3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from 750ml bottle into tulip during #bottlecherwednesday at Beachwood BBQ in Seal Beach it was hard to peg this tape-wrapped bottle. Dark red-brown in body with a small tan head that quickly settles to a thin ring. Some spotty lacing is left on the glass. Aroma is raisins, figs, plums, chocolate malt, yeast, and alcohol. Taste is strong dark fruit and caramel malt sweetness with a touch of cherry, light cocoa and spice bitterness, and alcohol on the swallow. Medium-plus body, syrupy thick texture, average to soft carbonation, alcohol and spice finish. I have read that newer bottles may be too carbonated, but think this bottle was aged some, so that may have affected the profile. I quite enjoyed this style-bending quad.

Wspaniałość. Począwszy od aromatu rodzynek, gumy balonowej, spieczonej skórki razowego chleba, fig, daktyli i czekoladowej nalewki, poprzez mocarny smak z ferią suszonych owoców, lekkiej czekolady, fenolowych fuzli, a kończąc na aksamitnym, gęstym odczuciu niczym w najlepszych risach i alkoholowym grzaniu. Takie piwo mógłbym spokojnie sączyć podczas końca świata :)

La Judgment Day arriva nel bicchiere di colore marrone/rosso rubino, abbastanza limpida; la schiuma è 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 l’alcool che è sempre presente pur non andando mai sopra le righe; sembra di avvertire anche qualche nota di vaniglia. Il corpo è pieno, la carbonazione è molto bassa; la birra è 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.

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.
