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 (1963) - 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.

Dark brown with a little head. Aroma and taste: caramel, alcohol, maybe dark fruits. Good at the first drink; the second, maybe too hard; after, too weary in my opinion. Not bad, but only for the brave.

RAISINS!!!! Seriously, from nose to flavor, they’re there. Dark fruits, boozy, a real sipper. Love me a good Belgian style quad.

Iphonephan (2697) - McLean, Virginia, USA - APR 17, 2014
On draft at the brewery. Pours a clear cola with a tan head. Aroma of dark cherries. Flavors of cherry, raisin and caramel. Medium bodied. Slight tart finish.

Davhgbrew (889) - Coconut Creek, Florida, USA - APR 8, 2014
Served 38-40 degrees, def too cold so I’m trying to slow sip. Sips with a complex blend of dark fruit. Plums, cherries, alc, and some spicy yeasty flavors, molasses. Very smooth and easy drinking quad. I would love to get a bottle of this to compare to the draught.

ROBC3366 (370) - north reading, Massachusetts, USA - APR 8, 2014
Yeasty and fruity with hints of booze. Main thing I picked up is the carb, which was nice because I was expecting a flat beer, this being Lost Abbey. Well balanced and a good showcase for the american version of the quad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

minutemat (890) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2014
75cl bottle @ the 3rd Shrewsbury Bottle share, courtesy of Simon F. This pretty much nailed the night for us. Big caramel aroma with dark fruits.. taste really packs a punch with those raisins shining through alongside some lovely moist fruit cake. Very nice indeed.

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.

75 cl flaska från Broadway. Kolsvart i färg med ett lätt skum. Ganska kolsyrad. Plommon och choklad i doft som återfinns i smaken oxå.

Very decent stout, but nothing impressive. As drinking along it gets better.
