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.

dmac (4217) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - AUG 3, 2013
375ml cork and caged bottle shared by Dean. Poured a murky muddy brown with a brown small foamy head. Aroma of milk, peppers, bad stale green peppers, soap, old toast. The body was foamy with loads of carbonation, a quick fading aftertaste. Flavor is not much better than the aroma, notes of bad chocolate, old green peppers and bad bread. Not sure if I drank the same beer as all the other raters (I know I did it was a corked bottle) wish mine tasted/rated like everyone else’s.

RexTalionis (2617) - FINLAND - JUL 19, 2013
Bottle 37,5 cl, best after 21.12.2012. Pours dark brown in color with a creamy tan head. Dark fruits as in raisins, bit of yeasty notes, old cellar notes too in aroma. Sweet dark raisins fruityness in taste, some chocolate, a bit of biting hot and light spicyness as in cinnamon in flavor. Soft and moussy mouthfeel. Excellent as a dessert beer together with some ice cream. Aftertaste has even that nice vinous vibe in it.
