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.

thornecb (5445) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 21, 2012
Pours deep mahogany into a trappist glass. Tan head with excellent retention recedes leaving scant sheets. Vanilla and chocolate aromas. Dry with sweet chocolate and vanilla upfront turning to sour pit fruit in the lasting earthy finish.

jaghana (5439) - Strasbourg (Alsace), 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 ?

ClubGonzo (5399) - Bergen, NORWAY - NOV 1, 2013
Bottle from Vinmonopolet in Valkendorfsgate, Bergen. Pours a deep red slightly hazy body, large creamy beige head. Nose is caramel, Norwegian brown cheese, toffee, raisins, figs, hints of sherry and alcohol. Taste is dark fruits, figs, raisins, burnt sugar, caramel and hints of toast and almonds. Full body, high carbonation. Solid quad from The Abbey.

jookos (5370) - 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.

JohnnyJ (5367) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 6, 2013
Bottle. Dark brown, large tannish head. Sweet dark malts, chocolate, spice, cinnamon, raisin, boozy, and sharp carbonation. Unfortunately the sharpness is pretty strong. Nice flavor, but overall I didn’t enjoy it too much.

beerguy101 (5356) - Newark, California, USA - MAR 19, 2014
Sampled at Lost Abbey on 3/19//2014. This Abbey Quad pours a dark amber brown color from the tap. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is dark fruit, dates, brown sugar and some chilies. Medium to full bodied Abbey Quadruple. The malts are dark fruit and sweet, brown sugar, molasses and dates. The hops are herbal and earthy. Big dark quad with some chili and other spices. Light carbonation. Nice balance between the malts and the spices. Very smooth. Finish is smooth and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is sweet with a touch of spice.

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.

Served in a Lost Abbey teku. Thanks, Moll. Nose has faint cinnamon and raisin. Faint spicing. Taste is spicy and malty with a bit of dark fruit. Bland for what it is.
