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.

mcberko (14362) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 25, 2013
375mL bottle, pours a deep dark amber brown with a medium beige head. Aroma of light spices (sort of cinnamon and anise), some dark fruits, caramel malts, and yeast. Flavour brings out complex notes of spices and traditional quad flavours, with cinnamon, a hint of chile and tamarind, followed by loads of yeast and dark fruits. Finishes slightly spicy and highly yeast. Mouthfeel is quite intensely carbonated, much more so than the regular Judgment Day. Good stuff, but I highly prefer the regular JD.
