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.

Corked bottle, kindly shared by gunnar. ABV is 10.5%. Very dark ruby colour, nearly black. Moderate beige head. Sweetish malty and spicy aroma, nice. Malty and spicy flavour too, medium sweet, moderate notes of chili, I can’t pinpoint the cinnamon and tamarind, but I’m sure they are there.

Sample at a tasting at Systembolaget, March 2013. Dark brown with a tan head. Aroma of fruit, raisin, malt and some cinnamon. The taste was quite complex with spices, malt, dark fruit, chocolate, yeast, soap and some warming alcohol. Quite creamy mouth feel and with a long aftertaste. A good beer.

Thorpe429 (5011) - , Illinois, USA - FEB 24, 2013
Served in a Lost Abbey teku. Thanks, Moll. Nose has faint cinnamon and raisin. Faint spicing. Taste is spicy and malty with a bit of dark fruit. Bland for what it is.

Ferris (5008) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 3, 2013
Bottle - Roast malts, tamarind sourness and spice. Jet black with a thin beige head. Molasses, brown sugar, raisins and some throat heat. I like quads and I think the additions ruin what I tend to like.
