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.

Sampled at Lost Abbey on 3/19//2014. This Abbey Quad pours a dark amber brown color from the tap. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is dark fruit, dates, brown sugar and some chilies. Medium to full bodied Abbey Quadruple. The malts are dark fruit and sweet, brown sugar, molasses and dates. The hops are herbal and earthy. Big dark quad with some chili and other spices. Light carbonation. Nice balance between the malts and the spices. Very smooth. Finish is smooth and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is sweet with a touch of spice.

375 ml bottle purchased at Holiday Wine Cellar just over a year ago just prior to the supposed Mayan Apocalypse in December 2012 ($5.99). Pours a dark brown with lots of red mixed in. The two fingers of brown-ish foam has a very cola-like effervescence that quickly dissipates. AROMA of rich toffee, sticky caramel, toasted nutty malts, some dark fruitiness, but little of the Mayan adjuncts with the possible exception of the cinnamon. FLAVOR of dark roasted malts (notes of dark chocolate, cereal, and roasted nuts), dark caramel, and somewhat weak but still perceptible "Mexican / Mayan" elements: chili heat, dry cinnamon, and a little sticky sweet-sour tamarind. Lightly sweet like the normal Judgment Day. Finishes with chocolate and a hint of smoke. As with the regular version, the great big ABV is generally well concealed. Good effort, but would have liked to see more of the adjuncts which might have mixed well with the base quad. (214, 841)

At a tasting, thanks tom, big off white head, hazy deep brown colour, aroma of graphite, dried fruits, winey notes, candle wax and some alcohol, bready malty flavour with some sour fruitiness, very light bitterness. Not too exciting.
