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.

douglas88 (8914) - 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 (2197) - 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.

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.

Luty (88) - Swiebodzice, POLAND - MAR 8, 2017
Aromat złożony, niczego nie urywa ale szlachetny, alkoholowy w klimatach tych dojrzałych alkoholi, bardzo dużo bourbonu, słodki, karmelowy kojarzący się z czekoladką karmelową. Dużo bourbonu, jeśli ktoś jest wielbicielem, zostanie zaspokojony na co najmniej tydzień. Bardzo ciemne brązowe z ładną kremową pianą. W smaku w sumie nie wiem, czy bym odgadł, że jest w tym cynamon, chociaż potem faktycznie zaczął objawiać swoją obecność takim posmakiem cynamonu z drożdżwek i wypiekw, karmelowe, słodkie, ogrom bourbonu i drewna w smaku. Na początku spore ogrzewanie, najpierw myślałem że jest to alkohol, ale potem że może są to po prostu te papryczki, ktre podobno wrzucili, bo alkohol w smaku ukryty. Spodziewałem się troszkę innych doznań.

ctipping (1811) - Florida, USA - MAR 8, 2017
375 mL bottle. Originally reviewed sometime in 2013. Brown with a few bubbles. Just a thin white collar. Nose of bourbon, vanilla, a ton of caramel. Smells like its going to be sweet. Cinnamon is strong. Yeah, its sweet. Tastes of a ton of caramel and cinnamon. Barrel lends a nice bit of bourbon and oak. Spicy bite in the finish. Low carbonation. Very sweet for a quad, if thats what were calling it. Its too sweet for a quad, but the flavors otherwise blend quite well.

kaserov (521) - Oviedo, SPAIN - MAR 5, 2017
Color marrn oscuro, casi negro, opaco, con capa de espuma marrn de dos dedos de grosor (poca retencin). Carbonatacin mnima. Textura oleosa. Aroma a alcohol, madera, canela, pasas, azcar, frutas y, por encima de todo, cayena/chile (muy presente y apetecible). En boca, dulce, con mucha presencia de las pasas y la canela, un ligero toque picante cuando uno va a tragarla, y mucho alcohol que calienta la garganta (sobre todo en los primeros tragos, luego va disipndose un poco porque a todo se acostumbra uno). Compleja, disfrutable y, pese a tener el alcohol bastante presente, nunca hubiera dicho que tiene casi 14%. Me hubiera gustado algo ms de regusto y postgusto. Apenas queda algo en boca entre trago y trago una vez se han disipado el ligero picante y el alcohol.
