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.

Pours a medium brown with a small beige head that leaves good lacing. Nose is of grapes, brown sugar and, surprisingly, cereals. Taste is moderately sweet with some nice, classic grapes again and a little alcohol. Not overdone in any way and quite enjoyable. Body is full and mouthfeel is rich and sugary. A nice big quad, I wish we could get small bottles of that!

jc1762 (572) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 4, 2016
Tap into a wineglass showing two full fingers of clean white foam showing lightly filtered dark caramel brown. The nose shows a lot of caramel malts with a strong Belgian yeast influence. The palate is lightly carbonated and lightly bodied. Flavors of the same caramel malts with a strong Belgian yeast influence and moderately sweet raisins. High alcohol creates a spiciness on the palate. Bitterness on the end comes out from the hops and seems a bit out of place.

AdolfoCC (130) - Veracruz, Veracruz, MEXICO - MAY 24, 2016
Servida en un caliz. APARIENCIA: de color marrón intenso con destellos rojizos a contraluz, corona de espuma color beige de mediana a baja retención, de burbujas compactas y algunas abiertas. AROMA: muy licoroso, recuerda al jerez, frutos oscuros maduros destacando las pasas, además de moras, zarzamoras, azúcar no procesado. SABOR: vuelven a dominar los frutos oscuros, pasas, dátiles, ligeramente zarzamoras, notas vinosas, azúcares no procesados, seguido de un amargor medio bajo; en el retrogusto vuelve a aparecer ese amargor medio bajo, seco, y una sensación calidad en garganta por el alcohol. SENSACIÓN: cuerpo medio, con carbonatación media a alta, se alcanza a sentir un crispar en lengua por ello. RESUMEN: una buena cerveza con adecuado manejo de adjunto, un tiempo en guarda le vendría bien.

SteveOrz85 (203) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 17, 2016
Poured from large corked and caged bottle. Served in tulip glass. Big fluffy tan head. Beer is dark in color. Some light passes through. Significant lacing sticks around a while. Aroma is fairly strong with mostly dark fruites. Taste is sweet with some light bitterness. Malty. Notes of dark fruits like raisins, figs and prunes. Smooth thick, heavy, oily texture. Little less than average carbonation. Full bodied beer. Pretty good beer overall but almost to thick and heavy which makes it difficult to drink more than half a glass.

tomekboniek (454) - Warsaw, POLAND - APR 23, 2016
Butelka. Barwa ciemno brunatna z wysoką beżową dobrze utrzymującą się pianą. Aromat przyjemny, średnio intensywny. Suszone, dojrzałe owoce, czekolada, delikatne zioła, śliwka, wiśnia. W smaku bardzo złożone, oprócz ciemnych owoców bardzo przyjemna czekolada, kandyzowane śliwki, karmel, kakao. Ogólnie słodycz z dobrym wyczuciem. Bez problemu można w ciągu godziny wypić całą butelkę ( 750 ml). Wysycenie średnie do wysokiego, goryczka średnia bardzo przyjemna z nutą szlachetnego alkoholu. Struktura pełna, niemalże oleista. Bardzo przyjemne, wysokiej klasy piwo.

dark brown colour with ruby notes, huge, dense and stable beige head; aroma of cocoa powder, dried sour cherry, plum, maybe figs, too, some herbs and hints of carmel; taste of dark chocolate, dried fruits (sour cherry, plum and raisins), some roastedness and herbal liqueur notes; great quadrupel

Incredible quadruple. Full of flavor. Dark color. Creamy head. Easy to drink, but watch out, 10.5%. Has a hint of a Trappist ale aroma. Would love to taste this barrel aged. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Claves77 (215) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 4, 2016
Rich, deep, dark color. Toast malty smell. Strong powerful taste, with smooth lasting flavor. Hint of raisin comes through. Excellent beer comparable, just slight short of the top Belgians.

butelka, z 2015 chyba, nie pochwalili sie, w kazdym razie raczej mloda. ciemno bursztynowo-brazowe, opalizujace piwo z bardzo bujna piana, ktora opada i zostaje az do konca cienka warstewka. aromaty glownie suszonych, troche kandyzowanych owocow, troche suszu wigilijnego, wlacznie z przyprawami, sa i rodzynki (choc nie jakies dominujace, co mozna by obstawiac po tym, ze lezalo z nimi), figi, sliwki, gozdziki. sa tez slodowe, nieco chlebowe nuty, karmel, melasa, wanilia, ciut pumpernikla, w tle kakao, guma balonowa, moze troche bananow, niemalo ziolowosci. w ustach nieco syropowe, srednio wysycone, slodkie, ciut kwaskowate, generalnie powtorka z aromatow, z ziolowa goryczka, alkohol bardzo dobrze schowany za tym wszystkim, odczuwalny glownie jako rozgrzewanie i w posmakach nieco poszczypujacych... rowniez w posmakach ziolowosc daje o sobie znac, i to w moim odbiorze niedokonca przyjemnie. srednia pelnia. w caloksztalcie ewidetnie bardzo dobre, bardzo zlozone, niemniej zarazem nie do konca pod moj gust (zwlaszcza ziolowosc, zwlaszcza w posmakach), jednak klasyki z beneluxu bardziej mi pasuja.
