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.

radarsock (1112) - Massachusetts, USA - JAN 19, 2013
Purchased at Leary’s for $6.50. 12.7 FL OZ. bottle. Pours a syrupy darkish coalescent cordovan with a thick a legging tanned head. Aromas of pine wood, chives, sorghum molasses, raisins, toffee with hints of bourbon vanilla beans and raspberry jam. Interesting. First sip: purple raisins, milk chocolate and tangerine. Second sup: onions, plastic and caramel. Strange. Gets more vegetal by every sip. Sweetness slows down to a dull murmur. I thought this was going to be loaded with brown sugar, but I can barely even taste it. I don’t know what to say about it. Lost Abbey is such a goddamned tossup these days. Pass.

madvike (3061) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 15, 2013
Bottle shared by cptnspeed1...thanks Brad! - What a cool tick! Pours mahogany with a thin tan head. Nose has light spicing, big dark fruit, and tons of dark bread. Taste is big and malty with some light spiciness, cinnamon, and a bit of peppery heat. Dark fruit on the finish. Heat continues to build through the finish and pleasantly warms. This was a pretty fun beer.

OmegaX (1330) - Florida, USA - JAN 14, 2013
Aroma is thick with heavy red fruits, some cinnamon and light cocoa. Spices and yeast are all over this one. Very thick aromas. Pour is reddish with a nice brown head. There are a ton of spices in the flavor, with some yeast and light alcohol notes. Tamarind comes out a bit in this brew as it warms up. Very bold brew. Good stuff.

VikingHammer (506) - Lynnfield, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 13, 2013
Pours a dark brown with red edges. Head is small off white and leaves no lacing in my Hill Farmstead tulip. Head retention is decent. Aroma is dominated by booze soak raisons with hints of oak. Alcohol is so overpowering that some potentially nice flavors are lost. Mouthfeel is dry and full.

12oz Bottle
Appearance - Deep red, big toffee head
Aroma - Yeast, raisins, cinnamon, wet grass
Taste - Yeast, dark fruits, cinnamon, spicy, alcohol

This beer just got better and better as it warmed up. Incredibly fruity for a quad, and the cinnamon aided the alcohol finish quite nicely. I got to try this one thanks to the one and only OmegaX - thanks!!!

trevor211 (1402) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 12, 2013
Warm black pour, tan head. This is JD, slightly roastier, and with cinnamon and allspice added. Interesting I suppose, but these spices would have done better in a Serpents Stout.

pilgrimoutlaw (841) - Wayne, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 11, 2013
Bottle pours dark reddish black with nice thick tan foamy head. Aroma of chocolate, raisins, alcohol, cinnamon, toast. soy sauce. Moderately sweet with trailing light bitterness. Full body. Lively on top, creamy underneath. A lot like DFH Palo Santo Maron. This would probably age really well, but it’s too hot right now.
