COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Five thousand years ago the Mayan Calendar last turned over. Since then, Nostradamus, The Book of Revelations and random Shaman have all prognosticated that mankind would meet a fateful end. Currently, our demise is scheduled for December 21, 2012 for it has been so decreed our world is about to end not in a Christian Judgment Day but rather a Mayan Apocalypse. Funny thing is, the Mayans don’t actually believe in the concept of an Apocalypse. We at The Lost Abbey didn’t want to miss an opportunity to update our original Judgment Day recipe to accompany us as we collide towards this impending Rapture. Like us, we’re pretty sure you can believe in dried Chiles, Cinnamon and Tamarind working well together in this beer. This means you can count on this little bottle of beer to help you survive this cultural Armageddon. Please pop the cork and enjoy this version. We’ve got you covered. See you on December 22nd wherever life may take us.

Bottle enjoyed comfortably in my home, several months after the Mayan Apocalypse... good thing I kept paying the mortgage I guess. The cork nearly blew a hole in the roof, leading to a huge tan head after a ginger pour. Deep brown body. Nose is dark fruits and raison, the spices come through more as it reaches room temp. I enjoyed the base beer and it continues to be the mainstay. The cinnamon is the most noticeable spice, followed by the chilies. Not overly spicey, which I prefer (especially with a good base beer). Overall an enjoyable experience.
