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.

375ml bottle in a tulip. Pours dark brown with a thick, lacy, light tan head. Aroma of spices, fruits, a little pepper, some caramel and chocolate, plus a light bitterness. Flavor the same with a nice blend of everything and dark fruit finish. Average texture. Not a bad beer.

jaghana (3697) - Strasbourg (France), FRANCE - OCT 2, 2013
Bottle from Jan thanks a lot. A dark amber beer with huge creamy head. Nose is intense on red fruit, spices and smooth caramel. Aroma is on smooth and creamy caramel, with spice, over ripped quetches, vanilla and cherry touch, clove hints, light chilli notes but not excessive at all. Body is very sweet, intense red candied fruits, complex, prune, toffee. Finish is more on chilli and red vegetables but still some good round caramel and Belgian yeast there, light bubble gum. This beer is very nice and remind me the Pannepeut from De Struise with additional brandy touch. Very nice, what to expect more ?

tiong (3611) - Espoo, FINLAND - JUN 29, 2013
375ml bottle

Pours dark brown, almost black, with a foamy head. Aroma of syrup, malts, dark ripe fruits, spices and hints of roastiness. Taste is carbonated, sweet, and syrupy with notes of dark ripe fruits, spices and caramel. Finish is sweet, carbonated and spicy with some licorice, syrupy and caramely toffee notes. Unbalanced, a bit messy.

Idiosynkrasie (3582) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - AUG 29, 2013
375ml bottle. Darkest brown colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, tan head. Somehow cautious and indifferent aroma, hints of chocolate, unspecific dark fruit, spices, cinnamon. Taste is moderately sweet, dark malty, hints of dark fruit, plum, grapes and the like, dark chocolate, chili, cinnamon, some warming alcohol in the finish. Heavy stuff, somehow without emphasis, not really satisfying.

77ships (3540) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAY 15, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 17, 2013 "The world has ended a long time ago, we are going backward."Jhonn Balance. Thx! to Niel sampled 375 ml. corked & caged LA bottle. Pours dark brown with little beige head. Nose is dark fruits, light chocolate, spices, sweet herbs, very light licorish,… Taste is overripe dark fruits, soaked raisins, clear booze, ferment dark fruits booze, red grapes, sweet, light chocolate, mellow malts, light vanilla oak, not really getting oak,.. Bit explosive carb. Not really getting chilli here,… A clear attempt to imitate the greats of the style, solid but far from the top.

Enjoyit (3445) - Vadum, DENMARK - MAR 13, 2013
Deep brown of color with a longlasting beige head. An aroma of coffee, spice, chocolate and liqurice notes. A flavor with dark fruits, chocolate, coffee, malty and a nice well balanced spicy finish.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 5, 2013
Bottle from Bine & Vine. Pours a deep brown-nearly black with a robust tan head. Nose is super spicy, yeast driven. Clove and pepper dominate. Some earthy chile notes and cinnamon. Tamarind is lost. On the palate, some cocoa and a faint chile heat. The yeast is just too much overall for this beer to work right, imo. Cinnamon pushes the dryness as well. Meh.

BillKismet (3321) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 25, 2012
Cola body with a super airy cola and foam head. Belgian cinnamon spice nose with dashes of chocolate raisin and chocolate cookie crusts. Raisiny body accented by caramel malts and Special B, no doubt. Well balanced and enjoyable. Powerful, yet stays within itself. Nicely crafted. Seems to improve with each sip.
