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.

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 you’re know you’re 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 aroma’s you’d 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. I’d like to see this beer without the raisins, and maybe with some extra hops to give it a more rounded nose, flavor and finish.

dark fruit aroma, blackish purple appearance, soft and gentle at first then the raisins hit along with strong alcohol, finishes dry with some chocolate notes

Rusty (1545) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JAN 22, 2008
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 can’t 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 i’ve ever encountered.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - JAN 21, 2008
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.

nhorween (645) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 20, 2008
UPDATED: AUG 1, 2008 Bottle. Dark reddish pour. Resiny and thick - slightly medicinal. Tons of raisins everywhere, dark fruit, alcohol in the finish. Big malt character - toffee, brown sugar. Decent, I can see that, but I didn’t enjoy it as much as I thought I would. Rerate - a big round quad, sweetness is well balanced by the alcohol content. Clearly well brewed. 750ml, cork and cage, at Blind Tiger.

Excellent. Brown pour with a decent tan head. Big malty nose with notes of figs, raisins. Flavor is extra rich and malty with a huge alcohol presence. Nice and robust body. Wonderful beer.

BeerandBlues2 (10827) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 15, 2008
8th Big Beers, Belgians, and Barleywines. Pours clear brown with a small, frothy, off-white head, diminishing with fair lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (cookie, caramel), light hops (grass), average yeast (horse blanket, earth) with notes of dates and maple syrup. Full bodied, creamy texture, average carbonation, and a bitter finish. Average duration, moderate sweetness and acidity, light bitterness.
