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.

hopscotch (10644) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 20, 2013
Bottle... Cloudy, dark brown ale with no head. The nose furnishes an intermingling of cocoa, spice-rack goodies, dark raisins, vanilla and toasted nuts. Medium to full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and laid-back carbonation. The flavor is tangy, chili pepper-spicy and moderately bitter. Acrid, lightly bitter, tangy cocoa finish. Bottle courtesy of 50belair!

"#4500! Cin and peppers expected, tamarind was not. Totally cool, unique, and decadent unexpected treat. I like the base beer and this version was deeelicious. Low heat, all kinds of complexity, and sweetness..."

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - JAN 4, 2013
375mL from Bine&Vine. Murky, muddy, deep brune pour. Towering dark tan head. Big bubbles, okay retention. Nose is pretty nice milk chocolate, hot cocoa, muted nutmeg/allspice, sweet/spicy tamarind (this time tamarind is actually in the beer...a first?). Very nice. Taste is dense, yeasty, filling with spices, alcohol, more alcohol...almost flavored vodka like booziness...made me shake with near gag reflex after notes of vodka surfaced. I took way too big of a swig..this is a sipper. Ok, now it is tolerable with dark rum, semisweet chocolate, spiked egg nog. Palate is dense, powdery, some silkiness. Overall a bit yeasty/muddy with some spicy chocolate dessert flavors that work better than just the dark cherry character of normal Judgment Day. I enjoyed it. Let it warm and the Abbey Quadrupel notes come into play- chocolate, yeast, sweet alcohol warming. On style even with all the adjuncts.

Bottle. Dark amber pour with a brownish head. Dark fruit, chili peppers, and a little spice in the aroma. Smooth palate. Very tasty - really digging this!
