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.

Bottle shared thanks to starrdogg from an awesome trader in CA! Tried in order with all tracks in the series. This one is in the middle low part of the series compared to the others.

No head to this beer, and no lacing, almost like a spirit when poured into the glass, and the mouthfeel sort of echos that as it is a little thin.

Lots of cinnamon and dark fruits in the smell, just a touch of the spirit. VERY spice forward, but it reminds me of a warm holiday pie dessert with some vanilla bean ice cream on it, which is inviting.

The taste is more subtle in flavor than the aroma suggested, but definitely very cinnamon heavy...a touch of borubon soaked malts, not really much of these flavors are in the quad realm of flavors but it's still relatively tasty.

Feel is thin, but not boozy and low carbonation. Pretty good, overly cinnamon and needs more body.

Not very aromatic - a little cinnamon, dark fruits, light barrel. Taste is fairly dry - some richer fruits, nice marriage of cinnamon and chile with a very slight warming sensation. Do not get much rich bourbon booze or any booze at all off of this.

Enjoyable barrel aged beer, but leaves much to be desired.
