Style: Quadrupel (Quad)

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 13.70%

Availability: Rotating

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.

Got this as an extra in a trade,what a treat!smell is amazing,sweet dark fruit and bourbon but somehow the aroma of toasted coconut is prevalent , taste is just as good, again dark fruits with toasted coconut flavour, subtle cinnamon and heat from the chiles,sweet finish with a woody bourbon twang and surprising carbonation...this is the type of beer I love, a sweet barrel aged quad, this is right up there with Stickee Monkee as the best in its class.

Dark appearance with a slight head. A slight sweet aroma with a hint of bourbon. Very little carbonation. The flavor is sweet rasin with a bourbon taste.

Description says Oatmeal Raisin Cookies. I thought more Sun-Maid Cinnamon Raisin Bread. Either way, it was delicious.

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.
