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.

GIJOE (469) - Monterey, California, USA - FEB 6, 2014
Pours dark brown - almost black - with a thin, creamy, tan head that stays a while. Nose is slightly fruity; a hint of banana. Taste is somewhat bitter on a huge malty background, like someone accidentally over-hopped the batch. Full bodied, rich brew. Still pretty good, but not my style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle, 2012 vintage. Pours a very cloudy and very dark brown color with a moderate tan head on it. Nose is slightly yeasty to me with some faint earthy tones. The dark fruit really dominates, though, with the raisin being the shining element. It even smells a little warm to me. Taste is a little sweet, but has a bit of roasting coming through subtly. The raisin really balances it, though. Very intriguing...

Poured from bottle into sampling shaker. A very nice mahogany with a off white head. Lace on glass. Soft carbonation. Aroma was dark fruit, yeast. Medium bodied. I was expecting a thicker mouth feel but it was like velvet. Taste was plums and dark fruits. Some note of coffee and chocolate. Another wonderful take on a Belgian by Lost Abbey.

The beer pours a deep mahogany with maroon highlights with a rocky, light tan head of sudsy bubbles. The head sits about a finger’s width above the glass with nice lasting power. In body, the beer is deep and dark, nearly opaque, but seems to be clear of particles. On the nose, the beer of rich raisins, tart plums, and soft brown sugar and caramel malt. Touches of spicy clove and even a hint of banana esters touch upon the nose. There is even a touch of smooth breadiness and warming alcohol waft over the nostrils. On the tongue, the beer tastes boozy sweet with lots of fruity esters. The alcohol is very aggressive at the start of the sip but does mellow into the rest of the beer as the sip continues. Soft acidity play off the esters of the beer in the middle of the sip, but only a touch of bitter hops do touch the tongue. In flavor, the beer begins as hot, stale, spicy alcohol that mellows into sweet raisins, phenolic clove, bananas, and unripe plums with a touch of tartness. The finish brings forward bitter herbs with soft astringency, and a touch more hot booze, caramel, and more raisins. The aftertaste is soft bread and raisins in brown sugar. Stale green apple flavors hit the mouth throughout sip, and what feels like herbal tannins also make an appearance occasionally in the sip. In the mouth, the beer feels medium to full bodied. Carbonation is of middling strength, but the mouthfeel is velvety, smooth with a little harshness from the alcohol. Overall, this is a nice quad/Belgian strong ale that could use a little more time in the cellar. The alcoholic heat is a bit much and takes away from the rest of the beer. Flavors are rich, and the raisin is very dominant in the taste, but I want more of the phenols and esters from the yeast. The nose is also a bit weak in terms of the flavoring of the rest of the beer. This is a good beer that should be cellared for optimum flavoring.

Colasvart farge med beige skum. Lukter godt kaffe, sviske. Smaker fyldig og god sødme. God bitterhet og sødme i ettersmak. Denne kjøper jeg garantert igjen.

langeveld12 (191) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 7, 2014
pours an average light brown frothy head that mostly diminishes. Body is dark brown to black. aroma contains moderate malts (light bread, cookie, straw, toast, roasted and burnt malts, molasses, milk chocolate, mild coffee), moderate hops (flowers, resin, orange, lemon), light yeasts (horse blanket, leather) and banana, grape, raisin, plum, apple, pineapple, cherry, cassis, toffee, vanilla, licorice, alcohol and spices. Flavor is light acidic at the start, then bitterness is added and finally sweetness completes the mix of flavors. Body is medium to full with syrupy texture and soft carbonation. What a beer! Amazing complexity in aroma, subtle changes in flavor, there's sweet and sour fruits, coffee, chocolate. something between a RIS and a Quad but as good as the best of both.

Nesten svart i fargen med tynt brunt skum. Aroma av kaffe, plomme, malt, karamell og sjokolade. Bra med kullsyre. Smaker syrlig og bittert, rund og kremaktig følelse, lang og god ettersmak. En veldig god øl!

Pretty delicious. Sweet, somewhat creamy mouthfeel, with subtle raisin overtone. Belgian palate is right on, tiny bubbles, potent belgian quad finish.
