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.

cmillward (497) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAY 30, 2008
Poured a brown/garnet with a light tan head. Huge brown sugar on the nose, doughy malts, dark fruits. Bready and sweet, dark fruit again, raisins come through more in the flavor than in the aroma. No roastiness, but picking up a little chocolate. Alcohol shows through a little too much. Med-mouthfeel, nicely carbed.

holdenn (2088) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 29, 2008
5/22/08 750 ml bottle thanks to Boltz5555 for sending me this one. Pours a red brown color with a brown head. Nose is yeasty with raisins and dough, dried fruit and brown sugar. Nice smooth carbonation. Mostly dried fruit flavors with sweet and burnt malts. Its a little boozy and watery as well. Slightly disappointed, but I’ll certainly try this one again.

alraicercsu (166) - Ft.Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 28, 2008
750ml bottle. Pours dark dark brown basically black with a light tan head. Good smell and taste almost like a carbonated wine. Really shocked best beer I have had with rasin in it. I want more.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAY 27, 2008
750 from Saints Club. I’d been leery of this one because of the advertised raisins. Not because I have anything against raisins, but because it seemed like a candidate for flavor singularity/dominance. Shoulda trusted Tomme, as it turns out. While the raisins are there - delectable and slightly tart rather than processed or sugary - it’s part of a monstrously good Abt that rivals some of the best Belgian styles out there. Man, what a brewery.

bleeng (1565) - Houston nowhere near Beersel, Texas, USA - MAY 25, 2008
750 bottle. Pours black with a small brown head. Nose of alcohol, sweetness, raisins, caramel, chocolates. Thick, chewy, sticky, full flavored of molasses, syrup, sweet fruits (figs, dates, raisins). Alcohol presents itself as the beer warms. Well done and very drinkable.

kegbear (436) - Orange, California, USA - MAY 25, 2008
Bottle from Saints club. Dark dark rich amber colour. Wonderful aroma of fresh baked fruit cakes cooling on the rack. Sweet dried fruit and brown sugar flavor. Finishes bittersweet. Smooth palate. Would buy again.

sauceyhops (104) - carlsbad, California, USA - MAY 25, 2008
Picked a bottle up from the Pizza Port bottle shop in Carlsbad. Pours a red/brown with little head. Nose of dark fruits. Amazing mouthfeel with flavor of raisins, dark fruit, and spices. The flavor sits on the tongue for minutes after tasting. I will definitely be picking up a couple more of these.

JFURYCAT (1079) - East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 24, 2008
Bottle from Sabatinis Pizza in Exeter, PA. Striking aroma and flavor of biting dark cherry/raisin saddled with grapes, plums, chocolate and an aftertaste which kind of reminds me of a bitter roasted juicy fruit gum with a shade of wood. (if it was a bit less on the listerine side, this would be in my top ten!) This is where the beer turns dry on my tongue after the creamy fruit layer hits my lips. The malts are very prominent and the hops come out in the finish. This finish became more notable as the beer warmed up.

Thanks to BDR for sharing. 750 bottle. Opaque, dark brown pour. Aroma of dark fruit and spices. Flavor of fig, raisin and spices. Thick, smooth mouthfeel. Outstanding beer!

Brown bodied, tan head. Weak meaty aroma, sweet, brown sugar, dark fruit - plums and raisins. Flavor is predominantly dry dark fruit.
