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.

Appears pitch black in the glass, but tinges of chocolate brown show around the edges when held up to light. Head is small and quick to make an exit. Nose is chocolate, bourbon barrel, maple, raisins. Taste is lots of chocolate, cinnamon, raisin, fig. Where's the alcohol! How is this 13%! Body is full, lots of carbonation initially, but mellows as it warms. Overall....a damn spectacular beer. An instant favorite, now to find more....as this beer warms it opens up like a fine wine...very nice.

I was lucky enough to receive this beer in a trade.
Pours black with a small fizzy head that dies quickly.
Aroma is dark fruit and alcohol.
Flavor is complex. Definitely taste the raisins, cinnamon & chiles as well as molasses.
Mouth feel = alcohol.
There is a lot going on with this beer. It is awesome and complex. A little hot (alcohol), I wish I had a few more so I could lay them down for a year or too.
