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.

On tap at the Alehouse. Pour is a dark brown with a bubbly beige head. Aroma is dark fruit, cinnamon, brown sugar, and a flutter of roasted dark malts. Flavor is yeasty,spicy prune up front, then settles into a sweet dark caramelized sugars. Finish is a bit too clean, not much lingering flavor. Good, but not great.

Wittales (699) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JAN 30, 2013
Appearance was hazy brown with creamy lasting tannish 1/2 head, no lacing. Aromas are sweet malts, spices , chilis, funky yeasty bready thing going on. Taste are funky yeasts, touches of sweet deep malts, raisin, plum, cinnamon, chili heat. Palate was soft creamy CO2 with full body, then fruity lasting warming alcoholic yeasty finish. Different brew...

Small caged bottle. Huge slow fading pillowy head on slighty reddish brown beer. Very clear but lots of sediment in bottle. Interesting nose with chilis and tamarind noticeable...cloves and more spicy yeast notes as it warmed. Kind of flat flavors though..pretty average belgian brown. Bit of a letdown.

Corked bottle, courtesy of mcberko
Dark brown color, almost black, with medium sized creamy head.
Mild aroma I roasted malt and spices, some pepper. High carbonation, good flavor of roasted malts and dark chocolate, lean in the beginning rounder later, with pleasant piquant spiciness.
It gets better given some time to settle an oxygenate. Very good.

Thanks for the bottle, Reg! Pours dark reddish brown. I can smell and taste the house yeast upfront. Brown sugar nose. Strong flavors of sweet candies, rasins and toffee. Boozey, The spices are far in the background. Some burn in the finish.

375mL bottle, pours a deep dark amber brown with a medium beige head. Aroma of light spices (sort of cinnamon and anise), some dark fruits, caramel malts, and yeast. Flavour brings out complex notes of spices and traditional quad flavours, with cinnamon, a hint of chile and tamarind, followed by loads of yeast and dark fruits. Finishes slightly spicy and highly yeast. Mouthfeel is quite intensely carbonated, much more so than the regular Judgment Day. Good stuff, but I highly prefer the regular JD.

The pour is a deep, dark murky maroon with a moderate, foamy, frothy, pale tan head with is fully lasting leaving nice froth and similar lace. The nose is very nice with cinnamon and peppery spice noted, burnt caramel, rum-soaked raisins, English toffee, and candied dates. The flavor is much of the same still some dry, peppery, cinnamon notes, toffee, candied dates, molasses, light banana bread, and lighter raisins. The palate is nice with a full body, more than moderate carbonation, drying and chewy mouthfeel. The finish is more dry with still the cinnamon, light pepper, molasses, raisins, and some candied dates. Using the Mexican spices did add a completely different approach to the style with the dryness and spice, but I found it less enjoyable to drink than the original. Still a nice beer from an incredible brewery.

Bonus bottle share thanks Aaron. This was a great surprise pours dark brown with creamy light brown head with nice lacing along the glass. Smells of bread and cloves nice malty smell. Definitely taste the clove, raisin, plum and hints of chocolate. Overall this is a very good beer that has a hint of warming that is excellent for enjoying on the couch on a cold day.

Bottle shared by Brian! Pours a cloudy dark brown with a touch of amber and a brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of spice, fennel and clove with dark grains and chocolate. Flavor has notes of fennel and chocolate with underlying clove and spice.

Bottle, thanks Brian, pours dark brown with off white head. Aroma chipotle, brown sugar, chocolate. Flavors chocolate and raisins, cloves, phenolic yeast character. Spices get lost with a big yeast character.
