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.

Scopey (6812) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 10, 2013
Bottle thanks to Leighton. It pours deep brown with a small yellowish-beige head. The nose is earthy, fruity, jam, berry, dried fruits, toasted coconut and caramel. The taste is jammy fruits, berry, sherbet, blueberry, raspberry, candy, warming alcohol, toffee and nut. Medium-full body and fine carbonation. Pretty juicy. Nice jammy character. Good depth and high drinkability for the style.

maneliquor (3103) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 7, 2013
Bottle cheers to Leighton. One of the better Lost Abbey beers I’ve had to date. Full amber pour with a rich, khaki head lasting for the duration leaving great lacing. Nose is full of dried and dark stewed fruits - sultana, date, fig. Massive toffee comes through with hints of vanilla and biscuit. Taste brings out nutty undertones - roasted walnut, fig, date, raisin, dough and toffee. Vanilla hints for sweetness. Great stuff

On bottle from Vinmonopolet Vika. Brown color, some foam. Aromas of malt, dried fruits, raisins: high aroma intensity. Medium/ full body & high complexity. Some sweetness, but very well balanced. Very enjoyable

Leighton (10960) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 5, 2013
Bottle shared at Bruce’s in London - this one I got at THE Kris Wines. Pours rich, amber-brown with a creamy tan head. Nose has dry fruits, some rich bread. Medium to big sweet flavor, brown sugar, toffee, cherries, hints of coffee and cocoa. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Mildly warming to finish, lots of ripe, dried fruits, dusty cocoa. Rich and pretty well balanced. Nice depth. Very drinkable.

Ferris (4126) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 3, 2013
Bottle - Roast malts, tamarind sourness and spice. Jet black with a thin beige head. Molasses, brown sugar, raisins and some throat heat. I like quads and I think the additions ruin what I tend to like.

375 ml bottle. Dark black porter pour, thin texture. Aroma of sweet candy sugar, I don’t pick up any spices. Taste is fairly carbonated, some plumb, the spice comes in on the finish.

Reynolds314 (2324) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 24, 2013
A pretty average quad witout a ton of uniqueness as youd expect from all the flavors added. I dont get much beyond the normal quad dark fruits and spicy belgian yeast. A bit sweet and syrupy.

TET (1641) - FINLAND - OCT 20, 2013
A cork open with a nice pop. A beer is dark brown with a big, dense and yellowish beige head. The nose is interesting and very tastefull, sweet strawberries, dark fruits, spices, some aromatic perfume nuancees. Taste is intensive, dark dried fruits, some earthyness, hint of strawberries, the long end is spicy and have an influence on chilis. With yeast the taste is very smooth and each compenents are better balanced. Almost full bodied, high and smooth carbonation. The great aroma, also balanced and enjoyable beer with saucy.

ABS (461) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 13, 2013
Pours almost black. Medium amount of brown head. Stingy, warming mouth feel at first, but gets a bit more rounded after a while. Sweet and bitter. Raisins, alcohol, plum, coffee, chocolate, malt. Good, but a bit too extreme alcohol.
