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, 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.

Pours very dark brown with no head. Nose is raisins, touch of antiseptic wood and just a funky edge to it, but not an overpowering one. Flavor is smooth. Nice even qualities to it with a minor sweet edge. Feel is smooth with a good carbonation to it. Easily drinkable. A well balanced quad with a sufficient enough edge to make it interesting.

UPDATED: JUN 13, 2008 Bottle. Opaque reddish-brown with a tan head that dissipates. Rich sweet aroma of malt, raisins, dates, molasses. Flavor is both sweet and sharp, with tastes that come in stages, of dark fruits (cherries, raisins, dates, figs) and malt, with a bite of alcohol on the finish. Nice bitterness and a big, full mouthfeel. Incredibly tasty.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 3, 2008
Bottled. Thanks to omhper. clear burgundy brown colour with a low grey head. Big fruity aroma of figs, prunes, cherries, caramel, leather and anise-seeds. Full, soft malty flavour of yeast, fudge, sweet licorice, cherries and alcohol. Full creamy mouthfeel. Long aftertaste of nuts, prunes, figs, mild spices and alcohol. Nice one.

omhper (23426) - TyresŲ, SWEDEN - JAN 31, 2008
Bottled. Dark mahogany, brief head. Aroma of cocoa powder. Sweet and soft, full bodied. Lots of dark chocolate with notes of hay and orange. Intriguing up front, but I didnít find as much depth as I hoped. Good - not fantastic.

Pours nicely with a small white head. As far as appearance is concerned, it is a dark brown with shades of red rounding it out. The scent is tart, as is the taste whose raisin and plum flavors come to the forefront only to be replaced by the a bitter/alcohol laden finish. Overall a great a ale that Iím exited to age.

glkaiser (1214) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 30, 2008
Dark cherry brown with medium head. Aroma of brown sugar and dark fruit. Alcohol is present throughout; this would age nicely. Lots of raisin, plums and caramel. A little rough and I would definitely think this would be better after a couple of years in the cellar. But, enjoyable fresh. The bitterness is fairly strong and sets it apart from some of the standard versions of this style. Thick and a meal in itself.

Hilariously like Bourbon County Stout in its aged quality, itís smoky fruit and roasty/black licorice aroma and mid palatte. A very syrupy quad, though for complexity and overall experience I will take 10 Commandments any old day of the week.

Shared with my good friend Alldaydrinker. Thanks Jeff! Of all the quadís Iíve ever had, this is by far the most drinkable, while still being complex. Where other quads can tend to be medicinal and metallic in the finish, this one isnít in the slightest. The mouthfeel is round and full, while still being airy like fine Belgian quads and strong ales. The alcohol is hidden just enough to still have a pleasant presence, but at the same time be extremely drinkable. The nose is a pleasant bouquet of dried dark fruits, raisins, brown sugar and caramel. The flavour brings about an added element of bakers cocoa, especially in the finish, rounding out the flavour profile nicely.

UPDATED: JAN 29, 2008 Courtesy of Irishboy thanks Richard! 750 ml bottle. Aged 10 months in my cellar. Poured into trappist with small offwhite head that dissapated to a ring. Murky dark brown color with lots of particulates in suspension. Nose is pungent, dark fruits, brown sugar, alcohol and raisans. Initial taste is sweet, airy, light but caramel stickiness resides well. Dark fruits become also apparent with well indications of the 10.5% abv. Mid palate of cocoa, mollasses and candy sugariness. Finishing with cocoa and mild bitter hops. Well balanced and very tasty! Palate duration is excellent. Light to medium body. Minor head retention.

This beer has one of the best color and aromas ever. The color is like a light cherry red and nut brown mix with no head, and the aroma can be smelled from a mile away. The smell is nice and full of dark fruits mainly dates. As it warmed up and i took a nice sip, it had a nice rich caramel malt with a fruity syrup texture. There was not much of a hop bitterness but it was still full bodied I also like the fruit extracts that were left along the sides of your mouth long after the beer went down your throat.
