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.

Tmoney99 (10455) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 16, 2007
Bottle sample at Cincy Ratebeer Gathering. Poured a dark brown color with an average creamy off-white head that mostly lasted and produced fair lacing. Heavy complex chocolate and fruity aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture. Good complex bittersweet flavor with a medium bitter finish of moderate duration. Good complex standout brew.

Pours a deep brown with some copper highlights when held to the light. Head poured medium creamy light tan with some nice lacing. Aroma of raisins, molasses, peacans, bananas, vinous, brown sugar, dark fruits, loads of malty sweetness, mix of Belgian spices and yeast. Flavor was a mix of dark fruits, toasted malts, sweet malts, raisins, hints of smoke, mixed nuts. Just a great mix of nice aromas and flavors. Probably the best American Quad I have had.

hopscotch (8861) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 8, 2007
Bottle... This beer rocks!… Mostly clear, mahogany ale with no head. Vinous nose with notes of dried plum, dark raisins, dark chocolate, overripe banana and tons of other rich, dark fragrances I can’t seem to place. The malty-sweet flavor also provides medium hop and alcohol bitterness with noteworthy molasses, dark chocolate, brandy, dark raisins, dried plum and slight acidity. Full-bodied with pillow-soft carbonation. Lengthy, bitter-sweet finish. Cheers to growler for sharing his bottle of this world class brew!

Is this supposed to be flat? Winey, probably because of the uncarbonated fill. Thick and sweet: malt, raisins, berries, chocolate. I would like a carbonated version.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - JUL 25, 2007
Corked bottle from Flaco Alto. Thanks! Pours a raspberry brown with an active carbonation and lazy tan yeast mingling at the bottom. Streams of raisin, peach, sweet yeast, and cookie dough emanate from the glass. Flavor is smoky and chocolatey, with hints of coffee, cocoa, and raisin. An ever-so-slight alcohol bite emerges at the end alongside a lingering bitterness. Nice mouthfeel that really tickles the tastebuds and lulls them into euphoria. Much appreciated, Sebastian!

RBSG 2007 Grand Tasting. Clouody brown with no head. Raisin and malt dominate, some brown sugar. Certainly reminiscent of MOAB.

750ml bottle: Pours to a totally opaque dark brown that when held to the light allows little light through except towards the very top, showing just a bit of a lighter nut brown color. A small to medium sized tan colored head forms atop the beer, one that slowly fades to a tiny ring around the outside of the glass. The nose has an intense, sweet malt flavor, showing hints of dark raisins, sweet caramel & toffee malt, along with a darker molasses scent, though without any acidic scent associated with molasses. Sticking my nose deeply in the glass allows me to experience some aromas of fig, smoked fig, light vanilla bean or mild oak wood, and some hints of herbs. Taste is alcohol at first, followed by dark malt syrup, caramelized sugars, roasted dried raisin, hints of bitter hops in the background that are largely overcome by the sticky-sweet notes of bark, chocolate (though without the sweetness), with bits of a caramel/grain malt flavor showing through. Medium-full bodied, feeling very heavy in the mouth, medium carbonated, though showing very smooth & mild bottle-conditioned carbonation. Finishes with some charcoal, bitter roasted malts, sweet caramel/chocolate malts, and a bit of burned wood later on the palate.

Great flavor potential, but I’ll have to rerate this one. My bottle had no carbonation.
