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.

Poured from a 375ml corked bottle into a tulip snifter. Temp about 45*F.

A: pours thick and dark, dark brown. Head is a mix between medium and fine bubbles, medium, about one and a half fingers, and a medium khaki color. Dissipated quickly to slight lacing around the glass.
S: bourbon aromas are apparent, as are the raisins. Neither is overpowering, both are rich and inviting. Some alcohol warmth is noticed. Some fig, plum, and sweetness also.
T: strong malt, very little hop bitterness if any. Bourbon up front and in the middle with some sweetness and raisin, especially in the finish.
M: rich, full body with alcohol warmth throughout. High carbonation provides balance to the rich sweet malty flavors. Alcohol warmth again in the finish.
O: very nice beer with some complex malt flavors complimented by the raisin and bourbon additions. Could use some aging to reduce the heat of the high alcohol content. Highly recommended.
