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 12.7oz bottle picked up at Green's on Buford Hwy. This one went quickly..

A - Dark purple/black with no clarity. 1 finger of head and no lacing.

A - Raisons and Bourbon, like chocolate notes. Heaven!

T - Cinnamon and spices up front gets walloped like a wave with the Belgian quad and bourbon splash to your senses. HUGE flavor! Wow!

M - Medium bodied, smooth, oily, perfect

O - An incredible bourbon barrel aged Quad. Just perfect. Drink it if you can find it!
