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.

Wee corked bottle cons 2013-03-20 Göteborg (from SB) AR: chocolate on chocolate AP: deep dark brown colored body, stouthy steady light brown head F: fizzy, vinos, plum marmelade, filled chocolate pralinas, warming feeling, quite bitter, took away the desturbing carbonation but then the alcholic is getting to evident. Needs some more storage to calm down for sure!

Countbeer (6185) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - AUG 8, 2013
Bottle: Served in a Chouffe glass: Brown pour. Medium to bigger sized beige foamy head on top of a deep dark red colored beer. Aromas of red fruit, strawberries and berries, yeast, chalk, leaves, wood, hint of peppery dust, cinnamon and meat, some malts, toast and liquorice (wood). Flavours of spices like pepper, nutmeg and cinnamon, dry, bitter, malt toast, berries, some strawberries and a hint of cherries, barley malts, nuts, leaves, some autumnal herbs and hay toast. Aftertaste is toasty, malty, peppery, woody and porridge. Low to medium carbo, creamy and lightly blown spicy mouthfeel, full body and a creamy texture. One part of me really likes this beer with the pepper and such but the other half misses some interesting/complex body. Good beer but not what I expected.

ClarkVV (5798) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - APR 5, 2014
Bottle from Martys, drunk 4/5/14
Very fragrant nose, pralines and toffee, quite lighthearted for such a big beer. Some light prunes add tartness and the caramel-vanilla cream sweetness actually sits in the background.
Dark, mahogany with ruby tints. The head is light tan and moderately well-retained.
Phew. Strong. Chiles are very lightly notable and sweet chocolate, tart prunes and almost a mint-like spiciness really shock the palate. Warmth on the end, though it’s not overtly alcoholic. Toffee sweetness is chewy, but the ample, expansive carbonation obliterates any sense of syrupiness/thickness that may exist here. Still, you can’t hold back such bold flavors, even with the disruptive carbonation, and it gets pretty fatiguing after just a few sips. Do love the chiles, though and the chocolate-cinnamon note is quite reserved and adds more complexity. Actually quite astringent on the finish. Like eating a dried red chili pepper soaked in tamarind and soy sauce. Ok, not really. I don’t know. Seems pretty far-gone from the base Judgment Day. Belgian, strong or light are still subtle beers and chili, cinnamon and tamarind really don’t work with them. Or so I think.

dmac (5595) - 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.
