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.

Pours dark amber-brown with a small white head. Really nice aroma of dark fruits, plums, alchool, malt and some caramel, all of them well balanced. Flavor is moderate sweet with notes of alchool, plums, caramel,a bit yeasty and hoppy

superspak (2562) - Michigan, USA - AUG 21, 2014
750 ml bottle into chalice, bottled on 10/31/2013. Pours crystal clear very dark reddish brown color with a 1 finger dark khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big raisin, prune, cherry, fig, date, apple, clove, black pepper, molasses, brown sugar, toffee, toast, light chocolate, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast, raisins, and dark/bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big raisin, plum, cherry, fig, date, apple, clove, black pepper, molasses, brown sugar, toffee, toast, light chocolate, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Good amount of earthy yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of raisin, plum, cherry, fig, date, apple, clove, black pepper, brown sugar, toffee, toast, light chocolate, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, raisins, and dark/bready malt flavors; with a great crisp malt/yeast balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and slightly prickly mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is an awesome quadrupel style! All around great complexity and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, raisins, and dark/bready malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to sip on for the big ABV. A highly enjoyable offering.

Mostly yeast and red wine notes, but some oaky flavor is certainly in there as well. Very dry. A good Quad.

Pour from a bottle is a nice opaque brown with tan head with a nice roasted aroma. I get a little sweet malt flavor at first followed by a dates and raisins. Has a dry after taste.

Raisin and caramel in the aroma. Similar flavours as the aroma. Some belgian esters. Dry and a little sweet finish. Good beer.

chinchill (1799) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 24, 2014
On tap at the brewery in San Marcos. Pours clear but near black with a white head that soon reduces to a ring but leaves some lacing. Aroma: boozy aroma with some dark roasted grains and spicing. Flavor: more funky and less fruity than the aroma, but not challenging to drink. Lightly bitter finish. Feel: medium-full body; medium, lightly crisp carbonation. O: good, but ABV is too high and complexity is too low.

A pezsgős dugótól megszabadítva rendkívül tömény illatokat enged szabadjára, ha eddig kételkedtünk volna, ezt követően világossá válhat számunkra, hogy nagy fába vágtuk a fejszénket - hatalmas formátumú sörhöz van szerencsénk. Miután habja kiteljesedik és felveszi végső formáját a rubinvörös árnyalatú, sötétbarna testre telepedve, az az érzésünk támad, hogy talán hónapokig is képes lenne megmaradni ebben a magasztos pózban. Komponálni sem lehetne szebbet: puha és krémes, cappuccinóhoz hasonlatos színben pompázó korona. Az illatok közben önálló életre kelnek, és egy pillanatig sem engedik tétlenkedni szaglószervünket. Dió és mogyoró, étcsokoládé - egyenesen zserbót idéző benyomások -, majd egy csipetnyi vanília és fahéj, sötét gyümölcsök túlérett változatai, valamint illatos alkohol édesítik tovább az összképet. Rendkívül súlyos, érleléshez ideális, Trappistes Rochefort 10-hez fogható ízélményben lehet részünk a jellegéből következő óvatos kortyolása közben, hasonlóan édes, desszertszerű jelleggel, valamelyest talán kevésbé testes, ám határozottabban kesernyés lecsengésű zamatokkal. A belefőzött mazsola szelíden árnyalja a képet, csakúgy, mint a komló minduntalan felbukkanó végszava. Egyébiránt a szirupos édességtenger főszereplői az aszalt gyümölcsök (szilva, datolya, füge, stb.), a kekszes, kávésan pörkölt malátabomba és az alkohol természetes hatást keltő, szinte elvárt jelenléte.

Lukasmh (100) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JUL 20, 2014
Bottle. Pours hazy brown, bit amberish and lets no light through. One finger nut brown head. Great cealing. Aroma is a lot of raisins! Portwine, dried fruits, vanilla. Notice of the alcohol. Taste is big. Sweet, prunes, wood. Warming all through mouth but not in a alcoholic way. Oily lip and burnt malt finish. Great job! Balance is the key-word.
