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.

VictorStr (1480) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - MAY 25, 2013
Sticker till lite i näsborren. Söt från alkoholen. Akoholhalten skiner igenom alldeles för mycket. Smaken är söt med en viss hetta från chili?! Massiv jäst fällning.

Valgreen (721) - DENMARK - MAY 24, 2013
12 oz Bottle in vejle, 23/5 2013. Very dark brown, with medium lasting off white head. Nice lacing. Aroma of raisins, honey, wine, spices, some booze. Taste off grapes, honey, liquorice, spicy and dry at the end. Some dark chocolate in the aftertaste. Remind me off spicy wine. Palate is pleasant, very carbonated at first and then mellows out. Not my kind of beer, but still good.

Bottle, 375ml - Opaque dark red brown beer with a large beige head. Aroma is fruity with notes of dates, raisins, spices, honey, chicken broth and apricots. Flavor is spicy with notes of caramel, raisins, spices and licorice. Very complex and balanced beer.

StefanSD (2217) - Lakeside, California, USA - MAY 21, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 29, 2013 375ml C&C bottle from sprouts. Pours a dark brown color with a big khaki colored head that has good retention. The aroma featured dark fruits, raisins, dates and figs. The taste was similar to the nose, lot of dark fruits, nuts, and cola. The palate was full and smooth with lively carbonation. The finish was long and sweet. Overall: Nice brewski.

JorisPPattyn (8095) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAY 17, 2013
Huge yellow-beige head, big bubbled & irregular, fully resistant and leaving lace over virtually black beer. Nose bursting with exotic vegetables, herbs and fruit. Chocolate and chili peppers; promising fiery heat and complexity. Chocalte, burnt, CO³ acidity, dark fruit, coffee cream, Bitter-sweet-spicy and yet moderate heat in the mouth. Bit aldehyde-like - the cinnamon? Again dark fruit in the background, steeped in brandy. Very creamy head, spritzy liquid and velvety, full-bodied beer; warming. Simply excellent.

77ships (4405) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAY 15, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 17, 2013 "The world has ended a long time ago, we are going backward."Jhonn Balance. Thx! to Niel sampled 375 ml. corked & caged LA bottle. Pours dark brown with little beige head. Nose is dark fruits, light chocolate, spices, sweet herbs, very light licorish,… Taste is overripe dark fruits, soaked raisins, clear booze, ferment dark fruits booze, red grapes, sweet, light chocolate, mellow malts, light vanilla oak, not really getting oak,.. Bit explosive carb. Not really getting chilli here,… A clear attempt to imitate the greats of the style, solid but far from the top.

jredmond (5735) - Manhattan, New York, USA - MAY 12, 2013
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 (2687) - 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.

Bottle compliments of Brian, pours a deep purplw with medium off white head, nice lacing. Aromas and flavor of raisin, bourbon, ginger bread, peppermint, light chili, sweet malt, cinnamon bobka, dark fruit and bready yeast. Medium body for a quadruple.Well rounded quad with a kick.
