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.

sebletitje (8116) - 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.

"#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..."

37,5 cl bottle @ home, BA 21.12.2012
Aroma is sweet with alcohol, berries, caramel and some spices. Flavour is quite messy with stinging alcohol, berries, some spices. Foamy palate is too high on CO2. Messy and boozy like some quads from Danish breweries. Somehow the feeling of alcohol fits here though. A slow sipper in LA style, worse than the others though.

Ibrew2or3 (7661) - 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.

lusikka (7621) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 29, 2013
375 ml bottle.
Pours a dark amber brown colour with a large foamy head. Aroma of sweet tart berries, dark chocolate and some alcohol. Flavour of sweet caramel, tart berries, alcohol, metallic notes, dark chocolate, some off-flavours, grass and spices. Medium bodied, massive carbonation and a long, sweet, alcohol burning, metallic finish. Horrible balance and pretty close to a homebrew. What a disappointment. Hopefully it’s just this bottle.
