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.

Ibrew2or3 (6767) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - FEB 3, 2013
Tap pours with a dark mahogany body and is supporting a light colored mocha head of foam. The aroma is initially loads blueberry, boysenberry and ripe juicy dark colored grapes. Then it becomes more spicy with coriander and a dash of cinnamon and then a nice sense of chocolate. The taste is full and rich with coriander like spices and then a black pepper sense as sweetness starts to fill in around the edges with a sweet mix of prunes, figs and chocolate. Tasty stuff.

sebletitje (6582) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 11, 2013
Brune, col blanc cassé moyen. Arôme garde un bouquet typique belge, mais très agréable. Fruité noir avec qcq notes d’épices, sucre candi et ce profond bouquet chocolaté et raisin. Le tout garde qcq effluves pimentées qui apportent une note de chaleur à chaque respiration. Palais offre ce profil belge typique, le tout est épais avec un niveau alcool qui se ressent. On note bien le fruité noir, surtout au niveau des raisins. Cannelle reste discrète et accompagne un profil malté conséquent; entre caramel et chocolat se terminant sur un subtile biscuité. L’ajout des piments arrive juste en fin de bouche et ne dérange pas trop, et sert à bien lier les ingrédients. Effervescence moyenne pour un profil restant belge avec tjrs cet accompagnement de raisin, sucre candi et fruité noir prenant. Une version agrémentée de piments qui fait honneur à la Judgment Day.

Scopey (6180) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 10, 2013
Bottle thanks to Leighton. It pours deep brown with a small yellowish-beige head. The nose is earthy, fruity, jam, berry, dried fruits, toasted coconut and caramel. The taste is jammy fruits, berry, sherbet, blueberry, raspberry, candy, warming alcohol, toffee and nut. Medium-full body and fine carbonation. Pretty juicy. Nice jammy character. Good depth and high drinkability for the style.

5000 (6180) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Bottle:   Deep dirty brown, huge frothy light beige head, nice lacing.   Big whole wheat bready and dark pitted fruit nose.   Smooth on the tongue, bready, somewhat heavy, with a soft alcohol background.   Not as musty as Belgian examples, but comes across as similar in every other aspect.   Smooth, hides the 10.5% ABV very well.   Doesn’t feel as big as others tho.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate   Slight grape popsicle flavor on the backside, which to me screams artificial.   No idea how to otherwise interpret that.   Sweet finish, malty, but not all that musty or barnish as other examples.   The dark pitted fruit isnt as heavy either.   The only really good quality is that its very easy to drink for 10.5% ABV, and its not a complete ripoff.   Does have some Quad qualities, albeit minor.   Thanks Ron!

Draft at sb. Pours nearly black with a dense and creamy tan head. Lots of sheeting lace. Big tart tangy nose--not sharp but still dimensional. Creamy medium body with soft but detectable carb. Dark pitted tree fruit, orange peel, and spices on the mid palate. Long pleasant dried fruit finish.
