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.

UPDATED: AUG 23, 2015 Bottle shared by thomashall. Pours a hazy deep brown with a tan head that dissipates to the edges quickly. Aroma has a good amount of sweet grains, dark fruits, cinnamon, chilies and a hint of raisin. Flavor is more cinnamon forward with sweet grains and raisin supporting as well as touches of peppers underlying.

Flaske delt p RBHD-treff hos Sigmund feb-17: mrkebrun med kort skum. Kokos sjokolade ("Bounty"), sviskeplommer, rosiner, kanel, vanilje, havrekjeks. Alt dette bde i smak og aroma. Snev av chili afterburn? Lekre saker, og en flott avslutning p nok en super rbhd-kveld.

pjotrapostou (80) - POLAND - FEB 13, 2017
Gęste, nisko wysycone, brak piany. W zapachu rodzynki, słodycz, trochę bourbonowej wanilii, nuty utlenienia. W smaku suszone owoce i rodzynki, na drugim planie lekko waniliowa beczka i trochę cynamonu. Po wypiciu chilli zostawia na podniebieniu delikatnie ostre odczucie, ktre dobrze wspłgra ze słodkim posmakiem. Struktura dość oleista i gładka. Bardzo złożone, ale perfekcyjnie skomponowane.

czlowiekmotyka (109) - Warsaw, POLAND - FEB 12, 2017
Super rich aroma, bourbon barrel raisins and chili (nice!). Almost no carbonation. Sweet, bitter and spicy. Alochol is present but for the complexity of tastes it is a nice addition.

Tap@: pours dark brown, slightly haze, with creamy long lasting beige head. Aroma: intense malt notes, which takes on toasted toffee, hint of caramel, coffee, milk chocolate, dried fruit esters, vanillin, cinnamon, hint of bourbon. Flavor is very similar, just more intense malt and bourbon profiles, which are very well balanced. Finish is slightly dry, body full, texture velvetly, carbonation is moderate. Alcohol warmth is gentle, almost 14% is very well hidden.

poisoneddwarf (2422) - 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.
