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, youíll 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.

Dark walnut color with tan head that lingers for a bit. Nose of charred wood, dark pitted fruits, and raisins. Flavor is sweet dark fruits, brown sugar, raisins...and as it warms a touch of milk chocolate. Finish is rich and filling...and a touch hot. Very enjoyable Quad.

After several years of lurking, i was drinking this when i finally decided to submit a rating. A gorgeous beer to look at dark, but clear, with a nice head and great lacing. The taste is complex and sweet with rasins and ripe fruits dancing on the tounge. Its very good but short of the best i have had.

This is one beautiful beer. At first, I thought it was a dark mahogany, but when more closely inspected, itís a deep scarlet, only revealed by backlighting. Head is tan and a bit fizzy. Nose is dried fruit, brown sugar and alcohol. The flavor is the same as the nose, although a bit more subtle, but is the smoothest and creamiest on the palate as any Abt Iíve had.

750ml Bottle: Sweet aroma. Smells of roasted malts, dark ripe fruits, mocha, and caramel. Poured mahogany/ruby in color with a small, beige head that diminished quickly. Clear. Sparkling. Flavor is medium sweet. Tastes of roasted malts, dark ripe fruits, candi sugar, mocha, caramel, some bitter hops, and alcohol. Medium to full body. Thick, syrupy texture. Average carbonation. Sweet, roasted malt and dark fruit finish.

JorisPPattyn (8032) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - APR 21, 2008
Draught (!) Huge, dark-beige head over hazy dark chestnut beer; Very "Belgian" nose with dark fruity, fusels, little coriander-like spices, dark malts and raisins. Sweet, with a little sourish edge. Raisins, grapes, fortified wine, fusels, oak. Very oily-smooth, viscous, and VERY well-bodied. Superb realisation, again, smooth & deadly.

Haslinger (865) - The World of Beer, Texas, USA - APR 19, 2008
Tap @ Port Brewing. Deep amber color,reddish brown. Malty aroma with some chocolate. Biscuit taste with some malt and a touch of hops. Subtle alcohol, loads of malt throughout. Great alcohol warming. Excellent. Would buy again

strong lasting aromas of raisin, fig and the caramely base found in my favorite types of barleywine. poured in a trappist glass, but the head was thin and short lasting. the beer itself though is a respectable mysterious dark dark brown with ripe plum hues and some haze. sweet in the mouth, nearly sticky and off putting. still young and sharp. oh goodness, now i notice a thick sludgy film on the bottom of the glass. looks like thisíll be a two-stager. initially thereís some cherry and walnut, but the sharp alcohol cuts a bit deep and i want to either store another bottle for a year or bring an open flame to the glass and reduce the liquid. after swirling and adding the bonus goodness to the remaining beer in my goblet the beer mellowed significantly as i drank the first part much too quickly to let the octane influence my opinion. the ripe berry notes came out more on top of the sting and the body thickened only a touch. Iíve really been looking forward to this beer, and now I will look equally forward to enjoying an older bottle.

This packs the punch that Lost & Found didnít have. Also brewed with raisins, which lends it an aroma and a flavor of (you guessed it) raisins, along with other dried fruits... but this one sticks to the darker side of the spectrum - plums, figs and grapes rather than apricots. A bit of yeasty bread in there, too, making this like a good sweet bread made with raisins. Pours a deep brown with a thin head, the aroma is *very* sweet, and the carbonation - while lively - isnít overpowering, partly because this beer is much thicker than the others Iíve tried from Lost Abbey. While not quite up to some of the real Belgian quads Iíve tried (Iím still just not sure about raisins), this is a wonderful effort at an incredibly complex beer. Careful, though - this one belies its 10.5%.

Thanks to Hellbilly & JCB for this one! Pours dark brown with reddish hues. Thin tan head and minimal lacing. Boozy aroma. Slight raisin and figs on the mouth-feel with a bitter yeasty finish I get alot of raisin on the after taste

doubleo (1433) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 1, 2008
750ml bottle. Pours dark brown with a thin, fizzy light brown head, fades quick no lace. Smells like extra raisiny raisin bread, sweet fruits and spices. Tastes much the same way, dark sweet fruits and dark spicy bready yeastiness. Ehh, raisin beer not so much. A touch syrupy with crisp carbonation.
