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.

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

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!

StefanSD (2218) - Lakeside, California, USA - AUG 29, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 30, 2008 750 ml bottle. Pours a nearly opaque dark brown color, with a one finger khaki head. The head is sudsy and hangs around a fair while leaving some lacing. Aroma is moderate in strength with black licorice, caramel, and roasted grains. Taste was complex and superb with flavors of espresso, barley, raisins, apricots, black licorice and walnuts. Hops are well integrated. Mouthfeel is full, smooth and creamy. Finish is long with a sweet black licorice lingering. Overall this is still a very well crafted beer, I will buy again. Recommended

JJClark (551) - Roscoe, Illinois, USA - AUG 26, 2007
750ml bottle from trade with John C. Thanks John! Pours a rich mahogany color with a medium size off white head. Aroma of bread dough, malt, brown sugar and over ripe fruit. Taste is yeasty and chewy. Flavor of raisns, plums and hops with a slight sweet malt undertone. Has a bit of odd flavor in the finish.

RiverHorse (457) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 26, 2007
Pours a dark amber color with a very small, quarter inch head into the trappist glass. There was barely any lacing. There was scents of raisins, malt, barley and faint alcohol. A very warming feel rushed to the palate on the first sip. Flavors of dried fruit, figs, raisins, malt and roasted nuts were present. There was a sweet play on the palate up front with a dry finish. A very good quad.

750 ml. bottle thanks to Mullman. Clear cola colored with a small beige head. Aroma of dark dried fruits, brown sugar and chocolate malt. Flavor starts off mildly sweet, with some dried fruits, brown sugar and black bread, before turning much drier on the finish.

blankboy (6632) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 24, 2007
My bottle (750ml) shared with HogTownHarry, GregClow, mds & tupalev -- courtesy of fordest. Pours a very deep hazy red with an average size diminishing off-white head. Aroma’s quite sweet with some slightly roasted caramel malt, sugar, spices and dark fruit -- very nice. Flavour’s also sweet with caramel malt, dark fruit, yeast, alcohol and spices. Some booze in the bitter, slightly astringent finish. Medium to full bodied. Very enjoyable, an excellent beer!

Poured a brown color with small head. Aroma was dark fruits, raisins yeast and some floral hops. Flavor was much the same with plums and cherries coming out. Was a good beer just nothing amazing.
