Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: MasterSki on 08-16-2012

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.

This tastes gross until the absolute finish and then it sweetens up and tastes like the base beer. Really disappointed by this one as I love regular Judgment Day.

The beer offers a rich sweet aroma with tons of bourbon.

The flavor follows with that sweetness and thin alcohol flavor. The beer moves onto some cinnamon and spice, but very light. Then onto a finish of caramel, but the beer is generally lacking in its ABV with mouthfeel or balance.
