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.

drjay44 (2482) - Salida, Colorado, USA - JAN 9, 2013
375 ml. corked and caged bottle. Pours a thick, well retained light beige head, with some Belgian lacing, over a slightly hazy, brown (SRM 25) body....nose is light dried fruits, including, cherry, plum, raisin, treacle, light cinnamon.....taste is sweet fruits including plum, raisin, light cinnamon, very light chili, toffee/caramel, finishing with a light spice bitterness....mouth feel light of medium, minimally sticky, alcohol heat present, carbonation low. This is a different take on an Abt/Quadrupel. The spice additions were used quite judiciously, but are present and add their own qualities. The underlying malt, yeast contributions, are a little less complex than usual, leading to a lack of oomph from these usually reliable quarters. This all results in an interesting beer to deconstruct, but unfortunately, lacking in the best features within this wonderful style. BJCP 7/3/14/4/7

pineypower (2402) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - AUG 7, 2013
Bottle via trade. Pours a cola color with a small off white head. Aroma is of strange dried fruits, pepper, chilies, chocolate and over-ripe borderline rotted fruit. Taste is strange, earthy pepper, chilies, light heat, chocolate, dried fruits, light vegetable notes in there as well. Not my thing.

Defreni (2327) - Husum, DENMARK - MAY 11, 2013
Flaske: Brunrød klar øl med et stort fluffy skumhoved. Meget aggressiv karbonering der nærmest kan duftes ovenpå krydringen der også tydeligt træder frem. Et bid fra chilien giver en ekstra dimension der gør øllen interessant. Fin øl men lidt skuffende i forhold til at det er Lost Abbey.

dcschiller (2201) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - DEC 19, 2012
375ml bottle. Pours near black with an espresso head. Really looks more like a stout. The aroma is more quad-like though as raisins, candied sugar and other dried, dark fruits emerge. Taste is also like a quad with sweet raisins, dried figs and prunes. The cinammon, tamarind and chilis are there, but they are subtle and not overpowering. Actually, this is pretty nice. Alcohol is extremely well hidden in the flavor. No burn; only pleasant warmth in the throat and chest as it goes down. I would certainly look to pick up a couple more of these to enjoy before the world ends.

Habanero (2151) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - APR 18, 2013
Bottled. Pours hazy brown with and a medium sized tan head, that leaves a fair lacing. Aroma of slightly roasted malt, nuts, caramel, spice and chocolate notes. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry and with alcohol notes. Medium bodied, oily to syrupy texture and lively CO2. An interesting version of a quad and quite enjoyable. ★★★★
