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.

No date on the bottle, but probably at least a year old. Almost black, lively carbonation, nice head. Nose: strong, prunes, plum liqueur, blackcurrant, wood varnish, ham, salami casings, both sweet and slightly savoury, kinda reminds of fortified wine. Alcohol is hidden better than in Rochefort 10, though this may be due to aging. Taste: prunes, autumn leaves, grape juice, custard, caramel, some raisins. Velvety body, gets foamy if you roll it in your mouth a bit. Long bitter finish, more bitter than I’m used to in strong dark belgians; hops, tannins and hints of dark chocolate. Overall: very enjoyable, and on par with Rochefort 10 in my book, though R10 is a bit more unique (I miss those creamy/condensed milk notes) and beats it on price (at least in my area).

Bottle (750ml $12): Reddish brown with light brown head that slowly disappears. Sweet Aroma. Taste is raisin/grapes and whiskey. Sweet. A little too much raisin for me but nice. Medium plus body.

From a corked 750ml brown bottle. Dark brown colour, thin covering of tan head. Nose has chocolate and raisin. Taste has chocolate, roast, raisin, a little bitterness. Good stuff, but I didn’t spend a ton of time on this rating.

Garlic_of_Doom (596) - SWEDEN - AUG 1, 2015
Ruby red with a creamy beige head. Aroma is mostly sweet with raisins, lots of malt and some alcohol. Taste is sweet with chocolate, raisins, caramel malt light bitterness, faint coffee. Full body, soft carbonation, dry mouth feel. Dry after taste.
Ok, but could had done much better with a smoother mouth feel.

SinH4 (1601) - Garching, GERMANY - JUL 4, 2015
On tap at the brewery. Dark brown, near black color with nice fine tan head. Malty aroma, some raisins. Taste is malty, boozy, raisins, vanilla, lacks a bit of an additional fruit association like the top Quads do. A bit candied-sugary. Not as good as expected. Still fine.

MRodgers1982 (111) - USA - JUN 18, 2015
Poured brown with nice tan head. Rich toffee and toast aroma along with Belgian character of some phenols and alcohol. Taste of toffee and candi sugar. Complex fruity character of dark fruits. Finishes with brown sugar and plums. Extremely complex and delicious.

fitwitchik (433) - Ohio, USA - JUN 15, 2015
2014 bottle poured into a snifter mahogony brown with a beige head that quickly left. Aroma is sweet boozy. That unique Belgian scent that makes me smile. Flavor is thickly dark fruit spicy. Smooth. First had couple of years ago on tap at the The Lost Abbey. Seriously as delicious. A fave ever American made Belgian Quads.
