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.

ACHops (997) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 27, 2012
On tap @ Chuck’s 85th. Pours thin dark brownish black with oily lacey head. Aroma is sweet caramel malts and a hint of spice. Taste is big roasty malts, strong black licorice and anise flavors, followed by nice chile heat on the finish. Lingering hop bitterness. Don’t think I’ve had the regular judgment day, but this is nice!

MrHangover (3496) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - SEP 10, 2015
Bottle. Pours a cloudy brownish beer with a small, off white head on top that disappears really quickly. Aroma is very fruity, loads of dark fruits, some herbal and vegetal notes. Flavor has a very faint spicy note, loads of sweet ripe fruits, a decent, thick malty mouthfeel. Aftertaste is long and sweet, sticky and cloying till the very finish. Low level of carbonation. some yeastyness detected in the mouthfeel. Overall quite nice, but not really impressive as a Quad in my book.

Lasting light brown head. Clear brown coloer. A nice blend of chocolate and caramell malts in the aroma. Distinct sweetness with a complex maltiness and som bitterness.

Thanks Liz! Burgundy / copper body with a small tan head. Dark fruits aroma with a hint of spice. Hints of red wine. Malty body with notes of sweet caramel. Sweet plums, a touch of cinnamon. Good stuff.

tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - FEB 20, 2015
UPDATED: MAR 6, 2015 Bottle: Dark brown pour with ruby-red edges, topped with a light-tan foam that settles pretty quickly. Slight dark fruity tartness on the nose. Raisin, plum, black cherries, all lacquered with a big malty sweetness underneath. Caramel, toasted bread, toffee, light molasses. Don’t get much spice on the nose at all, honestly. Flavor is heavy on the caramel malt & molasses, alongside some notes of dry cocoa powder. Boozy raisins, black cherries, plums, clove, & finally a small hint of chili powder adding a bit of spice towards the back-end. Slight alcohol warmth. Finish lingers with raisin, plum, & molasses. Would have liked to see a little more of the chili, cinnamon, & spice. Not bad, just a touch underwhelming.

jookos (3728) - FINLAND - FEB 16, 2015
Bottle.355@brewdog, hki. Dark brown. Broen malty, slight spicy, but sort of lively fruity. Dark fruits, some figs, bit plummy, malty though, not too syrupy on the nose at least. Some yeasty soft full belgy notes. Full bodied, some oilyness, but finishes on a clean, long, palate. Real nice. Intensive dark fruityness, some woody flavours, chocolate, slight sweet dark fruits. A sipper for a stay-at-home, read a book- type of a dark cold evening. Bit more carbonated than your average quad, adds to the deceptive light feel.

dambor (198) - Berlin, GERMANY - FEB 3, 2015
Bottle, on 03.02.2015 (2 years after initial release?). Pours dark brown with small head, disappearing fast. Aroma: very complex aroma of raisins, chillies, coffee, some "wild" Belgian yeast, spices (cinnamon) with a strong dark chocolate foundation. Taste: also very complex, with all elements perfectly balanced: dark chocolate, coffee, raisins, subtle chilli, some wild yeast and hoppy bitterness in the background. Subtle alcohol warming in the palate. This is a very complex beer, at the same time with no "in your face" effect regarding any of the ingredients (perfect balance!). Fantastic stuff. Ont of the most complex quads I ever had.

375ml corked bottle. Rich chocolate aroma with notes of cinnamon and dark fruit. Pours dark brown with a thin tan head and some lacing. Starts with dark chocolate as well as dark fruit, mostly raisin, flavors. Finishes fairly smooth with notes of cinnamon as well as a bit of booze that lingers with the chocolate on the palate. Rich, complex beer.

hackobock (2302) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 31, 2014
December 27, 2014. Bottle at home.
Murky brown with a small tan ring. Aroma is caramel, canned peaches, pear, prunes, figs, raisins and alcohol. Finish is light bitter with sweet fruits, light roasted notes and faint alcohol. Medium bodied, a bit water texture, almost flat carbonation.
