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, youll 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.

KickInChalice (860) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 8, 2012
Poured from a 750 mL caged and corked bottle into a tulip. I think this is a 2011 bottle, but there is no date anywhere to be found. Right away I am kind of annoyed at this beer. With an aggressive pour, no head forms, and I am only able to create a few large bubbles that should not be confused for carbonation. The aroma is sweet and raisin forward. Dates, molasses, caramel malts, and booze are present as well. There is something a little bit strange in the taste. There are sweet, booze soaked raisins and dates up front, but there is a slightly tart and metallic apple cider flavor that throws me off a little bit. It does not seem infected, but it is not that good. Notes of caramel, molasses, toffee, and rum come through as well, with the finish still being quite sweet. How it feels on the palate is definitely a weak spot. There is no carbonation, and overall it has a syrupy texture and flavor to go along with the medium to full body. There is a slightly tannic finish. There is not much I really like about this beer.

ogniskowicz (562) - POLAND - DEC 21, 2015
Wspaniałość. Począwszy od aromatu rodzynek, gumy balonowej, spieczonej skrki razowego chleba, fig, daktyli i czekoladowej nalewki, poprzez mocarny smak z ferią suszonych owocw, lekkiej czekolady, fenolowych fuzli, a kończąc na aksamitnym, gęstym odczuciu niczym w najlepszych risach i alkoholowym grzaniu. Takie piwo mgłbym spokojnie sączyć podczas końca świata :)

leghorn99 (193) - Livorno, ITALY - DEC 12, 2015
La Judgment Day arriva nel bicchiere di colore marrone/rosso rubino, abbastanza limpida; la schiuma abbondante, fine, cremosa, color crema. Il naso offre subito un caldo benvenuto alcolico, ammorbidito da frutta sotto spirito (uvetta e prugne), leggerissimi sentori di fruit cake e di toffee. Un gusto dominato dalla frutta sotto spirito (ancora uvetta e prugne/datteri) con lalcool che sempre presente pur non andando mai sopra le righe; sembra di avvertire anche qualche nota di vaniglia. Il corpo pieno, la carbonazione molto bassa; la birra morbida in bocca, con una consistenza oleosa. Il finale secco chiude bene il percorso dolce, rimane un retrogusto morbido e caldo, ricco di frutta sotto spirito.

Pours a deep reddish brown on tap with thin ring of tan head that leaves light lace. Aroma of nice Belgian esters on dark malts, lending to dark fruitiness and hints of chocolate. Taste is more towers the Belgian without the chocolate. Really nice beer, soft carbonation, booze is moderate, well done.

ABT_S54 (322) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 13, 2015
75cl bottle served in a trappist glass. Pours a thick, clear, dark brown colour with glints of garnet with a thick, bubbly off-white head which last a few minutes. Aroma is not too strong with hints of Belgian yeast and dark fruits. Taste is strong with an upfront sweetness of Christmas cake doused in alcohol, licorice and a quite bitter aftertaste almost as though the raisins are charred before adding. Overall a very powerful brew and one that would doubtlessly be excellent at aging - the alcohol is a little too evident in this young example (I assume this year but the bottled date was smudged on the bottle). I will need to stock up on these and store for 5 years plus.

JBPortland (1370) - Portland, Maine, USA - NOV 10, 2015
2012 vintage 750ml bottle. Lots of carb still. Really well integrated nose and taste at this point with delicious dark fruit, plum, grape, some subtle dark chocolate, and bread. Just a little bit boozy on the finish. Balanced subtle sweetness. Drier than expected. Creamy mouthfeel. One of my favorite Lost Abbey beer that Ive tried to date. This is doing great.
