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.

Grzesiek79 (3366) - Radom, POLAND - MAY 1, 2014
Znakomite quadrupel amerykanskie. Fajna buteleczka korkowana, a korek hucznie strzelil. Aromat porto i winiaku. Wyglad to piekne ciemnobrazowe piwo z bordowym refleksem. Metne na koniec ze prawie czarne sie robi. Bardzo ladna i trwala piana jak na ten gatunek. Jest trwala, kremowa i bezowa. W smaku jakby sliwki, rodzynki i rum. Alkoholowa nuta wyczuwalna. Szlachetny alkohol przyjemnie rozgrzewa i relaksuje. Wspaniale piwo, swietnie pasowalo do francuskiego sera plesniowego. Polecam

As someone who normally doesn't go for Belgian strongs, let me be the first (?) to say that this is an impressive one. All the strong Belgian notes are spot on: slightly malty backbone, well masked ABV, high carbonation, etc. The twist of the spices that the brewer added makes it interestingly impressive. While the spices are present throughout, I especially like how the spiciness lingers for a while afterwards. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: MAY 17, 2013 "The world has ended a long time ago, we are going backward."Jhonn Balance. Thx! to Niel sampled 375 ml. corked & caged LA bottle. Pours dark brown with little beige head. Nose is dark fruits, light chocolate, spices, sweet herbs, very light licorish,… Taste is overripe dark fruits, soaked raisins, clear booze, ferment dark fruits booze, red grapes, sweet, light chocolate, mellow malts, light vanilla oak, not really getting oak,.. Bit explosive carb. Not really getting chilli here,… A clear attempt to imitate the greats of the style, solid but far from the top.

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!

dambor (110) - Berlin, GERMANY - FEB 3, 2015
Bottle, on 03.02.2015 (2 years after initial release?). Pours dark brown with small head, disappearing fast. Aroma: very complex aroma of raisins, chillies, coffee, some "wild" Belgian yeast, spices (cinnamon) with a strong dark chocolate foundation. Taste: also very complex, with all elements perfectly balanced: dark chocolate, coffee, raisins, subtle chilli, some wild yeast and hoppy bitterness in the background. Subtle alcohol warming in the palate. This is a very complex beer, at the same time with no "in your face" effect regarding any of the ingredients (perfect balance!). Fantastic stuff. Ont of the most complex quads I ever had.

Tart, dry, vinous. Tannin like in wine. Thin, bright mouthfeel. Slight chili burn in aftertaste. Excellent stuff.
