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.

lusikka (6239) - 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.

arminjewell (6175) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 4, 2013
Pour out of 375 mL bottle, bottle opened with a loud pop, lots of carbonation. Dark reddish black pour with nice fluffy and large tan head, aroma brought notes of vanilla, dark fruits, plums, chilis, hints of cinnamon, ginger, touch of raisin, slight earthy notes. Taste is a nice mix of sweet vanilla, caramel, bready, like bread pudding almost with a creamy note, nice cinnamon, slight chili, ginger, hints of earth, grain, finishing fairly sweet, but dries out, carbonated well, finishing with some more dark fruits and sweet raisin. This is well done and very well balanced.

olio (6168) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 29, 2013
375 ml bottle. Best after 12.12.2012.
Pours dark ruby red color with a medium sized off-white head. Aroma of berries, caramel, ripe fruits and yeast. Flavor of ripe fruits, ash, berries, malts, yeast and faint spice notes. Way too strong carbonation, dry palate. Definitely a disappointment.

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.

Bottle at Schouskjelleren. Very dark, fluffy head. Dried fruit, prunes and figs. Deceivingly light mouth feel, very drinkable. White peper, salt, liquorice. The chili is very discreet. Incredible beer!

Bottle sample at a tasting at Beer Market Jaffa. Thanks Tom L. Dark brown with a beige head. Aroma of dark fruits, malt, caramel, a licorice note, mild spiciness and a bit of alcohol. Sweet flavor, a bit sourish, with malt, lots of dark fruits, chocolate, caramel and a slightly alcoholic finish. Medium to full-bodied, kinda silky.
