and sublimely balanced. Bravo.

imperial_suchy (182) - Rybnik, POLAND - MAR 17, 2017
Kolor brązowy , przejrzyste, piana w postaci obrączki oblepiającej szkło. W aromacie bardzo bourbonowo, karmel, suszone owoce, nuty drewna, migdały, szlachetny alkohol. W smaku rwnież bourbon, karmel, suszone owoce, lekki posmak migdałw. Słodycz jest kontrowana goryczką, pochodzącą od wyraźnie wyczuwalnego szlachetnego alkoholu, a w finiszu czuć subtelną i przyjemną ostrość chilli. Starałem się wychwycić cynamon, ale ani w zapachu, ani w smaku nie stwierdziłem jego obecności. Tak czy inaczej jest to naprawdę świetne piwo.
