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.

GregClow (2847) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 18, 2007
Bottle shared with blankboy, HogTownHarry, mds and tupalev - courtesy of blankboy. Reddish-amber colour with a wispy head. Aroma is quite sweet and spicy, with notes of roast malt and coffee. Mouthfeel is soft, very nice. Flavour is sweet off the top, with dark fruit and sugar notes, and a dry yeastiness towards the finish.

GG (2039) - NorCal, California, USA - AUG 17, 2007
I think that I would have enjoyed this one a bit better if the alcohol wasn’t so damned prominant. I really reminded me of drinking some kind of fortified wine at times. An aroma of dark fruit, brown sugar, cherries, and plums. Appearance was a rusty brown, cloudy with no head. Mouthfeel was hot with alcohol. Flavor was an interesting contrast between sweet, dark fruits, candi sugar, some spicyness, and the high alcohol content that’s not hidden in the least. A good beer but one that I think will be even better in a few more years."

HogTownHarry (6042) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 16, 2007
Bottle (750ml - corked and caged). Shared with blankboy, GregClow, mds and tupalev, blankboy’s bottle. Deep hazy mahogany, small off-white head. Aroma reminds me a bit of Traquair Jacobite - strong sweet spice, yeast, very sweet roast malt - smooth and elegant. The taste follows, a little sour, the pungency of the yeast detracts a bit. Solid body, very bitter and almost astringent (yeast/spice), mild carbonation, long malty/pungent finish. Excellent NorAm attempt at a quad.

RedCloud (129) - Rhode Island, USA - AUG 16, 2007
Pours a deep raspberry with little head. Smells of of deep plum, raisin, and grape, with ripe tropical tones (banana). Tastes of slight malt with grape, sweet plum, vanilla, and ripened banana. Very little carbonation, with a sweet finish.

Pailhead (4572) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - AUG 16, 2007
Courtesy of Styles and Secret Santa July ’07.

Bottle: The aroma consists of raisins, alcohol, chocolate, faint plum, grapes, and a hint of smoke. It pours a muddy reddish-brown with a small beige head. The flavor starts with chocolate and caramel with a light raisin backbone. The finish has notes of plum, chocolate, and light alcohol flavor and burn. Full bodied with soft carbonation.

Tmoney99 (10399) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 16, 2007
Bottle sample at Cincy Ratebeer Gathering. Poured a dark brown color with an average creamy off-white head that mostly lasted and produced fair lacing. Heavy complex chocolate and fruity aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture. Good complex bittersweet flavor with a medium bitter finish of moderate duration. Good complex standout brew.

TomDecapolis (4425) - Lawrence, Kansas, USA - AUG 10, 2007
Pours a deep brown with some copper highlights when held to the light. Head poured medium creamy light tan with some nice lacing. Aroma of raisins, molasses, peacans, bananas, vinous, brown sugar, dark fruits, loads of malty sweetness, mix of Belgian spices and yeast. Flavor was a mix of dark fruits, toasted malts, sweet malts, raisins, hints of smoke, mixed nuts. Just a great mix of nice aromas and flavors. Probably the best American Quad I have had.

hopscotch (8776) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 8, 2007
Bottle... This beer rocks!… Mostly clear, mahogany ale with no head. Vinous nose with notes of dried plum, dark raisins, dark chocolate, overripe banana and tons of other rich, dark fragrances I can’t seem to place. The malty-sweet flavor also provides medium hop and alcohol bitterness with noteworthy molasses, dark chocolate, brandy, dark raisins, dried plum and slight acidity. Full-bodied with pillow-soft carbonation. Lengthy, bitter-sweet finish. Cheers to growler for sharing his bottle of this world class brew!

stubby (334) - Santee, California, USA - AUG 5, 2007
Is this supposed to be flat? Winey, probably because of the uncarbonated fill. Thick and sweet: malt, raisins, berries, chocolate. I would like a carbonated version.

RFD Pizza Port/Port/Lost Abbey tastin 6/20 - Absolutly no head. Gorgous, rich stout. I rather liked
