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.

Very dark. Luring smell. But the punch is in the flavor. Satisfying roasted raisin taste. Didn’t think I liked Abt/Quad. Wrong. This was wonderful.

Schultsc (572) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 17, 2007
On tap at the brewery in San Marcos. Cloudy, dark, amber-mahogany with a thick, dense, fine light tan-colored head. Very complex layered aromaa of clove and bananas with molasses, spicebox, figs, raisins, and dried apple. More banana and spice in the flavor with some bready, yeasty fermentation characteristics, toffee, molassess, and roasted grain. Viscous and mouth-coating with good presence. Lots of alcohol in the feel as well with considerable warmth--yet still balanced --with a bittersweet finish.

Ungstrup (29950) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 12, 2007
Bottled. A murky red-brown beer with a thin rim of head. The aroma is sweet malty with strong notes of over ripe fruits and prunes. The flavor is sweet with notes of alcohol, prunes, and over ripe fruit, leading to a dry and slightly woody finish.

AllAboutStout (605) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 11, 2007
Unfortunately, I have acquired a couple of the bottles that have the known "corking" problem. This opened with no pop, and poured a carbonationless liquid. The smell is great. Rich, dark fruits. Mostly the clearly stated raisin. But more dark cherry, blackberry as well. The taste is quite good. Full on the mouthfeel and rich. I prefer my beers not overly carbonated and this is surprisingly good. It needs just a hint of carbonation to add to the mouthfeel, and to slow down my consumption of this thing. Without the carbonation to slow you down, this thing just goes quick. A very satisfying beer that is close to the way I like them, just needs a touch of carbonation and this would be top shelf.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - SEP 7, 2007
Bottle: Thanks Flaco Alto! Deep brown/burgundy in color with a fading bubbly tan head. Has a sweet fruity aroma with lots of raisin and plum-like fruits. Also has brown sugar, evident Belgian-style malts and a nutty hint. The flavor is less sweet than anticipated from the aroma. Somewhat thin in body, but the malts are evident in the flavor. Some dark maple qualities and dried fruits (figs, raisins, dates) The later flavors give off some earthy qualities like peat, tobacco, and a hint of smokiness in the finish. Not bad, but a bit overrated.

Mode: Bottle
Source: Mail Order
Vintage: 2007
Appearance: dark muddy brown with ruby edges, wispy beige head, touch of drippy lace
Flavor: sweet malt flavor with lots of dates and raisons and other ripe dark fruits plus a hint of alcohol after warming a bit
Overall: rich malt flavor, lots of ripe fruit, balancing roasted bitterness is a bit too much and distracting and should fade with age, only a touch of sweetness comes with warming but the bitterness holds it back from being all it should be, richness continues to grow and picks up some chocolate along the way

Score: 3.9 to 4.1
Appearance: clear dark brown with ruby edges, fine tan head, bits of lace
Aroma: rich and sweet fruity aroma, light spicyness
Flavor: rich fruity flavor, caramel sweetness brings out the rich ripe fruity esters, light bitterness still present but has subsided allowing the fruit character to emerge, nice spicyness, fleeting hint of alcohol
Overall: age is helping this one along nicely

masonjer (609) - Holt, Michigan, USA - AUG 30, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 4, 2007 Poured with no head into a glass. Deep brown color. Smell was incredible, red wine, raisins, rum soaked fruits, brandy. This beer was very low on carbonation. The cork sort of fell out. I don’t know if it is always this way or if this was lacking in carbonation. Could be the plane ride. Anyways, taste was huge wine notes, raisins, dark fruits, candi sugar, buiscuit. Very nice, closest beer I have had to wine. Overall, I loved the aroma and flavor, if this beer had a little carbonation it would be outstanding. Good stuff!
