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 from Windy City shared at Andy’s. Pours a deep mahogany body with thin bubbly lacing. Aroma is spice, cinnamon, peppers, and dark fruit. Mouthfeel is thin and carbonated with notes of dark fruit, spice, chili peppers, cinnamon, and caramel. Overall, the heat in the body really holds this back from being another Lost Abbey knockout. However, I’d be curious to get another bottle and see how age rounds this out.

Defreni (2601) - Husum, DENMARK - MAY 11, 2013
Flaske: Brunrød klar øl med et stort fluffy skumhoved. Meget aggressiv karbonering der nærmest kan duftes ovenpå krydringen der også tydeligt træder frem. Et bid fra chilien giver en ekstra dimension der gør øllen interessant. Fin øl men lidt skuffende i forhold til at det er Lost Abbey.

stefannilssons (1463) - SWEDEN - MAY 8, 2013
Det här var en bra och komplex sak dock är det lite synd att alkoholen skiner igenom. Smaken är kraftfull och komplex med smak av jäst och torkad frukt. Slutsats: bra öl, synda bara att alkoholen skiner igenom.

Jorn69 (955) - Ängelholm, SWEDEN - MAY 3, 2013
@ Havregatan. Flaska från Systembolaget (79:-). Nej, det här är inte min typ av öl. Mörkbrun, nästan svart, kryddig och fruktigt söt. Tycker alkoholen (10,5 %) går igenom för mycket.

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.
