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.

Poured from 750ml bottle into tulip during #bottlecherwednesday at Beachwood BBQ in Seal Beach it was hard to peg this tape-wrapped bottle. Dark red-brown in body with a small tan head that quickly settles to a thin ring. Some spotty lacing is left on the glass. Aroma is raisins, figs, plums, chocolate malt, yeast, and alcohol. Taste is strong dark fruit and caramel malt sweetness with a touch of cherry, light cocoa and spice bitterness, and alcohol on the swallow. Medium-plus body, syrupy thick texture, average to soft carbonation, alcohol and spice finish. I have read that newer bottles may be too carbonated, but think this bottle was aged some, so that may have affected the profile. I quite enjoyed this style-bending quad.

75 cl flaska från Broadway. Kolsvart i färg med ett lätt skum. Ganska kolsyrad. Plommon och choklad i doft som återfinns i smaken oxå.

Very decent stout, but nothing impressive. As drinking along it gets better.

2014.03.15 - Lost Abbey Judgment Day - 750 ml bottle in motel clear plastic cup. Bottle seems to have a best before or bottled date but I’ll be damned if I can make it out. Aroma: first impression: Belgian Dubbel. Less bready than 10 Commandments. 6/10 Appearance: Pours deep chestnut brown. Little if any red tones. Mostly opaque but a bit of light makes it through. A lot of carbonation, fully half the cup on each pour, and visible vigorous bubbles. Creamy caramel white head. 4/5 Taste: medium sweetness, raisins, a bit of earthy roast flavor as compared to 10 Commandments. Less overall sweetness. More balanced but less wow. Nice. 7/10. Palate: medium body, sticky, lively, long finish. 4/5 Overall: Again, right up my alley. Belgian, raisins? That’s got me written all over it. Not AMAZING but darn good. Too bad I can’t get these back East without shipping. A bit better balanced than 10 Commandments. Enjoyable. 17/20 edit: \\// ’sup WV neighbor weihenweizen

Refrigerated 75 cl brown bottle, bottled on date 12/25/2012, corked and capped poured into a Trappist glass. Pours translucent dark brown with medium beige head which dissipates quickly. Aroma is dark candy sugar, medium body, medium carbonation, and good medium bubble lacing. Taste is dark candy sugar, dark fruit (mostly raisin).

Yeasty and fruity with hints of booze. Main thing I picked up is the carb, which was nice because I was expecting a flat beer, this being Lost Abbey. Well balanced and a good showcase for the american version of the quad.

Barreras (948) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - MAR 6, 2014
Pours a deep dark ominous black color without a distinct aroma. Taste is high in alcohol with a tinge of black licorice. The alcohol is hidden well in this beer. A slight plum flavor, with a good alcohol burn in the aftertaste.

Bottle poured into sniffer. Pours a dark opaque brown with light brown foamy head that quickly recedes to a ring. Sweet and funky slightly raisiny aroma. Smooth brown malt flavor with mild raisin undertones. Very good.
