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.

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
