Box Set Track 8
A fresh track made to honor Iron Maiden’s 1982 epic head banger, Number of the Beast
At a Glance
A fresh track, Track 8 is a spicy monster — A base of Judgment Day aged in freshly emptied bourbon barrels then spiked with liberal additions of cinnamon stick and dried chili pepper.
Released: August 18, 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.
At 13.70 ABV this beer has amazing depth of flavor and presents a unique drinking experience for consumers who may be seeking enlightenment on Judgment Day.

Hard to believe that one mother could produce two children of such different temperaments, but God works in mysterious ways she reminded herself.
Damian had been one of her biggest challenges this year. The kids didn’t like him. The parents didn’t trust him and, most of all, there was something lurking behind those shifty, beady eyes. His presence in the classroom always troubled her. She thought him evil but couldn’t prove it.
She set out to test him. Damian took his turn at the chalkboard and the impossible question was presented. What is the square root of 443,556?
As Damian finished writing the last 6 for his answer, he turned, winked at her, and returned to his seat.
She finally had her answer. Sister Mary Hightower never returned to work…
