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.

Bottle. Dark brown, large tannish head. Sweet dark malts, chocolate, spice, cinnamon, raisin, boozy, and sharp carbonation. Unfortunately the sharpness is pretty strong. Nice flavor, but overall I didn’t enjoy it too much.

jmgreenuk (4361) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 12, 2013
Bottle at the John=Jim Den Haag tasting, Den Haag. Poured a dark brown colour with a thick frothy off white head. The aroma is dry with some hoppy notes. The flavour is strong bitter and alcoholic. The palate is a little too bitter. The alcoholic bitterness is starting to dominate which doesn’t appeal to me.

Ferris (4254) - 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.

Needs some more storage to calm down for sure!

boFNjackson (4137) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 3, 2013
Tap @ Lost Abbey... Poured dark, near black with a thin head. A little bit of a mole’ thing going on here. Spice and sweetness and hint of chile pepper to keep it interesting. Toasted and roasted notes, and some sweetness. Had the spices, but balanced and not really burning or anything.

Bottle from Vinmonopolet in Valkendorfsgate, Bergen. Pours a deep red slightly hazy body, large creamy beige head. Nose is caramel, Norwegian brown cheese, toffee, raisins, figs, hints of sherry and alcohol. Taste is dark fruits, figs, raisins, burnt sugar, caramel and hints of toast and almonds. Full body, high carbonation. Solid quad from The Abbey.

dmac (4016) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - AUG 3, 2013
375ml cork and caged bottle shared by Dean. Poured a murky muddy brown with a brown small foamy head. Aroma of milk, peppers, bad stale green peppers, soap, old toast. The body was foamy with loads of carbonation, a quick fading aftertaste. Flavor is not much better than the aroma, notes of bad chocolate, old green peppers and bad bread. Not sure if I drank the same beer as all the other raters (I know I did it was a corked bottle) wish mine tasted/rated like everyone else’s.

jkwood04 (3950) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 10, 2013
375ml bottle in a tulip. Pours dark brown with a thick, lacy, light tan head. Aroma of spices, fruits, a little pepper, some caramel and chocolate, plus a light bitterness. Flavor the same with a nice blend of everything and dark fruit finish. Average texture. Not a bad beer.

jaghana (3920) - Strasbourg (France), FRANCE - OCT 2, 2013
Bottle from Jan thanks a lot. A dark amber beer with huge creamy head. Nose is intense on red fruit, spices and smooth caramel. Aroma is on smooth and creamy caramel, with spice, over ripped quetches, vanilla and cherry touch, clove hints, light chilli notes but not excessive at all. Body is very sweet, intense red candied fruits, complex, prune, toffee. Finish is more on chilli and red vegetables but still some good round caramel and Belgian yeast there, light bubble gum. This beer is very nice and remind me the Pannepeut from De Struise with additional brandy touch. Very nice, what to expect more ?
