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.

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.

poisoneddwarf (2391) - Coeur d Alene, Idaho, USA - JAN 13, 2017
12.7 corked and caged bottle. Aroma is woody, raisin, bourbon, toffee, vanilla, soy sauce. Pours murky dark brown with a beige soapy head with good retention. Taste is moderately sweet and savory with flavors of the aroma along with licorice, chocolate, alcohol. If this didnt say chilies on the label, I wouldnt think it had them, but since it does, its got me thinking there is a faint spicy heat on the back end. Not the excellence I was hoping for, although it is good.

Une bire qui accompagne srieusement bien le 7e pisode de la 4e saison de Walking Dead. La robe brune aux reflets rouges de cette bire nest pas son aspect le plus russi. Sa mousse non plus dailleurs. Cette dernire semble gnreuse lors du service mais sessouffle bien rapidement. Qu cela ne tienne. Je plonge mon nez dans mon verre au mme moment o The Governer plonge malencontreusement dans une fosse remplie de zombies. Heureusement pour moi, mon sort est bien plus agrable que le sien. Des pices en quantit, de la banane, des graines de lin broyes, du raisin sec, de la pte biscuits et de la noix. Cest charg. Un pain aux bananes et aux raisins secs. The Governer sen sort! Moi aussi! Je gote. En bouche cest la cannelle qui sort grande vainqueur. Lalcool est prsent, mais est-ce une surprise? Dissimuler 13,7% dalcool est une tche presque aussi impossible que traverser inaperu un champs contrl par les zombies. The Governer russit mieux que le brasseur de Lost Abbey sur ce point. Jai bien plus limpression dune bire de Nol que dune Quadruple. Jachve mon verre au mme moment que se termine lpisode. The Governer et moi-mme sommes puiss...

Copid (96) - POLAND - JAN 12, 2017
W aromacie troszeczkę nut waniliowych, sporo rodzynek, suszonych owocw cynamonu, toffi, karmelu, brzoskwini. W smaku pełne, przypomina pyszne ciasto, oleiste, cynamonowe, rodzynkowe, toffi, lekka wanilia, chilli gdzieś może w tle w trakcie picia leciutko się objawia. Świetne piwo.

skortila (5473) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - JAN 8, 2017
Bottled. 15cl sample. The aroma has raisin/dried fruits, bourbon/vanilla, caramel, some chocolate. Very dark coloured beer with an off-white/beige head. The taste is light bitter, moderate sweet, has dried fruits, prunes, bourbon, hint of spice (nice and not too strong). Very well balanced beer. Full bodied, nice how the spices blend in. No extreme crazy chili nonsense, but just a little touch to give the beer the little extra.

TimE (5376) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JAN 2, 2017
Medium dark brown color. Sweet malty nose, bourbon, sweet dark fruit but not massively complex. The mouth shows a lot more depth with bourbon, dark fruit, milk chocolate, alcohol well hidden for the abv. Smooth. Good stuff but doesnt go to the next level.

mice (868) - FINLAND - DEC 31, 2016
375ml bottle from Saveur Biere. Deep dark beer with sparkling, quickly vanishing head. Small foam molding stays in the glass. Aroma is very strong. It has dark plums, raisins, caramel malts, cinnamon and vanilla and whisky oak feeling. Taste has whisky, raisins, dark fruits, cinnamon. Very delicious overall. The final taste has same spicy pepper. Full body, soft and silky creamy mouthfeel. Low carbonation. Wonderful.

Enno101 (100) - - DEC 30, 2016
Aroma: Up front is big bourbon notes followed by dark forest fruits, ginger, oak & booze. As it warms up the cinnamon sits right beside the bourbon & I get a very slight hint of pepper. Taste: Bourbon & cinnamon dominate, cherry, raisins, a big booze kick & the pepper lingers slightly on the finish. Overall: A lot going on here. At first it seems a bit disjointed, but it was too chilled, once it warms all the flavours appear and it works. A complex & unusual beer that works (once it warms).
