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!

Scored this on my Cali trip. And the square root of 443,556 is 666. Some believe that to be the Mark of the Beast. Some believe the mark to be 616. Google it...

Pours up ruby brown, faded dark khaki head, no lacing, lots of little yeasties floatin around. Nose is bourbon, raisins, alky heat. Tastes of red wine, concord grapes, chocolate malts, a hint of cinnamon, faint pepper rind, a little pepper spice in the finish (these guys aren't from Texas so of coarse they don't specify which pepper they used), oak, watered down bourbon, booze heat. Full bodied, very active carbo (soda-ish), slightly sticky mouthfeel. Im a fan.

You know, I was en route to this brewery and we stopped at Stone Brewery along the way... and that's where our night became lights out. Got pretty hammered at Stone, didn't make it to the Abbey. Buuut, there will be a next time. Soon. We have family out there in San Diego and LA.
