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.

Bottle thanks to davinci. Dark brown with beige head and lacing. Plum and alc with a little red fruit, malt sweetne. Plum, some alc (not in a bad way), red fruit, roasted malt, a little tobacco. A little syrupy medium body. A perfectly in style abt, this is quite well done.

SethBA (3) - Riverside, California, USA - JUN 2, 2008 does not count
Poured sort of creamy, thicker than other Belgians. Bottle conditioned residue. It had a frothy one-two finger head that was a light mocha color. Its flavors changed quickly from deep fruits to plums/prunes. The carbonation was good on this particular bottle.

highibus (755) - Vail, Arizona, USA - JUN 1, 2008
Pours a super deep mahogany with a thin white head. Aroma of cherry and sweet malt. Probably one of my fav belgian style ales. Super beer.

SpudClampDawg (1029) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - MAY 30, 2008
750ml bottle: Big, black pour with a two finger, mocha head that settles into a ring around the neck. Lots of dark chocolate and plum in the dark and malty nose. Some esthers try to push through, but the malt bill overrides. Thick, chewy mouthfeel. An esthery ride takes over the tongue on first sip - lots of deep fruit, apples, pears, etc. A second wall of dark malts follow up with bitter chocolate and rum drenched plums. The alcohol is apparent and heavy, battling the smoothness of the malts. Maybe this botte needs some time to even out, but as is it is pretty mediocre.

JAXSON (535) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 30, 2008
Poured deep brown with absolutely no head. I was immediately concerned that the bottle was flat, and it pretty much was. Flavor was alot of the round, chewy malt I find in Lost Abbey beers, with raisins, plums, prunes, and some nuts. Carbonation would have been a good thing in this instance.

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 (1577) - 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.
