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.

Praetorian (86) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 20, 2008
Dark brown in color with a good sized, light brown head with decent lacing. The aroma is dominated by dark fruits with notes of chocolate and molasses. The flavor is of plums, dates and molasses with a hint of oak. Finishes clean. The texture is syrupy. Overall I’d say its a great beer with a very complex and relaxed flavor.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - AUG 18, 2008
RBSG 2008. On tap pours darker brown with a smooth khaki head. Sweet plum and cherry in the flavor, to a dry spicy finish. Hints of raisin and chocolate show in the finish. A small amount of excess alcohol comes through, but isn’t to distracting.

SpringsLicker (3417) - Tennessee, USA - AUG 14, 2008
Dark brown pour with a minimal head of tan. Malty, spicy, bready, complex aroma. Sweet fruity flavor with a smooth body and a touch of alcohol. Nice one.

puzzl (3258) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 9, 2008
1 y/o bottle bought at the Blind Tiger. Huge sweet aroma is very toasty, loaded with raisin, pumpernickel bread, red wine, spice. Deep complexity. A lot of toasty sweetness in the flavor, with plum and raisin. Has a bit of a thin body and slight alcohol burn. Only one year old but tastes older, not that that’s a bad thing. A good ager but probably not something people would want to hold on to for much longer.

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 5, 2008
Bottle from over a year ago (the first batch to make it to PA). Nice looking brown color with barely a head on it. Aroma of brown sugar, spices, cinnamon, and dark fruits. Flavor is quite sweet - caramel, burnt sugars, brown sugar, heavy raisin, and bittersweet chocolate abount. A tad boozy on the first pass, but it calmed quite a bit. Might have liked a bit more carbonation, but perhaps the first bottling was less consistent - still tasty and smooth. Another really good PP/LA beer.

This abbey quad pours a dark brown color from a corked 750ml bottle. Medium sized beige foamy head with decent retention. The aroma is dark fruit, malts, some yeast and sweet. A full bodied Abbey Quad. The malts are caramel and sweet, with lots of dark fruit and roasty malts, combine nicely with some semi-sweet chocolate flavors. The hops are earthy and a touch bitter for a quad. Nice carbonation. Touch of yeast and a little funk?, but that could be the bitterness. The chocolate flavors intensify as it warms. Very nice sipping beer. Nice sweet malt finish. Hides the alcohol very well. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is sweet.

Bomber, shared. Pours a deep brown color with those gorgeous ruby-red edges noticeable. Aroma is a gorgeous incantation of dark fruit, caramel, and a Belgian yeast strain. Flavor is the same, with the alcohol amazingly well-hidden and the flavors exploding and then dancing across your tongue. I absolutely loved this - one of my all-time favorites in my all-time favorite style.
