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.

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.

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 (5525) - 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 (3031) - 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.

bhensonb (13824) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 15, 2008
Vinous, light fruit aromas. Dark brown color with ruby hilites. Medium body with mild, creamy carbonation. Flavor is large, malty sweetness with raisin/plum and enough hop to balance the malt. It’s sort of medium dark fruity ale. Finish is reasonably dry with indications of wood. The whole thing is very smooth, and delicious. Very nice ale.

RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 10, 2008
Spicy almost wine-y aroma. Raisins come through along with nutmeg in the flavor. Fairly sweet, but with a finish on the drier side.

DarkMagus (499) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 10, 2008
Pours a super dark brown, almost blackish color. Thick and creamy, but rapidly fading off-white head. Rich sweet fruity aroma with loads of biscuity malts, candy sugar, dried fruits (raisins of course, along with hints of dried dates and cherries), some slight acidic vinousness, and maybe the slightest hint of alcohol. Flavors were hugely sweet and malty, with a very nice sweet-bread/cookie character, with more dried fruit: dates, raisins, plums, apples... a bit of candy-like sugariness, some alcohol, but not too much. A minor but noticeable trace of hops... perhaps because this was a pretty fresh sample. Ok, and the alcohol. Pretty intense, took some getting used to, would like this beer to be a bit gentler. But overall, great stuff... will definitely buy this again as I’m always a sucker for this style.

Goodgrief (1978) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - MAR 10, 2008
July 2007 - Dark brown pour, decent head and lacing. Aroma of dark fruit and candied sugar. Flavor was rich dark fruits, candied sugar and moderate level of spices. Wonderful blend of flavors and a rich coating mouthfeel. Very enjoyable.

750 mL bottle - had been holding on to this for a few months, but couldn’t wait any longer; pours dark brown and clear around the edges; light tan head quickly fades; lots of lacing on the first glass; dank musky aromas of dates and oranges; very rich and everything about this is creamy: aromas, texture and flavors; slight burn on a few sips, but just phenomenal overall; i’m glad this seems to be steadily supplied here in town
