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, youíll 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.

Medium brown color with no head. Nice smell of pit fruits, vanilla. Very light carbonation. A decent taste follows the nose with a pit fruit sweetness . Cloying sweet, yeasty finish. Not a bad beer, but doesnít compare to many belgian examples. Sep16/2007

5000 (6600) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 1, 2008
Bottle: Deep brown, almost black, muddy caramel hues on the edges, no head whatsoever, minimal lacing.   Looks extremely still.   Big dark pitted fruit nose, heaps of raisins, quite bready/malty, a touch of tootsie roll, with minor vinous like qualities.   Doesnít look that appealing, but certainly smells entertaining.   Big raisin/fig/date approach, pretty heavy actually.   Certainly malty, but comes across as a little thin.   Not as thick, bready, or full bodied as I would have thought.   Its almost as if this bottle has been aged for quite a while, even tho its a young bottled beer.   Slightly vinous, maybe even exhibits a bit of wood character.   Tasty, but it almost seems as if its missing something.   Falls flat on the tongue, feels quite still and/or aged.   Young beer this is, for certain, but seems as if it has already peaked.   Falls off the tongue very quickly at the finish.   Very warming, yet not brash.   Good on the nose, and on the tongue, but a little flat and still.   I expected a bit more from this one.   Thanks Larry for the bottle!

MadMan (495) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JAN 1, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 4, 2008 Bottle. 750 corked. I would have liked to see at least one bubble come through this in the pour. Very flat. It did have a dark brown body tinted with red though. It did have a fairly vinous nose. It did have a flat and dark fruity flavor full of warmth and alcohol and woodiness. It did leave me with a crazy headache. Not sure why. Tasty and interesting but with consequences.

Silphium (3190) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - DEC 31, 2007
Deep sediment-laden red-brown body, thin tan head. Heavy aroma, with aggressive prune and raisins, sweet breads, toffee, toast, bitter esters, and alcohol. Sweet, thick body, primarily toffee, sweet breads, dark fruits (raisin and prune), and a touch of cola. Almost a plum pudding. Moderate alcohol notes. A bit sweet, but a fine beer.

after4ever (6914) - Brier, Washington, USA - DEC 28, 2007
750, corked and baled--thanks, Foolish_Mortal! Pours black with a thin, loose tan head. Very light stalactite lacing. Very subdued nose primarily comprised of wood. Bodyís light, almost bordering on the watery. Mid-palate could use a lot more depth and complexity--mostly a raw, tingling oak flavor. Very dry. The finish is rather acetic. Hides the booze pretty well til the end, then it picks up a bit of a rubbing alcohol gaspiness.

egajdzis (5695) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 28, 2007
Poured a chestnut red color with a small, off white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of sherry, light cocoa, black cherry, and vanilla. Taste of dark fruits, vinous, vanilla, cocoa, tobacco, and rummy alcohol in the finish. This seems to have already aged into something really nice, Thanks Mike!

Stine (1713) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 25, 2007
750 ml bottle, thanks to Jason. Firm and thick volcanic red pour; lazy, thin white skin. Pineapple oils and singed caramel glaze a pungent bleu cheese in the aroma; apples, raisins, dry pistachio, and white sugar. So pleasingly heavy, rich, and just dancing with nuances. Taste brings a simple canvas of brandy heat and rich oak tones of toasted vanilla; warming but not hot, smooth, and sensitive. Bold and bitter maple wood, tart cherries, and softly forceful Malbec tannins fill in underneath as the body grows darker, more concentrated, and more serious with every sip. Hints of blackberry and caramelized onions dripping with balsamic lend a tangier zest of sweetness and pleasantly understated sourness; plenty of creme brulee crust tempers all the tangents into a cool and and creamy general statement. Well aged. Phenolic notes, bananas, hot rum and spicy cheeses in staccato bursts before the finish; warming, full, and sparkly in the mouth. Hints of raw cocoa, mint, quieted tobacco and an acidic pulse at the end; conjuring the subtle brilliance of the cuvee as it reveals its full and detailed spectrum of flavors in slow release. Pure, wild, and astonishing.

Dough77 (821) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - DEC 18, 2007
Pours a flat dark amber medium brown color absolutely no head. Noseis of fig, raisin, alcohol, more dark fruits, candi sugars, little brown sugar too. Flavor is really tasty with all the above and some chocolate throwninto the mix. The downfall of this beer is its flatness. I cant tell if it went flat on me or if itís supposed to be this way. It is not the worst flatness Iíve experienced but itís up there. It doesnít detract from the experience as much as it would if the rest of the beer wasnít so friggin spectacular though. Complex and delicous. Didnít feel like it was too hot myself, but close.

Bottle shared at Madness. Pours a dark red brown with a small white head. Yeasty, grainy, boozey aroma. Vinous flavor with some alcohol really shining through. Once again another solid offering from Lost Abbey but it didnít really blow me away.

brentfeesh (1208) - Mansfield, Ohio, USA - DEC 9, 2007
Dark pour with ruby hints. The aroma is full of dark fruits and yeast and a touch of alcohol. The flavor is very similar with dark fruits and alcohol tied together with a yeasty note. Pleanty of raison flavors. I liked it as did everyone else at the party. I probably should have opened it earlier in the evening and made more notes.
