COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A massive beer in every sense of the word. A stronger and more contemplative version of our Lost and Found Ale. Judgment Day is the base beer for our Cuvee de Tomme. Many of the Trappist Breweries produce a version of beer which ages incredibly well for many years to come. And, since none of us knows when the end of the world is coming, we suggest you stock up with lots of Lost Abbey beers so that when the end of the world magically appears from no where, you’ll have a beer or two on hand for even the stingiest of angels. Available in 750ml bottles and on draft at select inspired locations.

Editor's note. This is a new incarnation of Mother of All Beers, previously brewed at Pizza Port Solana Beach.

Darkmagus82 (547) - - JUN 16, 2014
Transfer from BA review on 5-18-12- Served on tap in a 10 oz chalice glass Appearance – Served a dark brown-reddish color with a thin tan head. The head faded quite fast to give a light amount of lacing. Smell- The aroma was sweet and delicious and mainly of darker fruits. A strong presence of grape, raisin, cherry and plum were present. These were mixed with lighter notes of a bready and yeasty aromas as well. There was furthermore a nice robust alcohol aroma which created a very pleasant boozy-fruit quality overall. Taste – The taste started out with a heavy presence of a mix of darker fruits and biscuit. The fruits were largely of raisin and grape, but soon in the taste other fruit flavors started to join the profile. In the middle the presence of cherry and a very light tropical flavor came to the tongue and mixed nicely with the grape and raisin. The biscuit subsided a bit toward the middle with the entrance of the other fruit flavors. As these other flavors entered, so to did a good helping of the alcohol that was detected in the nose. The alcohol grew stronger as the taste advanced to the end but mingled well with the fruit flavors and left a satisfying sweet boozy fruit flavor on the tongue. Very pleasant and warming. Mouthfeel – The thickness of the body was rather average with a slightly higher level of carbonation. Both did well to create more of a wine like feel to the beer, which in some ways was fitting as it suited the sweet flavors well, but in other ways prevented some of the robustness of the brew to be savored. It’s a tough call on the mouthfeel for this one. Overall – This was sweet tasty beer that warms the body and tingles the tastebuds. Very nice.

Dark brown pour from bomber. Meaty, with lots of dark fruit, raisins and cherry. Good hop punch that smooths out as it warms. Smells boozy, but you don’t taste it. Also sweetens as it warms. Warming.

Mep3222 (423) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - JUN 10, 2014
Very nice quad. Malty aroma, even a bit roasted. Some sugar sweetness but not overly sweet. Some dark fruit flavors, maybe fig like in thee as well. Solid quad. Couldn't drink much with the strength and sweetness and heavy ness, but a good quad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

zacgillbanks (2155) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUN 7, 2014
Bottle from Coppers, Newcastle. This is a very dark brown beer that pours with a creamy tan head. It has extremely rich red fruit, chocolate, burnt currants and tart red fruity flavours, spicy sherry notes and a powerful warming fruit and slight bitter, creamy finish. Superb!

panacea (56) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - MAY 16, 2014
Cloudy brown with medium white head. Nose is superb! Raisins, dates, sweetness and a bit of booze. Taste is similar, aged dried fruits and some "belgian yeast" notes. Full bodied. I really like this beer, but not at all in the same class as european barley wines!

ryecatcher (743) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 13, 2014
750mL bottle. Pours a deep chestnut, rocky tan head with very nice retention and okay lacing. Nose is big dried fruit (definitely getting those raisins), licorice, woodiness, plums, faint yeasty funk, vanilla, caramel, molasses, alcohol, slight oxidation. Mouth is big and creamy, sticky on the palate, medium sweetness up front, toffee, vanilla, more dried fruit, raisins, plums, dark bread, mild bitterness kicks in around mid-range, noticeable ABV. Solid Quad. Drank this in honor of Game 7 tonight, puck drops in about an hour. LET’S GO RANGERS!!
