Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Pours a dark brown with a thin off-white head. Smell is really nice, a great mix of vanilla from the bourbon, cinnamon and sweetness - a bit like a cookie. Flavor is heavily cinnamon up front and finishes a little sweet and chocolatey. I'm not getting much from the chiles here, disappointingly. Mouthfeel is medium-full bodied with nice carbonation. This is a tasty, very creative beer. I wish it was a little more chile-forward, but I can't complain - well done and tasty.

4.35/5  rDev +0.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

Pours dark brown nearly black in color with a fizzy tan head that dissapears instantly.

Smell gas notes of rich sweet molasses like malt forward with some hints of stone fruit, mainly plum. Finishes with hints of toffee aromas.

Taste is where this has great complexity. Malt is forward with flavors of toffee, molasses and caramel. Sweet raisen balances nicely with a oaky bourbon presence in the mid section. Finishes with very faint hints of spicy phenols, mainly cinnamon and clove.

Mouthfeel is medium to heavy in body however intense carbonation cut through the thickness leaving it feeling light. Finishes with an encompassing numbing alcohol.
