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.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 25, 2013
Bottle 37,5 cl. Courtesy of Doodler. Pours a cloudy opaque nutty brown with an orange hue and a creamy, lacing beige head. Nutty, roasty nose with a touch of sweet chocolate. Solid body, somewhat overdone carbonation (!), nuts, burned caramel and spices with a slightly roasty finish. Some warming alcohol in the finish. Not so much of a Quad to me - and the excessive carbonation is quite annoying. 250313

Corked bottle, courtesy of mcberko
Dark brown color, almost black, with medium sized creamy head.
Mild aroma I roasted malt and spices, some pepper. High carbonation, good flavor of roasted malts and dark chocolate, lean in the beginning rounder later, with pleasant piquant spiciness.
It gets better given some time to settle an oxygenate. Very good.
