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.

Poured from a bottle into a trappist glass, no head at the start but builds slowly to a thin layer, aroma is fruity with some molasses, taste is candied fruit, licorice, caramel, the apperance is a nice deep reddish dark brown, the floow through is puctuated by the warmth of the alcohol and residual hint of sour and mild bitter

jbruner (3210) - Athens, Georgia, USA - NOV 24, 2015
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.

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.

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 I’ve tried to date. This is doing great.

Marduk (4503) - Reval, ESTONIA - NOV 7, 2015
750ml bottle (thanks Mart). Very dark brown color. Small size, thin beige head, stays. Sweet, raisins, fruity, very malty, bit of plastic too in aroma. Metallic, woody, caramel, sweet, plums, dusty, bit yeast in taste. Caramel, sweet and bit twiggy in aftertaste. Soft carbonation. Alcohol is stronk in this one. Good bye cruel world brew!

puboflyons (2711) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 4, 2015
From the corked, caged 750 ml. bottle. Bottled 04/17/15. Beautiful chestnut brown color with hints of red under a modest, tan head. The aroma is an amazing array of sweet dark malts, raisins, plum, dates, and black licorice. No booze on the nose for 10%. Deep bold body. The taste is mainly sweet with an alcohol burn at the finish but not an alcohol taste. Warming. This is what Quads are all about.

jjsint (1663) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - OCT 29, 2015
Keg at CBC Clerkenwell. Incredibly dark brown, almost black, with a hint on white head. Coffee, soy sauce, hint of stone fruit and charcoal. Nicely balanced sweet-sour taste: chocolatey sweetness and vinegar/soy/yeast sour compliment rather than clash. The finish is long and savoury, the body full, the carbonation lively. You don’t need very much of this - it hits you at maximum intensity - but it’s a joy to drink.
