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.

A: Pitch black stout-like body. Two finger khaki head recedes to one finger after half a minute and stays there due to persistent streams of carbonation up the glass.

S: Potent sweet caramel and baking spices initially, follow by hints of vanilla and cola. Vegetal spiciness closes things out.

T: Bourbon soaked dark cherry, spicy cinnamon, and vanilla. Raisin notes. Minor chile heat becomes noticeable about halfway through the bottle.

M: Medium bodies and highly carbonated. Lingering tannic finish carries flavors long after each sip.

O: Well balanced and composed brew. No trace of booze for the ABV. Glad they re-released this one.
