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.

jerohen (2046) - Bussum, - DEC 8, 2012
Bottled, bottled Nov 2011, tasted Dec 2012. Dark brown colored, big brown head. Lots of liquorice in aroma, malts, some fruity notes. Initially somewhat sour flavor, then the malts kick in, followed by lots of liquorice (Dutch "zoethout" and "salmiak"). Finishes in an unusual combination of bitterness and sourness, quite dry. Lasting and developing finish. I agree that this may be an interesting candidate for aging. Interesting brew, but for me personally the liquorice is too dominant to fully enjoy this.

neongolden (649) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 18, 2015
(375ml bottle @ VilleValla Pub, Linköping, Feb 13 2015) Pours a lightly hazed dark reddish brown with a small off white head they fades to a ring with lace. Aroma caramel, toffee, boozy rum raisin, old spices, touch of dark bread and a woody dryness. Palate has sweet caramel and toffee, toast, baked apple, raisin, prune. Gets surprisingly dry and mineral towards the finish. More toasty notes. Alcohol dryness. Medium bodied for style with fairly high carb. Quite a good quad. That dry finish is nice but I think I would have liked a longer fruity malty aftertaste to match the very best in style.

wharfrat1 (5) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 16, 2015 does not count
Big fruity esters, lots of figs, plums, and as the bottle says raisins, big sweetness in the middle, with warming alcohol and hints of cocoa on the finish, big beer perfect for a snowy winter’s night, this bottle is 2 yrs old and could easily rest for more time, very good quad

ogivlado (6079) - Zagreb, CROATIA - FEB 16, 2015
Bottled 750ml. -from Svijet Piva Zagreb. Unclear reddish/brown coloured, medium sized off-white head, cocoa powder and raisins in the nose. Roasted malty, chocolate, dried fruits, raisins and cocoa powder with discreet alcohol presence. Berries, spices and warming alcohol in the finish. Expected better.

Mr_Abner (69) - Michigan, USA - FEB 7, 2015
Bottle (bottled just over two years ago) . Pours a murky dark brown. Big raison aroma, dark fruits, strong herbal notes, rich malts, scant spice. Taste is similar, raisons most prominent. Definitely complex and rich; drinks so smooth for such a big beer. Only when it has warmed for awhile do I start to smell the alcohol, and even then the taste is well-hidden. Smooth, almost creamy mouthfeel. I think I am going to have to buy another one of these...

Strong, complex, but maybe not w too defined character, sweet and sour (from fruits), interesting, would have it again, but had better.

Schwarzbart (68) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 25, 2015
Poured a nice, creamy, tan head. Black in color with brown highlights. Fat, creamy lace arms. Big raisin aroma with wine, phenolic yeast, clove, brown sugar, figs, spices and sugary dates. Medium body with ample carbonation and very smooth. Tastes much like it smells with just a hint of alcohol and a faint grassy hop in the finish. Very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This beer is beautiful black with a rich full head. Aromas of raisins. Big bold rich flavor with notes of coffee a little sweetness that lasts and keeps developing as you drink.
