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.

LtDan (1808) - 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.

Found this little gem while rearranging the cellar. Probably from wombat23. Thanks! Pours dark brown from the bottle. The head fizzes away after a short time. Aroma is a complex mix of raisins, brown sugar, and bourbon. Taste is sweet, full of raisins, chocolate, vanilla, coconut, oak and bourbon. Warming. Very warming and very potent although the alcohol remains well hidden. Body is thick and creamy but with a noticeable carbonation. Overall a very nice one.

Aroma of caramel, fruity eaters, bourbon, nutty. Brown without head. Flavor the same with aroma, alcohol warmth, dry finish. Medium body, light carbonation.

BlazerT (1335) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - JAN 3, 2018
Beczka po bourbonie jak w starym, dobrym Lost Abbey - słodziutka, intensywnie waniliowa, podbita przez wyraźne nuty rodzynek i cynamonu. Belgia to tutaj jest słabo wyczuwalna. Quada również niewiele. ABV niewyczuwalne. Cieżkie do oceny, piwo generalnie jest pyszne, ale bardzo w stylu LA i w ogóle nie w stylu quadowym. Ocena bardzo subiektywna.

Mariox (399) - Warsaw, POLAND - NOV 25, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 25, 2017 W aromacie rodzynki, daktyle, estry owocowe, papryczki na poziomie autosugestii, cynamonu nie czuć, beczka dobrze wyczuwalna. W smaku półwytrawne, lekka słodycz, delikatnie kwaśne, mało intensywny smak. Finisz słaby, czuć tylko delikatnie papryczki, które podbija zbyt duże wysycenie. Alkohol nieźle ukryty, ale wysycenie wysokie, mało ciała, średnio pijalne. Spory zawód, oczekiwania były większe.

Ogromny zawód! To miał być topowy quadrupel, a nie ukrywam, że jestem fanem tego stylu. Aromat zawiódł - był bardzo mało intensywny, to przede wszystkim. Czuć było rodzynki i... alkohol. W smaku piwo mocno gazowane, lekko ostre, brak wielkich doznań smakowych Alkohol dość wyczuwalny, słabo kryty, a goryczka trochę zalega w gardle. Zdecydowanie zawód, liczyłem na więcej, ale jeśli na tym samym panelu pilem 6-letniego Westvleterena i zestaw Bub Extreme, to był to, jakby nie patrzeć, najsłabszy quadrupel.

Tide (4566) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 24, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 25, 2017 Bottle from bottle shop. Dark brown color, beige head. Bitter taste with toffee, nuts, raisins, earthy notes, dried fruits, oak and bourbon. Bitter finish with toffee, nuts, raisins, bourbon, earthy notes, dried fruits, toast and a bit of oak. Excellent quad.

yoxik75 (460) - Wroclaw, POLAND - NOV 19, 2017
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 (6628) - 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.
