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.

JJClark (551) - Roscoe, Illinois, USA - AUG 26, 2007
750ml bottle from trade with John C. Thanks John! Pours a rich mahogany color with a medium size off white head. Aroma of bread dough, malt, brown sugar and over ripe fruit. Taste is yeasty and chewy. Flavor of raisns, plums and hops with a slight sweet malt undertone. Has a bit of odd flavor in the finish.

RiverHorse (457) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 26, 2007
Pours a dark amber color with a very small, quarter inch head into the trappist glass. There was barely any lacing. There was scents of raisins, malt, barley and faint alcohol. A very warming feel rushed to the palate on the first sip. Flavors of dried fruit, figs, raisins, malt and roasted nuts were present. There was a sweet play on the palate up front with a dry finish. A very good quad.

750 ml. bottle thanks to Mullman. Clear cola colored with a small beige head. Aroma of dark dried fruits, brown sugar and chocolate malt. Flavor starts off mildly sweet, with some dried fruits, brown sugar and black bread, before turning much drier on the finish.

My bottle (750ml) shared with HogTownHarry, GregClow, mds & tupalev -- courtesy of fordest. Pours a very deep hazy red with an average size diminishing off-white head. Aroma’s quite sweet with some slightly roasted caramel malt, sugar, spices and dark fruit -- very nice. Flavour’s also sweet with caramel malt, dark fruit, yeast, alcohol and spices. Some booze in the bitter, slightly astringent finish. Medium to full bodied. Very enjoyable, an excellent beer!

bfeldmann (1048) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - AUG 23, 2007
Poured a brown color with small head. Aroma was dark fruits, raisins yeast and some floral hops. Flavor was much the same with plums and cherries coming out. Was a good beer just nothing amazing.

Gorbalev (2924) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 19, 2007
Bottle shared with Blankboy, GregClow, Mds, and Hogtown Harry, courtesy of blankboy. Hazy reddish brown, small head. Slightly smoky, strong dark fruit, sweet aroma - very nice. Good taste - sweet and spicy. Decent carbonation. Some spiciness mid to end. Complex and solid.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 19, 2007
Translucent cherry cola in color with pinpoint bubbles hugging the glass and popping on top. Aromatic assurances abound from prunes and black fruited figs, graced by brown sugar. Broiled dates and chocolate soot on slabs of black currant further caress the olfactory. A rig of caramelized and slightly burnt rhubarb sings scentimatically as well. Flavor comes in as ripe for the picking. Black cherries meet a burnt raspberry chocolate underbelly while figs and dates droll up more dark fruited wonderment. Ash crusted pecans create a burnt, woodsy backdrop and the currant and dried concord jam on cocoa rye balances the aggression of the ale. Raw, piney bitterness is kept in check by the singed chocolate bricks. Fuller bodied and bountiful at every angle. It builds momentum through the night. Burnt caramel and blackened - yet caramelized - prune-laden and cocoa-nip accentuated - figgy pudding lays into the finish. Many thanks for the bottle, tpkenned!

GregClow (2891) - 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 (6101) - 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.
