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.

Poured from a bomber into a tulip glass. Thin, tan head that dissipates quickly to a rim around the glass. Nearly black body with tiny bubbles streaming up the glass. Dark and almost intimidating. Looking up through the beer, you can tell it is clear, despite the darkness, and this perspective shows a dark chestnut color. Warm fruity aroma with notes of prune, brown sugar, spice, and alcohol. Nice roasted malt with a hint of milk chocolate initial flavor with light bitter aftertaste that is relatively long lived with an alcohol finish. This brew comes across almost as a strong stout/barley wine cross. It is full bodied with slightly syruppy feel that coats the side of your tongue and the back of your throat. The lively, almost fizzy carbonation keeps it ffrom feeling too heavy. Overall, this beer has a nice subtle aroma that is reliatively complex and pleasant. THe taste is excellent and the mouthfeel is nicely balanced with a full body that is lightened a little by the carbonation.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2013 This just might be better than Westy 12. I’ll give you all a moment to take that in and ponder a bit. Done? Alright then. I’m very serious about the Westy 12 comment, though. This is one complex, delicious and enjoyable beer. And I can actually buy it here in PA! That alone gives it an edge over the Westy. The intense experience begins with a great pour. The color is almost pitch black, with only a dark reddish tint. The head is tan in color, massive, thick and clings to the body of the beer. The nose is fantastic and inviting, begging you to take that first sip. Notes of the aroma are of dark fruit, currants, red grapes, light bread, yeast, raisins, sweet malts and brown sugar. The body is incredibly smooth and dangerously drinkable. The flavors are so well-balanced and delicious, it’s almost overwelming. I get notes of very light chocolate, light cream, aged red grapes, yeast, brown sugar, bread, fruits and a great balance of just enough hops. There is also a slight hint of alcohol on the finish, but that is quickly washed away by those fruity and malty tones. Judgement Day has very quickly become one of my favorite all-time beers. I recommend that every single human on the face of this planet buy at least one bottle of this and give it a try. You won’t be disappointed. You’ll thank yourself. Gimme more! Damn, this is great!

santos999 (318) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 22, 2008
Dark ruby/purple body with a small but long lasting off-white head. Spotty lacing. Potent fig, rum and cake batter aroma with burnt brown sugar, caramel, oak, molasses, raisins and chocolate. The taste is oaky to start with lots of bourbon. The middle is sweet caramel and brown sugar. The finish is chocolate and molasses with tons of dark fruits - figs, raisins, plums, and dates. This beer is unbelievable and proves entirely why Tomme is one of the best brewmasters we have in America. Bold yet subtle, extreme yet refined, complex yet refreshing. I love it.

750 mL bottle poured into a tulip glass. Fantastic beer, classic Belgian style. Pours a dark brown color, very little head/lacing. Medium to low carbonation. caramel, raisin, alcohol is very well hidden. Great beer!

SPDickerman (920) - Texas, USA - MAR 16, 2013
Pours super dark brown with a small yellowish brown head. Smells strongly fruity, lots of dark fruits, and hints of caramel and toffee. Taste is intense: boozy, rum soaked raisins, raisins, dark fruits, caramel, toffee, and hints of kitchen spices. Full-bodied with a smooth texture and medium mouth-carbonation, Lost Abbey Judgment Day finishes almost overly sweet and has no real balance, but it doesn’t linger too long.

Kinz (3257) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - NOV 26, 2007
Richmond "industry" gathering. Dark brown appearance. Huge caramel malt and cherry aroma. Flavor is thickly malty in the vein of a Thomas Hardy brew. Great depth of flavor. Hint of earthiness in the finish. Awesome brew. Another favorite from the tasting.

Vintage 2008 "Saints". 750ml bottle, caged and corked.
Very dark color, Solid black with a hint of a reddish hue. Rusty brown colored head. Whoa, what an aroma. Scents of caramelized sugar, dark sugar, deep malts, lots of dried fruit. The nose is all Raisin! Tastes of burnt sugar, lots of dark fruits, sticky sweetness, light cherry and plum. Finishes with a lingering taste of raisins. Very tasty, it is a meal in a glass. ABV is very well hidden, I sense no alcohol or heat at all. Drinks very smooth, creamy, and full of dark fruit. Somebody has been taking lessons from the Trappists...
My 2200th Rating, my 222nd California Rating & Happy 33rd Mattie!
