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.

Tap @ Lost Abbey... Poured dark, near black with a thin head. A little bit of a mole’ thing going on here. Spice and sweetness and hint of chile pepper to keep it interesting. Toasted and roasted notes, and some sweetness. Had the spices, but balanced and not really burning or anything.

hopscotch (9846) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 20, 2013
Bottle... Cloudy, dark brown ale with no head. The nose furnishes an intermingling of cocoa, spice-rack goodies, dark raisins, vanilla and toasted nuts. Medium to full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and laid-back carbonation. The flavor is tangy, chili pepper-spicy and moderately bitter. Acrid, lightly bitter, tangy cocoa finish. Bottle courtesy of 50belair!

pours a deep mahogany. Nice thick, three fingers of off white head. Lots of plum and raisin on the nose. A slight hint if heat, but it’s faint. Flavor is a lot more of the same plum raisin dark fruit flavor. A touch of cinnamon on the finish, and a hint of heat.
