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.

Lambister (367) - FINLAND - JUN 15, 2013
375 ml bottle, thanks to K0mpsa. Dark brown, hazy liquid with pretty big head. Strong bite and alcohol comes through too much. Still aromas of rye and toasted nuts are pretty well presented. All in all good taste but just too strong for me.

375ml bottle in a tulip. Pours dark brown with a thick, lacy, light tan head. Aroma of spices, fruits, a little pepper, some caramel and chocolate, plus a light bitterness. Flavor the same with a nice blend of everything and dark fruit finish. Average texture. Not a bad beer.
