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.

Shared with my good friend Alldaydrinker. Thanks Jeff! Of all the quadís Iíve ever had, this is by far the most drinkable, while still being complex. Where other quads can tend to be medicinal and metallic in the finish, this one isnít in the slightest. The mouthfeel is round and full, while still being airy like fine Belgian quads and strong ales. The alcohol is hidden just enough to still have a pleasant presence, but at the same time be extremely drinkable. The nose is a pleasant bouquet of dried dark fruits, raisins, brown sugar and caramel. The flavour brings about an added element of bakers cocoa, especially in the finish, rounding out the flavour profile nicely.

UPDATED: JAN 29, 2008 Courtesy of Irishboy thanks Richard! 750 ml bottle. Aged 10 months in my cellar. Poured into trappist with small offwhite head that dissapated to a ring. Murky dark brown color with lots of particulates in suspension. Nose is pungent, dark fruits, brown sugar, alcohol and raisans. Initial taste is sweet, airy, light but caramel stickiness resides well. Dark fruits become also apparent with well indications of the 10.5% abv. Mid palate of cocoa, mollasses and candy sugariness. Finishing with cocoa and mild bitter hops. Well balanced and very tasty! Palate duration is excellent. Light to medium body. Minor head retention.

This beer has one of the best color and aromas ever. The color is like a light cherry red and nut brown mix with no head, and the aroma can be smelled from a mile away. The smell is nice and full of dark fruits mainly dates. As it warmed up and i took a nice sip, it had a nice rich caramel malt with a fruity syrup texture. There was not much of a hop bitterness but it was still full bodied I also like the fruit extracts that were left along the sides of your mouth long after the beer went down your throat.

Pours a dark brown with a small fizzy tan head. Looks a lot like flat-ish Coke. Nose of bread, yeast, alcohol, and raisins. Has an excellent bitterness that lingers. Sweet caramel and fruit. Leaves a lot of alcohol on the tongue. Not much carbonation at all, but has a bright spritz that gives it a sort of light feeling you donít expect from a beer looking and tasting like this.

tap at the brewery - Pours dark amber with very little head. It has a very good malt and dark fruit aroma. The flavor has those same malt and dark fruit notes along with an obvious dosing of alcohol. Thereís a nice, big Abt. taste there, but itís a little too hot and lacks the complexity of some of the great Belgian Abt/Quadrupels.

750 corked and caged, pours into the glass looking more like a shiraz than a beer. Zero head, hardly any carbonation, deep purple/black that is mostly opaque. Not much in the look to let youíre know youíre drinking an abt, let alone a beer. Initial aroma, right after the bottle had been popped, was heavy fruit and very grapey almost like... a shiraz. But once the glass had a chance to breath you got the aromaís youíd expect from this style beer, dark Belgian candy, sour yeastiness, touch of peanut, and plenty of alcohol apparent in the aroma. Flavor is quite sour from the yeast and the alcohol, toffee and dark fruits are also abundant, with flavor notes of white grape and honey as well. Heavy mouth feel with plenty of heat from the alcohol with the funky, medicinal lasting after taste you get from this kind of beer. Truthfully, it was a little much for me. Iíd like to see this beer without the raisins, and maybe with some extra hops to give it a more rounded nose, flavor and finish.

Pours a deep reddish brown with bareley any head. Smells of raisins and spices and maybe a hint of brown sugar molasses. Very oily and smooth and the flavors of rasins and figs are subtle but not overpowering. I canít help but notice that there is barely any carbonation at all, the beer is almost flat except for a thin ring of around the edges of the glass; however the flatness allows me to focus on the flavor of the beer a little more. I cannot believe that this is 10.5%, the alcohol is among the most well hidden iíve ever encountered.

750 mL bottle. Pours a dark cherry-varnish color with small ivory head. The aroma is pretty strong raisin and black cherry with some light wood and chocolate, alcohol, brown sugar, and some general fruity esters. The flavor is cherry, wood, alcohol, and a little bit of ash. The finish is prickly and somewhat hot, and leaves a dry aftertaste. Not bad.
