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.

UPDATED: SEP 9, 2008 Bottle (handbottled i a Jack Russel Captain Boomer IPA Bottle) at RF07 - At the Plan B Tasting Session...... Thanks Guys !! Dark brown - offwhite head. Chokolate, yeasty, berries, raisins, fruity, sweetness, medium hoppy, caramel. First I thought it should be an IPA, but now I know it’s not, I understand because it is a lot more Belgian...!! --------&# Just had this again. Bottle at Sune’s (Thanks). Candy, wood, ryebread, dark bread, chocolate, brown sugar - I love it !!!

RagallachMC (631) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - JUL 18, 2007
750ml bottle from miketd. Aroma: Rich maltiness with a light bready note. Raisins and grapes, caramel, light spice, and a dark earthy note. Alcohol comes forward as it warms. Appearance: Dark brown in color with some reddish highlights. Very small head. No lacing. Undercarbonated. Flavor: Rich maltiness with notes of bread, chocolate, toasted nuts. Dark fruits come through strong. A touch of anise. Medium-light bitterness and a sweet-syrupy finish (mostly due to lack of carbonation). Palate: Medium bodied. Low carbonation. Overall: Despite the score, this was a good beer. The lack of carbonation just prevented me from liking it more. Pity.

Bottle. A dark redish beer with a beige head. The aroma is light roasted malt and lots of fruitiness, the taste is the same but sweet and light alcoholic. Medium body with a sweet light alcoholic finish.

beerbill (3274) - Laurel, New York, USA - JUL 18, 2007
750 ml bottle. Pours a deep dark brown with some red highlights when held to a light. Small biscuit colored head that quickly faded to a thin film. Lovely aroma of dark raisins, caramel and brown sugar. Flavor is just as nice with plenty of raisins, caramel, and just a hint of brown sugar. A bit sweet but not excessive. Some hops at the finish add a touch of bitterness that lingers lightly on the palate after the swallow. Almost velvety mouthfeel. The alcohol was very well hidden with virtually no alcohol burn. Very good stuff.

LooseCannon (938) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - JUL 17, 2007
Thanks to Gputty. 750 ml Bottle. Pours reddish copper in color with brown head which does not last long. Aroma and taste of raisins and roasted malt with a semi-dry finish.

trokini (1025) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 16, 2007
Murky brown pour with absolutely no head. I tried to force one out and there was nothing. Raisins, prunes, brown sugar, dank yeast, and earth in the aroma. Sweet but a little smoky in the taste. Molasses, more raisins, toasted bread, and dusty yeast esters mix well. The lack of carbonation gives this a syrupy, liquer-like quality. Still, this is very good.

hopdog (8530) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 15, 2007
750ml bottle. Poured a darker and murky brownish color with a smalle sized off white hear. Aromas of dark fruits, caramel, sugary and yeast. Tastes of raisins (stronger towards the bottom of the bottle), plums, sugary, caramel, yeast, and fruity. On the sweet side. Some alcohol in the finish. Full bottle put me in a good mood!

Bottle at beerbistro. "Have you ever thought about what you’ll be drinking when the Four Horsemen arrive?" Unfortunately for the Judgment Day I already answered this question a moment ago - If God smiles fondly upon me it will be The Angels Share! This admittedly nice beer was a fairly massive let down after sampling its sibling just prior. <P> Very dark brown body with not much of a small brown head. I swear I smelled peanut butter in the first sniff of the glass but I can’t imagine that that is what it was. Light chocolate notes, brown sugar, and caramel malt all make fleeting appearances. Sweet rich malt flavour, with more caramel and light brown sugar give a fairly sweet flavour, yet it finishes on the bitter side, presumably from the hops. Medium palate is smooth but under carbonated. (3+). Hopefully another bottle will find me so I can try it out of the shadow of its big brother.

jarspag (601) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUL 13, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2008 Bottled. Deep dark mahogany - absolutely no head - flat as can be. Aroma is its best quality - raisins, caramel, dark malts, belgian yeast. Flavor gets a little too syrupy and sweet for me - some carbonation would help the mouthfeel. Not bad, but not great . . . give me Angels Share.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUL 13, 2007
Bottles thanks to theisti and toncatcher: Pours a barely transparent dark mahogany with a small clingy-lacing dark tan head. Aroma of sweet doughy dark caramel malt with nice Belgian yeasty notes and a hint of candy sugar and raisins. Body starts with a fairly full, sticky, dark caramely toasted maltiness, some earthy brown sugar and plummy raisin complexity along with plenty of carbonation. Finishes doughy and slightly warming. Needs some time to age, but should be pretty good in a year or two.
