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.

Courtesy of Dragonstout. Pours a dark brown with a little head. Aroma is mostly booze, with some fruit on the nose. Tastes of typical sticky sweet dark fruits. Lots of spice, and caramel. Finishes with the typical Quad palate. Very good.

BlackForestCO (978) - Aurora, Colorado, USA - MAR 27, 2008
UPDATED: DEC 14, 2008 Another bottle graciously shared by Crosling. Poured a deep hazy brown color with a thin off-white head that diminished to a ring. Aroma of dark fruit, raisin, yeast, and light alcohol. Light, semi-tart entry leads into a lightly bitter finish with undertones of plum, raisin, and light alcohol. Smooth of the palate with a nice bitter bite on the finish. Thanks Nick.

grant (842) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - MAR 24, 2008
Cloudy red-brown. Minimal head. Raisiny, roasty celery-infused aroma. Flavor is initially tart, then pruny and palate-coatingly smooth and a bit clumsy. Light bits of dark chocolate, coconut and brown sugar. Finishes with mild tartness and well-integrated bitterness. Nicely done.

DYCSoccer17 (3620) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 23, 2008
750 mL bottle shared by grant. Gracias. Pleasant fruity and sweet aroma. Floral, chocolate, tobacco, estery bananas, caramel, brown sugar, and raisins are detected. Lots of raisins. I love the smell of this. Mildly hazy ruddy light mahogany body with a smallish khaki head and trace lacing. Raisiny, vinous, caramel chewy maltiness to start. Becomes a bit chalky and dry with some lingering bitterness. A little roasty cocoa/chocolate bitterness is present late. Flavorful and nice, but the body and mouthfeel seem off and take away from the beer.

chicagodri (1683) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 22, 2008
Had it on tap at Lost Abbey. I really like the artwork on this beer, really cool. Pours nice dark brown with a dark fruit aroma. Nice fruit flavor and malty sweetness. Lost Abbey had a lot of good stuff when I went. Very solid.

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 21, 2008
Thanks to By The Bottle for this keeper. Poured a red-brown-amber body with a lacy whitish head. Dark fruits, candy sugar and yeast in the nose. Liquorish/anise notes. Fruity and woodiness carry through all the way. Very very good.

vyvvy (5644) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - MAR 21, 2008
Pours brown with a crimson hue and a tan sudsy patchy head. The aroma has toffee, biscuits, raisins, figs, other dark fruits, anise and molasses. Medium / full body with some soft carbonation that is lightly harsh. The flavor begins with thick dry dark fruits, spice, light anise and very dense dark maltiness. The finish has very dark dry black licorice, pepperiness and is on the chalky side. This is a well done and unique take on a quad. While it is quite good it is more of a special occasion beer and not something I ’d want very often.

TeamTrappist (832) - jericho, New York, USA - MAR 18, 2008
750 ml bottle. Poured dark brown, with a big sweet smell, of raisins,prunes, maybe figs. Initial taste was very sweet, warmed a touch and that seemed to mellow. Quite strong, without much hint of alcohol. Very nice beer.

pineypower (3049) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - MAR 16, 2008
Pours out a nice dark brown with a "Pi" like swirl of white, which is the only sign of a head. Aroma is very nice and of raisin and dark fruit with slight alcohol. Taste is very complex with a solid balance. Dark fruits, mainly raisin and slight fig go into some sweetness. The finish is of some alcohol, mixed with slight tartness. Very solid, similar to Mother of all but also slightly different. Once again Lost Abby comes through.
