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.

maneliquor (3103) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 7, 2013
Bottle cheers to Leighton. One of the better Lost Abbey beers I’ve had to date. Full amber pour with a rich, khaki head lasting for the duration leaving great lacing. Nose is full of dried and dark stewed fruits - sultana, date, fig. Massive toffee comes through with hints of vanilla and biscuit. Taste brings out nutty undertones - roasted walnut, fig, date, raisin, dough and toffee. Vanilla hints for sweetness. Great stuff

On bottle from Vinmonopolet Vika. Brown color, some foam. Aromas of malt, dried fruits, raisins: high aroma intensity. Medium/ full body & high complexity. Some sweetness, but very well balanced. Very enjoyable

BOLTZ7555 (2799) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - DEC 22, 2012
Sampled 12/22/12...yep, still here! Dark mahogany/mocha pour with a dense latte head that left rings of lacing. Beautifully carbonated. Chocolate covered raisins, cinnamon, plum, cracked black pepper, cocoa powder, and capsiacin. Nicely balanced spice, sweet, and heat. Unique and interesting. Enjoyed it...and I’m still alive to tell people about it!

madvike (2728) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 15, 2013
Bottle shared by cptnspeed1...thanks Brad! - What a cool tick! Pours mahogany with a thin tan head. Nose has light spicing, big dark fruit, and tons of dark bread. Taste is big and malty with some light spiciness, cinnamon, and a bit of peppery heat. Dark fruit on the finish. Heat continues to build through the finish and pleasantly warms. This was a pretty fun beer.

drjay44 (2634) - 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

Habanero (2615) - 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. ★★★★
