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.

kramer (5360) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 7, 2007
25 oz bottle, via adrian910ss. Pours a dark garnet body with tinges of purple under a small creamy light brown head. Lots of thick lacing. The nose is as much raisin as it is malt. Very fruity with lots of yeast and a touch of alcohol. Quite sweet smelling. Big heavy fruity malt grabs you first, then the sweet raisin and alcohol come on in the finish. The alcohol is a tad hot, but not overpowering. Very yeasty on the finish as well. Mouthfeel is full bodied and sweet, but not sticky or cloying. Warming all the way down the esophagus. Overall, this was decent, but definately one of my least favorite from Lost Abbey. I really don’t believe that this is the same as MOAB. I don’t even think that this has the potential to become what MOAB had been when I had it.

brewblackhole (1588) - Muskego, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 2, 2007
Monsterous dark fruit,icluding dates,raisiinsand apple, lot more alchohol presence then the monks would have put in, surpringly little head, taste was a montage of malts and yeast esters dark fruits and a little rum cake dominating, complex for sure, a little to much alcohol noticed to rank this among the top, but a year of storage might fix that

corby112 (2214) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 28, 2007
Pours a very dark brown with small beige head. Like all of the beers in this series the aroma is dominated by dark fruits especially raisin. Also, a bit more alcohol in the scent. Complex taste with a nice balance of dark fruits, figs, chocolate and alcohol. A bit too much alcohol taste and warmth that takes away from the smoothness of a beer like their Lost and Found.

Comments: Perhaps a bit young? This was a really different approach, quite hoppy (saaz?), bitter in the finish despite its initial grapey and juicy goodness. Despite its originalities, this remains delicious and richly malty.

Kinz (3507) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - NOV 26, 2007
Richmond "industry" gathering. Dark brown appearance. Huge caramel malt and cherry aroma. Flavor is thickly malty in the vein of a Thomas Hardy brew. Great depth of flavor. Hint of earthiness in the finish. Awesome brew. Another favorite from the tasting.

Dorwart (2439) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - NOV 23, 2007
Thin head of fine bubbles that recedes quickly. Strong aroma loaded with raisins, molasses, sweet malts and some roastyness. Color is a dark brown. Rich roasted flavor with lots of raisins and dates again. Roasted grains, sweet malts and molasses. Noticable alcohol kick. Little bit syrupy. Finishes warm and sweet with a thick lingering malty sweetness. A very good quad.

alafito (334) - tijuana, MEXICO - NOV 23, 2007
Dark pour with very little carbonation. Robust body with lots of dark berrys, cocoa, wood and a bit of caramel and hops too. Very inviting. Not a bad beer - full-flavored and well-rounded.The high alcohol is warming and pleasant - not astringent at all.
