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.

Sammy (8092) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 31, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 10, 2007 cross-style Belgian strong, as all their beers. Black with a thin head, lace on the glass. Chocclate nose, tastes like a barleywine. Tastes a bit like an imperial stout, with chocolate, a bit of roasted barley. Cherry fruity. Significant carbonation that tingles the palate. Sampled at Modiale 2007.

FoolishMortal (987) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 30, 2007
750mL bottle. Nearly opaque brown-red with a thing film of light brown head. Dark alefruit, caramel, banana esters, and high alcohol notes in the aroma. Caramel, ruddy malt, and toasty/nutty flavors with a large alcohol presence up front. Molasses, turning figs, and a sugary fruit ester component then manifest. Spicy, rather hot finish with residual alefruit and esters. Mouthfeel is a heavy medium, somewhat sticky.

Finally! After UPS decided to break and then lose the first shipment, Joey from South Bay Drugs came through. 750mL bottle, no date. Pours a clear but deep orange brown with a one finger bright beige head that fades to a thick film after a minute. Aroma of raisins, Belgian yeast, brown sugar, alcohol, caramel and light roasted malts, and cherries. Raisins and caramel up front with some light misc. spices--nutmeg comes to mind--pear, aforementioned Belgian yeast and even some light dry wood. Roasty coffee finish with a fair amount of booze and a moderate bitterness (4 on a 1-10). Light to moderate carbonation with a medium body. Very good--the flavors blend well--but I feel this could still benefit from some aging since the alcohol is still pretty apparent and hot.

UPDATED: FEB 11, 2012 Bottle. (thx to papsoe) Even though this is a lovely beer, the label is perhaps the most fascinating about it. It poured unclear, brown, with an off-white head. Dried fruits, roastiness and sweetness in the nose. There was alcohol, dried fruits, roast, raisins and a little dash of sugar in the flavor. Full, sweet, warming mouthfeel lead to a finish with alcohol and some hops. A really lovely, warming and enjoyable beer. Rating: 7-4-8-5-16-4. 070510

Bottle, 375ml. It pours a two-finger, beige head over an unclear, dark brown body. The aroma has lots of dried fruits, with caramel, alcohol, more dried fruits, roasted notes and a little hoppy touch. It’s full-bodied and lightly warming, a bit flat maybe, but it suits the beer. The aroma has lots of prunes, a touch of alcohol, a pleasant bitterness bringing balance into the accounts, some roasted malts and also a sugary sweetness. Certainly a very well brewed beer, it was nice to have it again. 120211

WISEGUY572 (1372) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 27, 2007
Bottle from Beer Yard, a Philadelphian’s best source for almost anything from almost any brewer. Great nose of sweet dried fruits. Dark reddish brown, small head, vanishes quickly, moderate lacing, hint of only average body. Flavor of Wow! Black molasses, sweet caramel, dark roasted malts, a little bitter chocolate, and a hint of licorice, as well as the usual figs and prunes. And a long hoppy bitter finish. Wow. What fun. Pity it is so high in alcohol, almost undetected while drinking, but takes the bounce out of you soon afterwards. Great beer, and it should age wonderfully.

ABUSEDGOAT (2277) - California, USA - MAY 27, 2007
tap @ brewery: hazy reddish brown, decent retention. Aroma is a blast of raisins with more darker malts, some dark sugar and yeast. Only medium bodied, had a somewhat sweet finish with alcohol hidden fairly well. A cool take on the style with the massive fruity aroma, but I would have liked more dark malts and body.

Bottle @ my brothers (Vac) & Abby’s (zug4abby) house warming party. Poured dark brown in the glass with an off-whitehead. Unbelievable aroma! Sweet aroma of fruits backed with some malts. The flavor is much the same with prune / raisins and a malty background. Medium body and damn good!! I’m liking quads more and more every time I have an awesome one like this.

badlizard (5540) - Berkeley, California, USA - MAY 26, 2007
Tasted at Lost Abbey tasting room. Dark brown with almost no head. Candy sweet aroma. Similar to Ten Commandments, but with a more distinct raisin aroma and taste with some wine-like characteristics in the finish.
