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.

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.

dnstone (2650) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - AUG 30, 2016
Sticky-sweet bready aroma. Pours a brown-amber color with a soft, off-white head. Moderately sweet and raisiny with a slight booze edge and light roastiness. Soft texture. Well done.

On tap at Triangle Wines Southern Pines, 10oz in snifter. Lovely dark raisiny alcohol nose. Nearly opaque brown, rapidly-thinning thin tan head lingers at perimiter and lacing glass. Displays legs and lacing in glass. Flavor is roastier than a typical quad imho, a refreshing deviation from the mostly dark fruit influence of the style. Fruitiness is abundant but not overwhelming as some are. Alcohol is unmistakable, (especially 10 mins after drinking when I stood up) but not offensive or unpleasant. Big fan of quads/Belgian Dark Strong ales. Probably among my top 5 of the style. (at least 2 are LaTrappes)

Damn thing will knock you on you arse if you are not careful! This quad is full power on the caramel, raisin, and I think they snuck some vanilla characteristics in there. Really great beer to try. 750ml bombs away.

drjoeng (857) - SINGAPORE - AUG 3, 2016
10.5%ABV. Abbey quad. Poured out black brown. 36ºSRM. Nose has red bean paste, dates, dark stone fruit preserves, boysenberry or blackcurrant jam, grape jelly, very faint licorice. Nose on 2nd approach has some wine, port and sherry aromas. Mouthfeel is syrupy. Palate is ponderous with a syrupy palate with brown sugar, honeyed dates, honeyed graham crackers, treacle, burnt sugar syrup, Alcoholic heat at the back of the throat. Hops are blunt, bitter and of the "noble" variety with a perfume-like character. There is a bit of a blunt bitter, slightly cardboard-like flavor at the end that could be argued to be a dry woody finish. Overall a very complex ride with layers of flavors and aromas that round off a Quad ride that make this a little more interesting and with a little more depth than some of the more pedestrian, commercial examples.

tom10101 (5271) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 4, 2016
Bottle (750 ml) shared at tasting by Rastacouere and Catherine (?), thanks! Hazy amber with a small beige head, good retention, leaving good lacing. Aroma is everything you can expect from a good Quad with raisins, brown sugar, dried fruits (figs, plum), Belgian yeast, mild to moderate spiciness, vinous notes and a bit of alcohol. Taste dried fruits forward with spot-on sweetness, brown sugar, alcohol, moderate spiciness and vinous notes. Medium to full body. Medium carbonation. Mouthfeel is rich. Fruity and gently warming finish. Awesome Quad! Deep, rich and complex.

hman43 (1156) - Pinehurst, North Carolina, USA - JUL 2, 2016
It pours dark brown with ruby hues. It has legs and a moderate head that produces significant lacing. It has pronounced raisin aromas. In addition there is a vinous quality to it with various earthly elements. There are flavors of raisins, vinous qualities, dark fruits, and spices. The flavors are sweet and highlighted by a sugary punch in the middle of various complex flavors. It has a full body with plenty of alochol warming. Overall, this is an awesome beer especially to any that is a fan of raisins. It has multiple complex flavors and aromas.
