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.

Thanks to footy for throwing this in as an extra - I’ve had this beer a few times, but have never gotten around to rating it, so now I finally get to! - pours a very dark purple, with a small ring of off-white lace - quite a doughy aroma, with a strong boozy character, black cherry and plum - the flavor is much more dry than expected, with a strong spicy quality, cocoa flavors, raisins far in the background - the beer is a bit thin all around, allowing the high alcohol content to make its presence known - a bit of treacle-ish sweetness crops up at the end - this is nothing like Mother of All Beers - flavorful, but unrefined - brutish, even.

No head, a brown color. Smells kind of like raisins. Sweet and a little fruity, the alcohol presents itself just a bit too much. Still, pretty good.

Pours a cloudy reddish brown color with a ring of beige lace. Solid, complex, aroma and flavor of malt, chocolate, cherries, licorice and spices, yummy! The body is medium with a liquorous texture and gentle carbonation. This feels like a delicious liquid cake.

UPDATED: JAN 29, 2010 Disappointed. Poured very flat. The raisin/fruit taste I looked for, therefore, was not forthcoming. I can taste the heavy-ness to it....but without much head, I don’t really get into this beer. This beer was less than I was hoping for. Rerated with a 07 or 08. Wow. Fruit comes out more. Tart. Plumb. Cherry. Much better.

A large raisiny dry fruit aroma with a super sweet nose. A hazy bronw pour. A very sweet semi warm beer. Carbonation is full with a solid mouthfeel. A very good offering

Flavor of raisins and plums. Was decent but quite honestly expected more.

Bottle purchased at BevMo: Oceanside. An almost still pour with only the slightest bit of bubbles conjured with a vigirous pour. Loaded with raisins and alcohol in the aroma. The flavor is sticky sweet with some paint thinner qualities. Insipid palate. Another disappointment from a brewer that I expect a lot more from.

Poured dark brown with no head. Aroma of raisins and alcohol. Dark fruit flavors to begin, mostly raisin, with a light kick of alcohol in the finish. Some spice presence.

Bottle via trade with MrBendo. Initial grape like sweetness on the nose. Some pleasant yeast. A nice dry spiciness. Dried plums and raisins. Pours rich brown with nice violet highlights. Very attractive. Flavor was sweet malt with a nice yeasty and spicy dryness. Raisins and plums. Creamy on the palate. Mostly full bodied. Thanks Todd!

Smuggled back from my trip to SD. The raisin and syrup come through in the aroma. The flavor is big, thick, and syrupy. Slightly smoky malt flavors. Slightly sweet and alcoholic finish. Honestly though I liked the lost and found a little better than this one. This one got me more drunk though.
