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.

Bottle shared by nasty31 @ NWI Bottle Share

A - Raisin brown with a hazy body

S - Raisin, brown sugar, light cinnamon, vanilla, and pepper spice that makes a nice nose

T - Nice raisins, good cinnamon and pepper spice. There is a good malt base in this as well that gives it a nice sweetness. Cinnamon and slight spice remains on the finish. Really a nice and complex beer that brings together a multitude of flavors very well

M - Light and slightly watery. Has a slight warming presence from the peppers and cinnamon. The finish has a light spice and oak that leaves a tingling on the tongue

O - Overall, a really solid beer that blends together a variety of flavors really well. This good blend of flavor that lets everything shine without overpowering anything else is what makes the best tracks standout

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Pours a cola brown color with a reasonably impressive head (particularly for a BA beer at 13.7%) that leaves a few shards

Smell: Bourbon and vanilla dominant, with oak, dark fruit and cinnamon

Taste: Cinnamon raisin bread, up front, with the Bourbon, vanilla and dark fruit tones building into the middle; the finish is oaky and somewhat dry

Mouthfeel: Full bodied with moderate carbonation

Overall: It's been a while since I have had a barrel-aged beers from Lost Abbey and it appears that they have put the carbonation problems behind them; this Quad is a real treat

Muddy brown body with light carbonation. The nose is remarkably close to an oatmeal raisin cookie, just with chili heat and big bourbon overtones. The palate shows an awesome balance of chili, cinnamon, raisin and bourbon. Sweet with a medium-full body. Has a hint of dark fruit tartness in the finish. Delicious, I could drink a lot of this.
